Bucks’ DiVincenzo To Make Season Debut On Wednesday

Donte DiVincenzo will make his season debut on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

DiVincenzo was a fixture in the Bucks’ starting lineup last season while averaging 10.4 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 3.1 APG. He suffered a torn ligament in his left ankle during the third game of Milwaukee’s first-round sweep of Miami and underwent surgery in June.

He’s been rehabbing with the G League’s Wisconsin Herd recently while preparing for his return to action.

The Bucks didn’t sign DiVincenzo to a rookie scale extension before the season, so he’ll be a restricted free agent next summer.

DiVincenzo will provide an immediate boost to the Bucks’ backcourt. Grayson Allen has become Jrue Holiday‘s backcourt partner in DiVincenzo’s absence and is averaging 13.0 PPG. Key reserve George Hill has been sidelined the past week with a knee issue.

The Bucks are finishing up a road swing in New York and Boston before returning home to play Indiana on Wednesday.
