Antetokounmpo suffered the injury after chasing down Bulls guard Coby White on a fast break, blocking White’s shot. But Antetokounmpo then fell into the stanchion holding the basket and began clutching his wrist.

Depending on the severity of the sprain, the two-time NBA MVP very well could be out for Sunday’s All-Star Game in Utah. If he is out, commissioner Adam Silver will need to quickly pick a replacement.

Suns forward Kevin Durant and Warriors guard Steph Curry are other All-Star starters who are currently sidelined with injuries.
