There were three games on the NBA roster yesterday before the All-Star Weekend celebrations begin tonight. The Milwaukee Bucks were out last night to face the Chicago Bulls in the final game before the teams get a much-needed rest. In the second quarter of yesterday’s game, All-Star captain Giannis Antetokounmpo sprained his wrist trying to block a shot and fell awkwardly to the ground. His All-Star availability for this weekend is now in serious question.

He only played nine minutes last night and finished 2/7/3 but his teammates were able to pull off a 112-100 win. That was Milwaukee’s 12th straight win en route to the All-Star break and it’s the momentum the team needs to stay within striking distance of the Boston Celtics.

Antetokounmpo is scheduled to compete with his brothers in Saturday night’s skill competition and Sunday’s All-Star game. Initial reports from the Bucks say the injury was minor. Wisconsin sports betting sites have the Bucks at (+525) to win the finals this season.

Will Giannis Antetokounmpo be able to compete in the All-Star Game?

The injury for Giannis happened in the second quarter as he defended against Coby White and tried to block his shot. He didn’t log a block, but it was enough defense to make White miss the shot. White fell to the ground after his shot, accidentally knocking Antetokounmpo who was right behind him.

Giannis took the worst and stopped a hard fall by falling into the brace, injuring his wrist. He’s already missed 11 games this season, but thankfully they’re on the All-Star hiatus for now. Milwaukee won’t risk another injury to their two-time MVP just so fans can see him at All-Star Weekend.

His head coach Mike Budenholzer said his wrist X-rays came back negative and that Milwaukee is unsure of how his status will go going forward. This includes the All-Star weekend. Fans will be disappointed if Antetokounmpo can’t play in the All-Star Game, but the Bucks have to be careful with their franchise cornerstone.
