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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
