Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer is in NBA health and safety protocol, ESPN reported on Wednesday.

Assistant coach Darvin Ham will lead the Bucks in their home game Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, who suffers from an illness unrelated to COVID, will also be unavailable for the Bucks.

The Bucks were already shorthanded, especially at guard post. Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton are in the protocol, and Donte DiVincenzo is expected to be out for several weeks with an ankle injury.

The Bucks begin a three-game road trip to Brooklyn on Friday and return home on January 13 to face the Golden State Warriors.
