The Bucks and Raptors are set to face off on Tuesday the second night of a back-to-back for both teams.
Both teams played on Martin Luther King Jr. Day as part of the NBA’s holiday celebration.
The Raptors picked up a gritty overtime win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, while the Bucks earned a hard-fought win over the Pacers despite the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo has missed the Bucks’ last three games with left knee soreness and Milwaukee has stalled a bit as a result, going 1-2 over that span.
Milwaukee has lost eight of its last 14 games and will look to get back on track against a Toronto squad that has suddenly won four of its last five games.
Will Antetokounmpo be available for the showdown against the Raptors on Tuesday? The Sporting News has the latest news on the All-Star forward’s injury status below.

Is Giannis Antetokounmpo playing vs. Raptors?
Antetokounmpo missed Monday’s contest against the Pacers with left knee soreness. He’s also been ruled out of Tuesday’s game against the Raptors.
As The Athletic’s Eric Nehm mentioned, missing Tuesday’s game will give Antetokounmpo a full 10 days off to recover because the Bucks don’t suit up again until Saturday, Jan. 21.
