The Milwaukee Bucks have been playing essentially the entire 2021-2022 season without their starting center. On Monday, they’ll be getting him back in the lineup.
It was reported in early December that Lopez would be sidelined indefinitely following his back surgery. He averaged 12.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game during the 2020-2021 season across 70 contests.
In Lopez’ absence, Milwaukee has still been among the best teams in the NBA. They are currently in third place in the Eastern Conference at 42-26.
