The Bucks were shorthanded on Friday night as superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo missed the team’s 113-106 loss to the Wizards due to right quadriceps soreness and a left hip contusion, per The Associated Press.
The 24-year-old suffered the injuries a few games prior, which caused him to miss his third game of the season, per head coach Mike Budenholzer.
“Hopefully, it’s nothing too serious,” he said. “He got hit a few games ago and kind of been managing it.”
The Greek Freak has put himself into early MVP discussions. Through 38 games this season, Antetokounmpo is averaging 26.6 PPG, 12.8 RPG and 6.0 APG. His performance has put Milwaukee into the class of the Eastern Conference as their 29-12 record has them 1.5 games behind the Raptors for first place.
