East Notes: Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bulls, Goran Dragic, Heat


Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks can breathe a sigh of relief, as his right wrist injury isn’t considered serious, per Shams Charania and Eric Nehm of The Athletic.

Instead, it s indeed a sprain, suffered in the Bucks’ win over the Bulls last Thursday. Antetokounmpo did play a couple minutes in the All-Star Game, but that was hardly a game.

Anyway, Antetokounmpo will be able to return once the swelling in his wrist subsides, per Charania and Nehm.

He is averaging a career-high 31.8 points and 12.2 rebounds, as the Bucks entering the post-ASG break at 41-17, a half-game back of the Celtics for first in the Eastern Conference.

  • The Bucks are signing center Meyers Leonard to a 10-day contract, as we relayed here. Leonard worked for the Bucks and Lakers recently, and the Bucks have had him on the radar for at least a year, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
