Giannis Antetokounmpo Will Miss Fifth Straight Game Sunday

Eric Nehm tweeted that the Milwaukee Bucks will be without two-time defending NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo for the fifth straight game on Sunday. Giannis remains out with left knee soreness.

The Bucks have cycled a few players through the power forward spot with Giannis sidelined. Pat Connaughton started the first game, Bobby Portis the next two, and Giannis’ kid brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo got the start most recently.

The salary information at FanDuel would imply that Bobby Portis has the highest ceiling of the trio. Portis carries a $5,800 salary on the main slate, compared to Connaughton’s $4,400 and Thanasis Antetokounmpo’s $3,900.
