Greg Monroe finished Sunday's game with 16 points, four rebounds and two assists, going 7-of-13 from the field in 26 minutes off the bench.
John Henson (sprained thumb) was out today and could miss a few more games based on his original timetable of at least one week, leaving Monroe with an easier path to playing time. He's a top-100 player in most formats, but his upside has been capped all season due to limited minutes. Hopefully he'll step up in the Bucks' next few games. Mar 26 - 6:20 PM

Greg Monroe double-doubled vs. the Hawks on Friday with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

He finished 7-of-15 from the field with three assists in 26 minutes. The Bucks have been missing John Henson (ankle) for the last two games, but surprisingly, Monroe's minutes haven't gone up. Instead, Thon Maker has seen a slight uptick and Spencer Hawes has entered the rotation. Monroe is still worth deploying in standard leagues and just needs 24+ minutes to help his owners.
Mar 25 - 12:23 AM

Greg Monroe is available to play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

Monroe was ejected on Friday vs. the Lakers for shoving Nick Young, but the NBA isn't going to step in and issue a suspension. Get him active.

Greg Monroe was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

Nick Young pushed Malcolm Brogdon after a hard foul, but Monroe came over and aggressively shoved Young in the neck area. While a suspension isn't likely, it wouldn't hurt to confirm his status for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors just in case. Monroe finished with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and three blocks in just 16 minutes.
Mar 18 - 12:25 AM

Greg Monroe scored 18 points on 6-of-7 shooting vs. the Pacers on Friday.

He also hit 6-of-7 free throws, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes. Monroe even logged nearly five minutes next to John Henson tonight, but that had a lot to do with the matchup. Regardless, he's trending up and has looked solid since the All-Star break, posting averages of 12.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks in his previous eight games.
Mar 10 - 11:16 PM

Greg Monroe had a solid game on Wednesday, playing 29 minutes to finish with 17 points (6-of-14 FGs, 5-of-7 FTs), eight rebounds, three assists and one block.

John Henson got another DNP-CD, starter Thon Maker played 11 minutes and Spencer Hawes logged only eight minutes, which left the bulk of the center duties to Monroe. Limited playing time has been a headache for his owners all season, but he's still balancing out as a top-100 value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues.
Mar 8 - 11:43 PM

Greg Monroe scored 12 points with two rebounds in 22 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

He hasn't exactly played great with just 22 minutes in each of his last two, posting a two-point dud on Saturday. Monroe has been very inconsistent and he's likely just a low-end guy to begin with. With all the hot pickups out there, his owners shouldn't be holding on to him too tightly.
Mar 6 - 9:58 PM

Greg Monroe scored four points with six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 22 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

Spencer Hawes had a good night, so that explains it. Monroe was actually playing somewhat well before this game, averaging 13.6 points, 6.6 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.0 steals in his previous five games since the break. Monroe's owners shouldn't be too worried.
Mar 4 - 11:29 PM

Greg Monroe scored 25 points in a 112-101 win over the Clippers on Friday.

John Henson was a DNP-CD and coach Jason Kidd hinted before tonight's game that he plans to keep Thon Maker's minutes in the teens, so Monroe made a strong case to keep playing big minutes as the Bucks fight for a playoff spot. He shot 11-of-15 from the field and added five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes, his largest workload since Jan. 28. The Bucks play the Raptors on Saturday and Monroe was held to six points in 17 minutes in their previous meeting, but hopefully he can build on this momentum. Unfortunately, Monroe has one of the most volatile roles in the NBA.
Mar 3 - 10:41 PM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Over the past few weeks, Monroe has averaged 30.0 minutes a night and he’s responded with averages of 17.5 points, 9.3 boards, 2.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 2.3 turnovers per game on 59.6 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-25 value in standard 9-cat leagues. The sky-high shooting is probably unsustainable, and Jason Kidd has some of the most unpredictable rotations in the league, but if Monroe can continue to flirt with minutes in the 30s he could have a strong finish to the year.
Feb 26 - 7:38 PM

Greg Monroe's agent, David Falk, said it's unlikely his client will be dealt before the deadline.

This coincides with Adrian Wojnarowski saying a deal was unlikely due to little interest in acquiring the big man. Monroe ended his first half on a high note with back-to-back games of 25 points on Feb. 13 and 15. The loss of Jabari Parker should help his usage and the Bucks moving Thon Maker to the four gives him less competition, too.
Feb 22 - 5:59 PM

Greg Monroe had another strong game on Monday in the Bucks victory over the Nets, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

Monroe continues to come off the bench but has recently found his groove. He has tallied at least 17 points and eight boards in three straight games. Monroe is averaging 22.3 points (while shooting 76.9 percent from the floor), 9.7 rebounds and 2.0 steals over that three-game stretch. The Bucks have needed additional offense since Jabari Parker went down and Monroe has supplied it. Monroe's stock is rising, and he's on pace for a strong second half.
Feb 15 - 10:28 PM

Greg Monroe came off the bench to hit 12-of-15 shots for 25 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and three steals in 31 minutes in Monday's 102-89 win over the Pistons.

Monroe was pretty awesome against DeAndre Drummond tonight and had 17 points, eight boards and two blocks in his previous game. With Jabari Parker's season over, John Henson getting DNPs and Thon Maker quiet in starts, Monroe could be setting up for a big finish to the season. Get him in your lineup.
Feb 13 - 11:14 PM

Greg Monroe scored 17 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks against the Pacers on Saturday.

That snapped a two-game streak of single-digit points for Monroe. The Bucks moved John Henson to the bench tonight and he picked up a DNP-CD, so that should help Moose in the short term. He shot 6-of-8 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line in 26 minutes, and while his volatile role makes him a headache in fantasy, he's still worth owning in most cases.
Feb 11 - 10:26 PM

Greg Monroe played 22 minutes vs. Miami on Wednesday, finishing with six points, seven rebounds and two assists.

The Bucks recently traded for Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes, but neither guy was on the active list tonight and coach Jason Kidd didn't commit to playing them. "Everybody has to be patient and understand it’s about the team," Kidd said. "At some point [Hawes and Hibbert] are going to get a chance to play." It sounds like Monroe's role is safe, at least for the time being.
