Bucks point guard Donte DiVincenzo has been assigned to the Wisconsin Herd of the G League, making a return this month seem possible, as relayed by Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.Donte DiVincenzo

DiVincenzo, 24, is 6-foot-4 and suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Game 3 of the Bucks’ first-round playoff series vs. the Heat. He underwent surgery in June and has yet to appear in a game this season.

He averaged career-highs of 10.5 points and 5.8 assists in 66 games last season, shooting 38 percent on 3-pointers. Once healthy, he will rejoin a Bucks backcourt that includes the likes of Jrue Holiday, Pat Connaughton, Grayson Allen, Rodney Hood, Javonte Smart and recent signeee Wesley Matthews.

“Getting DiVincenzo back will be a massive boost for the Bucks,” wrote Dalton Sell of Fansided. “While he will not reclaim his spot in the starting five in all likelihood, the guard will undeniably be a crucial piece off the bench following his career year in 2020-21.”
