4:40 PM : Damian Lillard (calf)and Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) are a game-time decision Thursday vs Pacers, per coach Griffin.
11:40AM: The Bucks’ injury update reveals that Damian Lillard, dealing with a calf injury, is marked as questionable for Thursday’s clash with the Indiana Pacers, as per the Underdog NBA . On the other hand, Giannis is deemed probable and is expected to take the court tonight.
While Lillard has maintained a perfect attendance record this season, the possibility of him sitting out looms for the second half of Milwaukee’s back-to-back on Thursday.
In the event the star point guard is sidelined, it’s anticipated that Cameron Payne will see an uptick in his on-court involvement.
In the recent game against the Detroit Pistons, Lillard demonstrated his versatility by amassing 34 points (10-25 FG, 2-12 3Pt, 12-13 FT), along with two rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 34 minutes.
This noteworthy performance included a season-high steal count, marking his second-highest scoring output of the year and his third game with 30 or more points in seven appearances.
