Andrew Bogut is doubtful and probably won’t play against the Pistons tonight.
Carlos Delfino has a toe injury and won’t play against the Pistons tonight. Corey Maggette is still recovering from his ankle surgery and won’t play against the Pistons tonight John Salmons is recovering from his knee sprain and won’t play against the Pistons tonight.
Television isn’t interested in pre-season Bucks basketball and won’t participate in the Bucks-Pistons game tonight. Radio feels like listeners won’t be listening, so it won’t participate in the Bucks-Pistons game tonight.
So who else is ready for the regular season to get started?
Supposedly, a squad resembling the Bucks will take on a squad that represents the Detroit Pistons at some point this evening in Detroit, but that’s just what I hear. There should be a box score that eventually emerges out of this and I’m sure we’ll get all the juicy details on a game that isn’t shaping up to be very fascinating from the Journal-Sentinel, bless their hearts. But if you thought that I was really going all out in urging you not to take too much out of the Bucks first pre-season game, you haven’t seen anything yet. A whole bunch of backups playing in a game not many will watch.
Hopefully Brandon Jennings looks a little better, hopefully Chris Douglas-Roberts doesn’t foul out, hopefully Luc Richard Mbah a Moute keeps hitting open shots and hopefully no one else gets injured. That’s an ideal game two for me.
