INJURY TO WATCH
Bucks point guard Matthew Dellavadova (ankle) is out indefinitely, while shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon (quadriceps) is out until late March. For the Grizzlies, power forward Jarell Martin (foot) is questionable. Point guards Andrew Harrison (wrist) and Mario Chalmers (hamstring) are both out until Late March. Tyreke Evans (ribs) is out indefinitely.
Memphis has lost an astounding 17 games in a row, the last being a 114-80 shellacking at the Mavericks. The Grizzlies are injury-depleted, especially in the backcourt where they are using spare parts on a nightly basis. After resting last game, Marc Gasol will be back in the lineup tonight but who knows where his mindset is at right now. What Gasol does provide, in addition to being the focal point of the offense, is a defensive stalwart and someone who should play a role in slowing the pace of the game. Milwaukee has been held under 100 points in four of its last six contests, while Memphis has had huge scoring issues during the losing skid. Take the under here.
