For the first time in a long time, the Milwaukee Bucks are expected to have their All-Stars on the court at the same time on Monday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middelton are both listed as probable for Monday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. Middleton has been sidelined for the last 18 with knee soreness. He previously missed Milwaukee’s first 20 games of the season with a wrist injury and has played in just seven games this season.

Antetokounmpo, meanwhile, has missed five straight games with his own knee injury. Head coach Mike Budenholzer has previously described Antetokounmpo’s absence as precautionary.

“Him being healthy, taking care of him is always our priority, we’re probably always going to err on the side of caution because we know how important he is to us,” Budenholzer told reporters.
