Last season’s MVP also missed Monday’s game against Sacramento.
Milwaukee has the NBA’s best record, 46-7, and has won all five games its All-Star forward has missed this season. After playing at Indiana on Wednesday, the Bucks will have an eight-day break between games. Antetokounmpo will be a team captain at this weekend’s All-Star Game.
Antetokounmpo is averaging 30 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists.
The Bucks won each of their first two games against the Pacers this season.
