Updated injury report: Giannis Antetokounmpo questionable against Trail Blazers

0

The Milwaukee Bucks have announced that superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has been downgraded to questionable for Monday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Giannis, who was initially listed as probable, is struggling with left ankle pain that now plans to sideline him in this contest against the Blazers in Milwaukee.

Unsurprisingly, Giannis tops a short list of MVP favorites at this point in the season. Averaging 29 PPG, 11 RPG and 6 APG on 54% from the field, few players in NBA history have done what Giannis has done not just this season, but for several consecutive years now.

Without him, the Milwaukee Bucks will have to rely heavily on Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday. Both players are scheduled to play Portland on Monday night, giving the Bucks two of their top three available players against a Blazers team that doesn’t seem interested in a playoff pursuit this season.

After dealing Norman Powell and CJ McCollum at the trade deadline, the Blazers have underscored their intention to rebuild their roster around Damian Lillard. With Dame injured and Portland nine games below .500, that pursuit will likely begin this offseason. When it comes to this game in Milwaukee, the Bucks should still be favored, even without Giannis.

The Blazers and Bucks are scheduled to give Milwaukee a 5:00 a.m. tip.
