Milwaukee Bucks PF Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will play in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday after suffering a hyperextended left knee during the Eastern Conference Finals, per Shams Charania. (Shams Charania on Twitter)
Giannis will play in Game 1 on Tuesday after progressing from doubtful to questionable earlier in the day. Milwaukee will need his size and aggressiveness in the paint to counter Phoenix Suns C De'Andre Ayton and PF Jae Crowder. Antetokounmpo has not played since a Game 4 loss against the Atlanta Hawks, where he yielded 14 points, eight rebounds, and three assists across 24 minutes.
