Check out the tweet by Adrian Wojnarowski below:
Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, a loss that would be hard to digest for a team with the best record in the East. Though Giannis came down hard on the floor, he continued to play in the game. The former MVP finished with 32 points, 11 rebounds, and six dishes fro the game.
The Bucks were crestfallen by their 10th loss of the season, primarily because it was against the Lakers who are their leading rivals this season. Further, they will be hopeful that the results of the MRI are okay, and the Greek Freak is fit and healthy. Losing Giannis will be the last thing the Bucks want as the tournament approaches its final stages.
The Bucks have now lost two of their last three games and will be hopeful of getting back to the winning ways soon. They face the Phoenix Suns in their next game on the road and will be expected to give some rest to Giannis.Published 08 Mar 2020, 02:33 IST
