Injury Report: Bucks forward Jabari Parker has recovered from a torn ACL and will sit out this game before returning Friday night versus the Knicks. Eric Bledsoe left the last game with an ankle injury and is doubtful to play tonight. Jason Terry will miss the game as he tends to a personal matter. Mirza Teletovic is out until late March as he recovers from knee surgery and pulmonary emboli on both lungs.
Who the Trends Like: Milwaukee is 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Minnesota and 10-3-1 in the last 14 meetings overall.
Who We Like: Parker will provide the Bucks an emotional lift tomorrow at least for a 15-minute playing time restriction. But tonight, it will have to be Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton leading the charge. Milwaukee has won all four of its games since firing Jason Kidd, but tonight will be by far the toughest opponent in that timespan. The Bucks are catching Minnesota at the right time as the hosts have lost four of its last five contests. Expect a big night out of the now-healthy Antetokounmpo, while Middleton and others will complement him well.
