Antetokounmpo back in Bucks' lineup for his 27th birthday
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo is celebrating his 27th birthday by returning to the Milwaukee Bucks' lineup after a two-game absence.
The two-time MVP is listed among the Bucks' five starters for their Monday night game with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Antetokounmpo had been listed as questionable due to a sore right calf that knocked him out for the previous two games.
The Bucks split the two games Antetokounmpo missed last week.
The Bucks lost 97-93 at Toronto on Thursday to snap an eight-game winning streak. They rebounded at home two nights later by rolling to a 124-102 victory over Miami.
