The Milwaukee Bucks are getting back a key player for the Eastern Conference Finals. Guard Malcolm Brogdon has announced that he is not only ready to go but feels 100-percent healthy. In an interview with Undefeated writer Marc Spears, Brogdon claimed that he is ready to help the Bucks face the Toronto Raptors after sitting out most of the Boston Celtics series:
“I’d say that I am at 100 percent right now. For most guys, they want to stay in rhythm. That is how I think most pros are. We want a little rest. Maybe two or three days. But once you get to the four- or five-day mark, you feel like it can affect you. You can come out sluggish. We had that sluggish effect after we came out after the Detroit series against Boston. But for me, I’m so geared up. I’m so ready to play.I was enjoying playing in the last game against the Celtics. I wish we could’ve played sooner. But you have to deal with the hand you’re dealt.”
This is welcome news to Bucks fans. They know Malcolm Brogdon is a vital cog for this team. The Virginia product put up excellent numbers in the regular season, averaging 15.6 points a game on 51 percent shooting from the floor. He has worked to become a dead-eye shooter, knocking down 43 percent of his 3-pointers.
Brogdon gives the Bucks yet another shooter to space the floor for MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo. He will probably be inserted back into his starting role as Milwaukee attempts to knock off the Raptors and Kawhi Leonard, which would enable the Bucks to reach the NBA Finals.
