Giannis Antetokounmpo to play vs. Spurs after missing game with ankle sprain

Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo will return to the starting lineup Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs after missing Milwaukee's most recent game because of a sprained right ankle.

Antetokounmpo, the Bucks' leading scorer and rebounder, suffered the injury in Wednesday's loss to the LA Clippers and missed Friday's victory over the Chicago Bulls. The All-Star forward had been considered questionable for Sunday afternoon's game in Milwaukee.

The 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.3 points and 10.0 rebounds per game for the Bucks (38-34), who enter Sunday in the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference, a half-game behind the seventh-place Miami Heat (39-34).
