Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) to be 100 percent for Bucks
Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will be "completely and totally healthy" when the NBA resumes play in Orlando, according to head coach Mike Budenholzer.
Antetokounmpo missed the Bucks' final two games before the season was suspended due to a minor joint capsule sprain in his left knee that he suffered on March 6. "It's a huge advantage for us that Giannis will be completely and totally healthy," Budenholzer said. "He's in a great place, both mentally and physically." Per FanDuel Sportsbook, the Milwaukee Bucks (+240) have the best odds to win the NBA Championship.
Giannis is pacing all NBA players with 57.4 FanDuel points per game. He also has the highest usage rate (37.4) and a .583 effective field goal percentage (20th in the NBA).
