Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), Gary Payton II (ankle) and John Henson (eye) are listed as probable to play against the Jazz on Saturday in the game notes.
This is off the game notes, so don't put too much stock into this information. Antetokounmpo was just dealing with soreness on Wednesday, so hopefully getting a few days off is enough to get him right. He did have knee problems over the summer, so this will be something to watch. Nov 24 - 5:00 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee soreness) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

This is the same knee injury that bothered him over the summer and kept him out of EuroBasket. It sounds like it's just a precaution to sit him down and the Bucks are likely hopefully he will be back out there on Saturday. This game isn't in a back-to-back set either, so there is some reason to be concerned he's not out there. With him out, Eric Bledsoe should be very busy in his revenge game. Malcolm Brogdon and Khris Middleton should also step up while DeAndre Liggins figures to get more minutes.

The Bucks' four-game win streak was snapped on Saturday, despite Giannis Antetokounmpo's career-high 17 rebounds, with 24 points, three steals, two assists and one 3-pointer.

Antetokounmpo came in averaging a league-high 30.6 points per game, and his stellar 57.8% from the field was second only to LeBron James among non-centers. He made just 7-of-20 FGs and 9-of-13 FTs tonight, but fantasy owners still benefited from his steals and career-best work on the glass. He's simply ridiculous.
Nov 18 - 11:52 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 21 points (8-of-16 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), six boards, one assist, three steals and four blocks in 35 minutes vs. Detroit.

Giannis' league-leading 31.3 points per game will dip after this performance, but you won't hear fantasy owners complaining. He can stuff the stat sheet like few others and the lack of assists will only be concerning if it becomes a trend -- he averaged a solid 5.0 per game in his first three games with Eric Bledsoe.
Nov 16 - 12:09 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 10-of-22 shots and 7-of-9 free throws for 27 points in Monday's 110-103 win over the Grizzlies.

The Bucks are .500 again after their third straight win as Giannis continues his MVP-caliber season. The Greak Freak played 44 minutes in this one, racking up nine rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, two steals and two turnovers. He hasn't hit a 3-pointer in four straight games, but who needs a 3-point shot when he can get to the rim any time he wants.
Nov 13 - 10:54 PM

The Bucks won at home on Saturday behind Giannis Antetokounmpo's 33 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 40 minutes.

Giannis continues to post absurdly efficient, well-rounded fantasy lines. In Milwaukee's past three games he's a combined 40-of-64 from the field (62.5 percent) with 12.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.7 blocks. The only thing that's lacking is 3-pointers, but even if he doesn't hit them consistently he's still a candidate for No. 1 overall value in most formats.
Nov 12 - 12:12 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to a 94-87 win over the Spurs on Friday with 28 points (12-of-24 FGs, 4-of-8 FTs), 12 rebounds, five assists, four blocks and one steal in 36 minutes.

If you were worried about Eric Bledsoe impacting Giannis' fantasy value, take another look at tonight's line. They don't call him the Greek Freak for nothing and he's going to eat first on offense no matter what. He helped the Bucks snap a four-game losing streak and could be the MVP in real life and in fantasy.
Nov 11 - 12:10 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo notched 40 points on 16-of-21 shooting in Tuesday's 124-119 loss to the Cavaliers.

This was the perfect storm for Giannis, as the Cavs had the worst defensive rating in the NBA entering tonight's game -- he also dropped 34 points against them in their previous meeting. Giannis knocked down 8-of-11 free throws with nine rebounds, three assists and four blocks, though he did turn the ball over a career-high eight times. The Bucks traded for Eric Bledsoe on Tuesday morning, but there's no reason why Giannis can't be one of, if not the, best fantasy assets this season.
Nov 7 - 9:50 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, four blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes during a 105-96 loss to the Pistons on Friday.

While this line certainly works, it's not like the nuclear explosions we saw earlier this season. Antetokounmpo's usage rate has seen a downward trend and he's not getting nearly as many points in the paint. In fact, he had at least 59.1 percent of his points come in the paint for each of his first four games, but he's exceeded that number just once in his last five games. Nitpicking aside, Antetokounmpo is going to be a monster this year as an MVP candidate. The Bucks falling to 4-5 certainly hurts his case, though.
Nov 3 - 11:26 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo lit up the Hawks for 33 points (14-of-21 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) during Sunday's road win in Atlanta, adding 12 rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

Just how good has Giannis been this year? He's the first player in NBA history to average at least 35 points, 10 rebounds and five assists through five games to begin a season. He didn't have any defensive stats tonight, but that's a true rarity -- it happened twice during the entire 2016-17 season. We had lofty expectations for Giannis this year, and he's exceeding them.
Oct 29 - 6:22 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had another monster stat line in a 96-89 loss to the Celtics on Thursday, scoring 28 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two 3-pointers and one block in 42 minutes.

The NBA's leading scorer continues to be ridiculous on the offensive side and this was his first game below 32 points. Most elite NBA scorers aren't very efficient in isolation, but Giannis came into tonight with a top-ranked 1.3 points per possession in isolation including passes (minimum 10 attempts, per Synergy). NBA teams can't keep him out of the paint with 57.8 percent of his shots from within three feet, making 76.2 percent from that range -- league average is 62.4. With five games down, Antetokounmpo looks like the favorite for MVP.
Oct 27 - 12:02 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo stayed hot on Monday with 32 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and six turnovers on 13-of-21 shooting.

He's now averaging 36.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals, 1.3 blocks and a true shooting percentage of 69.6 percent. If you took him with the No. 1 pick in fantasy this season, you're loving life. And if he somehow fell to you at No. 4 or 5, you got a steal.
Oct 23 - 10:56 PM

The NBA announced on Monday that Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden were named Player of the Week for their respective conferences.

Expect plenty more Player of the Week honors for Giannis this season. Antetokounmpo averaged 38.3 points (while shooting a scorching 67.2 percent from the floor), 9.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.7 steals over the Bucks first three games. His 115 points scored through the first three games of the season are the second-most in franchise history and tied for the ninth-most in NBA history.
Oct 23 - 4:18 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo bulldozed his way to a career-high 44 points in Saturday's 113-110 win over Portland, adding eight boards, four dimes, two steals, one block, one triple and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

Not only did The Greek Freak set a new career-high in this one, but he also came through with two huge defensive stops within the final 30 seconds of the game to truly seal the deal for Milwaukee. Antetokounmpo's freakish combination of size and athleticism has allowed him to dominate in the paint, with 76 of his 115 points through the first three games of the year coming from directly under the bucket on 80.9 percent shooting. He'll be on a lot of championship squads this season.
Oct 22 - 12:40 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo nailed 15-of-22 field goals to finish with a game-high 34 points during Friday's home loss against the Cavaliers.

Antetokounmpo also grabbed eight boards to go along with eight assists, three steals and a blocked shot across 39 minutes, as he continues to show why he was an early pick in the first round in all fantasy drafts. He contributes in so many categories and is in the argument for the No. 1 player overall in fantasy.
