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.

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.
Feb 9 - 12:44 AM

Greg Monroe made all five from the field and all three from the line for 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and three steals against the Suns on Saturday.

It's only 20 minutes, but the production was there. Monroe only played 13 minutes on Friday night because John Henson was effective, and Henson was good yet again today. It's not going to be a fun ride on Monroe, so his owners shouldn't have high hopes most nights. He's still a hold.
Feb 5 - 1:02 AM

Greg Monroe scored eight points with two rebounds in 13 minutes against Nuggets on Friday.

Just when you thought you were in, he pulls you back out. Monroe was coming off one of his best stretches of the season with a double-double and a 28-point outing in two of his last four. The Bucks adding Spencer Hawes and Roy Hibbert really shouldn't affect him too much because coach Jason Kidd likes using two centers in his rotation. His owners shouldn't be too discouraged.
Feb 4 - 3:11 AM

Greg Monroe played 24 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday with three rebounds, one assist and two steals.

He was heading for big minutes once again, but the game got to garbage time. The move of Thon Maker to the starting lineup may actually be a good thing because it looks like Maker only gets the first stints of each half. Monroe is coming off a 35-minute double-double and looks to be trending up.
Feb 2 - 12:41 AM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, three steals, three blocks and one turnover in 35 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

That's one of his best lines of the year for counting stats. While the Bucks do apparently want to play Thon Maker more, it's not like going to hurt Monroe. He's still going to be a little matchup dependent, so the ups and downs are a little annoying. He's been hanging around 100 for standard leagues in the last month.
Jan 29 - 12:13 AM

Greg Monroe played just 17 minutes on Friday vs. the Raptors and scored six points on 3-of-5 shooting with two boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

He was coming off a season-high 28 point effort on Wednesday vs. Philly, but he's going to be prone to duds as long he stays in Milwaukee past the trade deadline. The lopsided score was a factor for his low minutes, but at least he will be fresh for Saturday's game vs. Boston. Expect him to bounce back.
Jan 27 - 11:35 PM

Greg Monroe scored a season-high 28 points against the 76ers on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

The recent rotation tweaks have really helped get Monroe going. He plays well next to Malcolm Brogdon in the second unit while John Henson and Michael Beasley getting bumped out of the rotation helps him, too. Monroe's minutes per game have increase in each of the three full months so far this season. While he is trending up and should be owned, he's only held 13th-round value in January.
Jan 26 - 12:02 AM

Greg Monroe returned to form on Monday vs. the Rockets with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Monroe was held to single-digit points and minutes in the teens in his previous three outings, but he broke out of his slump tonight in a big way. He logged 27 minutes compared to 20 for starting center Miles Plumlee, finishing 7-of-13 from the field with one assist and three steals. "I thought Moose [Monroe] was great," Kidd said after the game. "I thought our bench was better today." Monroe has been all over the place this season with one of the most volatile roles in the league, but he's worth owning in standard leagues and could potentially benefit from a possible trade.
Jan 24 - 12:03 AM

Greg Monroe came off the bench, as usual, but played just 17 minutes and finished with nine points, six rebounds and nothing else.

Starter John Henson had 11 points, nine rebounds and a block and played 22 minutes tonight, while Miles Plumlee didn't get into the game. Monroe's minutes are nosediving again, as he's played 18 or fewer of them in each of his last three games. He's been one of the most frustrating players to own this season and owners have to hope his minutes rebound again soon. But for now, he probably deserves a spot on the bench in weekly leagues if he's only going to get 16 minutes a night.
Jan 21 - 11:37 PM

Greg Monroe played just 14 minutes in Friday's loss to the Magic and scored seven points on 2-of-7 shooting.

The worst nightmare for Monroe's owners came true on Friday as the Bucks used a three-man rotation at center for the first time since November (with the exception of garbage time) -- Miles Plumlee and John Henson each played 16 minutes. Hopefully the lopsided score had something to do with it, but this is worth keeping an eye on during Saturday's game vs. the Heat. Monroe added five rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he's still a hold in standard leagues despite scoring just two points in 18 minutes in his previous outing.
