Giannis Antetokounmpo    G/F  Bucks

 

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo made his 2017 preseason debut on Friday with 24 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes. After missing EuroBasket for a knee issue, we got our first look at what should be an even better offensive version of the Greek Freak. His jumper looked extra silky in this game and he was shooting off the bounce with confidence (example in video below). Even just the threat of Antetokounmpo being an average shooter should make him even better around the basket, which could put him in elite territory on efficiency for high-volume guys. The 22-year-old All-Star's upside can't be seen with the naked eye.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) will make his preseason debut Friday vs. the Bulls. Antetokounmpo missed the Bucks first two preseason games, as he was away from the team due to the death of his father. Coach Jason Kidd said that Giannis would likely play fewer than 20 minutes. The sky is the limit for Antetokounmpo this season. Just 22 years old, he led the Bucks in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks in 2016-17. A strong case could be made for him as the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts this year.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday. He went through his normal pregame warmup before this game, but coach Jason Kidd will hold him out. Antetokounmpo was away from the team due to the passing of his father, so it's great to see he is on the right track to get back on the court. He should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Bulls.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) was back at practice on Wednesday. Antetokounmpo recently took some time away from the team due to the passing of his father, but him going through Wednesday morning's shootaround suggests that his preseason debut should be right around the corner. The Greek Freak should only continue to get better during his age-23 season, so you could easily justify taking him No. 1 overall on draft day.

Coach Jason Kidd said there is no timetable for Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) to return to the team following the death of his father. Obviously, the Bucks will give their young superstar all the time he needs to grieve. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Antetokounmpo family. Sterling Brown started in place of Giannis in the Bucks preseason game on Monday night and was scoreless (0-9) in 27 minutes.
