Jared Dudley said that there was an 80-90 percent chance he comes back with the Bucks next season, even if he decides to opt out of his contract.
Dudley has a player option worth $4.25 million for the 2015-16 season, but it sounds like he'll be back in Milwaukee regardless of whether he opts out of his contract. Dudley said that he enjoys helping the younger guys on the roster, and he'd like to come back and continue building what they started this season. However, for fantasy purposes, Dudley will be a non-option in most leagues after averaging a meager 7.2 points, 1.0 steal and 1.0 three-pointer per game through the 2014-15 season. May 1 - 2:03 PM

Jared Dudley played 29 minutes off the bench during a 92-90 Game 4 victory over the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 13 points with two rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

Jared hit Jerryd Bayless for a backdoor layup on an inbounds pass to get the Bucks a buzzer-beater to win it. It was a slightly dangerous pass, but Dudley deserves a lot of credit for executing it perfectly. The Bucks second unit was great with 47 points, which was more than the starters' 45. The Bucks also capitalized on the Bulls' 28 turnovers with 39 points off those mistakes. As for Dudley's extra playing time, he earned his minutes from Ersan Ilyasova, who scored just nine points on 3-of-11 from the field in 17 minutes. Both could wind up being around 24 minutes in Game 5 on Monday.

Jared Dudley is dealing with some foot soreness and will play against the Bulls in Game 3 on Thursday.

He's dealt with knee and back issues since the All-Star break and this foot issue has bothered him since Game 1. Dudley played 14.5 minutes per game in the first two games of the playoffs, making a combined 2-of-8 from the field. He'll likely be around that amount of playing time again.
Apr 22 - 4:52 PM

Jared Dudley will play against the Bulls on Monday.

He was listed as probable, but coach Jason Kidd said he can play. Kidd also said rebounding was very important today, so maybe the Bucks won't go with a lineup of Michael Carter-Williams, Jerryd Bayless and O.J. Mayo. Dudley has very little fantasy value.

Jared Dudley (back) will play on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

The Bucks rested him for the final two games of the season, so he should be fresh for the playoffs. Dudley is a seasoned veteran, and his experience will be a huge boost for the young Bucks. Expect Dudley to see minutes in the mid 20s tonight.
Apr 18 - 11:46 AM

Jared Dudley (back), and Jerryd Bayless (neck) practiced on Thursday.

Dudley missed the final two games of the regular-season with a sore back, while Bayless missed the regular-season finale with a sore neck. Neither of these injuries sounds serious, so these guys should be ready for Game 1 against the Bulls on Saturday. That being said, both players will likely have their minutes trimmed down a bit for the postseason, and they're unlikely to do much on the stat sheet with the guys ahead of them in the rotation fully healthy.
Apr 16 - 5:27 PM

Jared Dudley sat out for a second straight game due to a sore back in Wednesday's finale against the Celtics.

However, he's expected to be ready to go for the Bucks in the playoffs, which start Saturday against the Bulls.
Apr 16 - 12:40 AM

Jared Dudley will rest against the Celtics on Wednesday.

There could be more rested players on the way for the Bucks. Plus, the Bucks will likely limit some of their guys.
Apr 15 - 6:22 PM

Jared Dudley went scoreless in 28 minutes off Milwaukee's bench on Sunday, and Jason Kidd said after the game that Dudley will likely rest on Monday and Wednesday.

He's been struggling with back and knee issues lately, which helps to explain his 0-of-4 shooting on Sunday, and it makes sense for the Bucks to rest him with the No. 6 seed locked up. His absence should open up more minutes for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and even O.J. Mayo.
Apr 12 - 5:49 PM

Jared Dudley will start for the Bucks against the Cavs on Wednesday.

Interesting. Coach Jason Kidd just said he's looking for a change. Maybe he doesn't want to start Giannis Antetokounmpo against LeBron James or maybe it's something else. Regardless, Dudley is not a reliable option in fantasy leagues tonight.
Apr 8 - 6:33 PM

Jared Dudley is determined to keep fighting through back pain in order to help the Bucks reach the playoffs.

Dudley has now played in four out of the last five games and was able to score 10 points with four assists , two steals and two boards in a win over the Celtics on Friday. "It's an injury that takes like three to five weeks to heal, and my whole thing is just can I heat up," Dudley said. "I'm good when I'm out there; I don't feel it. My whole thing is when I get stiff, when I'm out of the game. When I travel it's tough for me." It sounds like Dudley won't be 100 percent for the rest of the season, and it's certainly possible that the Bucks give him another game off to rest down the stretch. Owners in standard leagues should avoid him.
Apr 4 - 10:40 AM

Jared Dudley played 17 minutes on Wednesday with one point, three rebounds, three assists and two steals against the Bulls.

He's been dealing with back and knee issues since the break, which are probably two areas most associated with lingering as the year goes on. Dudley hasn't played well these days anyway, so keep him on the wire.
Apr 2 - 1:40 AM

Jared Dudley (knee, back) will play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He's had back and knee issues in the past two weeks, so we're not expecting him to get significant playing time. Dudley can be left on the wire in all leagues.
Apr 1 - 6:18 PM

Jared Dudley would like to re-sign with the Bucks after the season.

Excited by the youth infusion in Milwaukee and the leadership of Jason Kidd, Dudley is in a good place as a veteran leader on an up-and-coming team. Dudley did say he'd be willing to take less money on a multi-year deal, but it's too early to say whether or not the two sides will work something out.
Mar 30 - 9:45 AM

Jared Dudley (back) confirmed that he'll be ready to play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

"I'm 100% fine," he wrote on Twitter. "Just being pre cautious, I'll be ready [Wednesday]." This is excellent news for Bucks fans and any deep-league owners who have Dudley on their bench. He has had spurts of sustained value this year but is too risky for use in most leagues given the recurring nature of his back injury.
