Antetokounmpo was down on the court for a number of moments afterward, and he was eventually helped again to Milwaukee’s locker room. He returned to Milwaukee’s bench briefly during the third quarter, however, he headed again to the locker room again after a number of moments. He was eventually ruled out for the remainder of the game due to a left knee hyperextension. He’s expected to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, and extra will probably be known about the severity of the injury at that point.
Earlier than exiting the sport, Antetokounmpo had 14 points and 8 rebounds in 24 minutes of action. Once he went down, the Hawks rapidly pulled away from the Bucks and pulled out a 110-88 win to even the series up at two games apiece. Sport 5 of the sequence is scheduled for Thursday evening.
At this point, Antetokounmpo’s standing for the rest of the series isn’t known. The Bucks just should hope that the damage was one that looked worse than it truly was.
