The Milwaukee Bucks’ 128-112 win over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night did not come without a cost. The Bucks lost MarJon Beauchamp in the second quarter due to an ankle sprain and was unable to return.
At this point, the 23-year-old is now in danger of missing his first game of the season when Milwaukee takes on the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.
MarJon Beauchamp Could Sit Out Milwaukee Bucks’ Showdown Vs. Hornets
The Bucks have officially listed Beauchamp as questionable to play in Charlotte due to a sprained right ankle. At the moment, we do not have too many details regarding the extent of this injury, but the fact that he has already been tagged as questionable 24 hours before the game isn’t very encouraging.
The Bucks play again on Friday against the Dallas Mavericks so the back-to-back set could be a factor in Milwaukee’s decision to let Beauchamp take the court on Thursday or not.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Also Questionable Vs. Hornets
Potentially joining Beauchamp on the sidelines against the Hornets is Giannis Antetokounmpo. After missing Wednesday’s victory against the Raptors due to a calf problem, Giannis is questionable to play again on Friday.
If both Giannis and Beauchamp are out, we expect a heavier workload for rookie Andre Jackson Jr., who got his first start of his career on Wednesday sans Antetokounmpo.
