With 10 minutes and 55 seconds remaining in the second quarter, when the team was leading 34-27, he tried to block Kobe White’s layup shot, but fell onto the court and hit his right hand on the goal post. Afterwards, he complained of excruciating pain and eventually left the court.

He left the court with 2 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists in 9 minutes and 19 seconds of the game. The Bucks team announced that they would miss the rest of the game due to a ‘right wrist ligament sprain’.

Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said nothing was wrong with the X-ray test, saying, “We will continue to monitor the situation.”

Antetokounmpo ranked first in the Eastern Conference All-Star fan poll and was selected as captain. He was scheduled to lead Team Giannis in the All-Star Game. Budenholzer said he didn’t know if he would make it to the All-Star Game.

Even with his absence, the team won 112-100. With this victory, the first half ended with a 12-game winning streak.

Antetokounmpo also broke Paul Fresh’s record for most assists (3,274) in his personal career with the Bucks club.

According to ‘ESPN’, he is the second player after Kevin Garnett (Minnesota) to rank first in the club’s personal career records for most points, assists, and blocked shots.

Brooke Lopez had 33 points and 7 rebounds, Jevon Carter had 22 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists, and Zhu Holiday had 15 points and 9 assists.

In Chicago, Nikola Vucevic scored 22 points and 16 rebounds, Zack Ravin scored 18 points, and Patrick Williams scored 16 points, but the light faded.
