Tonight’s clash between Bucks and Nets (9:30 p.m.) should take place with Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks have just changed the status of their best player to “probable” for this promising to be explosive encounter between two of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference.

The comeback is good news for Mike Budenholzer, who was worried that his leader was staying too long in the hospital wing. The two-time MVP injured his ankle on Thursday, in the first minute of the game in Houston.

The Greek missed the match the next day, on the floor of the Bulls, won despite everything by his team. “He’s progressing well,” said his coach after the match. “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow (Saturday) morning. We have another day of care and work. We’ll see what happens with Sunday’s game. ”

Giannis Antetokounmpo shouldn’t be the only returning superstar for this comeback. The New York Post reports that Kevin Durant will also be in the game. The latter was spared and did not play against the Blazers due to discomfort in his left hamstring.

“He wanted to play (against Portland), so I had to kill off and tell him that wasn’t possible. But he’s feeling good and he’s improving, and I’m very happy about that, “reported Steve Nash.

Note that Bucks (39v-24d) and Nets (43v-21d) meet this Sunday, then Tuesday again, still in Milwaukee. A double victory for the Wisconsin men would likely shake up the hierarchy at the top of the East.
