Giannis Antetokounmpo out vs. Hornets with right knee soreness

While the missed game marks his second in just over a month with the same injury designation, Antetokounmpo says he doesn't have any apprehensions about the long-term health of his knee.

With Antetokounmpo out, the Bucks will go with a starting lineup of Eric Bledsoe, Matthew Dellavedova, Tony Snell, Khris Middleton and John Henson.

Antetokounmpo played 36 1/2 minutes on Friday in the first matchup between these two teams, scoring 26 points, grabbing seven rebounds and dishing five assists in a 109-104 Bucks win at the Bradley Center.

Over his 29 appearances this season, Antetokounmpo's logged a league-leading 38.0 minutes per game, though he has never voiced any issue with his playing time.

Charlotte's Kemba Walker (head) and Dwight Howard (dislocated finger) are both game-time decisions for Saturday's game.
