Giannis sprains right wrist at Bulls, ruled out

CHICAGO — Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo exited in the second quarter of Thursday’s game against the Chicago Bulls with a sprained right wrist.

Antetokounmpo injured his wrist after running into the stanchion while attempting to block a shot at the rim from Bulls guard Coby White. After checking out of the game, he was holding his right wrist on the sidelines before heading back to the locker room. The Bucks announced he would not return.

Antetokounmpo scored two points, grabbed seven rebounds and made three assists in nine minutes, including an assist to Jevon Carter in the first quarter that made him the all-time leader in assists in Bucks history.

Antetokounmpo, a team captain and starter in the All-Star Game on Sunday, closes out the season’s first half as the first player in NBA history to average 30 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists on 50% shooting at the All-Star break, according to research by ESPN Stats & Information. The Bucks are attempting to extend their 11-game winning streak in their final game before the All-Star break.
