Giannis Antetokounmpo to miss next 2 games with knee soreness

Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo to miss next two games

Antetokounmpo has steadily improved each season during his four-plus years in the National Basketball Association since the Bucks selected him with the 15th overall pick in 2013. On Thursday, Antetokounmpo was named a starter for the 2018 NBA All-Star Game and is the first Buck since Marques Johnson (1979-80) to be named a starter in two straight All-Star Games.

On Saturday, the Bucks announced that Giannis Antetokounmpo will sit out Milwaukee's games at Philadelphia on Saturday and at home against Phoenix on Monday to help control soreness in his right knee.

Antetokounmpo, who has already missed two games this season due to pain in his knee, is expected to be back in the lineup against the Nets on January 26.

He also leads the National Basketball Association in minutes per game (37.4).

Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe should see an uptick in production.
