Giannis Antetokounmpo recently revealed that the left knee he hyperextended in the Eastern Conference Finals is "still hurting."
This week, he clarified what he meant by the comments.
“I feel good,” Antetokounmpo said. “Obviously, I gotta do my treatment like always. Take care of my body and just manage it. There’s no rush for me here. I’m good to go, but if I feel pain again or whatever the case might be, I have to listen to my body. When you feel pain, it’s your body telling you. It’s protecting you. You can’t go anymore. I’ve played through pain. I don’t think now is the time to risk that. It’s too early in the season, but at the end of the day, I feel good physically, mentally. I’ll do whatever I have to do to be 100 percent.”
