Giannis Antetokounmpo sits vs. Cavs with shoulder injury

Giannis Antetokounmpo, the standout player for the Milwaukee Bucks, was unable to play in Wednesday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers because he suffered a bruise to his right shoulder.

 Antetokounmpo, who has been averaging 31.2 points and 11.4 rebounds so far this season, was not included on the official injury report 

until two hours before the game against the Cavaliers, who have already won six games in a row. In addition, the seven-time All-Star was listed as an injured player 

before to Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings; nonetheless, he was able to play and score 27 points in Milwaukee's victory against Sacramento, 

which was 143-142 in overtime. Antetokounmpo, who is 29 years old, has participated in 29 games in a row, which was his longest stretch since he featured in 31 games in a row during the 2020-21 season.

 It does not appear like he will be absent for a significant amount of time. Despite the fact that Antetokounmpo was not available,

 the Bucks were able to get forward Jae Crowder back. Crowder had been sidelined since November 11 due to a ruptured adductor muscle. 

In his return, Crowder played 19 minutes and finished with 15 points, 1 rebound, and 1 steal all in all.
