The Milwaukee Bucks will receive a boost to their lineup on Sunday. Their star, Giannis Antetokounmpo, has officially been cleared to play against the San Antonio Spurs.

He missed the team’s game against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. He’s been dealing with a sprained right ankle.

At the time, there was no official timetable for his return.

He was considered a game-time decision, but he’ll be a starter in the game.

He only missed one game with his injury. However, he may be limited in regards to his playing time, as the Bucks may work him back into the lineup slowly.

The game he missed against the Bulls on March 22nd was the first-time he missed a game since Jan. 20 and Jan. 22 when he missed games against the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and a home contest against the Phoenix Suns.

In addition to Antetokounmpo returning, the team will also have Jabari Parker back off of the bench.

The 23-year-old “Greek Freak” has missed several games this season due to injury. He last played on March 21st against the Los Angeles Clippers when he scored 12 points in 17 minutes.

He last played in nearly a full contest on March 19th against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He had 37 points in 39 minutes.

In 67 games this season, he’s averaging 27.3 points, 10 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game.
