Giannis out for game against the Phoenix Suns with knee soreness

Giannis out for game against the Phoenix Suns with knee soreness

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play Wednesday against the Suns because of right knee soreness, coach Jason Kidd said.

There isn't much that The Greek Freak hasn't done this season, as he's in the midst of Year 5 and continuing to climb the pecking order of National Basketball Association stars.

Antetokounmpo, who ranks second in the National Basketball Association in scoring (29.7 points per game), has missed just five games the past three seasons combined.

While Antetokounmpo's 1.9 blocks per contest ranks No. 4 in the National Basketball Association, he's also averaging 10.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.6 steals per night.

Antetokounmpo is averaging 55.8 FanDuel points across 16 games this season.

Antetokounmpo scored 23 points against the Washington Wizards in Milwaukee on Monday and 24 points against the Mavericks in Dallas last Saturday.

Antetokounmpo isn't the only Buck hurting.

The Bucks also say center John Henson will miss the Bucks' game tonight (Wednesday) in Phoenix after undergoing what the Bucks described as "a successful eye procedure" on Tuesday.
