Greivis Vasquez turned in one of his best games of the season in a loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with two rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
He was a disaster in his previous three, averaging 3.7 points, 2.3 boards, and 3.3 assists in that span. It might be too little too late for Vasquez here because Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) should be back this weekend. If you picked him up, expect his minutes and production to dip a bit in the near future. Nov 12 - 12:09 AM

Greivis Vasquez is not concerned with his early season shooting struggles.

"Imagine when my shot starts falling? It's really going to help our team tremendously," said Vasquez. "I've been through these struggles before. I was in the right spots, I'm adjusting to a good system and now I'm seeing how this is going to work." Vasquez is currently connecting on just 22.4 percent of his shot attempts, but with 60.4 percent of those attempts being open looks, it should only be a matter of time until his shot starts to drop. While Vasquez does have some deep league appeal, as a reserve for the Bucks, he’s not worth a roster spot in standard formats.
Nov 8 - 3:12 PM

Greivis Vasquez logged 31 minutes off the bench with Michael Carter-Williams out on Friday, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists and one block.

Vasquez should be considered a risky plug-and-play for however long MCW is out with his ankle injury. Jerryd Bayless (five points, four assists, one steal) saw 28 minutes in his move to the bench and is a cut below Vasquez at this time.
Nov 7 - 12:05 AM

Greivis Vasquez got into foul trouble against the 76ers on Wednesday, finishing with 22 minutes, 11 points, one rebound, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He was 4-of-12 from the field, but the Bucks were clearly better when he was on the court tonight. Vasquez did play down the stretch at the point more than Jerryd Bayless, so maybe coach Jason Kidd leans on GV more on Friday against the Knicks, assuming Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) is out.
Nov 5 - 12:18 AM

Greivis Vasquez will still come off the bench against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Only MCW and Vasquez have handled the point guard minutes this season, so this is a new frontier. Vasquez was already playing 24.5 minutes per game, so he should have no problem getting into the mid-30s. With the Bucks starting Jerryd Bayless, it should only be Bayless and GV getting the point guard minutes as long as they're not in foul trouble. Whatever the case, DFS owners will be all over Bayless and GV tonight.
Nov 4 - 6:28 PM

Greivis Vasquez will start against the Pistons on Saturday.

He'll join Michael Carter-Williams, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greg Monroe in the first unit. Coach Jason Kidd has talked about using GV at the two, which is fine considering his length and better shooting than MCW. He's still not worth roster spot in most leagues, though.
Oct 10 - 6:57 PM

Jason Kidd said Greivis Vasquez will spend time at both point guard and shooting guard this season.

The Bucks have a ton of versatility on the roster, and Kidd is going to take advantage. Jerryd Bayless is also expected to spend time at both guard spots, and Kidd will keep experimenting throughout the preseason—and probably into the regular season—in order to find the right mix. Kidd likes Vasquez's size, and at 6'6", it's easy to see why he will be playing both backcourt positions.
Oct 5 - 9:45 AM

Greivis Vasquez said it's "a possibility" he starts at point guard for the Bucks.

"Michael [Carter-Williams] is a really good point guard too," Vasquez said. The Bucks really need a shooter to go along with Greg Monroe and their young guys, so you could argue Vasquez is the better fit than MCW. Regardless, Vasquez looks like he's set for 20-24 minutes to start, which puts him on the map in deeper leagues.
Jul 2 - 9:10 PM

Jason Kidd said that he liked the addition of Greivis Vasquez to the roster, and said he envisions playing Vasquez and Michael Carter-Williams alongside one another.

"You can play both of those guys together," Kidd said. "I wouldn't be against that. I think it could help us." Vasquez will likely come off the bench in Milwaukee, so he's not likely to be much more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Jun 26 - 1:52 PM

Greivis Vasquez has been traded to the Bucks in exchange for a 2017 first-round pick and the No. 46 pick of the 2015 draft.

It's a steep price for GV, but this pick is lottery protected. The Bucks really needed a backup point guard throughout the year, so Vasquez solves that problem. He figures to get around 24 minutes, but won't have much fantasy value.
Jun 25 - 9:05 PM

The Timberwolves and Rockets are interested in Greivis Vasquez.

Vasquez revealed the news at a press conference in Venezuela, and it's pretty interesting since GV is under contract for one more season with the Raptors. Perhaps that's a sign that Toronto is interested in moving on, but Vasquez did add that he hopes to remain in T-Dot.
Jun 22 - 12:29 PM

Greivis Vasquez started at SG in place of DeMar DeRozan (rest) on Tuesday, notching 11 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 32 minutes vs. the Celtics.

Toronto has secured home-court advantage for the first round of the playoffs, which made DeRozan's rest day unsurprising. He may still return for Wednesday's season finale, during which the Raptors can set a new franchise record for wins in a season, so owners should double-check the injury report before committing to Vasquez.
Apr 14 - 10:39 PM

Greivis Vasquez will slide into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics with DeMar DeRozan (rest) unavailable.

In 28 starts this season he's averaging 10.9 points on 43.4 percent shooting, 1.9 triples, 3.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 0.6 steals. Toronto plays again on Wednesday but there are 28 teams playing and most fantasy GMs will be awash in players with unusually large roles on the final day of the season, so Vasquez doesn't stand out as a great pickup.
Apr 14 - 6:49 PM

Greivis Vasquez turned in a positive stat line against the Hornets on Wednesday with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers.

He failed to top eight points in four of his last five, so Vasquez definitely needed a big game for his confidence. He's not at risk of losing his playing time, but the inconsistency makes it hard to trust him in standard fantasy leagues. He'll get a decent matchup against the Magic on Friday.
Apr 8 - 9:57 PM

Greivis Vasquez hit 5-of-6 shots and 4-of-5 3-pointers for 14 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.

He was 1-of-10 for three points and seven assists in his last game, so this was a much better showing, as he started for Kyle Lowry. Lowry is doubtful for Friday's game, so Vasquez should make for a decent play in that one, as long as his shots are falling.
