The Milwaukee Bucks will be without their star for Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns. Bucks head coach Jason Kidd announced that star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will be sidelined for the contest due to right knee soreness. The forward himself told Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that it’s the same knee issue he endured over the summer and the plan is to be back for Saturday’s game against the Utah Jazz. There isn’t much that The Greek Freak hasn’t done this season, as he’s in the midst of Year 5 and continuing to climb the pecking order of NBA stars. Antetokounmpo is nearly averaging 30 points per outing through the early stages of the season, with his 29.7 clip trailing only that of James Harden, who paces the league with 31.6 points per game.
