Kevin Durant, Nets get Jeff Green back for Game 4
According to Malika Andrews of ESPN, Jeff Green has been cleared to play in Game 4 as the Nets aim to go up 3-1 over the Bucks in the series and push closer to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Jeff Green is available for Game 4 vs. Milwaukee this afternoon, the Nets say. It will be the first time he has played since May 25 (Game 2 vs. Boston).

Still, the return of Green is a huge plus for Brooklyn. Green has been out since May 25 and has been a key rotational piece for Steve Nash’s squad all season long and his absence has forced the Nets to dive a little bit deeper into their bench.
The Nets seemed in total control of the series after winning the first two games in Brooklyn and a 39-point drubbing in Game 2. However, Game 3 was completely opposite as neither team scored more than 100 points and the Bucks walked away with the victory after a Jrue Holiday game-winner.
Now the Nets will try and claim a 3-1 lead and avoid the Bucks from tying the series. As they await news on James Harden who barely played in Game 1 of the series, they at least get good news regarding Jeff Green as their quest for an NBA title continues.
