Antetokounmpo remains out for Game 6 due to health and safety protocols, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports. The 29-year-old's absence didn't affect the Bucks' game plan on Saturday so it shouldn't change much for Game 6 either. It appears unlikely that Antetokounmpo would be available for a Game 7, if it is necessary.
Antetokounmpo is out for Saturday's Game 5 against the Suns due to health and safety protocols, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Antetokounmpo has only seen limited run throughout the course of the playoffs, so his absence Saturday shouldn't affect the Bucks' game plan. It's certainly possible that he will be out for the remainder of the Finals.
An exam Sunday revealed that Antetokounmpo suffered an avulsion fracture to his right patella tendon and will miss at least the next two weeks. Antetokounmpo will be reevaluated following the two weeks to determine what is next for him. While he's not typically a huge contributor in the rotation, his absence will leave the Bucks down some bench depth to open the playoffs.
Antetokounmpo has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bulls due to right patella tendon soreness. Antetokounmpo went to the locker room in the third quarter of Sunday's contest and was ruled out shortly after. It's not yet clear whether his injury will impact his availability for the start of the playoffs.
Antetokounmpo added three points (3-4 FT) and two steals during Monday's loss to the Spurs. This was Antetokounmpo's third straight outing with exactly three points, as the forward has gone seven for his last 10 at the charity stripe. Since April 24 against Philadelphia, Antetokounmpo has totaled 13 points and 12 rebounds in seven appearances.
