Antetokounmpo was able to play 22 minutes in the game, though he obviously struggled to adapt to playing with the ankle hurting him. He scored just one point while missing all five of his field-goal attempts, though he did add four rebounds, two assists and one block in an 88-67 loss.
Antetokounmpo told reporters after suffering the injury Thursday that it was the first time he had aver sprained an ankle, so it was surprising to see him take the floor so soon.

He sprained his right ankle in the Thursday's game against the Lakers, and remains day to day moving forward. Coach Larry Drew told reporters before the game Antetokounmpo is moving well but still cannot cut off the ankle.
Antetokounmpo will be re-evaluated Sunday and is expected to travel on the team's upcoming three-game road trip, set to begin Monday in Detroit.
Antetokounmpo suffered the injury midway through the fourth quarter on an offensive foul, and had to be helped immediately to the locker room. X-rays taken on the ankle came back negative, and the team confirmed he has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle. Antetokounmpo told FOXSportsWisconsin.com it is the first time he has ever suffered a sprained ankle.
Antetokounmpo was in the midst of a solid game, having scored 10 points with seven rebounds, one block and three steals in 25 minutes before the injury. He will likely be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Heat.
Antetokounmpo scored 13 points on 5 of 8 from the floor, including 1 of 2 from downtown, and 2 of 2 from the free throw line.
