Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo upgraded to questionable for Game 1 vs Suns

·2-min read

Milwaukee has upgraded Giannis Antetokounmpo from doubtful to questionable on their latest injury report, meaning there's a chance Bucks fans could see their star take the floor for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.

Antetokounmpo hasn't played since he hyperextended his left knee in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks. There were fears that there was structural damage to his knee, which would mean a long absence from the playoffs (and from basketball in general), so the hyperextension news was a relief — especially since it meant that he could be back sooner rather than later.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Malika Andrews, Antetokounmpo has been receiving around-the-clock treatment on his knee. Whether or not he'll play will be a game-time decision.

The Bucks beat the Hawks without Antetokounmpo, but they'll want as much firepower as possible against the Phoenix Suns, who have pretty much demolished their competition for most of the playoffs. Phoenix is a -5.5 favorite to win Game 1, according to BetMGM.
