Giannis Antetokounmpo revealed he will have more playing time for the Milwaukee Bucks this season.

Antetokounmpo, who averaged 30.4 minutes last season, said he has already discussed that with head coach Mike Budenholzer. He also noted he will be ready to play 45 minutes in the coming months, if he has to.

Antetokounmpo played 36 minutes in the opening game of the season against the Boston Celtics, posting 35 points and 13 rebounds.

However, he missed the game-tying free throw and the Celtics survived the late thriller against the Bucks (121-122).
