Giannis Antetokounmpo admitted he was a bit of a nervous wreck leading up to the recent MRI.
The Milwaukee Bucks center picked up a knee injury (left) after an awkward landing during Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers and, according to ESPN‘s Makila Andrews, a subsequent scan revealed a minor capsule sprain in the joint.
Asked how nervous he was prior to the MRI, the 25-year-old jokingly claimed to have soiled his pants, per The Athletic‘s Eric Nehm.
This comes just days after James Harden appeared to soil his own pants during a game against the Boston Celtics. Whether or not this was a dig at the former MVP is unclear, but it certainly leans that way, especially given their recent exchanges.
Meanwhile, Giannis revealed having taken part in the Bucks’ scrimmage on Wednesday. He could possibly return to action against the Celtics on Thursday night.
