Mirza Teletovic underwent arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday to repair cartilage in his left knee, and he's expected to miss the next four weeks of action.
Teletovic had missed the past six games, so him going down for another four weeks won't change much with the Milwaukee rotation. Khris Middleton will continue to log heavy minutes with little depth behind him, with DeAndre Liggins picking up minutes in the upper-teens. Teletovic belongs on the wire in all formats.

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) will miss his sixth straight game on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He doesn't have a timetable to return, but we'll likely get an update on his status early this week. Prior to the injury, Teletovic was putting up 7.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 2.1 triples in just 15.9 minutes per game.

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) will not play Saturday vs. Dallas.

This will be the fifth straight game Teletovic has missed. The Bucks return home on Monday to host the Wizards. We should have an update on Teletovic's status early next week. Starter Khris Middleton, who has played over 38 minutes in each of Milwaukee's last four games, will continue to log heavy minutes in his absence.
Nov 18 - 12:14 PM

Coach Jason Kidd said Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) is scheduled to resume on-court workouts on Wednesday.

Teletovic has been ruled out of Saturday's game and will also miss Monday's game vs. Memphis. In addition, it certainly seems safe to assume he won't be able to play Wednesday vs. Detroit. With Eric Bledsoe now in the mix, Malcolm Brogdon will likely log 30-plus minutes off the bench and should soak up most of Mirza's abandoned minutes. With Milwaukee on the back end of a back-to-back, it's possible Rashad Vaughn or D.J. Wilson might enter the rotation on Saturday.
Nov 11 - 7:40 PM

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) is listed as "out" in the game notes for Saturday's matchup with the Lakers.

This isn't a surprising update, as Teletovic did not play Friday and coach Jason Kidd said that Mirza would "probably miss more than one game." Kidd went with an eight-man rotation on Friday. Eric Bledsoe logged 29 minutes in his Bucks debut, with Malcolm Brogdon playing 34 minutes off the bench. Because the Bucks are on the back end of a back-to-back, it's possible Rashad Vaughn or D.J. Wilson might crack the rotation on Saturday.

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) will not play Friday vs. San Antonio and will "probably miss more than one game," according to coach Jason Kidd.

The Bucks rotation will be in flux on Friday, as the team welcomes newly acquired Eric Bledsoe into the mix. With Teletovic sidelined, starter Khris Middleton will see extended minutes. Bucks beat writer Matt Velazquez tweeted that Teletovic's absence also means that "D.J. Wilson will get some minutes" and that "Joel Bolomboy is likely to be activated with Rashad Vaughn or Sterling Brown being inactive."
Nov 10 - 12:54 PM

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) is listed as doubtful in the game notes for Friday's matchup with the Spurs.

Teletovic was listed as questionable prior to Wednesday's game, but was able to suit up and scored 16 points in 17 minutes vs. the Cavs. Being downgraded to doubtful is certainly not promising; however, it's only a game-notes designation, so we'll await an update from coach Jason Kidd. If Mirza is unable to play, starter Khris Middleton would be asked to log extended minutes and Rashad Vaughn and/or D.J. Wilson would likely crack the rotation as well.

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) scored 16 points in 17 minutes vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday, adding two rebounds and four 3-pointers.

Teletovic got an extended look with the Bucks trailing and John Henson in foul trouble, but he'll be very hard to rely on considering he was averaging 6.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 treys in 15.8 minutes prior to Tuesday. Unless you need triples, Teletovic shouldn't be on your radar for now.
Nov 7 - 10:13 PM

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) will play Tuesday vs. the Cavs.

Teletovic was initially listed as questionable in the game notes but will suit up. Coach Jason Kidd told reporters that Teletovic will not be on a minutes limit unless he complains of pain in his knee. Mirza is averaging 6.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 treys in 15.8 minutes per game this season.
Nov 7 - 5:52 PM

Mirza Teletovic (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup against Cleveland.

This is the first we've heard of a knee issue for Teletovic this season. However, it's only a game notes designation, so we'll take the information with a grain of salt. Hopefully, coach Jason Kidd will provide an update after Milwaukee's shootaround. If Mirza is unable to play, starter Khris Middleton would be asked to log extra minutes. Rashad Vaughn and D.J. Wilson might see an uptick in playing time as well.

Nov 7 - 12:30 PM

Mirza Teletovic hit 5-of-10 shots and five 3-pointers for 15 points and five rebounds off the Bucks bench in Monday's win over the Hornets.

He's gotten better each game, scoring zero, 3, 9 and 15 points this season. Teletovic is worth keeping an eye on, but there's no reason to pick him up at this point.
Oct 23 - 11:06 PM

Mirza Teletovic logged a season-high 17 minutes off the bench on Saturday, tallying nine points, three 3-pointers, two boards, one steal and one block.

Teletovic doesn't have a consistent role in Milwaukee, and he rarely contributes anything outside of 3-point shooting to the box score, so there's no reason to roster him in most settings.
Oct 22 - 12:41 AM

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.
