The Milwaukee Bucks GM Jon Horst has provided an update on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s knee injury.

The two-time MVP suffered a hyperextended left knee in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals and missed the team’s wins in Games 5-6.

Giannis was a major doubt heading into the NBA Finals, although he was able to play in Game 1 and posted 20 points, 17 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in the 118-105 loss.

And Horst told reporters Bucks superstar won’t need offseason surgery on the left knee.

“He’s fine,” he said. “I can’t explain it, but he’s fine.”


“I thought I would be out for a year,” Antetokounmpo added on making his way back on the court for Game 1 after the injury.


“It was tough. Obviously I had to do my best to get back. Listen to my medical staff. I did the right treatment. Took care of my body and supported my teammates, and now I’m back.”
