Kostas Antetokounmpo has been away from the Lakers during the playoffs, and his absence is due to a personal matter.
ESPN reported on Sunday about Antetokounmpo’s situation. While it didn’t provide details on his personal matter, the outlet says he has been in Greece.
There is no current timetable for his return, but the Lakers hope he will be able to rejoin them if the Lakers advance.
The 23-year-old is in his second season with the Lakers. He has played minimal minutes in 15 games, totaling 12 points and 19 rebounds over that time. Kostas won the championship with the Lakers last year, giving him a leg up on his MVP-winning brother, Giannis.
