Giannis Antetokounmpo suffers an apparent left knee injury while challenging an alley-oop at the hoop. Antetokounmpo was helped to the locker room by his brother before briefly returning to the bench. Giannis ultimately limped back to the locker room after a few more minutes. We will have more on Giannis’s injury when that information is made available by the Bucks.
