Kristaps Porzingis is probable to play on Friday against the Bucks despite an ankle injury. Porzingis popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury after his first game back, but it looks like it won't keep him out of Friday's game. In his season debut, he scored 16 points, including four 3-pointers with four rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 7-of-15 shots, two 3-pointers and 6-of-10 free throws on his way to 22 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, three blocks and five turnovers in Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Pistons. This was his second triple-double of the season and it's a textbook example of a Giannis stat line, as it was filled with goodies along with some poor free throw shooting. But that's what he does and if you drafted him in fantasy, you simply have to ignore the free throw shooting and enjoy the rest of the Giannis experience.
