Bayless Active vs. Hornets

Saturday, Jan. 16

The team announced Bayless is available to play against the Hornets.


Bayless Is Vital to Bucks' Backcourt Depth

Bayless was averaging a career-best 12.0 points per night this season heading into Jan. 4 and was shooting an impressive 43.6 percent from three-point range.

The Bucks have been one of the biggest disappointments in the league this year (14-21 before Jan. 4) after they battled the Chicago Bulls in last season’s playoffs and appeared to be primed for a jump in the standings, but the eight-year veteran has been one of the bright spots.

The Bucks don't want lingering health problems to limit them as they attempt to climb back into the Eastern Conference playoff picture, and getting Bayless back will go a long way toward improving their rotation.
