The Milwaukee Bucks said star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play in Monday night’s game against the visiting Indiana Pacers due a left knee sprain.
The league’s two-time reigning Most Valuable Player has missed just one of the Bucks’ 41 games this season, back on Jan. 9.
Antetokounmpo, 26, played 34 minutes in Saturday’s 120-113 victory against the San Antonio Spurs, finishing with 26 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds.
The 2021 All-Star Game MVP is averaging 29.0 points, 11.7 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 40 starts this season.
Monday’s contest is the start of a four-game homestand this week for the Bucks, who return to action Wednesday night against the Boston Celtics.
