Milwaukee Bucks' Antetokounmpo to miss next two games to manage knee soreness

Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo reacts after a 24-second violation during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018, in Milwaukee.

Antetokounmpo, who has already missed two games this season due to pain in his knee, is expected to be back in the lineup against the Nets on January 26. That will give Antetokounmpo eight days off before his planned return Friday at home against Brooklyn.

Antetokounmpo has steadily improved each season during his four-plus years in the National Basketball Association since the Bucks selected him with the 15th overall pick in 2013.

He previously missed some time during the current season with right knee soreness. The All-Star starter missed a game on December 23 with a knee issue but has played every game since and is averaging more than 35 minutes per game in the month of January.

Antetokounmpo has built from a Most Improved Player campaign last season, now averaging a league second-best 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 blocks per game. Tony Snell will likely rejoin the starting lineup while he's out, while Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe will play bigger roles.
