Report: Giannis cleared from NBA's health and safety protocols
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Bucks are getting an early Christmas present, with two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo reportedly clearing the NBA's health and safety protocols.
The MVP has been out of action for the last 10 days, so it is still very possible he will not play in Saturday's Christmas Day showcase against the Celtics.
The team will make the decision before tipoff.
Giannis is in the middle of another monster season, averaging nearly 27 points, 12 rebounds and six assists per game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been cleared from health and safety protocols; he's expected to get on the court today and decide tomorrow whether to play on Christmas against the Boston Celtics, sources tell @wojespn and me.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) December 24, 2021
