Giannis Antetokounmpo concernedly leaves court sustaining knee issue during Bucks’ dominating win vs Heat

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo got back from a sprained wrist suffered against the Chicago Bulls before the all-star weekend in the game against the Miami Heat last night.

In the game against the Bulls, the Bucks star left the court with a hand injury and missed his participation in the All-Star Game subsequently. Though the injury was nothing serious, the Bucks didn’t take any risks with their star power forward.

After a week of recovery, Giannis featured on last night’s roster, but the comeback wasn’t pleasant for any party at all.

What happened to Giannis Antetokounmpo last night?

The 28-year-old suffered a right knee injury during the first quarter of the Heat game at Fiserv Forum. Following the injury, the PF felt the pain and left the court to the locker room in the timeout.

However, his absence didn’t dent the team’s performance; the Bucks demonstrated a dominant performance and swept the floor with the opponent. The Bucks clinched their 13th consecutive win of the season following a thundering 128-99 score.

Prior to leaving the game, the Greek freak had four points, four rebounds, and four assists in just six minutes. In the postgame press conference, coach Mike Budenholzer said, “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow. Just evaluate him and take it day-by-day.”

At a similar time last year, Antetokounmpo missed a week due to a hyperextending left knee but came back even stronger later. Furthermore, we have to wait for the test results to know how serious this injury might be.

Is Giannis Antetokounmpo going to repeat his return like last season? What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
