Malcolm Brogdon could return by late March, early April
After suffering a partially torn left quad earlier this month, Milwaukee Bucks point guard Malcolm Brogdon has since been given a six to eight week timetable for a return. Now, an update has been given on his road to recovery, and is slated to be back on the court by the end of March or early April if he doesn’t suffer any setbacks, according to Matt Velasquez of the Journal Sentinel.
No official timetables given yet. Delly could be some time this week or next dependin how his progress continues. Given intial 6-8 week timeline, Brogdon could be back by the end of March/beginning of April. Again, that's if all goes according to plan. https://t.co/6WMFxu8zUi

After his impressive first season last year where he won the Rookie of the Year Award, Brogdon has not been able to play at the same level, mostly due to the inconsistent amount of playing time he’s received. With Eric Bledsoe now part of the team, it could mean less court action for him, especially coming off an injury. However, if he can prove that he can regain his old form quickly, he and his new teammate can split the minutes in the Bucks’ backcourt, or even play alongside one another depending on matchups.
Brodgon has played in 46 games so far this season and has averaged solid numbers of 13.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 30.4 minutes. It will definitely be interesting to see what role he will play once he is healthy again, and how he will co-exist with Bledsoe should they be fielded in together. His potential return will be a huge boost for the Bucks if they make the playoffs as the 25-year-old Virginia product can give them additional depth and postseason experience, having played in all six playoff games for the team a year ago.
