Giannis Antetokounmpo scored two points on 1-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes off the bench on Friday.
This stinker comes with Ersan Ilyasova out and O.J. Mayo getting ejected after just three minutes on the floor, not that the latter issue really matters. Alphabet has grown quiet after a surge about a week ago and he has fallen into a low-end stash status for the chance the Bucks release him into the wild.
Pau Gasol (ankle) had a precautionary X-ray during Friday's game against the Nuggets.

He also had his left ankle re-taped before making it back into the back. Gasol didn't seem bothered by his tweak and he was able to get 30 minutes of action in the loss. He finished with a nice line of 27 points, five boards, one assist and one steal on 12-of-21 from the field.
Klay Thompson (lower back strain) will not return to Friday's game.

The team is saying it's a precaution to hold him out, but it certainly didn't look like it. Thompson could barely even make it to the locker room without pain and was hunched over in the tunnel before finally make it back there. He has not missed a game in his career, but he might need to sit out on Sunday vs. the Suns. Harrison Barnes and Jordan Crawford would get more playing time sans Klay.
