On top of being down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series against the Bucks, the Celtics have something else to worry about — the likely return of Malcom Brogdon.
Brogdon has been upgraded to probable, and is expected to play in Game 5 Wednesday night.
The Virginia product has been out since mid-March with a partially torn plantar fascia in his right foot.
Known for his ability to shoot from the outside, this will help the Bucks spread the floor and open things up more for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Brogdon is also a threat to score on his own. Obviously, he will be on a minutes restriction and he won’t be 100 percent, but it will give the Celtics something to think about and plan for.
“He’s a tough cover because you have to get from helping on Giannis into his air space, and guard the drive,” Brad Stevens said recently. “That’s what makes him so effective. He’s a heck of a player on both ends.”
Tip is set for 8 p.m.
