Coach Jason Kidd finally figured out his big man rotation. Monroe has played at least 20 minutes in each of his last five, averaging 10.8 points, 7.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 steals. He should be owned in all leagues. Dec 7 - 11:42 PM

Greg Monroe hit 5-of-9 shots for 10 points and 13 rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Monroe might not be fully back in Jason Kidd's good graces, but he is playing well right now, averaging 10.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 blocks off the bench over his last five. John Henson looks like the better player to own right now, but if you have been holding Monroe all season waiting for him to finally show up, it's happening.

Greg Monroe scored 13 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one blocks and four steals

He finally seems to be out of the doghouse with coach Jason Kidd bumping Miles Plumlee out and going with a two-man rotation at his five spot. Monroe still hasn't been too great, averaging 9.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.6 steals. He's still worth a pickup with even just 20 minutes per game.
Dec 3 - 8:19 PM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and three turnovers against the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

John Henson (21 minutes) started again and Miles Plumlee (two minutes) was out of the rotation, so Monroe is trending in the right direction. It looks like he may form a timeshare at the center position with Henson, but it's hard to believe that this was the first time in his last seven games that he eclipsed the 20-minute mark. His owners will be hoping the Bucks trade him out of Milwaukee sooner rather than later.
Nov 29 - 11:14 PM

Greg Monroe served as John Henson's backup on Sunday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes.

After playing 19 minutes on Friday, Monroe managed to stick in the rotation despite Jason Kidd's ever-changing whims. His per-minute production has been great but as long as his minutes are in the teens it's hard to deploy him in 12-team leagues. The waiting game continues for his owners.

Per an ESPN report, the Bucks are shopping center Greg Monroe around the league.

This is certainly not surprising news, as Monroe was averaging less than five minutes per game in the four games the Bucks played prior to Thanksgiving. A trade would be a welcome sight for Monroe owners, as it could only help his value. Encouragingly, however, Monroe received a whopping 19 minutes of playing time on Friday night. He finished with eight points, 10 rebounds and one assist

Greg Monroe was the first big man off the Bucks' bench on Friday, finishing with eight points, 10 rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

Jason Kidd's center rotation has been a mess all season, but this is at least progress for Monroe's suffering owners -- he picked up a DNP-CD on Thursday and averaged just 5.8 minutes in his past three games. He has minimal trade value at the moment, in reality or fantasy, and most owners should simply stay patient. His mid-round upside makes him a tough guy to cut in 12-team leagues.
Nov 25 - 10:42 PM

Greg Monroe played just eight minutes on Monday vs. the Magic with two points, two rebounds, one steal and one block.

Jason Kidd previously said that he wasn't going to use three centers anymore, but John Henson (22 minutes) and Miles Plumlee (10 minutes) both got some run. If your fantasy team is in a bad spot and you need production now, cutting Monroe for a hot free agent makes sense. There's a good chance he's traded this season, so he remains an elite stash.
Nov 22 - 12:50 AM

Greg Monroe, who was a DNP-CD on Thursday, played just two minutes off the bench for two points in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.

Monroe is clearly in Jason Kidd's doghouse, while John Henson and Miles Plumlee aren't exactly setting the world on fire. But for now, Kidd only want to use two centers per night, and Monroe is the odd man out. That could change as quickly as the wind changes direction, but for now Monroe is offering nothing for his fantasy owners. Patience is recommended, but given how quickly he's fallen out of favor with Kidd, owners may be forced to employ a 'desperate times call for desperate measures' mentality.
Nov 20 - 12:47 AM

Coach Jason Kidd said his plan for Thursday was to not use Greg Monroe against the Heat.

"Me and Greg talked today that I was going to go with the other two centers," Kidd said after the game. We've seen Kidd shy away from using Monroe against the post-up bigs, so it's not too surprising to see him get a DNP-CD on Thursday. Things should be a little different against Golden State, but the Warriors are renowned for making guys like Enes Kanter useless. Monroe sure has lost a lot of his fantasy appeal and isn't a must-own guy in standard leagues. Obviously he shouldn't be dropped for a guy without value.

Greg Monroe was a DNP-CD on Thursday against the Heat.

Uh oh. He only played seven minutes on Wednesday against the Hawks, so there's a clear downward trend. Monroe said he's "fine" with coming off the bench and he looked to be having a good time on the bench tonight because he was jamming to some of the in-game music (video in link below). Something has to give here with Monroe, but he's not a must-own player anymore. A trade would almost certainly help his fantasy value. If someone like Seth Curry is floating around on your wire, it makes sense to drop Monroe.

Greg Monroe said that he's "fine" with coming off the bench in Milwaukee.

"It’s his decision," Monroe said of the Bucks coach bringing him off the bench. "I’m comfortable; I’m fine. I think we have a good flow, a good balance. We won the game [against Memphis]; that’s all that matters. It doesn’t matter when I get in." Despite earning just 21.5 minutes off the bench in Milwaukee, Monroe has producing fifth-round value on the year with averages of 10.3 points, 7.9 boards, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game. If those trade rumors ever come to fruition, Monroe would see a significant boost outside of Milwaukee.
Nov 16 - 10:48 AM

Greg Monroe played 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday with eight points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal.

It was a bad matchup for him against Anthony Davis and he only played 18 minutes against the Pels on Nov. 1. Monroe's minutes have been all over the place in his last five with a low of 14 and a high of 29, averaging 10.0 points, 9.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.6 blocks. Basically, it comes down to the matchup for him. His minutes have been down against the Pelicans with Anthony Davis and also the Kings with DeMarcus Cousins. He's still a solid hold in standard leagues.
Nov 10 - 10:53 PM

Greg Monroe scored six points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 14 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

This wasn't the best matchup for Monroe against DeMarcus Cousins and it was a blowout. He had a big game on Thursday with 16 and 16, so he'll be better against the Bucks on Sunday. That's a much better matchup for him, by the way.
Nov 6 - 12:08 AM

Greg Monroe turned in his best offensive game of the season on Thursday, scoring 16 points with 16 boards, six assists and one block in 26 minutes.

It was his best scoring effort in the points department this season and also his only game with a field goal percentage greater than 45 percent -- he was 6-of-10 tonight. Monroe will likely stay on the bench while the Bucks are at full strength, but last year he showed he can produce with 12 games off the bench. Expect him to be a mid-round guy.
