Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the best teams in the NBA out of the break, but they'll have their hands full when they take on Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers on Monday night.

The Bucks have ruled Giannis Antetokounmpo out for the game against the Clippers on Monday night due to left Achilles tendinitis.

Antetokounmpo was initially listed as questionable to play, and came out to warm up ahead of the game. He had to pause his workouts twice to stretch out, according to the Athletic's Eric Nehm. Shortly after resuming, Antetokounmpo cut his workout completely short and would not return to warm up.

Milwaukee Bucks head coach Doc Rivers ruled Giannis Antetokounmpo out of the game against his former team in the LA Clippers.

The Bucks have a record of 40-21 in their first 61 games of the season. They're currently the second seed in the Eastern Conference, sitting 8.5 games behind first place Boston Celtics and holding a half-game lead over the third seed Cleveland Cavaliers

Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers, meanwhile, have won two straight games and come into the game with a record of 39-20.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has played in 59 of the Bucks 61 games heading into tonight's matchup against the LA Clippers. 30.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 block per game on 61.9 percent shooting from the field.

It's unclear how serious the injury to Antetokounmpo is given how sensitive the Achilles area can be. He was listed as questionable and did try to warm up, which was a good sign, but will likely need a few more days of rest before he's able to return to the court the way he would like to.

With tonight's game against Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers being his third missed game of the season, Giannis Antetokounmpo is allowed to miss 14 more before he's no longer eligible for end-of-season NBA awards like MVP, All-NBA, etc.
