In a statement released on Tuesday afternoon, the Milwaukee Bucks announced Thanasis Antetokounmpo will be sidelined for two weeks. After a missed dunk attempt, Thanasis Antetokounmpo seemed to be in pain. He left the regular-season finale against the Chicago Bulls and did not return. After undergoing an MRI, team physician Dr. Carole Vetter ruled Antetokounmpo suffered an avulsion fracture to the right patella tendon.

Bucks Will Be Without Thanasis For Two Weeks
Due to the injury, Thanasis will be sidelined for two weeks. Following the two-week rest, Antetokounmpo will be re-evaluated. If all goes to plan for the Milwaukee Bucks, they will still be in their playoff run upon Thansis’s return. Although Thanasis has earned limited minutes, his impact on the floor has grown throughout the season. Antetokounmpo has appeared in 57 games in the 2020-2021 season. In those games, he has averaged 2.9 points and 2.2 rebounds.
If all goes smoothly, Thanasis should be able to re-enter the lineup on June 1st. Get well soon Thanasis!
