Brogdon had only two points on 1-of-8 shooting, to go with four assists and three rebounds in 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-96 loss to Boston. Brogdon saved one of his worst games for the final encounter, delivering basically nothing in 30 minutes of playing time. After a strong start to the season, Brogdon was derailed by a quad injury which cost him a large chunk of the season. Since making his return prior to the playoffs, he has shown glimpses of his abilities but never really looked fully engaged. Hopefully, the off-season will allow him to regain full fitness and be ready to roll come October.
Brogdon generated five points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 29 minutes during Milwaukee's 116-92 win over the Celtics in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. Brogdon wasn't able to parlay his starting opportunity into any meaningful production, as he posted his worst shooting percentage and lowest scoring total of the first three games of the series. The 25-year-old naturally was much better than he showed Friday over the course of his injury-shortened season, and he still offers considerably higher upside than fellow two-guard Tony Snell. Therefore, it's likely Brogdon gets an opportunity for redemption when the two teams meet again for a pivotal Game 4 on Sunday.
Brogdon will get the start at shooting guard for Friday's Game 3 versus the Celtics, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. With the Bucks down 0-2 in their first-round series against Boston, they will look to shake things up by replacing Tony Snell with Brogdon in the first-unit. The second-year guard has seen his role increase relatively quickly following his return from a lengthy absence, and figures to be in line for a healthy workload Friday.
Brogdan scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Celtics in Game 1. The second-year guard was supposed to be on a minutes restriction after returning from a two-month absence due to a quad injury at the end of the regular season, but coach Joe Prunty needed all hands on deck in overtime. Assuming Brogdan is none the worse for wear, expect him to handle a normal workload Tuesday in Game 2.
Brogdon will have a minutes restriction for the Bucks' first game of the postseason Sunday against the Celtics, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Brogdon has played two games since returning from a quad injury, playing 18 minutes in the most recent contest and 14 minutes in the prior contest. He'll presumably hover around 20-25 minutes for Game 1, though a range has not been officially stated by coach Joe Prunty. More information could arrive following Saturday's practice.
