Giannis Antetokounmpo has now missed 5 of the Bucks’ last 10 games with left knee soreness.

Giannis Antetokounmpo sat out his third consecutive due to soreness in his left knee. He was as doubtful leading up to the Bucks-Mavs showdown, which Milwaukee lost 116-101.

The Bucks ruled out the two-time reigning NBA MVP about 90 minutes before tipoff at American Airlines Center. Coach Mike Budenholzer said Antetokounmpo didn’t do any pregame work and didn’t indicate when the five-time All-Star would return.

Milwaukee concluded a six-game, 11-day road trip with a physically taxing loss in Dallas.

In 45 games this season, Antetokounmpo has averaged 28.8 points, 11.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists.
