Giannis Antetokounmpo Medical Imaging Reveals Wrist Injury Diagnosis

Giannis Antetokounmpo only played one minute in the All-Star game, as he was protecting his injured wrist. Now medical imaging has revealed the true nature of the injury, and the Greek Freak will be forced to miss some games, but hopefully not many.

NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Giannis suffered a sprained ligament in his right wrist and will undergo treatment. But the Bucks are surely breathing a sigh of relief, as there is no serious damage. 

There's an expectation that he'll be able to return to the lineup once the pain subsides.

Maybe Giannis himself should predict when he'll be able to return. His prognostication powers were in full effect on the weekend, when he predicted before the All-Star game that Damian Lillard would hit the game-winning shot.

Antetokounmpo, as usual, is having another MVP-type season, averaging 31.8 points (3rd in NBA), 12.2 rebounds (2nd) and 5.4 assists. He also leads the league with the lowest opponents' FG against when being guarded by him. 

The Bucks can ill afford to have any considerable time without Giannis, and with today's diagnosis, it doesn't appear they will.
