Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will play in Game 4 against Miami Heat

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will play in Game 4 of the team's second-round series with the Miami Heat.

Antetokounmpo was listed as questionable with a right ankle sprain, which he suffered in Milwaukee's Game 3 loss on Saturday. According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Antetokounmpo said after the game that his ankle wasn't bothering him, although he was seen "severely limping" when he left the arena.

After going through shootaround prior to Game 4's tip-off, the reigning league MVP has decided he will play with his team's season on the line.

Through three games against the Heat, Antetokounmpo is averaging 22.7 points, 13.3 rebounds and 7.0 assists. He's struggled with efficiency, shooting 45.1 percent from the field, 15.4 percent from 3-point range and 54.1 percent from the free throw line.

Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to the best record in the league during the regular season, posting 29.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. He was recently named this season's Defensive Player of the Year and is a finalist for Most Valuable Player.

Game 4 is a must-win for the Bucks, as they currently trail the Heat 3-0 in the series.
