Antetokounmpo to sit out for the second consecutive game on Wednesday

Giannis Antetokounmpo will be sitting out his second consecutive game on Wednesday when the Milwaukee Bucks take on the NBA-leading Boston Celtics. The Bucks announced earlier in the day that the two-time MVP would be sidelined due to a left hamstring issue.

This will be the fifth game that Antetokounmpo has missed this season, with the Bucks having won three out of four games without him so far. The star player is currently ranked third in the NBA in scoring, sixth in rebounding, and 15th in assists.

The game between the Celtics and Bucks on Wednesday marks the third meeting between the two teams this season. The Celtics secured a victory in Boston on November 22, while the Bucks claimed a win in Milwaukee on January 11. They are set to face each other again on April 9 in Milwaukee.

With a 10-game lead over the Bucks in the Eastern Conference standings, the Celtics are in a strong position entering the matchup on Wednesday night. It will be interesting to see how the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo impacts the game and if the Bucks can secure a win against the league leaders.
