Naturally, the Milwaukee Bucks are hoping Giannis Antetokounmpo's left knee sprain doesn't keep him sidelined for too long.

"We're hoping it's shorter rather than longer, but we'll see how these first 48-to-72 hours go and we'll know more then," head coach Mike Budenholzer said prior to his team's 140-133 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday, according to ESPN's Eric Woodyard.

Antetokounmpo's status for the Bucks' game versus the Boston Celtics on Wednesday hasn't been determined yet, Budenholzer added.
