Giannis Antetokounmpo, a star player for the Milwaukee Bucks, injured his knee on Monday and did not suit up for his team’s EuroBasket match against Great Britain.
“He had discomfort in his knee, but nothing major,” Greece head coach Dimitris Itoudis told reporters. “We did not want to risk anything, so we did not dress him up today.”
Greece won 93-77.
The forward has, for the most part, been spared severe injuries throughout his career; however, a variety of issues have forced him to miss time throughout the past few years.
Although an MRI returned negative, Antetokounmpo experienced discomfort in his knees and back while playing for the Greece national team in August. During the 2021-22 NBA season, he was sidelined for a total of 15 games due to the knee, ankle, and quad issues, with five of those absences being caused by the health and safety protocols of the NBA.

The six-time All-Star is still one of the most dominant players in the NBA when healthy. He set a career high with 29.9 points per game last season, adding 11.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.4 blocks per game.
With two MVPs, one Defensive Player of the Year award and one NBA title, the forward already has a Hall of Fame resume while still in the prime of his career.
