As I reported yesterday, Paul Millsap (right knee contusion) will not play against the Suns Sunday. He did not practice Saturday but did more light shooting following the brief workout. Millsap will travel with the team but there is no timetable for a return. The game with the Suns will be the fourth straight game miss due to the injury.

“He is going to travel and we’ll continue to work with
him and hopefully he progresses,” coach Mike Budenholzer said. “There is no more outlook than that.”

As I also reported yesterday, Pero Antic (right ankle stress fracture) had his status updated to day-to-day. He will also make the road trip. According to Budenholzer, Antic took part in 5-on-5 halfcourt scrimmaging in Friday’s practice. That is a positive sign that his return could come sooner rather than later.
