  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Officially ruled out

    Antetokounmpo (calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Pacers.

    As expected, Antetokounmpo has been downgraded from doubtful to out while he continues to recover from a left soleus strain. Without their star player, the Bucks were able to win Game 1 behind a stellar first-half performance from Damian Lillard, affording Antetokounmpo some extra rest, but if Milwaukee drops Game 2 at home, there may be added pressure for the MVP candidate to return Friday, when the series shifts to Indiana for Game 3.

  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Tagged as doubtful

    Antetokounmpo (calf) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's Game 2 against Indiana.

    Antetokounmpo's left Soleus strain appears on track to keep him sidelined for Game 2, although Milwaukee can breathe a huge sigh of relief after controlling Game 1 at home. Antetokounmpo suffering a calf-related setback would be a worst-case scenario for the Bucks, so proceeding with caution appears likely, but his status will still need to be monitored until he is officially ruled out.

  • Bucks' Bobby Portis: Double-doubles in start

    Portis posted 15 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes before fouling out of Sunday's 109-94 victory over the Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

    Portis remained in the starting lineup for Game 1, filling the vacant spot left by Giannis Antetkounmpo (calf). While he is certainly not a like-for-like replacement, Portis is more than capable of producing, especially on the offensive end. With Antetokounmpo likely to miss at least another game, Portis should continue to serve as the second or third option on offense for the time being.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Vintage performance Sunday

    Middleton had 23 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and one block across 35 minutes during Sunday's 109-94 win over the Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

    Middleton turned back the clock in the win, shouldering the bulk of the scoring during the second half. After Damian Lillard took over in the first half, it was Middleton who made several clutch shots to secure the victory. Milwaukee will need him to maintain his aggression as they look to negate the loss of Giannis Antetokounmpo (calf).

  • Bucks' Damian Lillard: Catches fire in Game 1 victory

    Lillard finished with 35 points (11-24 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes during Sunday's 109-94 victory over Indiana in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

    Lillard scored all of his team-high 35 points in the first half, the most ever through two quarters by a Bucks player in playoff history. Although he failed to score in the second half, the damage was done, leading his team to an emphatic Game 1 victory. With Giannis Antetokounmpo likely to miss at least another game, Lillard will need to come out firing again Tuesday if the Bucks are to secure a 2-0 series lead.

  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Will not play Sunday

    Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on NBA Countdown that Antetokounmpo (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's Game 1 against Indiana.

    Antetokounmpo had previously been listed as doubtful, so the 29-year-old being downgraded to unavailable is the expected outcome as he continues nursing a left calf strain. Antetokounmpo's situation is precarious because of the interconnected nature of the calf muscle and Achilles tendon, but his status moving forward could be partially dictated by how Milwaukee fares on a game-to-game basis. Game 2 is set for Tuesday night.

  • Bucks' AJ Green: Doesn't appear on injury report

    Green (ankle) is not in the official injury report for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Green didn't play in Milwaukee's final two games of the regular season due to an ankle injury, but he seems to have recovered enough to feature in the playoff opener Sunday. Green averaged 15.2 minutes per game over his final 14 regular-season appearances.

  • Bucks' Damian Lillard: Not listed on injury report

    Lillard (adductor) is not in the official injury report for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    The Bucks are listing Giannis Antetokounmpo (calf) as doubtful for the series opener. However, there's no mention of Lillard, and given he practiced Friday with no problems after resting the previous two days, he should be able to handle his regular workload. Lillard averaged 24.3 points, 7.0 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game during the regular season, and his usage rate should increase considerably in the playoffs as long as Antetokounmpo remains out.

  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Listed doubtful for Game 1

    Antetokounmpo (calf) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Pacers, Jeremiah Johnson of Bally Sports Indiana reports.

    This is not a surprise, as the chances of Antetokounmpo playing in the series opener Sunday are looking slimmer by the minute. This means Bobby Portis should be in line to play a prominent role again. If Antetokounmpo is ruled out, his next chance to suit up would come Tuesday. Antetokounmpo suffered the left calf strain versus the Celtics on April 9 and was given an optimistic recovery timeline of 1-to-2 weeks.
