MILWAUKEE (AP) Milwaukee Bucks reserve ahead Thanasis Antetokounmpo will miss the beginning of the playoffs after struggling an avulsion fracture to his proper patella tendon in his staff’s regular-season finale.
Bucks officers stated Tuesday that the 29-year-old might be out for not less than two weeks and can be evaluated once more at that time. Antetokounmpo underwent an MRI after a leg harm had knocked him out of a 118-112 loss at Chicago an evening earlier.
The Bucks are the No. 3 seed within the Japanese Convention playoffs and open a first-round sequence with the Miami Warmth on Saturday.
Antetokounmpo, the older brother of Milwaukee Bucks ahead and two-time reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, has performed 57 video games and made three begins this yr. He’s averaging 2.9 factors, 2.2 rebounds and 9.7 minutes.
