The Brooklyn Nets are in the middle of a tight playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks, but they will get some help from a veteran depth player returning to the active roster. The team recently got some good news regarding forward Jeff Green's latest injury update.

Green has been declared active for the team's Game 4 matchup against the Bucks on Sunday afternoon after working through a left plantar fascia strain. The veteran big man has missed the last six games since being removed from play in Game 2 of the Nets' Round 1 series.

The 34-year-old playmaker has been a leader on this team throughout the season and has averaged 11.0 points per game this season. He also ranks second amongst Brooklyn players in games played (68) and is shooting a career-high 41.2% from 3-point range.

The Nets will also benefit from having another player capable of defending Giannis Antetokounmpo in the paint. However, Green likely won't be looking at a heavy workload as the team works him back into the rotation. He could bring a spark to the lineup during his playing time, though.

Brooklyn is a -134 moneyline favorite over the Bucks in Game 4 and remain the favorite to win the NBA Championship as well with odds set at +125, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
