PHOENIX — Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has a minor knee sprain and will miss at least the Milwaukee Bucks' next two games. The team plays the Nuggets in Denver on Monday night. 

The Bucks say Antetokounmpo had an MRI and was examined by team doctor William Raasch. The evaluation showed a minor joint capsule sprain of Antetokounmpo's left knee. 

His status for the Bucks’ home game Thursday against Boston will be determined later. 

Antetokounmpo took a hard fall late in a 113-103 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.
