  • Antetokounmpo is completely healthy heading into training camp, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Antetokounmpo was held out of the EuroBasket tournament over the summer while battling an undisclosed knee issue, but Bucks GM Jon Horst said Monday that the team has "no concern" with the All-Star's health. Coach Jason Kidd confirmed that notion, essentially ending any speculation that the knee injury -- on which reporting had been a bit murky over the summer -- would be a storyline heading into camp. Expect Antetokounmpo to again be the focal point of the Bucks' offensive attack and rank as one of the top fantasy commodities in the NBA at any position.

  • Antetokounmpo, due to persistent knee soreness, has chosen not to participate in EuroBasket this season, Eric Nehm of ESPN Milwaukee reports. Antetokounmpo missed a five-day chunk of EuroBasket practice earlier in August due to knee soreness, with the issue failing to subside. The star also cited exercises the Bucks' staff had him perform in China being too painful to complete, ultimately forcing him to withdraw from his national team to ensure his health for the NBA season. It remains to be seen if this issue will carry over into training camp.

  • Antetokounmpo will miss five days of Eurobasket practice with the Greek national team due to right knee discomfort, which an MRI revealed to be nothing serious. There's plenty of reason for the Bucks' star player to err on the side of caution, as neither he nor the Milwaukee organization want him hobbled coming into training camp. For that reason, the fact that he's missing five days of practice shouldn't be viewed as a cause for concern, especially since his MRI came back clean.

  • Antetokounmpo provided 34 points (13-23 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-13 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 47 minutes during Thursday's 92-89 Game 6 loss to the Raptors. Antetokounmpo played all but one minute during Thursday's game, dominating on both sides of the ball on route to a new career high in playoff points in a game. Though he played with intensity and dominance, the Bucks ultimately couldn't get the victory as the Greek Freak struggled with his free-throws down the stretch. That being said, only two other players scored in double figures for Milwaukee -- Khris Middleton with 19 and Matthew Dellavedova with 12. Antetokounmpo's struggles from the charity stripe in Game 6 aside, he ultimately had not only a coming out party this series, but for the whole season. He finished the 2016-17 campaign averaging 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.6 steals while shooting 52.1 percent from the field across 35.6 minutes per game -- certainly worthy of Most Improved Player consideration.

  • Antetokounmpo posted 30 points (12-19 FG, 6-9 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, and three blocks in 41 minutes during Monday's 118-93 loss to the Raptors in Game 5. Antetokounmpo finished with playoff career highs in scoring and steals, but it wasn't enough to help the Bucks steal the win. He has exceeded 40 minutes in three of the last four games in the series, and Antetokounmpo should be expected to see lots of time once again when Milwaukee tries to stay alive in Thursday's Game 6.
