Giannis Antetokounmpo limping due to ankle injury
Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as questionable for Game 4 of the Milwaukee Bucks’ Eastern Conference semifinals playoff series with the Miami Heat on Sunday due to a sprained ankle.
Antetokounmpo rolled his right ankle during the first quarter of the Bucks’ Game 3 loss on Friday night. He didn’t play as many minutes as fans expected for an MVP in a critical game, and the ankle injury likely explained it.
Though Antetokounmpo declined to say he was dealing with an injury, he is now questionable for the game. Reporter Tim Reynolds said that Antetokounmpo had a noticeable limp on Saturday.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, listed as questionable for tomorrow with an ankle issue, was seen with a very noticeable limp today.

Milwaukee is already down 3-0 in the series and their star player is injured. The chances of them coming back from down 3-0 was already tough. Now that Giannis also has a sprained ankle that has him limping, their chances of a comeback looks less likely.
