Milwaukee Bucks Reveal Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Injury Status
The Milwaukee Bucks revealed Giannis Antetokounmpo’s injury status this weekend.
On Friday night, the best team in the Eastern Conference squared off against the best team in the Western Conference.
Ultimately, the Los Angeles Lakers emerged victorious – and Milwaukee’s defeat came with a price.
During the second half of the outing, Antetokounmpo tweaked his knee. Despite the injury, he stayed in the game.
According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Antetokounmpo is now set to get a precautionary MRI on his left knee.

“Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo is getting a precautionary MRI on his left knee,” he reported.
“The MVP landed hard on the floor and tweaked the knee in second half of the loss to the Lakers Friday night, but stayed in the game.”
Seeing as Milwaukee is currently very comfortably the best team in the East, preserving Antetokounmpo obviously takes top priority. There is really nothing for the Bucks to play for at this stage in the season.
As things stand, Antetokounmpo is currently averaging 29.6 points and 13.7 rebounds per outing.
On Sunday night, Milwaukee is set to take on the Phoenix Suns. If Antetokounmpo plays in the outing, it would signal that things are fine. If not, this could be a situation to keep an eye on.
