When Giannis Antetokounmpo landed awkwardly on his left knee and went to the floor, many Milwaukee Bucks fans thought the worst as they saw their best chance for an NBA title since 197 lying in a pain-writing heap under the Atlanta basket. The consternation around the team and fan base surrounding their two-time MVP certainly was not without cause ; knees are not supposed to bend that way and when they do three letters are tossed around that routinely alters the trajectory of the careers of many an athlete.
Fortunately, this will not be the case for Antetokounmpo, as an MRI revealed that there was no structural damage to the knee and this included the ligaments.
If you heard a large wind gust that was just the collective sigh of relief coming from the city of Milwaukee.
No word at this point on when he will return.
