ORLANDO, Fla. - Shams Charania, an NBA insider for The Athletic, is reporting that Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is out for Game 5 against the Miami Heat on Tuesday evening, Sept. 8. The reason -- a right ankle sprain.
The Bucks are down 3-1 in the Eastern Conference semifinals to the Heat, with another win-or-go-home test awaiting in Game 5. And they don’t know if Antetokounmpo, who sprained his right ankle in Game 3 and then again in Game 4, will be ready.
Also Tuesday: Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals, with that matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets tied at a game apiece.
This is a developing story.
