We’ve all heard and become familiar with the term “load management” by now. And with the length of a NBA season combined with the ever-increasing demand of its star athletes, it’s no surprise that teams are more and more frequently putting their big names out of games that largely are inconsequential. However, news today on Giannis could mean things are maybe more serious than just a day of load management.
The Greek Freak hasn’t played in three games heading into tonight’s contest against the Hornets, and now he’ll be missing a fourth straight game with what the team is calling left knee soreness. Joining Giannis on the injury list, according to Hornets’ beat writer Rick Bonnell, is Jrue Holiday with a left knee contusion.
Giannis hasn’t played since April 2nd against the Trailblazers, where he scored 47. He’s played in 46 of the Bucks’ 51 games this season.
