Johnny O'Bryant starting over Chris Copeland Friday for Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks power forward Johnny O'Bryant is starting and Chris Copeland will move to the bench on Friday.

What It Means:

Giannis Antetokounmpo is back after a one-game suspension and starting at small forward, so the Bucks want a bigger body at power forward against the Wizards. O'Bryant averaged just 4.1 points and 1.5 boards in his 15 starts last season.

In 17 minutes in the Bucks' opening game, Bryant pulled down three rebounds while missing his only shot attempt of the night. Tonight against the Wizards, we project Bryant to have 6.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in 20 minutes of action.
