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.
Jan 8 - 12:55 PM

Mirza Teletovic (concussion) will be available to play on Friday vs. Minnesota.

Teletovic has passed concussion protocol, allowing him to return. He had missed each of the Bucks two previous games. Mirza had been struggling before getting injured, averaging 4.0 points and 4.0 rebounds over the last three games he had appeared in. Teletovic's return will eat into Michael Beasley's minutes.

Mirza Teletovic (concussion) did not play on Wednesday.

He is apparently still in the concussion protocol. With Michael Beasley back, Teletovic will likely be used situationally at best.

Updating a previous item, Mirza Teletovic (concussion) has been ruled out of Monday's game and has entered the NBA's concussion protocol.

Teletovic took a hard fall last week, and although it was originally believed to be a neck injury it's now been ruled a concussion. Without Money Mirza available, Michael Beasley (probable, foot) should find his way into some minutes for however long Teletovic remains sidelined.

Mirza Teletovic (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

Teletovic has seen a spike in minutes recently due to Michael Beasley's foot injury, but Beasley is expected to return on Monday. Teletovic is averaging 7.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 triples in 21.6 minutes per game over his last five, so he's a deep-league asset for now.

Mirza Teletovic couldn't cash in vs. the Cavs on Wednesday, going 1-of-4 from the field to finish with three points, five boards, one assist and one block in 19 minutes.

Michael Beasley (foot) was out again but Teletovic flopped after averaging 11.7 points and 2.3 triples in his past three games. The Bucks were coming off a stinging OT loss at home to the Cavs and they couldn't avenge themselves on the road in Cleveland tonight -- despite Teletovic's ineffective play, he should still see 18-22 minutes on Friday if Beasley isn't ready to go.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 09:37:00 PM

Mirza Teletovic played 19 minutes and hit 5-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, zero rebounds and two assists on Thursday.

He went off for 25 points and five 3-pointers on Saturday, disappeared on Monday and then made a lukewarm appearance tonight. Just keep an eye on him, as he's not yet worth consideration in most fantasy leagues. And by 'most,' we mean 'all.'

Mirza Teletovic scored 25 points with three rebounds, one block and five 3-pointers against the Wizards on Saturday.

He caught fire and coach Jason Kidd just stuck with him over Jabari Parker. Teletovic was a DNP-CD in the last two. This game is a very big fluke, so just leave him on the wire.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 09:53:00 PM

Mirza Teletovic made seven 3-pointers against the Kings on Saturday, finishing with 22 points, one assist and one block.

It was a catch-and-shoot fest in the first half with Teletovic swishing his first five attempts. He's going to be used in certain matchups, so the inconsistency will be too annoying for most fantasy owners.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 12:05:00 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored three points with one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

The Bucks don't really need him to knock down treys anymore with Tony Snell playing well and Malcolm Brogdon already establishing a nice rapport with the other rotation guys. Teletovic is a cut candidate in most leagues.
Thu, Nov 3, 2016 10:46:00 PM

Mirza Teletovic will come off the bench on Saturday with Tony Snell starting ahead of him.

The writing has been on the wall since about two days after the Tony Snell trade. Teletovic has plenty of defensive holes in his game and he wasn't hitting shots. His fantasy value takes a hit here.
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 06:30:00 PM

Mirza Teletovic started the first half during his Bucks' debut on Wednesday, but he finished with only six points on 3-of-12 shooting, three boards and one assist in 27 minutes.

The four-year veteran is coming off a career-best season during which he averaged 12.2 points, 2.3 triples and 3.8 rebounds in just 21.3 minutes per game. He was benched after halftime and it's anyone's guess where he'll begin Saturday's game, but his per-minute upside as a perimeter shooter makes him a worthwhile specialist in most 12-team leagues.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 12:04:00 AM

Mirza Teletovic will start next to Matthew Dellavedova, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee against the Hornets.

The Bucks do not have Tony Snell (ankle) for this game, so they'll start the power forward Teletovic. He did get some starts in the preseason and the Bucks will need him to space the floor. If he has a strong run to start the year, he could stick. If you need treys, give Teletovic a look.
