Giannis questionable for Game 4 with ankle sprain

NBA

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat with a right ankle sprain.

The reigning MVP rolled the ankle during the first half of Game 3, but continued to push through it despite grimacing on some plays throughout the contest.

Antetokounmpo refused to make any excuses about the ankle after Friday’s loss claiming “it wasn’t bothering me at all.”

“He’s a guy who’s going to fight through everything. The medical, the sports performance group said, he was good to go and keep playing,” added Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer, when asked about Antetokounmpo’s ankle after Game 3. “Exactly how he felt and how he was affected. He’s out there competing and giving us everything he’s got. I thought he did a lot of things well. But we all gotta do a little better.”

The No. 1-seeded Bucks head into Sunday’s game on the brink of elimination. No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven playoff series.
