They will begin the first round on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET when hosting the Chicago Bulls.

Milwaukee is healthy heading into the first round and will have most of its key starters/role players on the floor for the series against Chicago. A few guys are dealing with some bumps and bruises, but should be ready to go.
Forward Serge Ibaka was listed as a day-to-day on the latest injury report with a non-COVID related illness while George Hill was also listed as day-to-day with abdominal injury. Guard Grayson Allen missed the last three games of the regular season with a hip injury. All three should be ready to for Sunday.
