Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings could return by Wednesday, when the Milwaukee Bucks host the Atlanta Hawks at the Bradley Center. Jennings, the Bucks' star shooter, has been benched since December when he broke his foot. He was supposed to appear in the recent NBA Slam Dunk contest, but had to pull out due to his injury. When Jennings returns to the Milwaukee Bucks starting lineup, his replacement Keyon Dooling will return to the bench. If Jennings doesn't make it to Wednesday's game, expect to see him Friday in Toronto against the Toronto Raptors.

I felt bad for the Bucks until I noticed that the Cavaliers have not won a game in 32 days. The Cavs sit a 8-32, while Milwaukee is now 15-24. The Bucks beat the Wizards, as Corey Maggette is shooting pretty well right now. Don't count the Cavs out for tonight. Bogut is sick, John Salmons his a hip injury, and that could force the Bucks to play bench warmers all night long.
Carlos Delfino Might Suit UpA bright spot is the recovery of Carlos Delfino. He's almost ready to suit up, and may be on the bench for the game tonight. After his second head injury of the season, I really didn't follow his recovery progress. To read about what he has gone through is sad. Delfino couldn't read, or work on a computer. He spent days lying in the dark, not knowing the day or time. After a serious injury like that, it's best to take as much time as you need to recover.

The Bucks had the game in hand all the way to the middle of the third quarter. Then Dwayne Wade woke up, and slapped our team to the ground. Wade scored 17 of 34 in the fourth, and that's all it took to kill the upset. The Heat is now seven games into a win streak. Milwaukee on the other hand is now seven games under .500 on the road, and 9.5 games behind the Bulls.
Bucks Versus Magic Tonight
To make matters worse, the Bucks will be driving up the road to Orlando today and face another hot team in the Magic. Orlando is working on their own win streak, and would love nothing better than to keep it going.
The Bucks are doing a bit better at home this season. They are 8-7 at the Bradley Center. That slim edge will be challenged when the Heat comes to town on Friday. No Jennings, no Redd, few wins, and it's darn cold outside.
