Giannis out as Bucks try to punch Finals ticket

Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been ruled out of Game 6 as the Milwaukee Bucks look to clinch a berth in the NBA Finals on Saturday, the team announced.

Antetokounmpo also missed Milwaukee’s win in Game 5 after he suffered a hyperextended left knee late in Game 4. A timetable for the return of the two-time MVP is unclear.

Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young, meanwhile, is still listed as questionable with a bone bruise in his right foot.

“Another Day, Another Opportunity,” Young posted to Twitter on Saturday afternoon.

The Bucks, trying to reach the Finals for the first time since 1974, have a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Sources have told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe that a timetable for Antetokounmpo’s return is unclear

Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic is listed as probable with right knee soreness, though he has yet to miss a game this postseason with the ongoing issue.
