Bucks to sit Giannis tonight vs. Lakers; no LeBron either

Giannis Antetokounmpo will sit for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Sterling Brown, Pau Gasol, and Donte DiVincenzo will also not play, nor will injured guard Malcolm Brogdon, who is out for 6-8 weeks.

That's the announcement from the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, as Milwaukee gets set to take on L.A. tonight at Fiserv Forum.

For fans hoping to catch a glimpse of LeBron James... well, he's out too, according to the Lakers, due to injury.

Los Angeles is all but eliminated from playoff contention, while the Bucks have a small lead for the top seed in the Eastern Conference with games coming up against Miami and two against Cleveland in the next couple of weeks.
