Giannis Antetokounmpo Ruled Out of Game 4 Against Hawks with Knee Injury

Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo left Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Hawks with an apparent injury to his left knee. He did not return to Tuesday night's game.

ESPN's Malika Andrews reported that Antetokounmpo is expected to undergo further imaging on his left knee on Wednesday. 

Antetokounmpo fell to the ground after he hyperextended his left knee when colliding with Atlanta's Clint Capela early in the third quarter. He was helped off the court and went to the locker room with the team trainer and his brother and teammate, Thanasis Antetokounmpo.
