The Milwaukee Bucks need Damian Lillard back as soon as humanly possible. The seven-time All-Star missed both of his team’s last two games due to injury, and it’s probably no coincidence that the Bucks have lost both contests.
Milwaukee is in action again on Monday night with a clash against Central Division rivals, the Chicago Bulls, on the slate. This is exactly why Bucks fans want to know: Is Damian Lillard playing tonight vs. Chicago Bulls?
Milwaukee Bucks’ Damian Lillard Still Dealing With Calf Injury
Dame has been hindered by a calf injury over the past couple of games. At this point, it is clear that the 33-year-old hasn’t fully recovered from the knock. This is after the Bucks have listed him as probable to play on the injury report ahead of Monday’s contest against the Bulls.
The fact that Lillard has been upgraded to probable is a positive development for Milwaukee. His status only means that there’s a very good chance that he is able to suit up against the Bulls.
On the other hand, the Bucks have listed veteran swingman Jae Crowder as out with a left groin strain. Crowder exited Friday’s loss against the Orlando Magic and was unable to return, and the knock will now force him to miss at least one more game.
Now, as for the question of, is Damian Lillard playing tonight vs. Chicago Bulls, the answer is that it’s likely. We will pass along any new information as they come.
UPDATE: head coach Adrian Griffin has confirmed that Dame will be available against Chicago:
