Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Dishes four assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo finished with eight points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four boards, and four assists in 18 minutes of a 126-113 win against Washington on Tuesday.

Antetokounmpo saw his first action since the season restarted and brought valuable energy to a team that had lacked it through it's first six games in Orlando. Antetokounmpo received his extended look thanks to Milwaukee holding a number of its regulars out of the lineup. With the No. 1 seed locked up, he could see the floor again on Thursday against Memphis in the seeding round finale.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Doesn't practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo did not practice Friday due to head soreness, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Antetokounmpo was dunked on during Thursday's scrimmage against the Spurs and hit his head on the floor. Initial fears were a concussion, but he passed protocol and sat out just due to soreness. He should be considered questionable for Saturday's scrimmage against the Kings.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Career-high minutes load in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo started and played a career-high 19 minutes Monday in the Bucks' 109-95 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with nine points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block.

Milwaukee ruled out three players with injuries and held out four other regular rotation members for rest purposes in the second half of the back-to-back set, allowing Antetokounmpo to crack the starting five for the second time this season. The 27-year-old turned in a well-rounded line in his most extensive NBA action to date, but the performance probably won't translate to consistent minutes with Milwaukee. He'll likely drop back out of the rotation for the Bucks' next game Thursday versus the Celtics.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Starting on Greek Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo is starting Friday's game against the Nuggets, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

Antetokounmpo isn't expected to see much playing time in this one, but with it being Greek Night at the Fiserv Forum, coach Mike Budenholzer is giving him the start. Brook Lopez will come off the bench as a result.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Ready to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo (illness) is listed as available for Monday's game against the Knicks.

The Bucks previously listed Antetokounmpo as out for a fourth straight contest on account of the stomach illness, but he evidently showed enough improvement at the team's morning shootaround to get the green light to play Monday. Though Antetokounmpo seems to be over the illness, he's not a lock to see any playing time versus New York if the game remains reasonably competitive throughout.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Feeling ill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The elder Antetokounmpo brother has only appeared in three of the Bucks' games this season, averaging just 4.3 minutes. Even if he recovers from the ailment in time for the 8 p.m. ET tipoff, Antetokounmpo won't be in line for any minutes while the game remains competitive.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Makes appearance in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo had no stats in two minutes during Saturday's 104-90 victory over Detroit.

Antetokounmpo didn't trouble the scorers at all during his two minutes on the floor Saturday. He is partially with the team to keep his brother happy and shouldn't be considered in any fantasy format.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo was assigned to the G League on Wednesday, Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News reports.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Yet to play for his new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo has seen no playing time across the first three games of the season and there is no indication that will change moving forward.

Antetokounmpo joined the Bucks on a two-year deal, although it would appear he is merely being used as an incentive to hold onto Giannis beyond this season. Antetokounmpo figures to remain on the bench where he can cheer on his younger brother and holds no fantasy value anywhere.

Bucks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Signing with Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo will sign a two-year contract with Milwaukee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Antetokounmpo had signed to play with the Bucks' summer league team but hasn't yet appeared for the team. The 26-year-old forward is the older brother of reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and last played for Panathinaikos in Greece. He's likely looking at a depth role at best with Milwaukee.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Joins Bucks for summer league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo signed a summer league contract with the Bucks on Friday, Mark Deeks of Sky Sports reporsts

The signing obviously stands out, as Thanasis is the older brother of Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. The 26-year-old had a brief stint with the Knicks before heading to Europe as a role player for Andorra in 2016-17. After that he won consecutive Greek Championships with Panathinaikos and appeared in two All-Star Games. He will now look to make an impression in summer league.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Signs contract with Spanish team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo signed a contract Saturday with Basquet Club Andorra S.A. of the Spanish ACB League, Sportando reports.

Antetokounmpo, the older brother of Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, spent the last three seasons kicking around the D-League before enjoying a two-game stint with the Knicks in 2015-16. The 24-year-old didn't make enough of an impression to stick with the Knicks once his 10-day contract expired, however, and after failing to receive a guaranteed deal from any team this offseason, he'll head to Spain to continue his playing career.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo's 10-day contract with the Knicks expired Sunday, Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports.

Antetokounmpo wasn't present for Monday's practice, an indication that the Knicks aren't planning on re-signing the forward to a second 10-day contract. The 23-year-old played in two games during his first stint in the NBA, scoring six points in six minutes of court time.

Knicks' Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Signed by Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo has been signed to a 10-day contract by the Knicks, Shams Charania of reports.

Antetokounmpo will finally have the chance to make his NBA debut and prove himself worthy of a spot on a roster after being drafted by the Knicks in the second round of the 2014 draft. The Knicks have quite a bit of depth at forward, even with Carmelo Anthony (knee) out, so it's unclear how much playing time Antetokounmpo will get.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo: Will sign with D League's Westchester Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Antetokounmpo will sign with the Knicks' D League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks, Ian Begley of reports.

Antetokounmpo was recently waived by New York prior to the start of the regular season, but the former 2014 second-round pick will have a chance to prove himself worthy of a call-up as he has signed with Westchester of the D League. He has yet to make his NBA debut, but his best chance appears to be with New York possibly sometime during the 2015-16 season if the right situation arises. In three preseason games with the Knicks, he was on the court for just 14 minutes, and finished with no points, four rebounds, and two assists.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A second-round pick of the Knicks in 2014, Antetokounmpo is still waiting to make his NBA debut and will now likely have to bide his time in the D-League before that chance arises. He logged just 14 minutes across three games with the Knicks in the preseason, finishing with no points, four rebounds, and a pair of assists.
