Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo missed Friday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls due to a sprained right ankle.

Antetokounmpo aggravated the injury during Thursday’s 143-136 loss to the Houston Rockets when he stepped on the foot of Houston’s Kelly Olynyk 46 seconds into the first quarter. He didn’t return to the game.
