Giannis Antetokounmpo to sit out at least two Bucks games after spraining knee

Giannis Antetokounmpo has a minor joint capsule sprain of his left knee and will not play in the remaining two games of the Milwaukee Bucks' road trip, the team announced.

"The way they described it to me is we'll see how the next few days go and kind of evaluate him and see where he is then," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Antetokounmpo suffered the injury in Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers and underwent an MRI, which revealed the injury.

He missed Sunday's 140-131 loss to the  Suns in Phoenix, and also will sit out Monday's game against the Denver Nuggets.

"Overall we're very pleased," Budenholzer said. "I think this is about as good an outcome and prognosis as we could hope for, I guess, unless it was nothing."

Antetokounmpo, the NBA's reigning MVP, is third in the NBA with a 29.6 points-per-game average.
