Star player Giannis Antetokounmpo was helped off the court with a calf injury in the Milwaukee Bucks’ 104-91 win over the Boston Celtics.

The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player collected 15 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Bucks before he fell to the floor in the third quarter.

He clutched his left leg and was escorted from the court by team-mates.

The Bucks said he had suffered a left soleus strain and would not return for the fourth quarter.

Antetokounmpo’s injury overshadowed an encouraging win for the Bucks, who ended their own four-game losing streak as well as the Celtics’ five-game unbeaten run.
