Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s crucial update on knee injury after dark thoughts

Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo

After Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, Giannis Antetokounmpo confessed having dark thoughts about his injury, sharing that he thought he wrecked everything in his knee. Fortunately, it looks like everything is going well now for the Milwaukee Bucks star.

On Wednesday, less than 24 hours following their frustrating 118-105 loss to the Phoenix Suns, Antetokounmpo provided another update to his concerning knee injury and shared that he is feeling “good.” Giannis played 35 minutes on his way to 20 points and 17 rebounds in the contest, so there were fears he could feel sore the following day.

Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer doubled down on the injury update on Giannis Antetokounmpo, emphasizing that “everything” has been clean for the uber-athletic forward.

By the looks of it, the Greek Freak will be ready to suit up and start once again in Game 2 in Phoenix before the series shifts to Milwaukee.

There were some fans questioning whether the Bucks made a mistake playing Giannis in the NBA Finals opener instead of giving him an extra day of rest. Besides, Antetokounmpo was initially listed as doubtful so there were little to no expectations that he would actually play. Luckily for the team, the 26-year-old proved he is more than ready physically and mentally.

The Suns lead the series 1-0, so expect Giannis and the Bucks to come out firing right from the start of Game 2.
