Miles Plumlee (right index finger) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

He has a sprain to his right index finger and his status is not clear going forward. Plumlee is not really in the rotation anyway.

Miles Plumlee fell from the starting lineup on Sunday and wound up going scoreless in just three minutes off the bench.

We warned against picking up Plumlee despite his recent starting gig, and this is exactly why. Jason Kidd's center rotation has been chaotic all year and he appears no closer to settling it down, which will likely result in night-to-night fluctuations. As far as Plumlee is concerned, this is a situation to avoid.

Miles Plumlee will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Magic.

Jason Kidd likes to mix-and-match his starting center based on the matchup, and while it was Plumlee's turn to run with the starters on Friday night against Phoenix, he'll return to a bench role tonight for a matchup against an Orlando team that likes to play big. Plumlee isn't worth owning in most leagues, regardless of how he enters the game.

Miles Plumlee shifted into the Bucks' starting lineup on Friday, posting five points, three rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes of action.

Plumlee's stint as a starter earlier this season is instructive -- he averaged a mere 3.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 14.3 minutes per game. Jason Kidd frequently gives him a quick hook and there's no reason to expect Plumlee to help owners outside of the deepest leagues.

Miles Plumlee will start against the Raptors on Friday with John Henson moving to the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd has been mixing it up and usually wants to roll with just two centers, so this might be a night for Greg Monroe. Plumlee has very little value as the starter.

Miles Plumlee will not start against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

About time. Henson has played much better while Plumlee has struggled. Plum-Dawg might be a DNP-CD.

Miles Plumlee was moved to the bench in the second half on Thursday, finishing with three fouls and three missed shots from the field.

Not good. Plumlee has been quiet all season and coach Jason Kidd may have seen too much. Plumlee has been outplayed all season by John Henson, so the move isn't a surprise. He isn't worth owning in almost any league regardless.

Miles Plumlee started again on Sunday and posted eight points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 17 minutes.

Plumlee played a combined 16 minutes in the Bucks' first two games, but he avoided a quick hook from coach Jason Kidd tonight. John Henson played 12 minutes off the bench, Greg Monroe played 18 minutes, and it's futile to guess which center will play the most vs. New Orleans on Tuesday.

Miles Plumlee was ineffective as a starter on Wednesday, finishing scoreless with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in eight minutes.

Plumlee lasted less than four minutes in the third quarter and didn't get back on the court, so there are no guarantees that he'll get another start vs. Brooklyn on Saturday. Suffice to say, he's off the radar in standard leagues.

Miles Plumlee is starting on Wednesday.

The Bucks used John Henson as a backup power forward at times, so the flexibility there makes Plulmee the starting option. Henson has better fantasy value for his blocks, though. Greg Monroe will still get big minutes off the bench and isn't affected too much with this move.

Miles Plumlee has been practicing with the starting unit, so it looks like he'll be Milwaukee's starting center for Wednesday's regular-season opener against Charlotte.

Through 14 games as a starter last season, Plumlee only managed to contribute averages of 6.6 points, 5.4 boards and 1.0 block, so he's a good example of how starting doesn't necessarily lead to fantasy value. Greg Monroe will come off the bench.

Miles Plumlee chipped in 10 points and eight boards in 19 minutes on Wednesday, going 4-of-5 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.

The points and rebounds were both preseason highs for Plumlee, which says plenty about his fantasy outlook. Even as the Bucks' presumptive starting center, he's only worth a glance in deep leagues.

Matthew Dellavedova, Orlando Johnson, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee will start on Saturday.

Orlando Johnson starting in the preseason is peak preseason for the Bucks. We'll see how Plumlee does in the starting lineup.

Miles Plumlee and Rashad Vaughn are expected to start for the Bucks this season.

Wow. Even with Greg Monroe on the trade block, this is surprising. The Bucks did give Plumlee a four-year, $52 million deal over the summer, so they clearly believe in him. The Bucks also have John Henson signed to a long-term deal, so they could have three centers vying for minutes unless a trade opens things up. Plumlee averaged 6.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 block in 14 starts last season, so he's not exactly an attractive fantasy asset. We should have more clarity once camp officially begins on Tuesday.
