Forward Jeff Green will be available to play Sunday in Game 4 of the visiting Brooklyn Nets' second-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Green, 34, has not played since May 25, when he left the Nets' 130-108 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of their first-round series with a left plantar fascia strain. Green averaged 4.5 points in the opening two games against the Celtics.

In 68 regular-season games in his first campaign with the Nets, Green averaged 11 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists on 49.2 percent shooting from the floor, including a career-best 41.2 percent from three-point range.

The fifth overall pick of the 2007 NBA Draft by the Celtics, Green was immediately traded to the then-Seattle SuperSonics and has played for 10 teams in his 13-year NBA career. In 976 career regular-season games, Green has averaged 12.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists while shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 34 percent from beyond the arc.

In other injury news, James Harden remains out for Game 4 against the Bucks with a right hamstring injury. Harden has not played since suffering the injury 43 seconds into Game 1, which the Nets won, 115-107.
