Bucks officials had said Wednesday that Antetokounmpo was doubtful after an MRI revealed he hyperextended his left knee in Game 4.
A revised injury report released Thursday lists him as out.
Antetokounmpo hurt his knee while trying to block a dunk attempt by Clint Capela in the third quarter of the Hawks' 110-88 victory. The Bucks and Hawks are tied at two games apiece heading into Game 5.
