Kemba Walker hit just 2-of-11 shots for four points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers. Walker is healthy (for now) and says he feels great but he clearly wasn't feeling it tonight. Maybe he'll bounce back against the Bucks on Friday night.

Jrue Holiday (left ankle sprain/illness) is listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Knicks. Holiday has been sidelined for each of the Bucks' previous five contests while battling both an ankle sprain and an illness but told reporters on Thursday that he planned to play Friday night. Geroge Hill will get bumped back to the bench with Holiday returning to the starting lineup.
