Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks' star forward, will be sidelined for the final three games of the regular season due to a strained left calf.

The injury occurred during the third quarter of Tuesday's game against the Boston Celtics, forcing him to leave the court. According to team officials, Antetokounmpo's diagnosis is a left soleus strain, a muscle in the calf.

Teammate Damian Lillard expressed concern, highlighting Antetokounmpo's importance to the team. With the playoffs approaching, the Bucks, currently second in the Eastern Conference, will miss his presence on the court.

The race for seeding intensifies as the New York Knicks trail the Bucks by one game. Khris Middleton emphasized the need for Antetokounmpo to recuperate fully for the playoffs.

However, the Bucks must focus on their upcoming games against the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, and another matchup against the Magic to close out the season.

Antetokounmpo's absence adds to a series of missed games due to various injuries, including tendinopathy in his left hamstring and left Achilles tendinitis.

His availability has been limited in recent games, with only five occasions in the last 30 games where Antetokounmpo, Lillard, and Middleton were all on the court together.
