      Bucks' Chris Copeland: Doesn't see any minutes Wednesday

      Copeland was unable to see the court (coach's decision) in the Bucks' 103-102 loss to Denver on Wednesday. Copeland opened the season the first couple games as one of the Bucks' go-to guys and playing around 20 minutes per game. However, Milwaukee is slowly regained their health early on this year and Copeland's playing time has taken a hit. Through nine games, Copeland is averaging 4.0 points in 9.4 minutes per game. He doesn't offer much value outside of his ability to score, and he's going to be in a constant battle for minutes throughout 2015-16.

      Bucks' Chris Copeland: Will not start Friday

      Copeland will come off the bench Friday against the Wizards. Copeland started at power forward in the season opener Wednesday, but Johnny O'Bryant has earned the start Friday in Copeland's place. Giannis Antetokounmpo will return after serving his one game suspension, which will limit Copeland's role even further. As a backup, Copeland could provide value as one of the Bucks' go-to three-point shooters.

      Bucks' Chris Copeland: Starting in Wednesday's game

      Copeland will start at power forward Wednesday for Milwaukee against New York. Copeland will start in the season opener for the Bucks due to Giannis Antetokounmpo serving a one game suspension and Jabari Parker (knee) still working his way back from an ACL tear. Copeland will likely see a significant amount of minutes Wednesday before being returned to his role as a backup when Antetokounmpo returns Friday.

      Bucks' Chris Copeland: Could start opener with Antetokounmpo suspended

      Copeland could be used in the starting lineup when the Bucks open the regular season next Wednesday against the Knicks, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. With Giannis Antetokounmpo set to serve a one-game suspension to kick off the season and Jabari Parker (knee) presumably unavailable as he works his way back from a torn ACL, Copeland is the leading candidate to take the reins at the power forward spot, with his ability to knock down shots from deep giving the Bucks some decent floor spacing. Coach Jason Kidd plans to use Copeland as a starter in Friday's exhibition finale against the Timberwolves before locking him into a starting role for the opener, but all signs point to the free-agent pickup getting the nod at power forward. However, the starting appointment will likely be short-lived, as Antetokounmpo is expected to slot in at power forward after the suspension is completed, which will push Copeland back to a bench role.

      Bucks SF Chris Copeland returns to practice on Thursday

      Bucks forward Chris Copeland returned to practice Thursday, CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Copeland had been away from the Bucks for a week due to a family issue, but he was back at practice Thursday and will presumably be available for Saturday's preseason matchup with the Wizards. The veteran will compete for minutes off the bench and could see increased run if Jabari Parker (knee) misses any time to begin the season.

      Bucks forward Chris Copeland out for personal reasons

      Bucks forward Chris Copeland (personal) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Cavaliers, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Copeland will miss his third straight game while he remains away from the team to attend to a family situation. It's not clear if the personal matter will keep Copeland unavailable for the start of the season, but even if he returns before camp concludes, he may have a difficult time cracking coach Jason Kidd's rotation right away.

      NBA looking into arrest of Hawks' Thabo Sefolosha

      The NBA is working with the Hawks to gather information on the arrest of forward Thabo Sefolosha, a league spokesman confirmed on Saturday, per ESPN. The league wouldn't say that it was an official investigation of Sefolosha. "We are working with the Hawks organization and local law enforcement to obtain more information about the circumstances surrounding Thabo's arrest," the NBA's Michael Bass said. Sefolosha was arrested following the Wednesday morning stabbing of Chris Copeland and charged with resisting arrest and interfering with the establishment of a crime scene. He suffered a fractured right fibula and ligament damage in the arrest, and video tape showed him being wrestled to the ground by several officers and struck with a baton.
