The Milwaukee Bucks have the same exact problem another popular Wisconsin sports team is dealing with recently. There are simply too many injuries, which is a result of their inability to perform at the highest level possible. The Bucks definitely have a talented roster that bolsters plenty of depth, but no one will see it until everyone can play together.

The good news is center/forward Ekpe Udoh has decided to push his timetable up in order to help Milwaukee. It is still unknown if he will be able to suit up for Wednesday night’s contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, at least he has decided to join practice full time in an attempt to get ready to come back sooner than expected.

“I didn’t think I was going to (practice) but we have people down,” Udoh said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “We have injuries. I just practiced and did the whole thing.

“I’m tired right now. I’m tired and I’m hurting. I’m going to have to go get some treatment. I’ll probably come back later and shoot, get back into that rhythm I had the first week of training camp.”

Even though Udoh is expected to take a more minimal role this season with the addition and emergence of several big men, there is no question the Bucks could use his help right now with all of the injuries that are mounting up. His presence on the court could do wonders for the team, especially against the gifted Cavaliers.
