Milwaukee Bucks’ star player Giannis Antetokounmpo’s fate hangs in the balance as the team anxiously awaits MRI results following his Achilles injury during Tuesday’s game against the Boston Celtics.

The Bucks managed to secure a 104-91 victory at Fiserv Forum, maintaining their second-place position in the Eastern Conference. However, the celebration was subdued by Antetokounmpo’s departure from the court, clutching his calf.

Head coach Doc Rivers expressed concerns about the severity of the injury, stating that the team is “just gonna hope for the best” as they await further medical evaluation.

Antetokounmpo’s injury comes at a critical time with the NBA playoffs looming. The first round is set to begin on April 20, raising questions about his availability for the postseason.

While initial reports suggest Antetokounmpo has avoided damage to his Achilles tendon, the extent of his strained calf injury remains uncertain. With no clear timeline for his recovery, the Bucks are hopeful for his return before the conclusion of the first round.

As the basketball world holds its breath, all eyes are on the MRI results, which will determine the star player’s future in the playoffs.
