He scored all 15 points in the first half and disappeared after that. Bayless does have some stash appeal with some trade rumors popping up on Michael Carter-Williams, but it's only for deeper leagues right now. Feb 6 - 1:16 AM

Jerryd Bayless scored 16 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with five assists, one board, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Michael Carter-Williams was poor in this one with just two points and two assists in 26 minutes, so this could be a position battle to watch moving forward now that the Bucks have lost four straight games. Bayless is averaging 8.6 points, 3.4 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games, and he's only worth a speculative add in deeper leagues unless coach Jason Kidd decides to shake up his lineup.
Feb 3 - 1:04 AM

Jerryd Bayless played 30 minutes off the bench and had 12 points, five rebounds, one assist, a steal and three 3-pointers on 3-of-9 shooting on Tuesday.

Michael Carter-Williams is still starting, but Bayless could be ready to make some noise again. He was struggling prior to this one though, and will have to get 25-30 minutes a night in order to be worth adding in fantasy, but just keep an eye on him. Jason Kidd is back on the bench for the Bucks and likes Bayless.
Jan 27 - 12:00 AM

Jerryd Bayless played 30 minutes and hit 4-of-7 shots for 11 points, three rebounds, three assists, and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's 91-79 win over the Heat.

He played 22 minutes in his return on Saturday and didn't do much, but he got five more minutes than Michael Carter-Williams tonight. MCW still has the upper hand in this relationship, but it's possible that Bayless could steal his job at any time. MCW is still the player to own and start right now, but if you're desperate at point guard, picking up and stashing Bayless could pay off later.
Jan 19 - 10:23 PM

Jerryd Bayless made his return after missing six games, scoring three points with two rebounds, six assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

He played almost all of his minutes at point guard and that will likely continue. Bayless did have a nice run back in December and even drew some starts, but Michael Carter-Williams is playing much better these days. Fantasy owners can keep him on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 16 - 9:39 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) will play against the Hornets on Saturday.

The Bucks could use him after an overtime game on Friday, but his minutes will likely only be around 20 after missing the last six games. He should only be considered as a low-end add in deeper leagues right now.
Jan 16 - 5:43 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is probable to play against the Hornets on Saturday.

He's missed the last six games and should be able to back up Michael Carter-Williams. Bayless' return would likely push Tyler Ennis out of the rotation. He could have value in deep leagues, but there's no need to be aggressive in picking him up.
Jan 16 - 5:08 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) will not play vs. the Hawks on Friday.

The Bucks have been predictably mum about the severity of Bayless' injury or a timetable for his return, and there's no incentive to stash him in standard leagues. This will be his sixth straight DNP after aggravating a left ankle injury, and the first time he hurt himself it cost him 11 games.
Jan 15 - 6:35 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.

With O.J. Mayo (hamstring) headed for a game-time call on Tuesday, Tyler Ennis could earn limited minutes off the bench. The Bucks will start Michael Carter-Williams, Khris Middleton, Giannis Anteotkounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe on Tuesday. Bayless is currently without an official timetable to return, so he's not a must-own guy in standard formats.

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) will not play vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

He doesn't have a timetable to return and the Bucks won't bring him back until he is 100 percent. With O.J. Mayo (hamstring) also out, Tyler Ennis could log a few minutes as the backup point guard.
Jan 10 - 7:08 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Friday.

Bayless missed 11 games the first time he injured his left ankle, and this will be his second DNP after aggravating the injury vs. San Antonio on Monday. Hopefully his absence won't be as long this time, but the severity isn't yet known. His absence leaves more opportunities for O.J. Mayo and Tyler Ennis, with Michael Carter-Williams playing all the minutes he can handle.
Jan 8 - 6:36 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Bulls.

This is the same ankle that forced him to miss 11 games earlier this season, so he could be looking at another lengthy absence. It's also worth noting that Bayless was wearing a walking boot on his ankle on Monday. Michael Carter-Williams will log heavy minutes as the starting point guard, while O.J. Mayo and Tyler Ennis are expected to back him up. Unless you're in a deep league, Bayless' owners should evaluate other options, especially considering he is wearing a walking boot.

Jerryd Bayless injured his left ankle and will not be able to return to Monday's game vs. the Spurs.

Not good. This is the same ankle that forced him to miss 11 games in December. Bayless' owners should wait for an update before moving on, but he could be looking at another lengthy absence. Michael Carter-Williams will log heavy minutes in the meantime, while O.J. Mayo and Tyler Ennis could play a little more as well.
Jan 4 - 8:56 PM

Jerryd Bayless scored 14 points in 25 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday, adding two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers.

He did play minutes at both guard spots tonight. Bayless' minutes dropped to 20 on Tuesday, but it might have been because he was just returning and playing a back to back. He's more of a 16-team guy until further notice.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 08:53:00 PM

Jerryd Bayless came off the bench and played 20 minutes on Tuesday, finishing with eight points, four assists and a 3-pointer on 3-of-6 shooting.

Bayless was nice on Monday with 19 points after missing several weeks with an ankle injury, but Michael Carter-Williams nearly triple-doubled in tonight's start. Bayless is a fine player to grab off waivers right now, but it looks like he'll be locked into a timeshare with MCW as long as both of them are healthy. And if MCW stays hot, Bayless may continue to come off the bench for now.
