Antetokounmpo landed awkwardly on his left leg after jumping to defend an alley-oop from John Collins to Clint Capela. The Bucks star stayed on the ground for several minutes, surrounded by players from both sides and was eventually helped up by his brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo. He managed to limp to the locker room without assistance.
Players from around the NBA, including LeBron James, sent well-wishes for Antetokounmpo.
