Bucks-Hawks Injuries: Giannis Antetokounmpo ACTIVE, Khris Middleton OUT
- Injury reports Bucks
The Bucks have won their previous game, a 111-107 thriller against the New York Knicks, and will look to continue their winning ways here. They were stout on defense, limiting the Knicks to just 38% shooting. If they want to challenge the Hawks on the road, they’ll need to maintain an aggressive stance.
Giannis Antetokounmpo played a game-high 36 minutes on Monday and led the Bucks to a 111-107 victory over the Knicks with 22 points (6-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 9-12 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, and two blocks.
Antetokounmpo bounced back from a poor showing on Friday due to soreness in his left knee by recording his eighth double-double in the last 10 games and 24th of the season, tying the two-time NBA MVP for third place in the league with teammate Bobby Portis. Through those contests, Antetokounmpo has shot 52.8% from the field while averaging 34.4 points, 13.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists.

Against the Hawks on Wednesday, Middleton will still be sidelined with a knee injury.
For fantasy managers, Middleton’s 2022-23 season is looking more like a lost season. Only seven games have seen him in action, and there is no word yet on when he will be back. Thursday night’s game against the Heat is Middleton’s next opportunity to play, but there have been no signs that he is close to being ready.
