Giannis Antetokounmpo's injury brought good news

For the fourth time this season, Giannis Antetokounmpo signed a second game in a row with at least 40 points. Scorer of 41 points in Indianapolis on Friday, the Greek recorded another 50 points against the Pelicans overnight.

It is the fifth time in his career that he has reached 50 points scored in a single match in the regular season. "I just tried to be aggressive, to attack the basket, to try to find my points, to work on my pace, to just create.

It's my third game since I've been back, the fourth, I've just tried to pick up the pace. Sometimes it works in your favor, that was the case tonight." Giannis scored the last three points to reach 50, when the game was already on ice, creating a certain discontent in the opponents who didn't appreciate the gesture.

In the press conference, however, Antetkounmpo explained that this type of opportunity does not present itself every day and that one of his reasons for continuing to sign this type of performance is to be able to show his children one day what kind of player he was.

Giannis' injury

According to ESPN insiders, clinical tests ruled out ruptured ligaments in Giannis Antetokounmpo's right wrist. Good news for the Bucks staff, given that the player avoided a long stoppage. He will be visited again in the next few days and his rehabilitation process will begin.

Coach Budenholzer will certainly do without him on Friday when Milwaukee faces Miami. The hope of the Bucks is to have Giannis Antetokounmpo available a few games before the start of the Playoffs. This season, The Greek Freak is averaging 31.8 points, 12.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game.

In Sunday's All-Star Game he signed the first two points of the game, only to exit as a precaution so as not to worsen the situation. So, Giannis Antetokounmpo's injury brought good news. The problem with his right wrist is less serious than expected, thus avoiding a long stop. Surely The Greek Freak will miss Friday's match against Miami, but he will definitely be back in time for the playoffs.
