Giannis Antetokounmpo led his herd to a 118-108 blowout win over the Magic on Saturday with his 25 points (10-of-17 shooting), 13 boards, five dimes, one triple and two steals.
Giannis's stellar performance was slightly tainted by his going 4-for-6 from the line and his five turnovers on the night. That said, owners have learned to accept his deficiencies and ride his superlative contributions in other departments. He's a top-10 stud in 9-cat on the season and still has the ability to rise should he go on a run of droppig massive lines.

Giannis Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks in Wednesday's road win with 27 points (10-for-14 FG, 7-for-8 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks.
The Bucks built up a big lead in the third quarter and GA only needed 22 minutes to drop this full line. It meant that he was really the only one to escape with a big line out of the usual suspects. Eric Bledsoe had 16 points, four dimes, three steals and a pair of threes while Malcolm Brogdon went 9-6-4 and Khris Middleton had just 11-6-5.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad, left hip) started Tuesday's 124-86 win over the Heat, scoring 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting (4-of-8 FTs) with 10 rebounds, 10 assists and three steals over 25 minutes.
There was nothing to glean in this game but it's good to see Giannis back on the floor, of course. The box score was fairly normal despite the low minute totals and massive win, with Eric Bledsoe standing out with 17 points, five boards, four assists and five cash counters in the win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad, left hip) is in the starting lineup on Tuesday after initially being listed as probable.
Antetokounmpo is coming off a 33-point game on Sunday so it's no surprise that he's ready to go tonight. If you were worried that he might be a surprise inactive, put those fears to rest.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad soreness, left hip contusion) is probable ahead of Tuesday's game.
Giannis was able to drop 33 points in Sunday's win after sitting out on Friday so he's fairly safe to set into lineups this week. The Bucks have downgraded him from probable to doubtful to out already this year so you'll want to check back tomorrow just to be sure.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (quad, hip) returned from a one-game absence with a line of 33 points, six boards, four dimes, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in Sunday's win.
Giannis missed the previous game, but returned to his usual form in this one. Ersan Ilyasova returned to the bench with Giannis' return. This was the first game all season that Giannis has not recorded at least seven rebounds, but that's more of a testament to his stellar play rather than a knock on this game. He's an elite fantasy asset.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (quad, hip) will play in Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.
The Greek Freak missed the Bucks' last game but it looks like he'll return on Sunday which is of course good news for his owners. With him back, Ersan Ilyasova should return to the bench.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is probable to play on Sunday after sitting out on Friday with a sore right quad and left hip contusion.
Antetokounmpo was listed as probable on Thursday but ended up sitting against the Wizards, so hopefully that doesn't happen again tomorrow. Ersan Ilyasova figures to move back to the bench whenever the Greek Freak is good to go.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore right quad, left hip contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards.
If you have another option in daily leagues you can make that move now. It’s likely just a maintenance day for Giannis as his services shouldn’t be needed against the lowly Wizards. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe (sore left hamstring, playing) should get the largest boosts in usage. Donte DiVincenzo (right ankle, left heel) will join Giannis on the sidelines.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's game against the Wizards
It looks like something unexpected HAS happened, because Antetokounmpo is now in line to miss this contest. This shouldn't cause much further missed time as he was probable just yesterday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore right quad, left hip contusion) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Wizards.
Unless something unexpected happens, he should be just fine for this game. He's neck-and-neck for the MVP right now with James Harden and is an elite fantasy asset.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had an MVP-like performance in a win over James Harden and the Rockets on Wedesday as he had 27 points and 21 rebounds in 37 minutes.
He added five assists and shot 8-of-16 from the field and 11-of-14 from the line. He is in competition with James Harden for MVP as of right now and a win and performance like this one might give him a slight edge. Owners do not have too much to complain about The Greek Freak other than his lack of 3-pointers and sub-par free throw percentage.

Giannis Antetokounmpo fouled out in Monday's game vs. the Jazz but left his mark on the box score before hitting the showers with 30 points on 13-of-30 shooting, adding two assists, a steal and two blocks in 35 minutes.
The Greek Freak did some damage but his line was not as jazzed up as it seemed, with him shooting .433 from the field and going 4-for-6 from the line. Still, we love those cash counters and the double-double, so there won't be too many complaints from his owners after tonight.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was a one-man army in Saturday's 116-123 loss to the Raptors, going 16-of-25 from the field for 43 points while adding 18 rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Antetokounmpo also came through with an 8-of-11 mark from the charity stripe, and between that and the threes it's a pretty great night despite zero blocks. The Greek Freak is surprisingly only 15 percent from behind the arc this season and it's one of the small complaints about his otherwise-elite fantasy output. Obviously he's a stud but it's the one thing holding him back from really gunning for the top spots in the fantasy rankings. If Antetokounmpo can start knocking down triples at even an average rate, it'd spell major danger for everyone else.

Giannis Antetokounmpo went thermonuclear on the Nets and the stat sheet on Saturday, dropping one of his fattest lines of the season with 31 points on 13-of-17 shooting, adding 10 rebounds, 10 dimes, two 3-pointers, two steals and three blocks.
This was an epic performance considering he was "probable" coming into this game with a sore left foot. He's been scorching hot lately and quickly climbing up the rankings towards that top-5 zone (currently ninth) in 9-cat.
