With the Bucks and Eagles hoping to maintain their hopes of winning the championship, the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Trey Young is imminent.
Antetokounmpo (left knee hyperextension) and Young (right foot bone contusion) are both recovering from injuries during the 2022 Eastern Conference Finals. A young Atlanta team successfully tied the series in Game 4, but Milwaukee responded by participating in Game 5 without Antetokounmpo.
Neither star is excluded from the NBA playoffs, so when will they return to the game?
Below is the latest news from Antetokounmpo and Yang before the 6th game on Saturday.
Will Giannis Antetokounmpo participate in the competition? eagle?
Antetokounmpo was listed as suspicious in the official 6th game injury report. Before being finally excluded, he won the same title before the 5th game.
Although Antetokounmpo seems unlikely to participate in the sixth game, there is some good news for Bucks fans. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported that if the series reaches Game 7, the two-time NBA MVP will be able to play.
League sources said that if the Eagles avoid being eliminated in Saturday’s sixth game, the Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will receive the green light for a possible seventh game. @雅虎体育.

In 15 playoff games, Antetokounmpo averaged 28.2 points, 12.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game, shooting 55.1% from the field.
Will Tre Young play against the Bucks?
Young was listed as a suspicious player in the 6th game. The 22-year-old was also listed as a suspicious player before the 5th game, but did not participate in the game after testing his injured foot during the warm-up before the game.
Eagles coach Nate McMillan told reporters on Friday that Yang’s ability to play may depend on the pain in his right foot.
Nate McMillan to Tre Young: “This is not a long-term thing. His pain makes him uncomfortable, unable to play and feel that he can help the team.”
