Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes
A calf injury has Giannis Antetokounmpo showing up on the injury report for the Bucks on Sunday. He's experiencing left calf tightness but coach Mike Budenholser says he's OK. "I think he's going to be fine. The sports performance group's doing a great job with him. He's done a great job. I think he's in a good place." It should be all systems go for Giannis in Sunday's Game 3 but it will be worth keeping an eye on in case it becomes worse or aggravated during a game.
Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
An MRI revealed a bone bruise in Trae Young's right foot. The diagnosis changed as the Hawks said it was an ankle issue on Sunday. Trae will be listed as questionable for Game 4 but he's likely closer to probable -- he has already said that he plans to play even though it affected his speed of play in Game 3.
