Giannis Antetokounmpo to miss Tuesday night's game vs. Washington


Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play tonight against the Washington Wizards due to a right shoulder injury and soreness, according to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Antetokounmpo had 30 points, 16 rebounds, and six assists in the Bucks' win over the Hornets on Friday in Paris, France.

Milwaukee hasn't played Washington since the preseason. Tuesday night marks the first of three regular-season contests between the squads.

Entering Tuesday, Milwaukee had a record of 40-6, good for the NBA's best record. Washington is 15-30, but only four games out of a playoff spot.

Milwaukee hosts Denver on Friday and Phoenix on Sunday before hitting the road.
