The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as we learn about Pau Gasol’s injury, and get a glimpse at the inner workings of the Bucks’ front office, helmed by general manager Jon Horst.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we learn about Pau Gasol‘s injury problems, how both Matt Bollero and Milt Newton came to the Bucks’ front office two summers ago, various accommodations continue to be made at Fiserv Forum and much more.

On the front office front, since assuming general manager duties 20 months ago, Horst has always preached collaboration and togetherness. That process, as well as the figures he helped put in place after his appointment, have certainly played a part in what we’re seeing on the court with the Bucks this season.
