Giannis Antetokounmpo is on the Milwaukee Bucks injury report ahead of his team’s Monday matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers. The star forward is listed as probable because of a right knee contusion he suffered in Saturday’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets.
Anteokounmpo is stuffing the stat sheet, as usual, this year and is averaging 27.8 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game. The reigning MVP nearly notched a triple-double with 38 points, 18 rebounds, and 9 assists in his last outing and could benefit from a favorable matchup against a Blazers team that’s starting Robert Covington at power forward and lacks quality rim protection because of Enes Kanter’s move into the starting center spot.
While Antetokounmpo is listed as probable, Bobby Portis should be on the radar of fantasy basketball players. Portis is averaging 10.6 points and 7.4 rebounds per contest and could experience a significant stat spike if moved into the starting lineup.
