As of now, De’Andre Hunter is the only piece the Hawks will undoubtedly be without for Game 1 versus the Bucks. As I reported earlier, Bogdan Bogdanovic remains questionable for Wednesday’s game. Nate McMilan said today the knee that caused Bogdanovic to be removed from Game 6 is still sore after he lumbered his way through Game 7. However, the Hawks could end up bringing back a refreshing face. According to Mike Conti of 92.9 The Game, Cam Reddish has been upgraded to questionable for tomorrow’s game.

It’s also worth noting that the Hawks posted some pictures from their practice today in Milwaukee, and Reddish and Bogdanovic were featured.

We won’t know anything until tomorrow, but Reddish was medically cleared to return during the last series. The Hawks just wanted him to get some 5-on-5 run in practice before thrusting him into the fire. That’s difficult to do when you’re in the middle of a seven game series. If Reddish does make an appearance, I still expect it to be a limited one, given he hasn’t played since February. However, no team has ever complained about more depth, and his length would be a welcome addition against a big Bucks team.
Hopefully, Bogdanovic’s knee makes some progress overnight, but the fact that he’s on the court smiling at practice is a promising sign.
