Giannis Antetokounmpo exits with eye injury, will be re-evaluated Thursday

Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered an apparent injury around his right eye and had to leave early in the fourth quarter of the Bucks' 110-87 road loss to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

Bucks coach Joe Prunty said Antetokounmpo will be re-evaluated Thursday.

Antetokounmpo, 22, said he was poked in the right eye as he leaped to attempt a tip-in with 10:08 remaining in the contest. He went down and was attended to by a team trainer. He then left the game and did not return.

Antetokounmpo said afterward that the vision in his right eye was blurry.

"When I look straight, it's cleared up. When I look down, things are moving," said Antetokounmpo, who also was hit in the left eye in the third quarter. "Hopefully, when I sleep tonight and wake up tomorrow morning it's [better]. Right now, I'll be fine."

Antetokounmpo finished with 11 points, three rebounds and two assists.
