TAMPA, Fla. -- Robert Griffin III tweeted the good news. Its simply no

TAMPA, Fla. -- Robert Griffin III tweeted the good news. Its simply not official yet. The Washington quarterback was cleared Thursday by his surgeon to be under centre when the regular season opens for the Redskins on Sept. 9. However, coach Mike Shanahan hedged after a preseason-ending 30-12 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Theres a couple of concerns that he has," Shanahan said to reporters. "Ill talk to Robert over the weekend, and Ill let you guys know on Monday." The Redskins did not make Griffin available to answers questions. His teammates, however, expect the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year to start against Philadelphia. "Thats just the type of player Robert is, just his will and determination to be back on that field. Im not surprised, and Im looking forward to him coming out and having a good game," running back Alfred Morris said. Fourth-stringer Pat White threw for 181 yards, set up a touchdown with a 66-yard completion to Dezmon Briscoe, and also ran for a TD to help the Redskins finish the preseason 4-0 for the first time in 28 years. Shanahan rested most of his starters, including Griffin, who worked out at Raymond James Stadium for about 30 minutes before walking off the field with Dr. James Andrews. Andrews was in town to examine the quarterbacks surgically repaired right knee. Griffin, whos been practicing without any reported setbacks, participated in the coin toss as a Redskins captain and watched the game from the sideline. When it ended, he tweeted: "Operation Patience complete: cleared." "It definitely aids us when we have him coming back with us, but even if he wasnt able to be back Week 1, we have Kirk Cousins, we have Rex (Grossman) and we have Pat (White)," Morris said. "Those guys are able to make plays as well. But it definitely helps us knowing our starting quarterback is going to be back." Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman also sat out the finale, as did Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis, whos recovering from knee surgery that sidelined him most of last season with the New York Jets. With backup Kirk Cousins out with a sprained right foot, White played the entire game for the Redskins. Safety Brandon Meriweather started and played the opening half for Washington, seeing his first game action since November, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the only game he played. The Redskins are counting on him to shore up a weakness in their secondary. "He was fine," Shanahan said. "I thought he played well, and its nice to get him back in the lineup." Meriweather wasnt credited with any tackles, but said "it felt good to run around, to actually hit somebody besides my own teammates. ... It felt good just to be out there, period." Evan Royster rushed for 59 yards and a touchdown in his bid to win a job as a backup running back. Another young running back vying to make the roster, rookie Chris Thompson, scored on a 69-yard punt return. Tampa Bay (1-3) finished a mostly unimpressive preseason with another sloppy performance. With a healthy Freeman looking ahead to the Bucs season opener against the Jets, third-round draft pick Mike Glennon played like a rookie in completing 7 of 16 passes for 63 yards and one interception. He also lost a fumble when the ball appeared to just slip out of his hand before his arm began moving forward to throw. "Tonight is the first time he looked like a rookie. He struggled a little bit," Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said. "Thats not just him, obviously, but Im sure when he watches this hell say he wishes he had done this and done that." Linebacker Najee Goode scored Tampa Bays only touchdown, returning a second-quarter interception 37 yards. Derek Dimke missed the extra point, hitting the right upright -- one of several sloppy moments for the Bucs, who turned the ball over twice while falling behind 27-6 at the half. Dan Orlovsky replaced Glennon late in the third quarter and led a field goal drive for Tampa Bay, which sputtered offensively throughout the preseason. In three exhibitions, Freeman was 12 of 26 for 101 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked nine times.

"We won that game because of Tony Parkers aggressiveness," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

The Nets have won the last two to force this decisive game at the Barclays Center. Watch the game on TSN2 starting at 8pm et/5pm pt. Also available on TSN Mobile TV "Its going to be whose will takes over the game," said Chicagos Carlos Boozer. After the Bulls grinded out a triple-overtime thriller in Chicago for Game 4, the Nets responded. They pulled away from the Bulls in the fourth quarter in Game 5, then managed to get a victory over a depleted Chicago team on Thursday. The Bulls have been without Kirk Hinrich since Game 4 because of a calf injury. His availability for Game 7 is unknown, but its been reported he wont play. In Game 6, the Bulls, who have been without former MVP Derrick Rose all season and postseason, were ravaged by the flu. Luol Deng couldnt get cleared to play and Taj Gibson and Nate Robinson were clearly hampered. Deng will also miss Game 7. "A couple of times I felt like throwing up during the game, but you really cant call timeout for that," said Robinson, who sat in front of a bucket when he wasnt on the floor. "I didnt know if theyd call a foul on me if I threw up on Deron (Williams). Ill have to check the rule book on that one." Robinson gutted out 18 points and played almost 42 minutes. Jimmy Butler played the whole 48 minutes and netted 17 points and Marco Belinelli logged almost 47 minutes and paced the Bulls with 22 points. Joakim Noah is still battling plantar fascitis, but went more than 43 minutes. He posted 14 ppoints, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots.dddddddddddd "Were a team of fighters. We keep getting punched in the face but we fight back," said Noah. "Im proud of this team. Were going to go into a hostile environment in Brooklyn and were going to win." Bold proclamations aside, the Bulls dont have a great record in Game 7s. Theyve played nine Game 7s and lost all six theyve played on the road. Brooklyn worked all season to earn the home-court advantage and it might pay off on Saturday, although the Bulls took Game 2 at the Barclays Center. "Things are looking a lot better for us than they did when we were leaving here last Saturday," said Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo. "It is fortunate for us that our guys have earned home court. There is no guarantee, but I would rather be there." Williams, Joe Johnson, who is also battling plantar fascitis, and Brook Lopez led the way for the Nets in Game 6 with 17 points apiece. Williams also handed out 11 assists. Gerald Wallace chipped in 15 points, but also air-balled a free throw and a layup. Andray Blatche was huge for the Nets on Thursday. He made three foul shots with under 32 seconds to go to preserve the victory. Since the Nets joined the NBA in the 1976-77 season, theyve only played one Game 7 -- a loss to the Pistons in Detroit in the 2004 Eastern Conference semifinals. The winner of this series will meet the defending champion Miami Heat on Monday night. "We have a lot of heart. We are a very resilient team," said Carlesimo. "That is also true for the Bulls. Its been a pretty good series when you can get it to a seventh game." It is.
