Milwaukee Bucks star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is set to miss Saturday's tilt against the Charlotte Hornets, which will mark his second game missed this season.

This marks the second game this season that he has missed due to the same designation. However, Antetokounmpo has voiced no real concerns about it possibly being a long-term issue, according to ESPN.

“Oh no, I'm definitely not worried,” he said, according to the Journal Sentinel. “Just got to be a little bit cautious about it. That's what my team wants me to do. I think that's the best decision for my knee. Just got to be careful because at the end of the day we're a really good team and we want to make the playoffs, we want to go deep in the playoffs. Personally and the team, we don't want anything happening right now to my knee that's going to affect the team in the long run.”

The 23-year-old has proven to be quite a durable player throughout his career playing at least 77 games in each of his four full seasons. In fact, he is averaging a league-best 38.0 minutes per contest heading into Saturday's contest against the Hornets.

What may help the situation, is that Milwaukee will also likely keep a close eye on the situation moving forward in order to avoid any possible setbacks from occurring. At this point, it is a minor issue that has flared up for just the second time in the last month.

With there being no serious concern stemming from the injury, this was simply the Bucks providing him some extra rest to allow his ailing knee to heal. Antetokounmpo is currently averaging career highs with 29.6 points on 54.2 percent shooting from the field with 10.5 rebounds per game.
