Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is back in the lineup for the Milwaukee Bucks' game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night.

Antetokounmpo has been dealing with a quadriceps injury.

The team announced late Friday afternoon that Antetokounmpo would play after he missed Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.9 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists in 24 games entering Friday.

The Bucks (22-3) enter the contest with a 16-game winning streak, four shy of the club mark set during the 1970-71 season.
