The league adjusted the statistics from the Milwaukee-Washington game Sunday night and in turn took back Giannis Antetokounmpos triple-double that he was originally credited with.

The 28-year-old acknowledged on Sunday night that he "kind of stole one", so the reversal did not come as a surprise.
New York Mets left-hander Jose Quintana has suffered a small stress fracture in one of his left ribs. The 34-year-old is traveling back to New York to undergo further testing. There is no established timeline for his return yet.
