The Celtics have interest in Greg Monroe, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.
Additionally, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic adds the Bucks are "combing for young bigs" to prepare for Monroe's eventual departure. The Celtics have eight picks and a solid backcourt, so adding a big man is a high priority for them. Monroe is not a great fit with the Bucks, so he could be one of the big names changing teams. Coach Brad Stevens would really help the Moose. Jun 23 - 5:26 PM

According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops, the Bucks are aggressively shopping Greg Monroe.

Monroe seemed like a poor fit in Milwaukee this season on the defensive end and this isn't the first time that we've heard that the Bucks are trying to trade him. Monroe is under contract with the Bucks through the 2016-17 season and he also has a player option for the 2017-18 season, but it's hard to imagine the Bucks getting a lot in return for the big man. If Monroe is traded, that would bode really well for the outlook of John Henson and it would make Utah center Jakob Poeltl an interesting option with the No. 10 pick in the draft.

Greg Monroe scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 13 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He did not play in the second half with the Bucks basically tanking. Monroe could be on the trade block this season with the Bucks possibly changing up their roster. Monroe was pretty effective for fantasy owners with fourth-round value in his 79 games. He's in a good spot for fantasy value in Milwaukee even though the young guns will get more shots.
Apr 14 - 12:14 AM

Greg Monroe scored 23 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block against the Magic on Monday.

It certainly wasn't his best defensive game, but Monroe had it working on the offensive side. The Bucks could wind up dealing Monroe in the offseason one summer after they locked him up to a max deal. He'll be a rest candidate on Wednesday with the Bucks possibly tanking to improve their lottery position.
Apr 11 - 9:19 PM

Rashad Vaughn, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe are starting against the Magic on Monday.

The Bucks aren't tanking this time for now. Monroe should be ready to go in a decent matchup for him. If the Bucks win, they'll be tied with the Magic for the 10 and 11 spots in the lottery.
Apr 11 - 5:44 PM

Greg Monroe (rest) is probable for Monday's game against the Magic.

He'll be back after getting the night off on Sunday. There's a chance that other players get the night off tonight, so DFS players might want to be careful on Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris MIddleton and Jabari Parker.
Apr 11 - 2:09 PM

Greg Monroe (rest) will not play Sunday vs. the 76ers, and Miles Plumlee will earn the start in his place.

The Bucks are playing the first game of a back-to-back set, and with a matchup against Philly, Jason Kidd will give Monroe the night off. Minutes don't alway translate to stats for Plumlee, although with a favorable matchup he could be worth a punt in DFS. John Henson should be able to earn some extended minutes off the bench tonight sans Monroe, and he's someone to consider as a streamer for those seeking some help in the shot blocking category.
Apr 10 - 3:44 PM

Greg Monroe scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting Friday, to go with eight boards, four assists and three turnovers through 28 minutes of play.

With the offense flowing through Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker in Milwaukee, and Miles Plumlee eating into his Monroe's minutes, Moose's value has taken a major hit. He's only been a late-round guy over the past six with averages of 12.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game while offering minimal contributions on the defensive end. He's still worth owning everywhere, but owners need to temper their expectations.
Apr 8 - 10:36 PM

Greg Monroe had another quiet game vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday, scoring eight points on 4-of-11 shooting with five boards, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

Monroe has exceeded 30 minutes in only three games since Mar. 1, due to the combined interference of Miles Plumlee and John Henson. Moose is averaging just 12.4 points and 6.0 boards in his past 10 games, with minimal assists or defensive stats, which has reduced him to a late-round option during that span.
Apr 5 - 11:04 PM

Greg Monroe was quiet in 26 minutes vs. Cleveland, finishing a road loss with 14 points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and three turnovers.

Monroe was coming off a strong game but couldn't keep the momentum going, though he did made 6-of-9 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs. Miles Plumlee (four points, three boards) logged 22 minutes off the bench, John Henson (12 points) logged 20 minutes, and Monroe's upside is capped as long as all of them are in Jason Kidd's rotation.
Mar 23 - 10:10 PM

Greg Monroe struggled in 22 minutes vs. the Jazz on Sunday, finishing a home loss with just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting, four rebounds, two assists and one block.

Utah is tied with the Spurs for fewest points allowed in the paint (36.7 per game), so it's not a shock to see Monroe struggle offensively tonight. Jason Kidd said after Friday's game that he won't hesitate to lean on his bench when starters struggle, and he followed through tonight -- John Henson (26 minutes) and Miles Plumlee (23 minutes) both logged more than Monroe. Fantasy owners shouldn't panic, of course, and it helps that Monroe gets a solid four-game slate this week.
Mar 20 - 10:18 PM

Greg Monroe had an off night vs. the Raptors on Tuesday with eight points, nine boards and nothing else in 29 minutes.

While he's returning third-round value on the season, his value is trending in the wrong direction. He's averaging just 11.8 points, 9.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 steals over his last five games. The return of John Henson (back) could complicate things down the stretch, but Monroe's owners just need to hang in there and hope that he bounces back.
Mar 15 - 11:02 PM

Greg Monroe scored 16 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

The move to the starting lineup hasn't led to a bump in output, but he does have better numbers as a starter. Monroe will be flirting with 30 minutes most nights and be a 16-10 guy with some defensive stats. He's been a third-round guy on the year.
Mar 12 - 11:46 PM

Greg Monroe returned to the Bucks' starting lineup on Wednesday, where he posted 10 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in just 24 minutes.

Jason Kidd said he wanted to "take a look at Bayless and Moose as starters," without making any guarantees that it's permanent. It's quite possible that he'll stick though, as the Bucks did lavish a three-year max contract on him this summer. Monroe's scoring and boards took a dip off the bench but his defensive stats actually increased, so this shouldn't cause any big swings for fantasy purposes. His playing time was lower than usual with Miles Plumlee having a great game, but if anything Monroe's starting gig is a slight positive for owners.
Mar 9 - 11:24 PM

Greg Monroe and Jerryd Bayless will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Heat, according to beat reporter CF Gardner.

The corresponding move will more than likely be Miles Plumlee and O.J. Mayo heading back to the bench, and this is great news for Monroe owners as he had been putting up third-round value as a starter before Jason Kidd decided to bring him off the bench. With Moose back in the starting five, there's a chance Jabari Parker could lose some touches on offense.
