The Milwaukee Bucks are enjoying an historic season in 2019-20, having already clinched a playoff berth. Giannis Antetokounmpo has carried much of the load for the Eastern Conference leaders, but the team may be forced to rely on some other weapons for a while.
After undergoing an MRI, Giannis is reportedly dealing with a minor joint capsule sprain in his knee, per Shams Charania.
The Bucks will provide a status update on the superstar during the upcoming week, though he'll miss the final two games of the road trip.
Antetokounmpo sustained the injury during Friday's clash against the Lakers after falling and landing awkwardly, a knock which also left the Greek Freak with a cut lip which required stitches.
Antetokounmpo will be sidelined for the Bucks' back-to-back on Sunday and Monday on the road in Phoenix and Denver, as the team concludes its three-game road trip.
The current MVP favorite, Antetokounmpo has posted season averages of 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists and one block and steal. He's also added the deep ball to his arsenal, knocking down 30.6% of his attempts (up from just 25.6% last year), and hitting 1.5 per night.
