Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo doubtful for Game 6 vs. Hawks

Giannis Antetokounmpo was forced to leave the court after coming down hard on a play at the net.

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as doubtful for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.

Antetokounmpo sat out Thursday's Game 5 after an MRI revealed he hyperextended his left knee during Game 4 against Atlanta.

The two-time MVP hurt his knee while trying to block a dunk attempt by Clint Capela in the third quarter of the Hawks’ 110-88 victory. He landed awkwardly, clutched his knee in obvious pain and remained down for several minutes before walking slowly to the locker room.

Milwaukee looks to move on to the NBA Finals as it leads the Hawks 3-2 in the series. Antetokounmpo has averaged 28.2 points, 12.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists in the Playoffs.
