Antetokounmpo was on the pitch for several moments afterward, and he was eventually helped back into the Milwaukee locker room. He returned to the Milwaukee bench briefly in the third quarter, but returned to the locker room after a few moments. It was finally excluded for the rest of the match due to hyperextension of the left knee. It is should have an MRI Wednesday, and more will be known about the severity of the injury at that time.

Before leaving the game, Antetokounmpo had 14 points and 8 rebounds in 24 minutes of action. Once he fell, the Hawks quickly pulled away from the Bucks and earned a 110-88 win to tie the series at two games apiece. The fifth game of the series is scheduled for Thursday evening.

At this point, Antetokounmpo’s status for the rest of the series is not known. The Bucks only have to hope the injury was one that looked worse than it actually was.
