NBA

Milwaukee Bucks two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has cleared the NBA’s health and safety protocols and could play Christmas Day against the Boston Celtics, 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 prior to 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, had missed the Bucks’ past five games.
