Eric Bledsoe and Pat Connaughton will miss the Milwaukee Bucks game on Friday against the Boston Celtics.

Mike Budenholzer said that both players were still working on their conditioning following positive COVID-19 tests.

"Everybody else is getting ready to play in a live game and have had 10 to 12 to 14 days of probably 5-on-5 every other day and individual work and all that ... They just need to play, so I think that's a big hurdle, and with playing will come both conditioning and their rhythm, so we're going to make sure they get some of that before we put them in an NBA game," said Budenholzer.

Bledsoe and Connaughton, who both missed all three scrimmages, participated in a Thursday practice.
