Giannis Antetokounmpo injury update: Bucks star ruled out of 2021 NBA Finals rematch with Suns on Sunday

Giannis Antetokounmpo injury update Bucks star doubtful for 2021 NBA

The Milwaukee Bucks and their star player Giannis Antetokounmpo will be without their leading man on Sunday when they face the Phoenix Suns in a 2021 NBA Finals rematch.

Antetokounmpo has been ruled out of the game due to a knee injury he suffered in the Bucks’ previous game against the Dallas Mavericks. The reigning two-time MVP was forced to leave the game in the fourth quarter after he collided with Mavericks guard Luka Doncic.

The Bucks have yet to provide an update on the severity of Antetokounmpo’s injury, but it is not believed to be serious. However, the team is taking a cautious approach and will not risk playing their star player until he is fully recovered.

The news of Antetokounmpo’s absence will come as a blow to Bucks fans, who were hoping to see their star player in action against the Suns. The Bucks lost to the Suns in the 2021 NBA Finals, and Sunday’s game was set to be a chance for the Bucks to exact revenge and prove that they are still a force to be reckoned with.

Without Antetokounmpo in the lineup, the Bucks will be relying on the likes of Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, and Brook Lopez to lead the way. It will be a tough task for the Bucks to win without their star player, but they will be hoping to prove that they can still compete without him.

The Bucks and the Suns will tip-off at 8:00 PM ET on Sunday.
