The Milwaukee Bucks will lock horns with the Detroit Pistons for the second time in the 2020-21 NBA, where the latter will look to avenge a 125-115 loss suffered earlier in the season. The Bucks climbed over the .500 mark with that win and will be looking to continue their winning run in the league.
The Milwaukee Bucks might have their work cut out, as there is a possibility that the Detroit Pistons may not have rookie Killian Hayes available for this game. The Pistons, who have had a rough start to their NBA campaign, will look to grab only the second win of their season.
Detroit Pistons: Team news
The Detroit Pistons have had an injury-plagued campaign so far; rookie Killian Hayes is the latest casualty and will be out for an unknown time due to a labral tear in his right hip. Young forward Josh Jackson might miss out as well, which means Saddiq Bey could get a starting spot once again.
Moreover, there are doubts over star power forward Blake Griffin's availability, so it will be interesting to see how head coach Dwayne Casey rejigs his roster.
Injured: Killian Hayes.
Doubtful: Josh Jackson, Blake Griffin.
