Miles Plumlee said he would like to re-sign with the Bucks this summer.
"I'm just really thankful for the opportunity to get out there and play," Plumlee said. "I love the game. I love the team here. I think we're building something really special and I hope to continue to be a part of it." He will be a restricted free agent, but the Bucks will likely prioritize bringing in some 3-point shooters first because both Greg Monroe and John Henson are signed to long-term contracts. Plumlee averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 61 appearances for the Bucks. Apr 18 - 10:21 AM

Miles Plumlee started Sunday's game in place of Greg Monroe (rest) and racked up eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with six rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 28 minutes.

If Jason Kidd's recent comments are any indication, the Bucks should make every effort to retain him in restricted free agency this summer. "He's done well no matter who he's playing with," Kidd said. "Different lineups, coming off the bench, starting, playing with two bigs, playing small. He's shown his versatility and he's playing at a very high level for us." If he stays in Milwaukee his fantasy appeal will be stifled by the presence of big men Greg Monroe and John Henson.
Apr 10 - 8:10 PM

Miles Plumlee will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the 76ers, with Greg Monroe (rest) unavailable.

While Plumlee will draw an extremely favorable matchup against the 76ers tonight, his averages of 6.5 points, 5.4 boards and 1.0 block through 13 starts this season show why he's not necessarily a lock for production despite the increased opportunity. He's not much more than a low-end punt in DFS.
Apr 10 - 3:46 PM

Miles Plumlee scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with five boards, one assist, three steals and two turnovers in 20 minutes off the bench.

The steals were a nice surprise for a guy with just 16 on the season, but that's obviously not a trend that's going to continue. Plumlee shows up every now and again, but with meager averages of just 7.9 points, 5.0 boards and not much else since the break, he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 8 - 11:01 PM

Miles Plumlee led Milwaukee's reserves with 12 points, seven boards and one block in 21 minutes on Sunday, going 4-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the FT line.

This is the second time all season that Plumlee has attempted 10+ shots, and both times occurred in the Bucks' past three games. They made a concerted effort to feed him in the post tonight, with mixed results, and this is an encouraging twist for anyone relying on him in deep leagues. As long as Greg Monroe (14 points in 27 minutes) is healthy, however, there's no reason to target Plumlee in average leagues.
Mar 13 - 10:40 PM

Miles Plumlee came off the Bucks' bench on Wednesday for a season-high 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes.

Perhaps he just needed to be benched again to motivate him offensively -- this was his fifth double-digit game all season and the first in March. Plumlee makes the most of his limited shot attempts, and he rebounds well on a per-minute basis, but he's not a reliable fantasy option while Greg Monroe is healthy.
Mar 9 - 11:25 PM

Miles Plumlee will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

The Bucks will roll out a starting five of Jerryd Bayless, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe for Wednesday's game, and it'll be interesting to see just how long this lineup sticks. Plumlee was only putting up late-round value as a starter, and the move to the bench will likely return him to being a non-factor in nearly all leagues.

Miles Plumlee was not a factor during Sunday's loss to the Thunder, scoring just two points on 1-of-2 shooting to go with five rebounds, one block and one turnover in 18 minutes.

Plumlee has been clinging to late-round value over the past month with averages of 7.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 swats per game on 73.1 percent shooting from the field. He’s little more than a shot blocking specialist in really deep leagues.
Mar 6 - 7:10 PM

Miles Plumlee recently drew the praise of his coach for taking advantage of his starting opportunity.

"This is the beauty of basketball," Kidd said. "He had to sit behind $90 million. He was patient. He didn't complain to you guys. He might have complained internally. But he waited his turn." Plumlee has been a pleasant surprise as a starter, but still is only managing 6.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game over his last 10 games. He's only an option in the deepest of leagues.
Feb 28 - 1:36 PM

Miles Plumlee hit all seven of his shots from the field on his way to 14 points, five boards, one assist and one block in 21 minutes.

The Lakers have been kind to opposing bigs this season to put it nicely, so take this performance with a grain of salt. Greg Monroe (12 points and eight boards in 27 minutes) is still playing a lot more minutes than Plumlee and he will also lose value when John Henson (back) eventually returns. Plumlee is strictly a low-end asset in deep leagues.
Feb 22 - 11:55 PM

The Bucks may be less inclined to trade Miles Plumlee due to John Henson's ongoing back injury.

Henson has yet to resume practicing and the Bucks' frontcourt depth would be gutted if they dealt Plumlee without getting a big man in return. Plumlee has been linked to the Wolves and Wizards, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy asset on any team this season.
Feb 18 - 2:36 AM

The Wizards could revisit talks with Milwaukee prior to Thursday's deadline regarding Miles Plumlee.

Washington's frontcourt has been devastated by injuries all season, so Plumlee could actually have a decent role behind Marcin Gortat. The Timberwolves also have interest in the big man, so the chances of a trade going down are increasing. To be clear, Plumlee is still only on the radar in deeper leagues.
Feb 16 - 10:59 PM

The Timberwolves are interested in acquiring Miles Plumlee, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.

The Wolves are in the market for a big man and Plumlee looks to be towards the top of their wish list. Plumlee has been starting for the Bucks, but is still only averaging 15.6 minutes per game over his last five. A change of scenery could boost his value a tad, but Plumlee isn't worth owning in most fantasy leagues.
Feb 16 - 10:16 AM

Miles Plumlee replaced Greg Monroe in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics, but he played just 18 minutes with six points, five boards and one block.

Coach Jason Kidd said before the game that Monroe's minutes would remain the same, so Plumlee isn't going to see a major boost in playing time even if he continues to start. Keep in mind that John Henson (back) is still on the shelf, so his eventual return will eat into Plumlee's minutes as well. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 10:46 PM

Miles Plumlee will start over Greg Monroe for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Jason Kidd said that Plumlee has been a "plus" for the Bucks while on the floor this season and that he needs to "find time to get [Miles] more minutes," so perhaps he's set to earn more playing time in Kidd's wonky rotations. However, with Greg Monroe fully healthy, Plumlee is unlikely to earn enough minutes to make a difference in standard leagues, and owners in most settings can use a wait-and-see approach here.
