Giannis Antetokounmpo’s availability for the Milwaukee Bucks’ upcoming first-round series against the Indiana Pacers is in doubt due to a left calf strain.

It’s unlikely he will be ready for the series opener, but the Bucks remain optimistic that ongoing treatment will facilitate his return at some point during the series.

Antetokounmpo’s history of playoff injuries, including a back issue in last season’s first-round series against the Miami Heat, adds to the concern surrounding his current condition.
