Giannis Antetokounmpo won’t be available for the Milwaukee Bucks’ preseason opener vs. the Memphis Grizzlies. The 2021 Finals MVP is out with left knee soreness.

At the same time, Khris Middleton will also miss the preseason opener among many other players. Giannis had hyperextended his left knee during Game 4 of the 2021 Eastern Conference Finals.

Khris Middleton followed Team USA to Tokyo, after the end of the NBA Finals in July, having a lot of games under his belt during the last one and a half year.

However, fans will be able to see the 2020 Olympics Gold medal winner Jrue Holiday in action. On the other side, Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr, Steven Adams will take on the court for the Grizzlies.
