Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo 'doubtful' for Game 6

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks announced Giannis Antetokounmpo is doubtful for Saturday's Game 6.

The Bucks made the announcement on Friday, July 2. 

Antetokounmpo did not play in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday, July 1. Bucks fans were shocked after seeing Antetokounmpo walk off the court with a hyperextended knee injury during Game 4 on Tuesday, June 29. 

The Milwaukee Bucks said Antetokounmpo, 26, underwent an MRi and subsequent examination by team Physician Dr. Carole Vetter of the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network. The MRI confirmed the earlier diagnosis. 

Whether he returns to the playoffs or not, fans are confident the Bucks can still win a championship without their MVP.

"Most definitely. They've got Khris Middleton," Bucks fan Desmond Barnes said. "He's the batman of the Milwaukee Bucks."

Fans are wishing Antetokounmpo a speedy recovery and will continue to cheer the team on in the Deer District for Game 6 on Saturday, July 3.
