Antetokounmpo (calf) is unlikely to return for any of the Bucks' final three regular-season games, and his status for the start of the playoffs is in question, Shams Charania reported Wednesday on FanDuel TV's "Run It Back" program.

Antetokounmpo exited Tuesday's 104-91 win over the Celtics after suffering a non-contact injury in the third quarter. Though an MRI ruled out any damage to his left Achilles' tendon, he's still dealing with a left calf strain, and his return to play will be based on how his calf responds to treatment and rehab. According to Charania, the typical return timeline for any injury of this sort in 1-to-2 weeks, so the Bucks are likely to proceed cautiously with the two-time MVP for the final week of the regular season. Antetokounmpo has dealt with various injuries in his left leg this season and will presumably be monitored closely before being cleared to return for game action.
