Raptors star Kawhi Leonard also will sit as part of his rest strategy on the second game of a back-to-back.

While Giannis did pass he in-game neurological testing that allowed him to return, concussions are not linear and can pop up while after the inciting incident. Antetokounmpo complained of a lingering headache on Monday and entered National Basketball Association concussion protocol, according to a team statement.

The Raptors and Bucks enter the game with 6-0 records.

Khris Middleton had 18 points and seven rebounds, Malcolm Brogdon scored 16 points and Donte DiVincenzo added 15 points off the bench for the Bucks, who shot 50 percent from the floor and outrebounded the Magic, 57-42.

The Bucks, who lead the National Basketball Association with a 66.8 point first-half scoring average, stretched the lead to 14 after a steal and step-back jumper by Eric Bledsoe with 3:18 to go in the second quarter en route to a 65-51 halftime lead.
