Jerryd Bayless (sore neck) and Jared Dudley (back) will play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.
Bayless missed Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. the Celtics because of his sore neck, but he has since returned to practice and was never in danger of missing this contest. He averages over 22 minutes per game off the bench, and his return will likely push rookie Tyler Ennis out of the rotation. Apr 18 - 11:46 AM

Jerryd Bayless played 37 minutes off the Bucks' bench on Tuesday, finishing with 10 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a rare block.

His recent ankle injury is obviously no longer a concern, but owners shouldn't expect a repeat performance vs. the Pacers on Thursday -- Bayless was averaging 4.0 points in his past two games and his minutes were inflated with Michael Carter-Williams in foul trouble all night.
Mar 24 - 11:10 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) posted 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes off the Bucks' bench on Tuesday.

He was questionable to play but wound up giving the Bucks much-needed backcourt production, as both Jared Dudley (knee) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) were back in Milwaukee receiving treatment. Bayless is worth a look for low-end production if both of those players are ruled out again on Wednesday.
Mar 17 - 11:00 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is playing vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

Bayless has missed the previous three games but was able to return to practice on Monday, so there are no surprises here. The Bucks didn't feel the need to update his status prior to the game, so it appears that his ankle should be fine moving forward. That being said, Bayless is not an option in standard leagues at the moment.
Mar 17 - 8:17 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) returned to practice on Monday.

Bayless has been out since March 9, but it seems like he'll be ready to return on Tuesday. That's good news with Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) still nursing an injury and Tyler Ennis exposed in his temporary role as Milwaukee's starting point guard.
Mar 16 - 1:25 PM

Updating a previous report, Jerryd Bayless will not play vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, and considering that he was expected to play tonight, it's possible that he is looking at some additional time on the sidelines. With Jared Dudley (back) and Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) also out, rookie Tyler Ennis will be very busy tonight.
Mar 14 - 8:07 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is likely to play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

Bayless has been sidelined for the past two games, but the Bucks will be thrilled to have him back on their bench. However, Bayless is averaging just 8.1 points and 3.0 assists this season, and he won't be in the standard league conversation unless a couple of injuries strike Milwaukee's backcourt.
Mar 14 - 6:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Jerry Bayless (ankle) made it through shootaround is now a game-time decision to play vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

It's a good sign that he made it through shootaround after sitting out the past two games, but his owners should wait for official confirmation before activating him in any lineups. That being said, with averages of 8.1 points and 3.0 assists this season, owners in standard leagues can do much better. Expect Tyler Ennis, Chris Johnson and Jared Dudley to be in the mix for more minutes if Bayless or O.J. Mayo (hamstring) sit this one out.

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Bayless has missed the last two games due to his ankle sprain, so his owners will have to check back prior to tip-off before setting their lineups. If Bayless remains on the shelf tonight, more minutes will be available for Tyler Ennis and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) off the bench.
Mar 14 - 1:04 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pacers.

Tyler Ennis will likely soak up most of Bayless' reserve minutes, but with averages of just 5.2 points and 1.8 assists per game on 40.0 percent shooting from the field with Milwaukee, Ennis can't be considered a viable option in most leagues.
Mar 12 - 5:42 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

He has done a nice job of playing minutes at both guard spots and logged 23.0 minutes per game in his last three. Tyler Ennis will likely get a few more minutes behind Michael Carter-Williams, but he's not a fantasy option. O.J. Mayo could play tonight, but he is a very risky option.
Mar 11 - 6:25 PM

Jerryd Bayless scored 12 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 5-of-14 shots (including a three) with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes.

The minutes are what's interesting here and that's before you get to Jerryd Bayless' ailing knee. He didn't produce a lot tonight and O.J. Mayo was out, but there's enough going for Bayless for owners to give him a look.
Feb 28 - 4:34 AM

Jerryd Bayless played 30 minutes during a 104-88 win over the 76ers on Wednesday with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

With O.J. Mayo (rest) out and Michael Carter-Williams only playing 18 minutes, there was a lot of playing time up for grabs for Bayless tonight. However, he will likely start seeing his minutes fall to the mid-20s in short order. In his last five, he averaged 9.4 points, 4.2 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 treys. His numbers will likely be in that neighborhood going forward.
Feb 26 - 12:00 AM

Jerryd Bayless drew another start on Monday against the Bulls, scoring eight points on 4-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

Michael Carter-Williams (foot) sounds like he will play against his old Sixers squad on Wednesday, so that will put a serious damper on Bayless' short-term value. Over the long-term, MCW isn't exactly known for his durability and owners will want to keep a close eye on Bayless or even see how things play out this week.
Feb 23 - 10:52 PM

Jerryd Bayless started again on Sunday and scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting, adding one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

Michael Carter-Williams (foot) is day-to-day but he could miss a few more games, giving Bayless a temporary window to produce as a starter. He'll drop off instantly once MCW returns, however, so owners should get attached to the 26-year-old journeyman.
