    MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo is the latest NBA star to be sidelined by COVID-19.

    The league's injury report on Tuesday night (Wednesday, Manila time) listed the two-time MVP as out for the Milwaukee Bucks' game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday because he's in the health and safety protocols.

    Milwaukee's Wesley Matthews also has entered the COVID-19 protocols and won't play Wednesday.

    Antetokounmpo played Sunday at New York and Monday at Boston. He had a triple-double in the victory over the Knicks and scored 20 points in the loss to the Celtics.

    He's averaging 27 points, 11.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists this season.
