It’s official, the Milwaukee Bucks are healthy (well, mostly). All of the players that began the season on the injury report, Pat Connaughton, Khris Middleton and Joe Ingles have all returned to action, the latest of the three making his team debut Monday night against the New Orleans Pelicans. While Khris Middleton is dealing with some lingering knee soreness that has held him out of the last two games and likely Wednesday’s game against the Cavaliers, the Bucks are the healthiest they’ve been this season. What does that mean for the Bucks?

Firstly, it means that Mike Budenholzer’s job gets easier, adding a former 6th Man of the Year candidate is always beneficial. Secondly, it also means Mike Budenholzer’s job gets harder, finding minutes for all the talented players and savvy veterans the Bucks have while also trying to get young guys experience. Lastly, it means the Milwaukee Bucks are the deepest team in the entire league.

Let’s look at where the Bucks depth chart stands now that everyone is healthy.

Milwaukee Bucks depth chart: Point Guard

Jrue Holiday is locked in at starting point guard for the Milwaukee Bucks and should get at least a little bit of All-Star consideration. Holiday has played fantastic defense, even going so far as to guard Zion Williamson in the Bucks’ win in New Orleans on Monday. Jrue is also playing some pretty good offense as well, averaging 19.2 points on 45.9 percent field goal shooting and 36.4 percent behind the 3-point line and a career high 90.2 percent at the free throw line. That 90.2 percent mark is Jrue Holiday’s highest since the 2015-16 season when he made 84.3 percent.

In addition to his scoring, Jrue is also averaging 7.6 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.

Backing up Jrue Holiday is the ever pesky Jevon Carter, who is having a career year himself, averaging a career high in minutes, points, assists, rebounds, blocks, steals, field goal percentage and 3-point percentage.

The Milwaukee Bucks also have a pretty consistent insurance policy in George Hill, who despite some of the fanbase still being sour on has been pretty solid for the Bucks this year.
