Giannis Antetokounmpo will not return to the court Sunday afternoon.

The Bucks star exited Sunday’s Game 4 matchup between Milwaukee and the Miami Heat in the NBA Bubble after appearing to roll his right ankle on a drive early in the second quarter.

He clutched the ankle almost immediately after hitting the floor and could be heard screaming in pain.

Here’s how it played out, via ESPN:

Antetokounmpo eventually managed to get up and take his free throws before leaving the court to be evaluated. The Bucks later announced he would not return due to a right ankle sprain.

Antetokounmpo was a game-time decision ahead of Game 4 after spraining the same ankle in the first half of Game 3 on Friday.
