Y DNA to find father

Male looking for bio father. Common descendent is probable grandmother or great grandmother. Will the Y dna from the uncle still match the possible nephew?

Males receive their Y-Chromosome from their father who receives from their father etc. It will not pass from a male to a female or a female to a male. So if the nephew is tested against a biological paternal uncle then yes they will match, a maternal uncle no.
