Doc Rivers: Antetokounmpo can play in series, but we won’t put him in danger


The Bucks playing again without him Giannis Antetokounmpo but this time without Damian Lillard they lost 126-113 to the Pacers and they are one loss away from elimination in the first round of the NBA playoffs (3-1). THE Doc Rivers although he still hopes to see the Greek Freak play in this series he makes it clear that his team is not going to jeopardize his health.

I think there is a chance that he will play in this series. I really believe it. I’m more optimistic. In training on Sunday morning he went well, he made moves, shot, ran, all these are good signs. There is nothing we can do. We want him to be healthy and we’re not going to put him at risk, we’re going to go with the players that are ready to play“, the Bucks coach pointed out after Game 4.

The kids gave their best, they believed they could win, despite our problems. We have to look at each game in order. Let’s look at it this way: we have two more home games and the Pacers have one in theirs. This is how we can deal with it. The first thing we have to do is win the next game and then we’ll see what happens next“, he added.

THE Brooke Lopez he said in turn:Giannis is the ultimate team player, he’s always with us and that’s great, but we don’t want him to be in danger if he’s not OK. He is doing his treatments as he should and we want him to do what is smartest for him».
