(WNFL) - The N-B-A's youngest player turned 19 today. That's Milwaukee Bucks' rookie forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. (yah-niss an-teh-toe-koom'-po). He's getting more playing time than expected due to a rash of injuries. That's the part he likes. What he doesn't like is that his family is back home in his native Greece -- although efforts are being made to bring his mother, father, and two younger brothers to America. Antetokounmpo says he's a little sad but quote, "What can I do?" He said the first month away from home was very hard for him -- and he tries calling them every day. Meanwhile, he says he's excited about the extra playing time he's getting. Antetokounmpo played almost 30 minutes in two of the Bucks' last three games. He had six points, six rebounds, four assists, and three blocked shots in Wednesday night's Milwaukee home loss to Detroit.
