Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng will start in the bot lane for Team Liquid on Sunday in their NA LCS Spring Split finals match against 100 Thieves.

Liquid's owner, Steve Arhancet confirmed the news on Twitter.

There have been questions surrounding Doublelift's availability all week following the news that his brother had allegedly killed his mother and injured his father this past weekend. Yihong Peng was subsequently arrested and booked on charges of murder.

Peng appeared in court Tuesday, where he had his bail increased from $1 million to $2 million. He remains in custody.

Doublelift has been dominant thus far in the playoffs and was instrumental in their semifinal victory over Echo Fox last weekend. Liquid and 100 Thieves split their regular season series 1-1.
