Giannis Antetokounmpo News
Milwaukee Bucks power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has made a habit of amassing double-doubles over the past handful of seasons, and Tuesday's season-opening victory over Brooklyn was no different. On the same night that he received his NBA championship ring from last season, Antetokounmpo went out and made mincemeat of the Nets defense en route to a 32-point, 14-rebound, seven-assist showing. While the returns are a tremendously small sample size, he even shot 7-for-9 from the free-throw stripe after his well-documented woes there during the playoffs last year. Jrue Holiday (heel) departed the contest early, which could open up even more ball-handling opportunities for Antetokounmpo when he returns to action Thursday vs. Miami, who did a stout job in keeping his MVP-level production under wraps in three matchups last season.
Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will make his preseason debut in Sunday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has been dealing with a minor knee injury, but the team has also just been extra cautious with him. He is expected to be on a minutes limit for Sunday's game. He should be avoided in DFS on Sunday as he's unlikely to put up a sturdy stat line. Jordan Nwora and Giannis' young brother, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, should continue to see significant minutes in Sunday's game. Nwora in particular has put together some solid stat lines this preseason.
Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will not play in the team's preseason game against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday. The reigning NBA Finals MVP is nursing a minor knee injury, but it's nothing that should keep him out long. He just returned to practice this week and the team is being extra cautious with him. Several other Bucks are out with minor injuries on Friday, including Khris Middleton (hamstring), Bobby Portis (hamstring) and Jrue Holiday (knee). George Hill and Brook Lopez are two of the only Bucks regulars who will be suiting up on Friday.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) won't appear during the exhibition matchup against the Grizzlies. The Freak didn't travel to Memphis with the rest of the team as he continues to deal with lingering left knee soreness caused by a hyperextension sustained during the playoffs. With a shortened preseason, it's unlikely that the former MVP will see much action before the 2021 campaign officially begins, although he could get some minutes here or there. With Jrue Holiday (rest), Khris Middleton (hamstring), and Bobby Portis (hamstring) also out, Pat Connaughton, Grayson Allen, and Thanasis Antetokounmpo could get more minutes than expected on Tuesday night.
