Milwaukee is getting some much needed reinforcements in the paint as Brook Lopez is set to make his return. Adrain Wojnarowski reported this evening that Brook will be suiting up against the Jazz on Monday 3/14.
ESPN Sources: Three months after back surgery, Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez will return to lineup vs. the Utah Jazz on Monday (ESPN, 10 PM ET). Lopez, out since opening night, should make an impact for a defense outside of top 10 for first time under coach Mike Budenholzer.

I’m sure we can expected a tempered workload for the big man as this will be his first action all year. The timing however is great as Milwaukee will have almost a full month before the playoffs start. This should give Brook enough time to get back in basketball shape for a post season run. The 2021 NBA Champions are will be BACK at full strength. HUGE for the Milwaukee Bucks.
