Found April 10, 2013 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
Now that a playoff spot has been locked up, the Milwaukee Bucks have a list of things they want to accomplish before the regular season ends. Staying healthy is near the top of the list. The Bucks lost a pair of starters to injury in Wednesday night's game against Orlando, as point guard Brandon Jennings left the game with a sore left Achilles' tendon and center Larry Sanders left with a sore lower back. Jennings left the game with 5:47 left in the first quarter to be evaluated in the locker room. The team announced he wouldn't return during halftime. Sanders suffered a scary fall after being fouled by Magic center Andrew Nicholson with 2:00 left in the first quarter. Hit while in the air, Sanders came down hard on his lower back and tailbone, something he's had happen to him twice earlier in the season. He missed four games in February after injuring his lower back during a hard fall against Denver on Feb. 5. The Bucks were already playing without starting powe...

Bucks Henson learning to put in the work

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Jim Boylan could sense some frustration from his rookie forward. John Henson wasn't playing much, something he's not accustomed to.

"It's always interesting when...

Brandon Jennings suffers from overconfidence with potential Heat matchup

Brandon Jennings is a confident player. You have to be to be the gunner that many perceive him to be and average 15 field goal attempts per game while shooting a hair better than 40 percent.

Boston has a three game lead over Milwaukee for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, and with just five games remaining for both teams, the Bucks will likely remain the eighth seed and take on Miami in the first round.

Ilyasova adds to Bucks' ailments at forward

Milwaukee Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova will miss Wednesday's game against Orlando with an illness. Ilyasova's absence is a big blow to a Bucks team chasing the Boston Celtics for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, as Ilyasova is averaging 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in his last 16 games. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute will start at power forward in place...

The Atlanta Hawks are back in the win column. The Milwaukee Bucks would like to follow suit, but injuries to Brandon Jennings and Larry Sanders could make that a challenge Friday night.

Bucks look to break Magic's curse in Orlando

J.J. Redick has not been much of a factor for the Milwaukee Bucks of late. Perhaps a return to Orlando will get him back on track and help his current team end its road struggles overall and against his former squad. Back in Orlando for the first time since being traded to Milwaukee in February, Redick looks to help the Bucks avoid a seventh consecutive road defeat and end a 13-game...

J.J. Redick’s Return To Orlando Was The Complete Opposite of Dwight Howard’s

I live approximately 3,000 miles away from Orlando, so I don’t know much about the connection former Magic (and current Milwaukee Bucks) shooting guard J.J. Redick had with the city where he spent the first six and a half years of his career. But clearly it was something special, as Redick returned to Orlando for the first time since being traded in February, and was showered with...

Tobias Harris forces overtime with clutch three

Do you think the Milwaukee Bucks regret trading Tobias Harris for J.J. Redick at the NBA’s trade deadline? If they didn’t before, then they certainly do now. Harris broke Milwaukee’s back last night in Orlando as the Magic squared off against the Bucks. Harris gets the inbound, makes a move around former teammate, Marquis Daniels, gets held and still converts with a game-tying...

Get your Henson John!

With Ersan Iylasova sitting due to illness and Larry Sanders going down for the count, the Bucks were left to turn to John Henson. You remember him? He was the guy I had high hopes for back in, oh, I don’t know, maybe December, early January. You grabbed him then you lost him because he blew chunks. See Ersan Ilyasova, he knows something about blowing chunks literally and figuratively...
