Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo missed Sunday's game against the Washington Wizards with an illness.
"He's just sick," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said of Antetokounmpo before the game. "Next guy up. We have plenty of guys, so it's the next one up."
Mirza Teletovic was expected to start in place of Antetokounmpo, who is leading the Bucks in most statistical categories with 24 points, 9.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game.
Before Sunday, the 6-foot-11, 222-pound Antetokounmpo played in all 35 games this season and was leading the team at 35.4 minutes per contest.
