Giannis Antetokounmpo leaves Game 4 with ankle injury
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks was knocked out of Game 4 of his team’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Miami Heat with a sprained right ankle.
Antetokounmpo was driving to the basket with 10:18 left in the second quarter, trying to get past Miami’s Andre Iguodala. He went down and screamed in pain as he grabbed at the ankle. It didn’t take long for many Bucks players to gather around him in obvious concern.
Antetokounmpo eventually went to the bench, then went back onto the court to shoot his free throws.
The Bucks announced at halftime that Antetokounmpo would not return to the game. He finished with 19 points in 12 minutes.
