Antetokounmpo played against the Hornets in Milwaukee on Friday night and had 26 points and seven rebounds while playing 36 ½ minutes in Milwaukee's 109-104 victory. But Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd said Antetokounmpo developed soreness in the knee after the game and wouldn't be able to play on the second night of a back-to-back.
Antetokounmpo enters the game second in the NBA in scoring, averaging 29.6 points per game.
Matthew Dellavedova will get the start for the Bucks.
