Jason Kidd hopeful Eric Bledsoe can join Bucks tonight or tomorrow
The Milwaukee Bucks and head coach Jason Kidd are anxiously anticipating the arrival of their new point guard Eric Bledsoe, who is undergoing his physical exam today, according to Matt Velasquez of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Kidd is hopeful Bledsoe can join the team tonight or tomorrow to get him up to speed with the team’s plan moving forward.
The former Phoenix Suns guard has been out of action since the end of the first week of the season, trying to keep in shape through workouts at local universities after being ostracized from teams facilities.
More so that the change in scheme from one coach to another, the Bucks will concern themselves the most with his in-game shape, with the rest of the roster with a little over two weeks of game runs ahead of the 6-foot-1 all-around dynamo.
Milwaukee has now lost their last four games after starting the season 4-2, and will need Bledsoe’s help to get back to the .500 mark as soon as possible.
The Bucks are expected to line him up next to Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon in the backcourt, keeping Khris Middleton, star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, and John Henson as members of the starting frontcourt.
