Giannis Antetokounmpo's return for Game 6 in doubt

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo did not play in the team’s 123-112 victory in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks.

Antetokounmpo suffered a hyperextension in his left knee during Game 4 on Tuesday and had been listed as doubtful for Thursday night’s game. An MRI showed no structural or ligament damage, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe on Wednesday.

But sources said the timing for Antetokounmpo’s return is unclear.

Milwaukee leads the series 3-2.

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said Antetokounmpo worked in the weight room at shooting practice Thursday morning, but didn’t do any on-court work. Antetokounmpo has averaged 28.2 points, 12.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists in the postseason.

Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young also missed Thursday night’s game with a bruise to the bone in his right foot. Center Clint Capela, who was listed as questionable after receiving an inadvertent elbow to the face at the end of Game 4, started in Game 5 and scored six points and had eight rebounds in 21 minutes.
