Giannis Antetokounmpo says ankle feels good despite tweak
Giannis Antetokounmpo says that his ankle is feeling good despite him tweaking it during Sunday’s home loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Giannis got hurt after falling when he went up for a layup during the game. He was walking gingerly after the fall.
Giannis Antetokounmpo falls hard and clutches his right foot/ankle. He stayed down for several seconds before getting up. You could hear a pin drop here in Fiserv Forum it was so quiet. He is up now, walking gingerly on that right foot.

The issue brought up bad memories for Bucks fans. Giannis hurt his ankle almost exactly a year ago and dealt with a sprain.
