The Milwaukee Bucks certainly aren't at full strength as they prepare to play the final two games of the regular season, but they will get one key player back for Monday's regular season home finale against Denver.

Point guard Brandon Jennings will return to the starting lineup after missing the past two games with a sore Achilles' tendon. Jennings left six minutes into Wednesday night's overtime loss in Orlando and didn't play against Atlanta and Charlotte over the weekend.

"He has two games here before the playoffs, so he has a chance to get himself back into a little bit of a game rhythm," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said. "(We'll) take advantage of that and have him play these next two and have a couple days of practice to get ready for Miami."

While Jennings is back, center Larry Sanders won't play against the Nuggets and there's a good chance he won't play in Wednesday's regular season finale in Oklahoma City.

Sanders suffered a hard fall while being fouled going up to the rim in the first quarter against the Magic and hasn't played since with a sore lower back.
