MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks will be without their two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo for the start of the playoffs, according to ESPN.

ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski posted the news on X Tuesday morning, saying Antetokounmpo will miss the start of their opening round series against the Indiana Pacers due to his left calf strain injury.

However, Wojnarowski said sources are “hopeful" treament of the injury will allow him to return "sometime later in the series.”

Antetokounmpo missed the last three games of the regular season with the strained left calf after he fell to the ground during a game against the Boston Celtics.
