Giannis Antetokounmpo revealed he was ready to ‘play with one leg’ in Game 5 against the Miami Heat.
The “Greek Freak” was dealing with an ankle injury and eventually missed the game, as he was not medically cleared to compete.
“If it’s up to me, I’d play with one leg, I really don’t care… I love my organization for that, I appreciate that they protected me. I wanted to play… My organization put my health over Game 5. That’s big for me,” Antetokounmpo told reporters, via Ben Golliver of the Washington Post.
The Bucks lost Game 5 (103-94) and were eliminated by the Heat (4-1).
However, Antetokounmpo made it clear he has no intention to request a trade from the Bucks.
