Troubling News For Milwaukee Bucks on Giannis Antetokounmpo

It was a much-needed win for the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night, but it came at a cost. Not as high of a cost as was feared for a few moments, but they will now be without superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo for the remainder of the regular season. 

On the bright side, that's only three games, and there's no Achilles damage, as had been feared. It's just a calf strain. But the bad news is that the Bucks are struggling to maintain home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, and going in—home or away—with Antetokounmpo not at 100% could spell a quick end to their postseason. 

Insider Shams Charania says these types of calf strains can be one to two weeks at the least for a return. The playoffs start in 10 days.

The incident was a scary one for the Bucks, as Giannis fell to the floor without any contact.

The Bucks, who've been struggling mightily in recent weeks, generally since Doc Rivers took over as head coach, seem to have their season hanging by a thread, and an injury to the Greek Freak, even if not severe, is the last thing they need right now.
