Bucks Get More Bad News About Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Health

The Milwaukee Bucks’ cursed NBA season suffered another blow this week when they got some bad injury news regarding team star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Antetokounmpo suffered a non-contact calf injury during an April 10 showdown versus the Boston Celtics.

This past week, NBA insider Shams Charania provided some insight on when Milwaukee can expect its best player back.

The prognosis does not sound good.

“I’m told this injury could be anywhere from 2-4 weeks, potentially. We know his superhuman ability, but that clearly puts his status for this series in jeopardy,” Charania said.

“The Bucks, Giannis, they also have to have some level of caution in being careful with this calf injury. Already this season Giannis has had Achilles tendonitis, a hamstring injury and now this calf strain about a week ago.

“The last thing the Bucks and Giannis would want is for him to get back and rush on the floor with a calf injury, not being 100% and then potentially tweaking that or leading to even worse injuries.”

This has been a really rough year for the Bucks already, and Antetokounmpo’s injury is just the latest blow.

Will the Bucks be able to beat the Pacers without Antetokounmpo leading the way? Time will tell.
