Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will play for Milwaukee in Game 1
MIlwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been cleared to play in the team's game against the Phoenix Suns, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Antetokounmpo missed the last few games of the Eastern Conference Finals due to a hyperextended knee, but it seems as though he'll be good to go for Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Finals. Expect Bobby Portis to revert to a bench role with this news.
