Giannis (ankle) probable for Nets game, per Bucks

News

After missing Friday’s game because of a right ankle sprain, Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as probable to play Sunday against the Brooklyn Nets, according to Milwaukee’s injury report.

Antetokounmpo sat out the Bucks’ 108-98 win over the Chicago Bulls on Friday, after he exited in the opening minute of a loss to Houston the previous night. The two-time MVP rolled his already-hurt ankle when he appeared to step on the foot of Rockets big man Kelly Olynyk while driving for a layup.

Antetokounmpo limped to the locker room and spent a few minutes there before returning to the bench, where he sat for the rest of the game. He finished with one point.

Antetokounmpo ranked fifth in the NBA in scoring (28 points per game) and seventh in rebounding (11.2) through Thursday. The Bucks are third in the Eastern Conference behind Brooklyn and Philadelphia.
