Jerryd Bayless is dealing with a minor, left knee injury but will play Tuesday against the Celtics, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England reports.
Bayless was not thought to be dealing with an injury, but he popped up on the report Tuesday with a "left knee" designation. Little is known about the ailment, but the fact that he's playing would seem to indicate that it's only minor, routine soreness. Expect Bayless to hold down his usual role as the first guard off the bench.
Jerryd Bayless managed 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-6 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and a steal over 25 minutes in Friday's 84-81 loss to the Jazz.
As he often does, Bayless provided a nice scoring boost off the bench for a Milwaukee Bucks squad that struggled to generate offense against the Jazz's stalwart defense. It was the 27-year-old's second consecutive double-digit scoring game, a nice bounce-back from scoreless and six-point outings in the two contests prior. While the occasional outbursts off the bench are certainly a welcome sight, Bayless doesn't quite provide enough game-to-game consistency to be relied on outside of deep leagues and as an occasional punt play in daily formats.
Jerryd Bayless contributed 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, one rebound, and one block in 30 minutes during the Milwaukee Bucks ' 107-95 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
Bayless had his best game in over a month on Tuesday, scoring 16 points on nine field goal attempts while playing 30 minutes for just the fourth time in his last 14 appearances. Typically, third-year guard Michael Carter-Williams spends the bulk of time at point guard, but every so often MCW has an off night and Bayless is able to capitalize. Nevertheless, this doesn't make Bayless all that enticing in most formats.
Jerryd Bayless contributed 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal across 30 minutes in Tuesday's 91-79 win over the Milwaukee Bucks .
Bayless, who was playing in his second game since returning from an ankle injury, ended up seeing more court time than starting point guard Michael Carter-Williams (25 minutes). While that won't always be guaranteed, it could become a fairly common arrangement between the two, just as it was earlier in the season. Carter-Williams is the superior playmaker, but Bayless does a better job of stretching the floor due to his three-point shooting, and that's a skill that's sorely needed on this Bucks roster.
Jerryd Bayless (ankle) played 22 minutes in his return to action Saturday against the Hornets, finishing with three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six assists, two rebounds, and a blocked shot.
Bayless, who had missed the previous six games with a sprained left ankle, was quickly able to reclaim a prominent spot in the Milwaukee Bucks ' rotation and cut into the workload of starting point guard Michael Carter-Williams. While it's likely that Carter-Williams will continue to start at the position and frequently see more playing time of the two players, Bayless could still settle into a regular 25-to-30 minute role off the bench due to the Bucks' lack of appealing backcourt reserves.
