Sources: Giannis cleared; optimism he’ll play

NBA

After clearing the NBA’s health and safety protocols, there’s optimism that Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo will be in the lineup against the Boston Celtics on Saturday, sources told ESPN.

Antetokounmpo, the reigning NBA Finals MVP, planned to get on the court Friday for a workout. He will make a decision on Saturday’s game before the 2:30 p.m. ET start on ABC, sources told ESPN.

In the protocols and unable to work out since Dec. 14, Antetokounmpo has significant basketball inactivity to overcome in a 24-hour window.

Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 27.0 points, 11.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game this season, has missed the Bucks’ past five games.
