Forbes declined his player option for the 2021-22 season and will become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Forbes shot 45.2 percent from three last season, which ranked third best in the NBA among players with 200-plus attempts. The 28-year-old sharpshooter will receive plenty of attention from contenders, but a return to the Bucks is not out of the question either. On the season, the fifth-year guard averaged 10.0 points across 19.3 minutes per game.
Forbes tallied 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes during Thursday's 113-84 win over Miami. Forbes started the second half after Donte DiVincenzo (foot) went down and he ended up posting double figures in scoring for the second game in a row. The 27-year-old shooting guard could potentially start in Game 4 if DiVincenzo is sidelined for that contest. Forbes has gone 12-of-19 from downtown through the first three games of the series.
Forbes had a career-playoff-high 22 points (8-12 FG, 6-9 3Pt) and five rebounds in Monday's Game 2 win over Miami. Forbes was the story of the night, hitting five three-pointers in the first quarter alone as Milwaukee jumped out to a 46-20 advantage after 12 minutes. Paced by Forbes, Giannis Antetokounmpo (31 points) and Pat Connaughton (5-9 3Pt), Milwaukee sustained, or built upon, the lead for the final three quarters and finished 22-of-53 from three-point range after going just 5-of-31 in Game 1.
Forbes is unavailable for Sunday's game against the Bulls for rest purposes. Forbes was a late scratch Sunday, and the team later revealed that he'll be unavailable off the bench. He should be available for the start of the playoffs.
Forbes was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against Chicago. Forbes and the rest of Milwaukee's starters were removed from the lineup just before the start of Sunday's contest. It's not yet clear whether Forbes will be available off the bench, but Sam Merrill will take his place in the starting five.
