Milano has 21 wins and five losses heading into the game against eighth ranked Reggiana that has 13 wins and 14 losses this season.

Combo Forward Bentil is very likely to play against Reggiana due to Milano’s heavy schedule in the final half of the season. After playing two games in the Euroleague quarterfinals against Turkish side Anadolou Efes, Milano has an April 26 and April 28 match date in Turkey next week.
