After abruptly landing on his back following a contact with Kevin Love on a drive to the basket, 

Antetokounmpo left Game 1 of the first-round series. The star forward left the game to use the lavatory,

came back with a wrap around his lower back with 9:56 left in the second quarter,

and finally checked back in before leaving the game permanently at 8:33.

Before getting hurt, Antetokounmpo recorded six points, three rebounds, and two made shots in 11 minutes of play.
