Giannis Suffers Grim Knee Injury

Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered a knee injury about five minutes into the third quarter of tonight's game against the Hawks. The former MVP appeared to hyperextend his knee after jumping for a rebound:

Though the severity of Antetokounmpo's injury is currently undetermined, the Bucks are praying that it isn't an ACL injury.

Needless to say, Milwaukee's title chances rely heavily on the outcome of this injury. In these playoffs, Giannis has averaged 28.2 points, 12.7 rebounds, 5.2 assists and a whopping plus-minus rating of plus-100 according to StatMuse

Players around the league have voiced their support via Twitter, including Hawks center Clint Capela, who was involved in the play.

The Bucks play the Hawks on Thursday at 8:30 P.M. E.T. The series is tied 2-2.
