    Giannis Antetokounmpo triple-doubled in Monday's 111-98 win over the Bulls with 28 points (12-for-20 FGs), 14 rebounds, 10 assists, a steal, a block and a three, but he struggled from the free throw line again, hitting just 3-of-9.

    Giannis may be on pace for his second MVP award, but unless he's on a punt-free throw team, he's certainly not the fantasy MVP to those that roster him. The free throw percentage is almost impossible to overcome, as it's about twice as harmful to fantasy teams as the next-worst free throw shooter (after accounting for volume). It's worth seeing what you could get for him based on name recognition in case some of your competition isn't aware of just how bad he's gotten in this category.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points in Saturday's 117-97 win over the Nets, chipping in 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal and eight turnovers.

    Antetokounmpo shot the ball efficiently in this one with 12-of-20 shooting and was not needed much in the fourth quarter as the Bucks pulled away handily. The eight turnovers were a real letdown in what was a modest defensive night for the Greek Freak.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists in Thursday's win over the Celtics.

    Antetokounmpo was 11-of-22 from the floor but a dismal 10-of-20 from the free throw line. The free throw percentage was trending up recently but this is a huge step back on that front. If the free throws aren't a killer for your strategy, GA has one of the best fantasy skillsets we've ever seen.

    The Bucks throttled the Knicks by a 128-102 score on Tuesday night, led by Giannis Antetokounmpo's 37 points (12-for-17 FG, 3-for-5 3PT, 10-of-12 FT), nine rebounds four assists and a block in just 21 minutes.

    The Knickerbockers never stood a chance. This is the best of all worlds for GA's fantasy GMs — he put up a huge game, hit his threes and knocked down his freebies at a great clip, all while getting basically a half-night off. Khris Middleton added 17 points (6-of-9 FG), three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes though most of the other Bucks weren't needed for much in a blowout win.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the Blazers on Saturday with 32 points (13-of-23 from the floor), 17 rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes.

    Antetokounmpo bounced back after only scoring 13 points on Friday and continues to be a first-round stud. He shot 4-of-7 from the line, but you deal with the poor free throw percentage and love everything else about his fantasy game.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo contributed 13 points (4-for-9 shooting), 10 rebounds, five assists, a triple and a steal in Friday's win over the Kings.

    Antetokounmpo fought off some back soreness to still come up with a solid double-double. The minutes were low because this was another blowout for the Bucks, and he missed four free throws but these are really the only blemishes on the Greek Freak's outstanding fantasy profile.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) will play on Friday against the Kings.

    As expected. Roll the Greek Freak out there with confidence against the Kings' lousy frontcourt. He will have plenty of opportunities to attack the rim tonight. The only concern would be if this turns into a blowout too quickly.

    Ersan Ilyasova is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings with a knee injury.

    Ilyasova pops up on the injury report with a knee issue after a few quiet games of production. It's not clear if hell actually miss any time but he's not a fantasy asset in most leagues when Giannis is healthy.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is probable for Friday's game against the Kings with back soreness.

    Antetokounmpo should be good to go for this contest on Friday, but this is just something to monitor in the lead up to the game. If he is unavailable, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe will need to lead from the front.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo struggled from deep on Wednesday, but still picked up 30 points (10-21 FGs, 1-of-7 from deep, 9-of-13 FTs), 12 rebounds, four assists and a steal.

    Giannis has been stringing together some really strong performances and despite returning second-round value on the year, he has been a top-10 player in the last two weeks. If he can pick it up from the line and limit the turnovers, he'll be a top-10 player on the season in no time.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is probable to face the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Antetokounmpo had another full line when playing through the injury on Monday so you can fire him up for a cake matchup with the husk of Golden State.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) missed all five of his 3-point attempts but was otherwise great with 24 points (10-of-22 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), 12 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes in a 104-126 loss to the Spurs on Monday.

    Antetokounmpo sinking all four of his free throws and turning the ball over just twice continues a trend of him improving his production in his two poor categories. If he didn't cause so many blowout games, Giannis would likely be posting numbers inside the top-5 these days.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) has been cleared to play on Monday.

    Antetokounmpo was probable at first so this is no surprise. Get him in your lineups.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is being listed as probable for Monday's game versus the Spurs.

    Antetokounmpo played in the last game so the back soreness is nothing serious, but it it's even more of a reason for the Bucks to rest their star during blowouts.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in 29 minutes of action in Saturday's 127-118 win over the Spurs, chipping in eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Though he did not register his usual volume of boards, assists, or defensive stats it was still a quality game for him as he got the charity stripe 18 times, converting 15 of them. Antetokounmpo is shooting 60 percent from the line this season which is exasperated by the fact that he takes over 10 a game. With a modification based on volume, he has the most detrimental free throw contribution than any other player in the league. Tonight's hot shooting from the line should give fantasy owners hope that he can turn his season-low shooting around and regress to his career average of around 70 percent.
