Nwora (thigh) is listed as out for Game 5 against the Nets on Tuesday.

Nwora (thigh) is out for Thursday's Game 3 against the Nets.
Nwora continues to battle a thigh injury. He's not part of the Bucks' regular rotation, so his absence won't affect things Thursday.
Nwora (thigh) is listed as out for Game 2 against Brooklyn on Monday.
Nwora isn't a factor in the rotation at this point, but he's currently dealing with a left thigh contusion. One he's able to heal up, he likely won't be looking at any minutes during these playoffs.
Nwora delivered 34 points (14-23 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, two blocks and a steal across 36 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Bulls.
Nwora logged the second-highest minutes for the Bucks in this one and it's clear to see why when looking at the stat line -- he paced Milwaukee in points, rebounds and blocks despite coming off the bench. The rookie averaged 20.2 points per game in the five contests he saw at least 15 minutes, but he's likely to hold a minimal -- if any -- role come playoff time.
Nwora (coach's decision) didn't play in Tuesday's win over Charlotte.
Nwora didn't crack the rotation for a second consecutive matchup, as the rookie last appeared against the 76ers on Saturday and posted 13 points and three rebounds. Currently across 25 games played, the rookie is averaging 5.5 points and 1.8 rebounds while shooting 46.2 percent from three.
Nwora registered 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal across 20 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over the Magic.
Nwora was coming off a 24-point performance as a starter the last time out, and while he was unable to replicate those numbers, he still delivered a strong performance off the bench since he saw an uptick in his playing time -- this was the first time he logged more than 15 minutes off the bench all season long. Nwora doesn't have a clear role, and that conspires against his upside, but the talent and scoring ability are clearly there. He could be worth a roster spot in deep dynasty formats as a stash alternative, but his current value isn't very high unless he finds regular minutes off the bench.
Nwora mustered 24 points (9-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal across 32 minutes in Friday's loss against the Hornets.
Nwora made his second career start Friday, as the Bucks changed their entire starting lineup due to a rash of injuries. The rookie second-round pick took advantage of the chance to carry Milwaukee offensively. He has scored 20-plus points in his two starts this season, but he's not expected to earn a big role off the bench any time soon once the starters return. He's a situational-streaming alternative at best, but he's not worth rostering on most formats regularly.
Nwora is starting Friday's game against Charlotte, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
Nwora will make his second career start Friday since the Bucks are dealing with several key injuries. Nwora has averaged just 1.2 points in 4.8 minutes per game in his last five appearances, but he should see an uptick in usage against the Hornets.
Nwora registered 21 points (7-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 36 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Knicks.
As expected, Nwora reached several career-high marks since he logged a season-best 36 minutes -- though that was mostly because the Bucks only had eight players available. Nwora might be useful as a waiver pick-up for a game or two, but he's expected to move back to his usual bench role once the rest of the Bucks roster starts to get healthier. Either way, this was a strong outing from the Louisville product, who showed what he can do with extended minutes at the NBA level.
Nwora will start Saturday's game against the Knicks, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
The rookie second round pick will make the first start of his professional career with Brook Lopez the only regular starter available for the Bucks. Nwora could receive more playing time than he's seen all season since Milwaukee has only eight players available.
Nwora (ankle) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Wizards.
Nwora had been conducting rehab from a sprained left ankle over the past month that forced him to miss most of the G League season, but he'll be able to suit up for the Bucks against Washington on Saturday. The 22-year-old averaged just 5.1 points and 1.5 rebounds over 8.2 minutes per game across 10 appearances with the Bucks earlier in the season.
Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Friday that Nwora was recalled from the G League's Salt Lake City Stars so that he could conduct rehab for a sprained left ankle under the supervision of team doctors in Milwaukee, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
Nwora was expected to remain at the G League bubble in Orlando for about a month, but he suffered what Budenholzer labeled as a "significant twisted ankle" in the Stars' season-opening loss to the Erie BayHawks. Based on Budenholzer's comments, Nwora seems unlikely to recover from the injury in time to rejoin the Stars before the G League season ends in early March. The rookie second-round pick will thus miss out on a rare opportunity to pick up minutes, as he hadn't been a part of the Bucks' rotation prior to reporting to the G League bubble. Consider him out indefinitely with the ankle sprain until the Bucks provide another update on his condition.
Nwora was recalled from the G League by the Bucks on Friday, Zora Stephenson of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
The 22-year-old was assigned to the G League bubble but will now rejoin the Bucks. Nwora provides frontcourt depth and is unlikely to see any significant playing time while up with the parent club.
