Giannis seemed to roll his ankle after stepping on his own teammate Shabazz Muhammad in Wednesday night's game against the Clippers. He was escorted into the locker room and not seen again for the rest of the game.
In his absence, we saw a lot more of Jabari Parker who hit season highs in minutes played and points when the Greek Freak left the game.
Head Coach Joe Prunty said without Giannis on the floor the sole focus is on defense saying they have to play with a better sense of urgency. There is no official timetable for his recovery.
