Budenholzer also said that no decision has been made on whether Antetokounmpo will play against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.

Bucks guard Junior Holiday (sprained right ankle) and forward Bobby Portis (injured right quadriceps) are expected to play Monday after being listed as probables. Bucks forward Khris Middleton (sore right knee) will miss 16 straight games, and forward Joe Ingles (naughty left knee) is also out.

The Pacers, for their part, will be without their leading scorer and NBA leader, Tyrese Halliburton, for the third straight game due to a left elbow sprain and a slight bone bruise in his left knee.
