Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo missed Sunday's 109-94 series-opening win against the Indiana Pacers due to a calf strain.

Head coach Doc Rivers isn't sure when Antetokounmpo is returning, but he told reporters, including Dustin Dopriak of The Indianapolis Star, that the two-time MVP looks better.

Antetokounmpo missed the last three games of the regular season after sustaining the non-contact injury April 9 against the Boston Celtics. Milwaukee went 1-2 during his absence.

Antetokounmpo averaged 30.4 points, 11.5 boards, and 6.5 assists across 73 appearances this season.
