Giannis Antetokounmpo posted his first triple-double of the season during a 134-123 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday, scoring 36 points with 11 rebounds, 13 assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.
That's his ninth triple-double of his career to set a Bucks franchise record. This was also Antetokounmpo's first double-digit dime game of the year, and it's become very clear scoring the ball is his best attribute. Giannis sits at a tidy 60.6 TS% with his 31.7 usage rate on the season, so he's in some elite company with only six points qualifiers ever hitting those two numbers in a season. The Bucks will battle for playoff positioning in the second half and Giannis should be very active the rest of the way. Feb 15 - 10:39 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 7-of-16 shots for 15 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes of Tuesday's 97-92 win over the Hawks.

Khris Middleton also stayed hot with 21 points, seven boards, three assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer, and both he and Giannis are rolling, leading the Bucks to wins in five of their last six games, along with the No. 4 seed in the East. Giannis only has two 3-pointers over his last five games (2-of-11), but he'll get hot again from downtown soon enough. Giannis is the No. 8 player in nine-cat this season and Middleton checks in at No. 35 on Basketballmonster.com.
Feb 13 - 11:00 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished Saturday's 111-104 win at Orlando with 32 points across 38 minutes.

Antetokounmpo finished 14-of-24 from the field while adding five rebounds, five assists, two blocked shots and a steal. The only thing fantasy owners might complain about would be his 0-of-1 night from behind the arc and 4-of-7 night from the free-throw stripe. He still fought hard and ended up a plus-11 on the night, best among all players in the game. The Greek Freak has just two games on tap next week with the All-Star break coming up.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) scored 23 points in 35 minutes in Tuesday's 103-89 win over the Knicks.

If you were worried about Giannis' ankle after he left Sunday's game early, click on the link below and relax. He basically jumped right over Tim Hardaway Jr. for one of the best dunks of the season and led the Bucks to their straight win in the process. He finished 10-of-23 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line, adding 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks. He'll get a couple days of rest before Friday's game vs. Miami.
Feb 7 - 12:43 AM

Coach Joe Prunty said that Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) "is a go" for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Antetokounmpo tweaked his ankle in Sunday's win over the Nets in Brooklyn. He exited the contest and did not return. However, afterward, Giannis downplayed the injury and told reporters that he could've returned to that game if necessary. He should be locked and loaded into all starting fantasy lineups on Tuesday.
Feb 6 - 11:19 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

This confirms that he dodged a bullet when he tweaked his ankle on Sunday. He did say that he could've returned to that game if necessary and it sounds like this a minor issue. His owners can deploy him like they normally would as soon as we get confirmation that he's a go.
Feb 5 - 6:12 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle) said he could have returned to Sunday's game if necessary.

"I’ve twisted it twice in the last five games but I just gotta play through it," Antetokounmpo said. The best news is that the injury doesn't involve his troublesome knee, but he's still questionable to play vs. the Knicks on Tuesday. "We have a great medical staff," he said. "Hopefully I can be there [in New York]." We should know more Monday afternoon.
Feb 4 - 3:40 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo turned his right ankle in the fourth quarter on Sunday, but Bucks owner Marc Lasry said after the game that "Giannis is fine."

He had the ankle re-taped on the Bucks bench and didn't go into the locker room, finishing with 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one block in 28 minutes. It doesn't appear to be serious but we'll include him on the injury report as a precaution, since the Bucks won't take unnecessary risks with their superstar. Consider him questionable to face the Knicks on Tuesday.
Feb 4 - 2:36 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit the game-winning shot in Friday's 92-90 victory over the Knicks, scoring a game-high 29 points in 37 minutes.

He made countless winning plays in the fourth quarter and didn't seem limited by his ankle issue at all -- he reportedly had trouble putting weight on it the night before. Giannis hit 10-of-21 shots and 8-of-12 free throws, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals, two blocks and one triple. He has looked like a new player since returning from a two-game absence to rest his knee and should be in the mix as the top fantasy asset going forward.
Feb 3 - 12:05 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is ready to go against the Knicks on Friday.

He dodged a bullet after an ankle roll on Thursday night. This is great news on a back-to-back set and getting a green light even before warmups are over is even better. Antetokounmpo has cooled off since his torrid start, but he's still going to be a threat for the No. 1 player going forward.
Feb 2 - 6:23 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is listed as probable in the game notes for Friday against the Knicks.

We'll wait for another update here, but the early indication is that Antetokounmpo is going to be OK. As always, do not completely trust the game notes. We should get more confirmation on his status in about an hour.
Feb 2 - 5:21 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo said he twisted his ankle pretty badly on Thursday.

He was having trouble putting weight on it after the game and had a limp. The Bucks are almost certainly going to be missing Malcolm Brogdon (quad tendon), but they will get Jabari Parker (knee) back and hopefully Eric Bledsoe (ankle) will be OK. This stings even worse because the Bucks were down big late.
Feb 2 - 3:17 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored just 17 points with 15 rebounds, six assists and five turnovers in 36 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.

It's just his fourth game without a block or steal since the start of December, and second game under 20 points in that span, too. Antetokounmpo's defensive stats have dropped off with only 1.1 blocks and 1.0 steals in his January games. Of course, he's been an absolute monster in the other categories with 27.0 points, 10.2 boards, 5.1 dimes and 0.6 treys. He'll be a beast regardless of who's on the floor with him.
Feb 1 - 11:50 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo racked up 31 points, 18 rebounds, six assists, a block and a 3-pointer, hitting 10-of-22 shots and 10-of-10 free throws for one of his biggest lines of the season in Monday's 107-95 win over the Sixers.

In his three games without Jason Kidd as his coach, Giannis is averaging 33 points, 13.3 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers on 57 percent shooting. The 10-of-10 free throws were especially nice to see after he hit just 5-of-10 on Sunday, and it looks like he's going to be a different kind of monster the rest of the way for the Bucks. And the scary thing is that none of his stats tonight were even season highs.
Jan 29 - 10:46 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo netted 27 points on 11-of-19 shooting during Sunday's win over the Bulls, adding nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

Giannis got off to a slow start, missing his first five shot attempts, but he caught fire after halftime scoring 12 of his 27 points during the third quarter of action while rocking a 38.6 usage rate. If we want to nitpick, Antetokounmpo wasn't great from the charity stripe in this one, going 5-of-10 from the line, but he's typically much better than that, so we'd expect a more efficient outing in that area on Monday.
