Malcolm Brogdon no longer using walking boot
The Milwaukee Bucks are well on their way to being the top seed in the Eastern Conference when the postseason begins, and they are hoping to have Malcolm Brogdon back at some point during their championship pursuit. Fortunately, it appears the point guard is progressing in the right direction.
Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Sunday that Brogdon is no longer using a walking boot and has gone from two crutches to one over the past week.
Positive Bucks injury news: Malcolm Brogdon is off crutches and out of his walking boot. He had progressed from two crutches to just one this week and now is walking without accessories.

Brogdon has not played since he suffered a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot against the Miami Heat on March 15. His initial timeline for recovery was 6-8 weeks, and it has been about two. The NBA playoffs begin in two weeks, so Brodgon could return with plenty of postseason games left if the Bucks make a run and his recovery is closer to the six-week timeline.
While the Bucks have held onto the top spot in the East without Brogdon, the former Virginia star is averaging 15.6 points per game. Milwaukee is a much better and deeper team with him, so hopefully he continues to make progress with the injury.
