      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Scores career-high 33 points

      Antetokounmpo poured in a career-high 33 points (12-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT) and added five rebounds, two assists, and two steals over 40 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers. Antetokounmpo more than held his own against LeBron James in a nationally-televised game, showing viewers everywhere that his early-season success is no mirage. The third-year forward has taken the leap forward as the Bucks' top player, churning out averages of 18.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and one block over 11 games, while making vast improvements on his shooting percentages across the board. At 20 years old and with a bundle of length and athleticism, Antetokounmpo may still be far away from reaching his peak.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Double-double in Saturday's win

      Antetokounmpo scored 16 points (6-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT) with 11 rebounds and three blocks in 45 minutes during Saturday's double-OT win over the Cavaliers. He fouled out late in the second overtime, but that can happen when you have to guard LeBron James for three-quarters of an hour. It was Antetokounmpo's first double-double of the season, but the third-year player has scored in double digits in all nine games he's played after missing the opener due to a suspension.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Scores 21 points Monday against Nets

      Antetokounmpo scored 21 points (8-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) with eight boards, three assists and two blocks in 42 minutes Monday against the Nets. It was the third straight game of 20 or more points for "The Greek Freak" and the Bucks were able to hold on for their first win. Antetokounmpo showcased his insane length and ability to handle the ball, baffling Brooklyn's defense all game long. Use him often in daily formats while his price tag remains low because it's only going up.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Scores game-high 20 on Sunday

      Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 20 points (8-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with nine rebounds, two assists and a block in 33 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Raptors. After missing the first game of the season with a suspension, Antetokounmpo has now missed consecutive 20 and 10 nights by a single rebound in each game. He seems poised to take his game to another level this season.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Serving suspension Wednesday

      Antetokounmpo (suspension) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Knicks. It's just a reminder for those in daily formats to avoid Antetokounmpo, as he'll be serving a one-game ban for his flagrant foul on the Bulls' Mike Dunleavy during the Bucks' first-round playoff series loss last spring. The Bucks will be a little thin at forward with Jabari Parker (knee) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) joining Antetokounmpo on the bench. Jerryd Bayless, Chris Copeland, and John Henson should all pick up heavier playing time loads with those players sidelined.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Pours in 23 points Friday

      Antetokounmpo turned in his best all-around performance of the preseason Friday against the Timberwolves, finishing with 23 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven boards, three blocks, and two steals over 33 minutes. Bucks coach Jason Kidd appeared to treat Friday's contest as a regular-season dress rehearsal, as Antetokounmpo was omitted from the starting lineup, which will be the case when he serves a one-game suspension during Wednesday's opener versus the Knicks. Kidd deployed Copeland as his starting power forward as a result, but Antetokounmpo still saw his usual allotment of minutes, and seemed to make the most of them. The lengthy, versatile 20-year-old is expected to see time at every position on the court this season, but his primary duties should fall at either forward spot.

      Giannis Antetokounmpo likely to see time at PF for Bucks

      Bucks emerging standout Giannis Antetokounmpo could see most of his time at power forward early in the season if Jabari Parker (knee) is unable to play, per Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Antetokounmpo started at the four spot Tuesday exhibition against the Timberwolves. Regardless of where he plays, Antetokounmpo's considerable length and speed and increasing bulk should make him a cornerstone of the Bucks' offensive and defensive efforts, so don't expect any noticeable downgrade or upgrade in his Fantasy value as a result. He will be suspended for the first game of the regular season, but is slated to make his debut Oct. 30 against the Wizards.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Sits out of practice because of illness

      Antetokounmpo sat out of practice with an illness Friday and is questionable for Saturday's game against the Wizards, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. It looks like a flu bug may have hit the Bucks, as both Antetokounmpo and Damien Inglis had to sit out Friday. While Inglis has been ruled out for Saturday, Antetokounmpo still may play, so consider him questionable at this point in time. If he doesn't play Saturday, his next opportunity to return will be Tuesday against the Timberwolves.

      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Won't play Tuesday

      Antetokounmpo will not play Tuesday against the Cavaliers, CF Gardner of the Journal Sentinel reports. The Bucks will hold Antetokounmpo out to rest Tuesday, and the Cavaliers will do the same with LeBron James. Jason Kidd has already announced that second-year forward Damien Inglis, who missed all of last season due to injury, will get the starting nod in Antetokounmpo's place.
