Shams Charania on Bucks Star Giannis Antetokounmpo's Injury: "There's Real Doubt"

When Giannis Antetokounmpo went down with a calf strain on April 9th against the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks fans held their collective breaths as the hopes of winning another NBA Championship were put on hold.

With the playoffs less than a week away, Antetokounmpo has yet to return to the court, and his status for the team's first-round series against the Indiana Pacers is still in question.

On Monday's episode of Run It Back, NBA insider Shams Charania shared what he's hearing about the former MVP's likelihood of a return by the start of the first round.

Below is the clip discussed above:

Despite the caution, FanDuel Sportsbook still has the Bucks at -172 odds to beat the Pacers in the opening series, the second-best odds to win the Eastern Conference (+700), and tied for the third-best odds to win the NBA title (+1400).
