Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been upgraded to questionable for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, according to the NBA’s official injury report, via ESPN.
Antetokounmpo was listed as “doubtful” late on Monday even though Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer told reporters Antetokounmpo “was able to do some on-court work separately from the team’s afternoon practice,” according to ESPN.
The star forward and two-time MVP missed the last two games of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks after he hyperextended his left knee in Game 4.
The Bucks visit Chris Paul and the Suns in Phoenix for Game 1. Tip-off is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET.
