Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo missed Monday night's game due to some last minute dental surgery. He missed most of Tuesday's game too after he was ejected in the second quarter.
The Greek Freak got into it with Washington Wizards big man Moritz Wagner after he was called for an offensive foul. Antetokounmpo then decided to headbutt Wagner and was ejected.

Antetokounmpo's absence didn't matter in the end. The Bucks beat the Wizards 126-113, because the Wizards are terrible and shouldn't have been invited to the bubble.
It should be interesting to see if the NBA decides to suspend Giannis for the headbutt. They like to pick and choose their responses to things based on what's good for business.
As for the headbutt itself, it's a clear sign the bubble life is getting to Giannis.
