Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo may be available once again in a potential Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks. According to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, there’s a “belief” that former two-time MVP “would be given the green light” to play if the Hawks win in Game 6 and thus force a sixth match in the series.

Antetokounmpo exited Game 4 with a left knee injury that appeared to be scary. The MRI revealed that the Greek Freak hyperextended his knee and there was no structural damage, much to the Bucks‘ relief.

Milwaukee defeated the Hawks 123 – 112 in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead. Atlanta is now hosting Game 6 Saturday.
