Bucks guard Jrue Holiday left Tuesday night’s 127-104 palm over the Brooklyn Nets before the end of the alternate quarter due to a right heel bruise and was ruled out for the game.
Holiday passed an MRI during the game, and the results came back clean, trainer Mike Budenholzer said. “Everything is complete, so we are hopeful,” Budenholzer said.”We will see how he feels in the morning, but I suppose so far what we have entered– information and MRI-wise– everything has been good, positive.”The Bucks have a day off Wednesday before they head to Miami for a tourney against the Heat on Thursday night.
The Bucks had a short offseason following their crown run last summer, but Holiday’s break was indeed more abbreviated after winning a gold order with Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics incontinently following the NBA Tests. Still, Holiday came out of the gate shooting 5-of-7 from the field for 12 points in the first half of Tuesday’s nature. He played 18 twinkles in the first half, the utmost of any Bucks player, before the injury passed during a drive to the handbasket in the alternate quarter. Holiday remained in the game for many further effects, but the Bucks decided to exercise caution once they learned of his discomfort. “The way he described it, I suppose it was the applicable thing to do,” Budenholzer said.
