Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has been ruled out against the Washington Wizards with right shoulder soreness.

This will be Antetokounmpo’s fourth missed game of the season.

The Bucks have gone 3-0 without him, outscoring their opponents by an average margin of 17.3 points.

Antetokounmpo hasn’t missed more than 10 games in a season since he came into the league in 2013.

Without Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe will have more usage and scoring responsibilities.

Ersan Ilyasova will more than likely get the start and see increased minutes, as he averaged 17.7 points and 13.3 rebounds per game without Antetokounmpo.
