After Tuesday, the Bucks don’t play again until Saturday’s road game vs. the Cavaliers. As relayed by Eric Nehm of The Athletic, Antetokounmpo will have sat out 10 straight days by then — so resting the injury against the Pacers may have been the plan all along.

Antetokounmpo, 28, is averaging a career-high 31.0 points, 11.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists, shooting 52 percent from the field, in 35 games.

The Bucks (28-16) are currently in first place in the Central Division and tied with the Nets for second in the Eastern Conference, 4.5 games behind the Celtics. They are also just a half-game ahead of both the 76ers and Cavaliers in the East race.
