The NBA Finals are already set as the Milwaukee Bucks will battle the Phoenix Suns in best of 7 series.

Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said that Giannis Antetokounmpo will be "day-to-day" for the NBA Finals.

Giannis suffered a hyperextended knee in a play during game 4 in Atlanta.

Jon Horst added that any decision on Antetokounmpo's availability will be made with the sports performance team, and that he was "dying to be out there" for Games 5 and 6.

Giannis could reportedly play in game 7 of Eastern Conference Finals had the Hawks avoid elimination in game 6 but the Bucks already pulled out the win in Atlanta to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974.

Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Finals will be on Tuesday, July 6, 9:00pm ET in Phoenix.
