Giannis Down


Bucks Fend of Heat to Extend Series, Lose Giannis to Ankle Injury

Somehow, behind the incredible play of Khris Middleton, the Milwaukee Bucks survived Game 4 to extend the series, but it came at a price.

Bucks’ superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, who already was nursing an injury entering the game, appeared to have sprained and re-aggrevated his right ankle in the second quarter. Antetokounmpo would leave the game, not to return, and was seen boarding the team bus with a walking boot following the Bucks’ huge 118-115 victory.

“As far as for Game 5, they’re evaluating him now,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said after the game. “He’ll get treatment through the night. We’ll just how he does over the next 24 to 48 hours.”

The MVP favourite was incredible prior to leaving the game, scoring 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting in just 11 minutes of play. Middleton’s 36 points was crucial to allow the Bucks to see another day.

“You feel for Giannis,” Budenholzer said. “I hope it’s not last what he did in the first 10 or 12 minutes. On an ankle that is not fully 100 percent, he was phenomenal to start the game. Gave us a huge boost.

Game 5 will go on Tuesday.
