MILWAUKEE — Late in the third quarter of the Milwaukee Bucks‘ matchup with the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, Giannis Antetokounmpo left the game with a non-contact leg injury. The team later announced that he would not return due to a left calf strain. 

With just under four minutes to play in the frame, Celtics guard Derrick White knocked down a 3-pointer. After inbounding the ball to Damian Lillard, Antetokounmpo began running up the court and suddenly collapsed. 

Antetokounmpo immediately grabbed for his calf and remained on the ground for a brief period under the care of the Bucks’ medical staff. He eventually got to his feet and was helped off the court by his teammates. Cameras in the tunnel showed him walking toward the locker room under his own power, but with a significant limp. 

The two-time MVP has only missed six games this season, but has been battling nagging injuries in recent weeks. He most recently sat out on April 5 versus the Toronto Raptors due to left hamstring tendinopathy and had been listed as probable for Tuesday’s game due to the same issue. 

CBS Sports will continue updating this breaking news story.
