With Antetokounmpo out, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday will be called on to step up their scoring.
“Khris, Jrue have an ability to take a heavy load and play big minutes,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said.
For the Hawks, who will play without their star Trae Young, the preparation is much the same.
“We prepare for Milwaukee,” Hawks coach Nate McMillan said. “Of course Giannis is not in the game, but they’ve played without him before. Still a really good team.”
