Giannis Antetokounmpo placed in concussion protocol, out for Monday game vs. Toronto
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol and will not play in Monday night’s game vs. Toronto.
Antetokounmpo sustained a blow to the head in Saturday night’s win over Orlando. Bucks team physicians followed league protocols and consulted the league’s neurologist during the evaluation periods. Antetokounmpo passed his neurological tests that created significant doubt that it was a concussion and he was allowed to return to play.
Antetokounmpo was evaluated again yesterday and reported new symptoms along with a lingering headache. For that reason, he was placed into the concussion protocol and will miss Monday's game.
