Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo (lower back) exits early against Heat

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo was ruled out for the remainder of Game 1 against the Miami Heat with a lower back contusion, the team announced.

After picking up his second foul on a charge taken by Heat forward Kevin Love with 1:46 remaining in the first quarter, Antetokounmpo checked out of Sunday's game and immediately headed toward the locker room. He emerged with tape around his lower back to begin the second quarter and returned to the game with 9:56 left in the second.

However, Antetokounmpo did not attempt a shot during his next stint on the court and appeared hobbled while trying to run up the court in transition.
