Giannis Antetokounmpo Sidelined with Left Calf Injury for Bucks' Final Regular Season Games

Milwaukee Bucks All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will not play for the rest of the regular season because of his left calf injury during Tuesday’s game against the Boston Celtics.

Injury Details:

Antetokounmpo sustained a left soleus tear during Tuesday’s contest with the Celtics in the third quarter.

The MRI scan revealed the damage done in the left calf, hence, the decision for him not to play the last three regular season games.

Game Incident:

The clash was in the third quarter at the start when Antetokounmpo was jogging from the triple-pointed shot by White of Boston basketball. The player who had just been assisted off the court also did the same, his hands swiftly embarking on his left calf.

Team Reaction:

After having his teammate Damien Lillard show his feelings of worry for Greek Freak, the teammate has also articulated the fact that it is very crucial to the team because it is the first round of the playoffs and the team’s best player is out of the playoffs.

With playoffs approaching, they’ve now become preoccupied with confirming that Antetokounmpo fully regains his form in time for playoffs.\

Playoff Implications:

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s absence adds to the Bucks’ difficulties as they fight for their position in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Currently holding the No. Teams such as the New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavs, and Indiana Pacers have also joined the race in the standings with the 2 seed status.

Team Schedule:

Just due to Antetokounmpo’s injury, the Bucks still keep up a stride against the Orlando Magic, and Oklahoma City Thunder, and the regular season closes with an equal game against the Orlando Magic.

Injury History:

The latest of the bunch, this injury binds with recent absences that the player has encountered due to tendinopathy and Achilles tendonitis in his left hamstring and left Achilles respectively.

Of course, a stripped-down Bucks squad has had very few chances to put its prized troika of Antetokounmpo, Lillard, and Middleton into competition, seeing only five of 30 games.
