Coming off the bench Sunday
Coach Mike Budenholzer said Holiday will be on a minutes restriction Sunday, and he'll also be coming off the bench for the first time this season. The 30-year-old guard will be eased back into the rotation for Milwaukee, playing a backup role to D.J. Augustin in this game. Holiday has averaged 32.5 minutes per game so far this season, but he's probably looking at somewhere around 20-28 minutes for this contest.

The 33-year-old will rejoin Milwaukee's starting five after a one-game absence due to a personal matter. Jrue Holiday (COVID-19 protocols) was sidelined for the past 10 games but will come off the bench Sunday. Augustin should have a lesser role than the 28.3 minutes he averaged in his past three starts, and Holiday should rejoin the lineup once he gets back up to speed.

To be on minutes limit Sunday
Holiday will be back as expected for Milwaukee after missing the last 10 games due to the league's health and safety protocols. Coach Mike Budenholzer said he wasn't sure yet whether Holiday would start, but did say that he'll be on a minutes restriction (though he didn't specify how many minutes). Given the 10-game absence and the minutes limit, expectations should be relatively low for Holiday in his first game back.
