Orlando Magic vs Milwaukee Bucks injury report, scheduled rosters & 5 ons – Nov 20, 2021
There will be a slight uptick in competition when the Orlando Magic visits defending champions Milwaukee Bucks for a mini-series starting on Saturday. After nearly beating the Brooklyn Nets without Kevin Durant, the young Magic will now face Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.
The Orlando Magic failed to muster enough shots late in the fourth quarter to contain James Harden’s Brooklyn Nets. They will face tougher competition against the Bucks, with Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday expected to be there to support the Greek Freak Antetokounmpo.
After nearly losing to the irrepressible Oklahoma City Thunder, the Milwaukee Bucks will face another young but tough team from Orlando Magic. Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to be a force to be reckoned with on both ends of the pitch for the Bucks. Mike Budenholzer’s side are hoping to see enough baskets from their other stars to help the two-time MVP.
Orlando Magic Injury Report
Jalen Suggs has been classified by the Orlando Magic as questionable due to a quad injury. But he played against the Brooklyn Nets. He’s still questionable for the same reason against the Milwaukee Bucks. E’Twaun Moore could make his season debut in this game

Orlando Magic vs Milwaukee Bucks lineup planned
Magic of Orlando
The usual suspects are expected to start for the Orlando Magic against defending champions Milwaukee Bucks. Their best players, Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs, are expected to occupy the backcourt.
Orlando’s ultra-big frontline could start again in this game. Rookie Franz Wagner’s mobility and shooting make him the perfect fit for the small attacking role. Wendell Carter Jr. and Mo Bamba are expected to take on the attacking and center duties, respectively.
The Milwaukee Bucks Big Three will only play together for the fourth time this season. They must take their usual places in the starting unit. Giannis Antetokounmpo will probably occupy the position of attacker, Khris Middleton the small striker and Jrue Holiday the leader.
Bobby Portis could return to his starting center spot, while Brook Lopez returns from injury. Grayson Allen is expected to play his usual role as a shooting guard.
