Milwaukee Bucks To Add Another Key Piece To The Rotation

The Milwaukee Bucks have maintained the second-best record in the NBA despite missing two key pieces for almost the entire season. All-Star Khris Middleton finally made his season debut seven games ago, and now sharpshooter Joe Ingles is about to make his Bucks debut.

NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Ingles is targeting this Monday for his return. He suffered a torn ACL in late January while with the Utah Jazz, and has spent the last 10 months rehabbing. Woj says a 5-on-5 workout on Saturday will be the last step to prepare him for actual game action. 

The Bucks signed the eight-year veteran to a one-year, $6.5M deal this past summer, in the hopes that he can provide another legitimate floor spacer to their attack. His career 40.8% three-point shooting marksmanship is an indicator that he can. 

The 6'8" forward has averaged 8.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists in his career, spent entirely with the Jazz until they dealt him, already sidelined with the torn ACL, to the Portland Trail Blazers at the trade deadline.
