Milwaukee Bucks fans brace for the first round series against the Indiana Pacers without their star player Giannis Antetokounmpo, sidelined due to a calf injury sustained over a week ago.

Despite Giannis’s reputation for speedy recoveries, NBA insider Shams Charania suggests that his absence could extend for a considerable period, with estimates ranging from 2 to 4 weeks.

The absence of the Greek Freak poses a significant challenge for the Bucks as they embark on their playoff journey, potentially impacting their chances of making a deep postseason run.

Giannis’s absence leaves a void in the Bucks’ lineup, as he averaged 30.4 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game during the regular season.
