Malcolm Brogdon reentered the starting lineup on Thursday night and put in a solid performance, scoring 18 points and pulling down 11 rebounds.
It was a better sight to see than the disastrous four points in Game 4, but it wasn't enough as his absence from the bench really sucked the offense out of the bench group as the second unit scored a whopping 15 points. A repeat performance from Brogdon and more from Khris Middleton is a potentially winning formula for Game 6.

Malcolm Brogdon shot just 2-for-11 from the field for four points in Tuesday's Game 4 road loss to the Raptors, adding just five rebounds and three assists in his 28 minutes.
Brogdon missed his only free throw attempt and all three of his shots from distance. It wouldn't have been so deflating if George Hill (five points on 1-for-2 shooting in 27 minutes) and Eric Bledsoe (five points on 2-for-7 shooting in 20 minutes) had produced, but the whole backcourt had a tough time getting going tonight.

Mike Budenholzer is inclined to stick with the current starting lineup for Game 4.
Bud mentioned he likes Malcolm Brogdon and George Hill off the bench, and he has every reason to do so. Even if there were going to be lineup changes, we wouldn't hear about it until right before tip-off, but don't expect any.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting in 37 minutes of action in a double overtime loss to the Raptors in Game 3 on Sunday.
The series is now 2-1 in favor of the Bucks, but Game 4 is a huge turning point as the game is Toronto and the Raptors have a chance to tie up the series. Brogdon and George Hill were on the court over Eric Bledsoe and Nikola Mirotic to end the game as they have played consistently well all series long. The dynamic duo off the bench had 44 points in this one and were the two highest scorers on the Bucks.

The dynamic duo off the bench for the Bucks of Malcolm Brogdon and George Hill combined for 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting in a Game 2 win over the Raptors on Friday.
Brogdon scored 14 points and Hill scored 13 points, and it is becoming more and more clear every game that these two are the most important bench players in the rotation. Although Ersan Ilyasova did steal their shine for this game with 17 points, the bench as a whole scored 54 of the Bucks' 125 points. If the bench continues to play this well, it is hard to imagine the Bucks losing this series.

Mike Budenholzer said that he was pleased with what he saw from Malcolm Brogdon in Game 1 and doesn't expect to insert him into the starting lineup.
In just his second game since returning from a foot injury, Brogdon showed well in 27 minutes off the bench in Game 1 on Wednesday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting. The Bucks started slow, but they came alive as the game wore on and Brogdon was a big part of it by outscoring the Raptors bench alone. Brogdon has taken a liking to the increase in opportunities while leading the Bucks second-unit, and he has the look of a real weapon off the bench.

Malcolm Brogdon played well in Game 1 on Wednesday as he had 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a win over the Raptors.
Brogdon led the team in plus/minus in Game 1 with a plus-18 in 27 minutes of action. He led the bench scoring and George Hill led the bench defense as he delivered four steals and one block to the box score. If the Bucks continue to start Nikola Mirotic, Brogdon and Hill will be a formidable bench duo that could push them to the NBA Finals.

Malcolm Brogdon will be without any sort of restrictions for Wednesday's Game 1 matchup with the Raptors.
Having Brogdon back for this series will be huge for the Bucks on both sides of the ball. He played really well in his return from injury during Milwaukee's Game 5 win over Boston, and should look at plenty of opportunity in tonight's game.

Mike Budenholzer said Malcolm Brogdon will continue to come off the bench in Game 1 vs. the Raptors on Wednesday, but he is set to see a "bump in minutes," as the coaching staff finds ways to incorporate him back into the gameplan after an extended absence.
Brogdon returned for the Bucks close-out game against the Celtics in the second round, and it seems like he responded well enough that he shouldn't have any restrictions moving forward. Brogdon should act as the focal point of the offense off the Bucks bench and makes for a value play in DFS leagues.

Malcolm Brogdon may not return to the starting lineup for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Brogdon played limited minutes in his first game back from a right plantar fascia injury, and while the Bucks will have a week off given their quick series against the Celtics they want to see Brogdon get more game action under his belt before changing their linueps. Nikola Mirotic will continue to start for the time being while Brogdon's increasing activity spells trouble for Pat Connaughton and Sterling Brown.

Malcolm Brogdon played well in his return from his right plantar fascia injury, finishing with 10 points, three rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer in 17 minutes of action.
Brogdon didn't show many signs of rust in his return, and should be a key player in the final stretch of Milwaukee's playoff run. It will take some time for him to ramp up to his usual workload, especially with George Hill playing the way he has over the last few games. That being said, this was a very encouraging performance from a guy who hasn't played in nearly two months.

Malcolm Brogdon (right plantar fascia) will play and is expected to come off the bench in Wednesday’s Game 5 against the Celtics.
Brogdon hasn’t played since March 15th so this is great news for a Bucks team that is starting to look towards their first ECF appearance since 2001. Brogdon will be on a minutes limit tonight and will most likely need a few games under his belt before we see him return to 100 percent. The Bucks are hoping that Brogdon can return to form at some point in these playoffs. His scoring ability will elevate the already dominant Bucks roster. As Brogdon returns to form, expect less playing time for both Pat Connaughton and George Hill.

Malcolm Brogdon (partial right plantar fascia tear) has been upgraded to probable and is expected to play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics.
Brogdon will come off the bench and play limited minutes, but his return should give Milwaukee a big emotional lift even before he returns to his usual on-court self. Getting him some run before the Eastern Conference Finals (barring an unlikely collapse) is a great development for the Bucks. Brogdon last played on March 15.

Malcolm Brogdon (partial right plantar fascia tear) is questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics.
Brogdon is going to be re-evaluated on a game-by-game basis but there's still no news as to how close he is to returning. If he were to return it would be a big boost to an already elite Bucks team.

Malcolm Brogdon (partial right plantar fascia tear) has been ruled out of Monday's Game 4.
Brogdon continues to increase his practice activity but the Bucks still don't have a firm return date in mind. We'll get another update ahead of Game 5. George Hill and Pat Connaughton will continue to soak up the extra backcourt minutes in the meantime.
