Bucks tab Jerryd Bayless, Chris Copeland as starters
The Milwaukee Bucks will start Jerryd Bayless and Chris Copeland against the New York Knicks in Wednesday's season opener.
The Bucks are missing O.J. Mayo (hamstring), Jabari Parker (knee) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (one-game suspension), so both players will likely get some decent run tonight.
We see Bayless putting up 6.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists tonight. For Copeland, we project him for 7.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists. According to our metrics, Copeland was the least effective player for the Indiana Pacers last season posting the worst nERD (-4.0) and worst player efficiency (-3.8).
