Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed doubtful for Thursday’s matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Dallas Mavericks due to a lingering knee injury.
He was a late addition to the injury report Tuesday and has missed two games due to the injury. He last played in a 127-109 win against the Portland Trail Blazers on Apr.2, playing 33 minutes, scoring 47 points, 12 rebounds and two assists.
A key playmaker for the Bucks, Giannis has played 45 games, averaging 34 minutes, 28 points, 11 rebounds and six assists per game. He also leads the team in usage with a 32.8% usage rate.
Expect Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday to see an increase in production with Giannis out. In 297.6 minutes without Giannis on the court, Middleton has a 28.7% and Holiday a 27.1% usage rate. They average 1.16 and 1.24 fantasy points per minute, respectively.
With a 32-18 record, the Bucks are +850 to win the NBA Championship on FanDuel Sportsbook. The team plays at the third-fastest pace in the league, averaging 101.9 possessions per game and lead the league in scoring, averaging 119.3 points per game.
