Bucks vs. Warriors injuries

Khris Middleton remains out for the Bucks after missing the last 11 games due to a left ankle sprain. Giannis Antetokounmpo missed the team’s last game with an Achilles injury and is questionable for tonight’s game. This would leave Milwaukee without its leading scorer and put the weight on Damian Lillard. Jae Crowder is questionable but is expected to play.

Golden State will have a healthy roster tonight, as the team welcomed back Andrew Wiggins and Chris Paul, both of whom missed time recently.
