One night after scoring 18 points in a win over the Magic, Brandon Knight missed Wednesday’s practice. Knight sat out while recovering from a cut on his heel suffered while getting out of the shower Tuesday evening.
Caron Butler, who scored a team-high 21 points in Tuesday’s win, also sat out. Prior to the All-Star break, Butler missed four games after suffering a sprained ankle on Feb. 3 against the Knicks. Both players are expected to play Thursday against Denver, as is O.J. Mayo, according to the Journal Sentinel.
The Bucks remain quiet as Thursday’s trade deadline creeps closer, but it seems likely the team will make at least a move or two. Luke Ridnour, Gary Neal and Mayo seem to be the primary names in the rumor mill, but nearly any player on the roster (with the probable exceptions of Giannis Antetokounmpo and John Henson) could be available for the right price. Stay tuned for updates leading up to the 2:00p.m. (CDT) deadline.
