Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo filled the stat sheet during Saturday's loss to the Clippers.
Insight: He was 8-of-12 from the floor and 2-of-3 from the line for 18 points, nine rebounds, six assists, two steals,and three turnovers. Antetokounmpo is now averaging 12.3 ppg, 5.9 rpg, and 2.0 apg, while shooting 50 percent from the field.
 
12/18/2014 9:10:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo will start on Thursday versus the Kings.
Insight: Antetokounmpo was playing very well Wednesday before his injury, so the fact he is out there should give owners enough confidence to start him.
 
12/18/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo is doubtful for Thursday's game against Sacramento due to a sprained left ankle.
Insight: Antetokounmpo is averaging 12.2 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 1.8 apg and is a 30-plus minute a night guy when healthy.
 
12/13/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 72 percent from the floor to help lift the Bucks over the Clippers, 111-106, on Saturday.
Insight: Antetokounmpo also shot 4-of-5 from the free-throw line Saturday. He reeled in five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block for his stat line as well.
 
11/23/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo was very efficient during Saturday's loss to the Wizards.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field and 8-of-8 from the stripe for 20 points. Antetokounmpo also had five assists, four rebounds, three steals, and two turnovers. Now that he is back in the starting lineup, owners need to start him with confidence.
 
11/21/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play against the Raptors on Friday. UPDATE: He will play against the Raptors.
Insight: Originally ruled out, Antetokounmpo is available despite an ankle injury. Who knows how many minutes he will actually play.
 
11/21/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play against the Raptors on Friday.
Insight: Antetokoumpo is out with an ankle injury. He rolled his ankle on his teammate's foot during Wednesday's game. Stay tuned because he could miss more than just Friday.
 
11/19/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 7-of-11 to help the Bucks beat the Nets, 122-118, in triple overtime on Wednesday.
Insight: Despite it being an early regular season game, it had extra meaning for coach Jason Kidd to defeat his old team. Brandon Knight could have won the game with a layup at the end of the first overtime, but he missed the wide open shot. Antetokounmpo had 18 points and 12 rebounds.
 
10/28/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo may start at small forward in the season opener.
Insight: We don't normally like to write notes with "may" in them, but this just proves Jason Kidd is again lost as a head coach. A day before the season opener, he has admitted he doesn't know who is starting. The Greek freak could start at guard or small forward. If he plays at SF, then Jabari Parker will start at power forward.
 
10/23/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo can play any spot on the floor.
Insight: With his ball skills and at 6-foot-11 and 217 pounds, Jason Kidd could use him anywhere. He worked at shooting guard and small forward last season, but Kidd has been testing him out, with very little success, at point guard. Hopefully, Kidd defines his role by the start of the season. The Greek is a potential sleeper.
 
7/16/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: The Bucks have been experimenting with Giannis Antetokounmpo at point guard in the Summer League and are seriously considering starting him there during the regular season. SOURCE: nba.com
Insight: If Milwaukee chooses to go that route, who better to guide the Greek Freak than new coach Jason Kidd? Even if he's kept at shooting guard, the 19-year-old Antetokounmpo is a big part of Milwaukee's future plans and should be used way more in 2014-15 after averaging 24.6 minutes per game as a rookie.
 
3/31/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo had 14 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes Monday at Detroit.
Insight: The 19-year-old Antetokounmpo has been too inconsistent to use in fantasy leagues.
 
3/28/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered a right ankle sprain Thursday night and is questionable for Saturday's game against Miami
Insight: Antetokounmpo claims its the first one he every suffered. he hasn't been performing at a fantasy worthy level of late, but his absence would help Brandon Knight and Ramon Sessions' values.
 
Cold3/9/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo has averaged just 6.4 ppg on .346 shooting his last 14 games.
Insight: Antetokounmpo's minutes have dipped to 22.6 per game over his last five games and he has scored single-digit points in four straight. The 19-year-old has loads of potential but won't realize it this season, especially when the Bucks are more concerned with getting minutes to Khris Middleton and Nate Wolters.
 
2/3/2014 11:59:00 PM
Description: Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo had 15 points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes Monday against the Knicks.
Insight: The rookie has been inconsistent, sandwiching a three-point game with two 15-pointers and failing to score in double figures in two straight since Jan. 18-19, but he still has the potential to be a solid contributor in a handful of categories.
 
1/25/2014 7:42:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo says he's starting Saturday despite dealing with a sore back, according to Andrew Gruman of foxsportswisconsin.com.
Insight: Antetokounmpo aggravated the injury Friday but will try to play through it. He has averaged 9.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 threes over his last seven games.
 
1/25/2014 3:56:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo aggravated a back injury during Friday's loss to Cleveland. Look for him to be a game-time decision tonight against the Hawks. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: If Antetokounmpo has to sit out, it would open up a spot in the starting lineup for O.J. Mayo. As bad as Mayo (12.5 ppg) has been this season, it would be hard for anyone to have a bad game against the injury-depleted Hawks.
 
1/11/2014 10:52:00 PM
Description: Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo had 13 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes Saturday night.
Insight: The 19-year-old out of Greece did very little as a small forward, averaging just 16.5 minutes and 0.7 ppg the last three games, but he returned to shooting guard Saturday with Khris Middleton started at small forward. Hopefully coach Larry Drew will recognize Antetokounmpo's strengths and keep him at SG.
 
Cold1/11/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo has done very little since being to the small forward.
Insight: The 19-year-old out of Greece went scoreless Friday night - his second such game in the last three contests. The excitement of mid-December is gone.
 
12/18/2013 5:53:00 PM
Description: The Bucks are "close" to moving rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo into the starting lineup, according to yahoo.com's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Insight: The 19-year-old out of Greece can play shooting guard and both forward spots. O.J. Mayo isn't likely to be benched, so it looks like either Ersan Ilyasova or Khris Middleton will lose his starting job. Antetokounmpo has averaged 30.5 minutes, 12 points and 8,7 rebounds over his last three games.
