Just hours before game 4 between Indiana Pacers It is Milwaukee Bucksthis Sunday, 28th, the Wisconsin franchise officially announced that the Greek winger Giannis Antetokounmpo and the veteran point guard Damian Lillard will not be present at the match, which takes place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The American has been one of the team's main players in the playoff series, but was ruled out due to an aggravated Achilles injury. The European, on the other hand, didn't even enter the court in the postseason and remains out.

Giannis' absence is no surprise to fans, but losing Lillard for the fourth matchup against the Pacers is bad news, especially given the point guard's good performances in the guard's first three games. However, in the last quarter of the duel last Friday, the 26th, Damian worsened a problem that he has been dealing with for a while. According to “The Athletic”, it is the Achilles tendon in his right foot and the player was even seen wearing an orthopedic boot on Saturday, the 27th, after the defeat away from home.

It's worth remembering that the injured region has been bothering Lillard for a few weeks. In other words, it is not a problem caused in the last game. The point guard revealed that he was feeling discomfort after the end of the regular season. As a result, he sat out the first few days of training camp before the playoffs to recover. Giannis hasn't been able to play in the postseason yet. The Bucks' main star hasn't been on the court since April 9, when he suffered a calf strain in the win over the Boston Celtics.
