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

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

Also unavailable for the Bucks will be Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has a non-COVID illness.

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

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