Giannis Antetokounmpo has been officially listed as doubtful heading to Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks.

Antetokounmpo suffered a hyperextended left knee injury in Game 4 of the series, causing him to miss Game 5. While no structural damage has been relieved, the Bucks are not expected to rush back the two-time MVP.

It is still unknown if Giannis Antetokounmpo can still return to the Bucks in the series against the Hawks, or even in the whole 2021 playoffs.

The Bucks are up 3-2 in the series, being one win away from the first appearance in NBA Finals since 1974. The Hawks are expected to fight back in front of their home crowd, there is no doubt Milwaukee has all the momentum right now.
