Bucks pick up options on Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Bucks announced Thursday they have exercised the third-year contract option on guard Giannis Antetokounmpo and the fourth-year contract option on John Henson, per the team's official website. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo to start at point guard Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Bucks coach Jason Kidd indicated Monday that the team will start Giannis Antetokounmpo at point guard in Tuesday's preseason action against the Cavaliers, the team announced.

Kidd and Bucks assistant Gary Payton are two of the most prolific point guards of the past 25 years, and it appears Antetokounmpo is on the verge of taking over the mantle at the position for Milwaukee after playing point guard during the summer league. If he sticks, the second-year player would be one of the taller players at the position in recent memory at just an inch under seven feet.


Hype may be too high for Giannis Antetokounmpo


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) No matter what he accomplishes in his second NBA season, Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is likely to be a historical outlier, given his age. The question is, how much of a leap can the now-20-year-old take next season.

Only 15 players in NBA history have logged as many minutes in a single season as a teenager as Antetokounmpo's 1,897, so he is occupying fairly rarified air already. His age is a big part of why he is considered a big-time breakout prospect for Fantasy purposes, but he has a long way to go from a statistical standpoint.

Antetokounmpo was good for a 19-year-old rookie, but his season averages of 6.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game left a lot to be desired. It is easy to dream about a Antetokounmpo taking a big step forward, but that next step is never guaranteed -- for every Anthony Davis there is a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist whose development follows a slower, less linear path. 

Antetokounmpo was very good -- for a 19-year-old. However, Fantasy owners don't get extra points, rebounds or assists if the degree of difficulty is higher, so you are betting on Giannis taking a huge step forward at the age of 20. Antetokounmpo has become something of an internet darling, and his play in Summer League and the FIBA World Cup dominated much of the offseason discussion, which only helped build the hype to potentially unsustainable levels. 

He is a lottery ticket, for sure, but he is one that might not be worth the cost at this point. 


Giannis Antetokounmpo plays through ankle woes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo made a surprise return to action Saturday, as he ended up missing no time as a result of an ankle injury after being cleared to play just before tipoff vs. Miami.

Antetokounmpo was able to play 22 minutes in the game, though he obviously struggled to adapt to playing with the ankle hurting him. He scored just one point while missing all five of his field-goal attempts, though he did add four rebounds, two assists and one block in an 88-67 loss.

Antetokounmpo told reporters after suffering the injury Thursday that it was the first time he had aver sprained an ankle, so it was surprising to see him take the floor so soon. He is putting together a solid rookie season, averaging 7.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in just 24.4 minutes per game. 


Update: Giannis Antetokounmpo will be available


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2014) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will be available for Saturday's game against the Heat, despite being ruled out earlier in the game. The team updated his status just before gametime, as he feels comfortable enough to play through the ankle sprain suffered in the team's last game. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo ruled out Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2014) Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will sit out Saturday's game against the Heat, due to an ankle injury suffered in the team's previous game.

Antetokounmpo will be re-evaluated Sunday and is expected to travel on the team's upcoming three-game road trip, set to begin Monday in Detroit. 


Giannis Antetokounmpo leaves with ankle sprain


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered a sprained ankle he could not return from Thursday, in a 108-105 win over the Lakers.

Antetokounmpo suffered the injury midway through the fourth quarter on an offensive foul, and had to be helped immediately to the locker room. X-rays taken on the ankle came back negative, and the team confirmed he has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle. Antetokounmpo told FOXSportsWisconsin.com it is the first time he has ever suffered a sprained ankle.

Antetokounmpo was in the midst of a solid game, having scored 10 points with seven rebounds, one block and three steals in 25 minutes before the injury. He will likely be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Heat.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giannis Antetokounmpo limited to five points vs. Hawks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2014) Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo (back spams) showed some rust and was not at his best on Saturday, as he scored five points on 2 of 6 shooting, including 0 of 2 from behind the arc, and 1 of 2 from the free throw line in a 112-87 defeat to Atlanta.

He has averaged 8.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists over his last five games played.

Giannis Antetokounmpo's back not a concern


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2014) Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo fought through back pain Friday against the Cavaliers, and the injury does not seem serious enough to cost him time moving forward. According to BrewHoop.com, Antetokounmpo is not listed on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Hawks, so he should have no problem suiting up for that evening's game. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo aggravates back injury vs. Cavs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2014) Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo said he experienced back pain before Friday's game against the Cavaliers, but decided to play. He aggravated the injury in the fourth quarter of a 93-78 loss, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Antetokounmpo played the entire game and logged 26 minutes of game action, scoring 10 points on 3 of 5 shooting from the field, including 2 of 3 from downtown, and 2 of 2 from the charity stripe. He also chipped in with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal.

Antetokounmpo has been one of the few bright spots in a rather disappointing season for the Bucks. His status remains uncertain for Saturday's game against the Hawks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo out to prove himself


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) The Bucks used the No. 15 pick in this year's draft on a relative unknown, even in basketball circles. Giannis Antetokounmpo entered the draft without much of a track record against high-level competition, though he showed a pretty diverse skill set while playing for Greece in the Under-20 European Championship this summer.

"I had never played against the best guys in Europe before, to see what I've got, and it was a very good experience," Antetokounmpo told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We had 10 games in 13 days. We had some guys on our team who were very good shooters and scorers. If I can't do that, I have to do something else. Defense, blocking (shots) and rebounding."

Antetokounmpo averaged 8.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists per game, while adding 1.4 blocked shots to finish seventh in the tournament. Coach Larry Drew traveled to Estonia to watch Antetokounmpo play in the tournament, one of the first times Drew has been able to watch him in person.

"It's good to know your coach cares about you and wants to know things about you," Antetokounmpo said.

Antetokounmpo's role at the start of the season has yet to be determined.
