Q  How do you spell Antetokounmpo? Nate Wolters: Oh, I still have no clue. You want me to give it a try? A-n-t-e-(pause)-k-o-u-n-p-o? Well, it’s tough. I know how to say it. I don’t know how to spell it yet. Q How freakish is the Greek Freak? Nate Wolters:  He’s really good. He has gotten a ton better since last year. Just with his length, there are not too many guys who can do what he does. He handles it like a guard. He’s a really good passer. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Babcock said the Bucks should have an intriguing summer league team in Las Vegas. The plan is for second-year players Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nate Wolters to play on the squad, and the Bucks' draft picks also should be there. "In the summer, you can put them (Antetokounmpo and Wolters) in positions they weren't in last year," Babcock said. "Giannis can be the focal point of the offense, and Nate can run the show. It's a lot different." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Nate Wolters' injury suffered Thursday night against Golden State will have a short-term impact on the Milwaukee Bucks. Only 13 games remain in a season destined to be the worst in franchise history. If the 6-foot-4 rookie guard returns from his fractured left hand before the season ends April 16, it will be a nice story. But the real feel-good story has played out over the last five months as the St. Cloud, Minn., native has proved he belongs in coach Larry Drew's rotation. Wolters appeared in his 58th game and made his 31st start Thursday at Oracle Arena as the Bucks dropped a 115-110 decision to the Warriors. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Matthews then stole a pass by Nate Wolters, found Lillard with an around-the-back transition pass to set up a Lillard dunk with 2:12 left, then added a three-pointer with 1:17 left that put Portland up 112-105. From there, the Blazers hung on by making free throws to seal a win they could not afford to let slip away. “You know what, tonight we’re happy with the win,” Matthews said. “We’re always going to take a win — ugly, pretty, it doesn’t matter — but we’re not happy with the way that we played.” Oregonian

Wolters was relied on heavily in the first few weeks of the season and started seven games when both Knight and Ridnour were injured. But the 6-foot-4 guard understands his playing time will not always be steady. "You've just got to be ready every game, whether you're going to play a lot or not play a lot," Wolters said. "You never know in this league, especially with our team the way the injuries have been. "It's a little tough not knowing how many minutes you'll play but something you've got to deal with."

Drew said he wasn't sure yet if Wolters would be a D-League candidate later in the season. "He's a workaholic," Drew said. "We're going to have to kick him out of the gym someday. He's there at night; he's there early in the mornings. He's going to have to learn how to pace himself playing at this level. It just shows you how bad he wants it." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
