Mirza Teletovic had corrective Lasik surgery and will wear protective glasses throughout the season.
Teletovic had astigmatism in both eyes and said that the contacts he'd worn previously would sometimes lead to blurry vision. Teletovic is coming off a disappointing 2016-17 campaign. After averaging 12.2 points and 2.3 treys for the Suns in 2015-16, he averaged just 6.4 points and 1.5 triples for the Bucks last season. Teletovic is hoping for a bounce-back season, but he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues. Sep 29 - 11:04 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored 15 points with three rebounds, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

The Bucks were trailing for most of this game, so they had Teletovic out there to launch treys with more zero-PG lineups. He only scored 11 points combined in his previous three with nothing really new injury wise, so there's no need to budge on grabbing him almost anywhere.
Apr 6 - 9:23 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hamstring) was back in action on Monday against the Grizzlies and he finished with three points and two rebounds over 14 minutes.

Teletovic hit his only 3-pointer attempt in the return. Despite the fact he was able to play double-digit minutes he can mostly be left to the waiver wire outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Mar 13 - 11:12 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hamstring) is available to play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

The Bucks are loving Giannis Antetokounmpo as more of a four man, so they may not even play guys like Teletovic or Terrence Jones. Leave Mirza on the wire.
Mar 13 - 1:53 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hamstring) is out for Saturday against the Wolves.

The Bucks are not going revealing details on this, but coach Jason Kidd said it's more of a day-to-day thing. Terrence Jones is also not getting minutes yet, so it's most been the wings benefiting.
Mar 11 - 6:20 PM

Mirza Teletovic (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Pacers.

Teletovic hurt his hamstring in practice on Thursday. Minimal fantasy impact here, as Teletovic is averaging fewer than 10 minutes per game over the Bucks last 10 contests. Khris Middleton could see a few extra minutes on Friday and we might even witness the Milwaukee debut of Terrence Jones.

Mirza Teletovic hurt his hamstring at practice on Thursday.

The details are not yet known, but the Bucks really shouldn't play him at less than 100 percent. Maybe, just maybe, the Bucks can actually play Terrence Jones, who has still not made his Bucks debut. The Bucks getting in a practice today should help that case, but Jones is not looking like a promising guy to own right now. If you've help him this long, you might as well see what happens on Friday night.
Mar 9 - 5:24 PM

Mirza Teletovic scored 19 points and hit five triples vs. the Pacers on Saturday.

He did all of his damage in 19 minutes, shooting 6-of-of-10 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line with two boards and one assist. He's a lot like Anthony Tolliver is to the Kings as he's simply in there to jack up triples, but he's going to post more duds than big lines like we saw tonight. Leave him on the wire in standard leagues for now.
Feb 11 - 10:17 PM

Mirza Teletovic scored three points in 19 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday.

He blew his opportunity to impress tonight with Jabari Parker (knee) out for the season, as both Michael Beasley and Thon Maker had more luck. Teletovic shot 1-of-6 from the field and added three boards, one assist, one steal and one triple, but he's back off the radar in most leagues following this dud.
Feb 11 - 12:05 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored 19 points with three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

Revenge game? Teletovic was hot and led the bench in scoring -- only Giannis Antetokounmpo had more scoring for the Bucks. Teletovic will be losing minutes on Wednesday when Khris Middleton hits the hardwood against the Heat for their next game.
Feb 5 - 12:51 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored five points with two rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer against the Nuggets on Friday.

He was actually a little disappointing to this point in the season, making just 64 treys in the 49 total games for the Bucks this season -- he has some DNPs. Khris Middleton (hamstring) returning likely will push Teletovic down even further on the rotation.
Feb 4 - 2:56 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored 10 points with one rebound, three assists and three 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

He's been the backup power forward for the Bucks with Michael Beasley getting bumped from the rotation. Teletovic hasn't been a consistent contributor for the Bucks and can stay on the wire.
Jan 25 - 11:54 PM

Mirza Teletovic returned to the bench and played five minutes with zero points vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) only played nine minutes, but coach Jason Kidd couldn't go away from the hot hand in Michael Beasley (28 points). Teletovic isn't worth owning in standard leagues while the Bucks are healthy.
Jan 10 - 11:14 PM

Mirza Teletovic started on Sunday sans Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) but failed to do much of anything, tallying five points, four boards, two assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and one turnover.

This line is that much more disappointing when you realize he was on the court for 31 minutes, but inconsistency is just part of the game with Teletovic. Antetokounmpo was only out with an illness, but the 22-year-old will more than likely be fully recovered for Tuesday's game in San Antonio, so Teletovic can safely remain on the waiver wire in most settings.
Jan 8 - 5:48 PM

Mirza Teletovic will start on Sunday vs. the Wizards.

He's getting the nod with Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) on the shelf, but Michael Beasley should be more involved as well. If you're looking to stream some 3-pointers today, Teletovic is averaging 8.1 points and 2.0 triples in just 18.0 minutes per game this season.
