The Greek forward was surprisingly omitted from the Bucks squad and Kidd tried to give an explanation over this decision.
However, Kidd failed to give a proper answer as he did not clarify whether this was a tactical decision or a disciplinary action.
“It's not the first time that a player stays out of a game. It has happened with Khris Middleton before. His teammates were not left surprised seeing Antetokounmpo dropped. It was a decision taken by the coach. Giannis is a member of our squad. When a player is dropped the coach does not have to reveal whether he wanted to rest him or it is down to disciplinary reasons. We work as a team,” Kidd underlined.
