OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks won't have either Giannis Antetokounmpo or Damian Lillard available for their Friday night game with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Bucks released an injury report Friday afternoon that ruled Lillard out with a sore left adductor. The Bucks already had announced Wednesday that Antetokounmpo would miss the rest of the regular season with a strained left calf.

Khris Middleton will be available for Milwaukee after missing the Bucks' victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. The Bucks have been monitoring Middleton's workload after a sprained left ankle caused the three-time All-Star to sit out 16 straight games this season.

This will be the Bucks' ninth game without Lillard and eighth game without Antetokounmpo this season. The Bucks have gone 1-7 without Lillard and 4-3 without Antetokounmpo.
