Brogdon out, Beasley In


Michael Beasley will make his semi-anticipated return from injury tonight versus the Detroit Pistons. He has missed the last 17 games with a hyperextended left knee. Beasley, a cult hero of sorts, will be a welcome sight for Bucks fans. He is having a career year shooting the ball, with a true shooting percentage of 59 percent, the highest of his career. Beasley also provides some veteran leadership that the Milwaukee Bucks lack outside of Jason Terry. The younger Bucks players all appreciate Beasley and the insight he has brought to the team this year. He appears to have put past indiscretions behind him.

While Michael Beasley returns, the Bucks will lose their star from Wednesday night, Malcolm Brogdon. Brogdon is sitting out due to back tightness. This will be the third game in three weeks that Brogdon has missed because of his back. He also missed games on March 10th and 11th. The Bucks won each of those games without him. Brogdon, a front-runner for Rookie of the Year, has been a major caveat to the Bucks success. Matthew Dellavedova is expected to start in Brogdon’s place. Hopefully, the back issues are not a sign of things to come for the shining youngster out of Virginia.

The Bucks look to continue their hot streak against the Pistons tonight. The Pistons Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is also expected to start tonight, despite being arrested for a DUI early Wednesday morning.
