Beno Udrih returned on Monday for the first practice since his sprained right ankle against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Nov. 30.
Udrih has missed the past 12 games but hopes to play on Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets.
"I want to be 100%," Udrih said. "Today it felt good. I think in two days it's going to get even better. I'm hoping I can feel really good so I can play on Wednesday. But I don't want to push it. I don't want to make it chronic or whatever."
Udrih is averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 assists while shooting 47.9 percent in 13 games played.
"Beno is a good all-around player," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "Beno can finish at the rim; he's a good open jump shooter. He's a veteran and he knows what's going on in the game. We've missed him out there, for sure."
