There has been much concern about Giannis Antetokounmpo’s injury. The Milwaukee Bucks superstar had some tests on his right wrist on Monday, and fans will be happy to hear that the results were encouraging.
Giannis and the Bucks seem to have dodged a bullet here. NBA guru Shams Charania provided some information on the results of Giannis’ injured wrist test and it appears that the Greek should be able to return to the lineup fairly soon:
“Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks has avoided serious damage to his right wrist after further tests done today, sources told The Athletic, Stadium. Antetokounmpo could miss some games, but the Bucks can breathe a general sigh of relief.”.

To be clear, the Bucks have yet to make an announcement regarding Antetokounmpo’s possible return. As Shams said, it is still very likely that Giannis will miss a few games to let his wrist heal. However, the biggest advantage here is that the former MVP will be back in action in the near future and not several weeks from now.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also provided details of Giannis’ official injury diagnosis and the steps the Bucks plan to take moving forward:
“Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered a ligament sprain in his right wrist and will undergo treatment with the expectation that he will be able to return to the lineup once the pain subsides, ESPN sources said. He was examined today in New York.”, wrote Woj in his tweet.
