Plumlee was a DNP-CD in Milwaukee's 103-102 loss Monday to Denver. Plumlee has been limited to 7.4 minutes per game through Milwaukee's first nine matchups, and Wednesday's game against Denver was the first game he didn't play at all. He's currently the backup center behind Greg Monroe, and is averaging 2.3 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. Looking forward, Plumlee will likely continue to be a role player and his minutes are unlikely to change very drastically.
Plumlee scored two points and added two rebounds in six minutes of action in Monday's 103-96 win in Brooklyn. Plumlee opened the season in a fairly head-to-head race with Johnny O'Bryant for backup center minutes, but early on it seems O'Bryant has been more a reliable option and the guy head coach Jason Kidd has turned to the most. Plumlee is averaging only 9.5 minutes per game this season, and with the returns of Jabari Parker and John Henson just around the corner it's going to be even tougher for Plumlee to see the court.
Plumlee (knee) was back on the hardwood for Friday's preseason finale against the Timberwoles. He played 12 minutes, scoring four points (4-4 FT) while snatching three rebounds and blocking a shot. Plumlee was listed as questionable heading into the contest, but his participation in Thursday's practice was enough for the Bucks to green light his return. The 27-year-old finds himself behind Greg Monroe and John Henson in the pecking order for minutes at center, and will thus see light usage once the regular season begins.
Plumlee managed to take part in portions of Thursday's practice but still remains questionable for the preseason game against Minnesota on Friday, CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Plumlee has been limited throughout the preseason with right knee soreness but he's turning a corner just in time for the regular season opener against the Knicks on Wednesday. Although, even when fully healthy, he'll have a hard time seeing more minutes than Greg Monroe or John Henson.
Bucks center Miles Plumlee (knee) remained sidelined Friday and will not play in Saturday's matchup with the Wizards, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Plumlee will miss his second consecutive game now, as he's been dealing with knee soreness for the past week. We'll have to wait and see if he practices Sunday or Monday before determining his availability for Tuesday's preseason game, but consider him questionable for that matchup at this point in time. With two weeks left until the regular season, Plumlee still has plenty of time to get healthy.
