MILWAUKEE -- The Bucks won't have Giannis Antetokounmpo and several other notable players Friday night when they host the Grizzlies, who can clinch the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference with a victory.
The injury report released Thursday lists Antetokounmpo as out with a sore right knee. Other Bucks unavailable to play are Jrue Holiday (rest); Khris Middleton (sore right knee); Brook Lopez (rest); Grayson Allen (sprained right ankle); and Pat Connaughton (sprained right ankle).
Middleton left the Bulls game after hurting his knee. An injury to his right knee had caused Middleton to miss 19 straight games earlier this season.
Memphis (50-30) has a two-game lead over Sacramento (48-32) for second place in the West with two games left in the regular season, but the Kings own the tiebreaker. Denver took the No. 1 seed in the West on Wednesday.
