Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting in Monday's loss to the 76ers.
"Moose" only played 21 minutes in this one, as the Bucks opted to roll with John Henson for his defense against Joel Embiid. Monroe was still productive with six rebounds, two assists and one steal, but his owners can expect a stronger performance and larger workload on Wednesday vs. Houston. Jan 16 - 6:53 PM

Greg Monroe double-doubled vs. the Heat on Friday with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

He only hit 5-of-13 shots, but hit all six of his free throws with one turnover in 25 minutes. "[Monroe] has been playing at a very high level for us, being that star off the bench that we need," head coach Jason Kidd said. "He’s being a leader with that group." Monroe said that he's not thinking about his $17.8 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but it's one of the reasons why his name has been tossed around in trade rumors. With the way he's been playing lately, the Bucks may want to hold onto him. He's the center fantasy owners want to own in Milwaukee.

Greg Monroe double-doubled off the Bucks' bench on Sunday, posting 12 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, four steals, one block and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

Despite the reserve role, Monroe has been hovering around mid-round value all year long, and he's seen his playing time climb to 26.9 over the past few weeks as he's made John Henson look like a joke in the starting lineup. Milwaukee is currently tied with Washington for the No. 8 spot out East, putting them firmly in the playoff hunt, so they may be hesitant to deal Monroe, as he's been providing the team with some nice energy off the bench.
Jan 8 - 5:57 PM

Greg Monroe scored 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting in Friday's loss to the Knicks.

The big man also grabbed seven rebounds with four assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes. Monroe is trending up and he's clearly the center to own in Milwaukee right now. He's played 27 or more minutes in five out of his last six games, and he's averaging 13.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals in that span. Maybe the Bucks shouldn't trade him.
Jan 7 - 12:05 AM

Greg Monroe scored 18 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one block and three steals in 31 minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He continues to get more run and he's really meshing with Malcolm Brogdon lately. In their last three games together, Monroe-Brogdon lineups are scorching hot with a 23.8 net rating. Not coincidentally, Monroe has scored at least 15 points and played at least 27 minutes in each of those. He's trending up, but it's not a bad idea to sell high.
Jan 4 - 11:42 PM

Greg Monroe hit 7-of-10 shots off the bench to finish Monday's 98-94 win over the Thunder with 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 27.

Starter John Henson also played well, hitting 6-of-7 shots for 12 points, five rebounds, a steal and a block. As long as the two are splitting minutes in the middle, both will be shaky starters in fantasy leagues. Monroe is playing well right now, averaging 13.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.2 steal over his last five games. Henson is averaging just 6.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over his last five, meaning Monroe is the more reliable player right now.
Jan 2 - 10:54 PM

Greg Monroe played a season-high 34 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 15 points with 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals.

The Bucks said he wanted to get him on the court more with Malcolm Brogdon, so that may have helped him tonight. John Henson has a bit of the yips right now and is making some bad fouls along the way. Monroe has played well over his last five, averaging 13.0 points, 6.8 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 23,6 minutes per game.

Greg Monroe scored 14 points with five rebounds, one block, two steals and a season-high six assists against the Pistons on Wednesday.

Revenge game? The 27 minutes are the most he's played since his DNP-CD back on Nov. 17 and he's seen an upward trend lately, too. Over their last three, the Bucks bench has been effective and Monroe is still getting about 13 minutes per game next to Jabari Parker and/or Giannis Antetokounmpo. Monroe is still going to be a bit hit and miss, but he's worth owning now.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 10:45:00 PM

Greg Monroe hit 7-of-10 shots off the bench for 16 points, five rebounds and a steal in Monday's loss.

Starter John Henson had eight points, three boards and no blocks in 25 minutes, while Monroe played 22 minutes off the bench. Henson is still a little more trustworthy as the starter, but Monroe has double-doubled in two of his last five games, and the 16 points were the most he's scored since he did it on Nov. 3. He's coming on and both centers are worth owning, but neither is going to be a must-start player as long as they remain in this nightmare of a timeshare.

According to Bucks reporter Gery Woelfel, the team is still looking to trade Greg Monroe.

We've seen Monroe's name in trade rumors for over a year, so no one should be surprised by this. Monroe is being paid $17.14 million this season and is owed $17.88 million in 2017-18, but he can also opt out of his deal this summer. Opposing teams won't give up much for Monroe because they may view him as a rental, but he could be looking at a bump in fantasy value if he leave Milwaukee. He's currently in a timeshare with John Henson and is averaging 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals in 19.3 minutes per game on the season.

Greg Monroe made 5-of-7 field goals to finish Friday's home win with 12 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in just 21 minutes of action.

Moose hasn't been an easy player to own this season, due to the fact that he's playing 19.2 minutes per game, but he's still had late-round value in roto leagues. Over the past 10 games he's averaging 10.4 points on 52.4 percent shooting, 6.7 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals, and the tantalizing prospect of a trade makes him a solid hold through the trade deadline.

Greg Monroe played just 18 minutes in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with six points and four rebounds.

Starter John Henson had 14 points and eight boards in 27 minutes, and while Monroe has been making a little noise lately, it's nights like this that are a stark reminder of how far Monroe has fallen in the past couple years. Monroe had a 14 & 12 double-double on Friday, which had things looking up for him, but tonight's quiet game essentially puts him back at square one. He's basically too good to cut, yet doesn't currently have enough value to trade. Put him on your bench if you can and hope he gets traded, or that Jason Kidd's mind is taken over by aliens.

Greg Monroe scored 14 points with 12 rebounds, three assists and three turnovers against the Bulls on Friday night.

The Bulls "defense" was basically nonexistent for Monroe to post one of his best games. Coach Jason Kidd seems to have his rotation all figured out now with his fives and Monroe has been locked in with minutes in the mid 20s. Even with that limited run, he's still worth owning in standard leagues.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 11:43:00 PM

Greg Monroe played 22 minutes and hit 3-of-7 shots for seven points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block on Thursday.

While he didn't score or board a lot, he did fill the stat sheet and play some meaningful minutes. And while Monroe still isn't where his owners would like to see him, he's averaging 10.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals on 57 percent shooting in just 21 minutes a game. If Jason Kidd didn't treat him like a unwelcome guess, Monroe might be having a solid season.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 11:32:00 PM

Greg Monroe played just 16 minutes, but hit 5-of-5 shots for 11 points and two rebounds in Monday's loss to the Raptors.

Starter John Henson played just 14 minutes and it appears that Jason Kidd decided his team would have a better chance against Jonas Valanciunas by not even playing a center. So Kidd decided to throw his point guard, Giannis Antetokounmpo, out there at center. While neither Henson nor Monroe are doing much to help carry fantasy teams, they're both worth owning for now.
