Brook Lopez News
Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez (back) has been ruled out for the team's game against the Indiana Pacers on Monday. The 32-year-old veteran is dealing with a sore back and this will be his third straight game on the sidelines. The fact that he's been ruled out a day before the game is an indication that he'll likely have some more missed games ahead. Bobby Portis (hamstring) isn't listed on the injury report, despite dealing with a hamstring injury, so he may draw the start at center for the game. Giannis Antetokounmpo will likely operate as the team's center at various points throughout the game as well.
Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez (back) had already been ruled out for Saturday's contest, but head coach Mike Budenholzer let it be known before tip-off that the veteran big man would miss Monday's game against Indiana as well. The team is clearly taking a conservative approach to the center's back soreness, which has allowed Giannis Antetokounmpo to serve as the team's de facto starting five. With Bobby Portis (hamstring) also out of the mix, Jordan Nwora and Sandro Mamukelashvili have reaped added minutes, although their totals from Saturday will likely be telling about where they stand heading into Monday's outing. Lopez's next chance to suit up comes Wednesday when the Bucks return home vs. the Timberwolves.
Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez (back) will miss his second consecutive game Saturday vs. the Spurs as he continues to battle back soreness. Milwaukee opted to start Giannis Antetokounmpo as its de facto center Thursday, which could very well be the case again with no true backup center available. Sandro Mamukelashvili and Jordan Nwora stand to benefit from the increased frontcourt run and rebounding opportunities, although both will likely remain DFS-only assets. Lopez's next chance to return to action comes Monday against Indiana.
Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez (back) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Miami Heat. This news comes from the official injury report, so there's not much information available. It'd be surprising to see the Bucks rest the veteran big man this early in the season. Lopez does have a long history of injuries, but resting him in the second game of the season isn't a good sign. Bobby Portis (hamstring) will also be sitting out during Thursday's contest. That means, Giannis Antetokounmpo should see a majority of his time at center in this game.
