It’s funny how this team and this fan base perceive 3-point specialists.

In the 2018-19 NBA, it’s almost a virtual requirement that if you’re on the court, you can at least pose a threat from the 3-point line.

He's officially been cleared for Wednesday's exhibition opener and will take on his typical spot in the top unit. That said, those playing preseason DFS may want to keep in mind the fact that Antetokounmpo could have some restrictions considering the game doesn't mean anything and the Bucks likely don't want to risk any sort of aggravation.
