The Bucks may be in trouble. Bucks’ star and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo had to be helped off the court and limped back to the locker room — although part of the way under his own power — after a gruesome hyperextension of his left knee.
The injury occurred in the third quarter of Game 4, a game without Hawks’ star Trae Young due to a bone bruise on his foot. Antetokounmpo went up to attempt to block an alley-oop pass to Atlanta’s Clint Capela, they collided mid-air, Antetokounmpo came down wrong and his left knee bent backward.
Antetokounmpo returned briefly to the Bucks bench, but the Milwaukee trainers and coaching staff thought better of putting him back out on the court.
Antetokounmpo went back to the locker room under his own power but with a noticeable limp. He did not return.
