Giannis Antetokounmpo and Wesley Matthews are both out of Wednesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols, ESPN reported Tuesday. Players typically enter protocols when they test positive for COVID-19 or come into close contact with someone who has.
Once in the protocols, players cannot return to play until they have isolated for 10 days or returned two negative test results at least 24 hours apart.
Antetokounmpo is averaging 27 points per game, tied for second in the league, and scored a triple-double against the Knicks on Sunday.
Two Chicago Bulls games have been postponed due to player quarantines, and seven members of the Brooklyn Nets entered protocols Tuesday.
The Bucks also said Khris Middleton is questionable due to a hyperextended left knee.
