Bucks G Brogdon expected to play in Game 5

Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon was cleared for his postseason debut Wednesday night in Game 5 against the visiting Boston Celtics.

Brogdon has been sidelined since March 15 with a plantar fascia tear in his right foot. The team updated his official status from out to probable after he participated in Wednesday morning’s shootaround.

The Bucks have a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said Nikola Mirotic will remain in the starting lineup, with Brogdon coming off the bench and playing on a minutes restriction.

Brogdon, 26, averaged 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 64 games (all starts) this season.

He led the league in free throw shooting at 92.8 percent, becoming the eighth player in NBA history to shoot at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point distance and 90 percent from the line.

Brogdon was the 2016-17 NBA Rookie of the Year after being drafted in the second round (36th overall) out of Virginia.
