Despite starting for the Bucks on Wednesday, Chris Copeland only had eight points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes.
He's not a good defender and his role will be even smaller once Giannis Antetokounmpo (suspension) returns, and especially when Jabari Parker (knee) gets back on the court. Ignore Copeland. Oct 29 - 12:36 AM

Chris Copeland will start on Wednesday against the Knicks.

Copeland got off to a blazing start last season before he eventually fell out of the rotation in Indiana, so he actually may have a chance to provide some short-term value in deeper leagues with Jabari Parker (knee) still on the shelf. Give the streaky shooter a look if you need a couple 3-pointers.

Jason Kidd hinted that Chris Copeland may be in the starting lineup for the Bucks on opening night with Giannis Antetokounmpo set to serve a one-game suspension.

Antetokounmpo will be unavailable for the Bucks when they kick off their season on October 28, due to the flagrant-2 foul he picked up against Mike Dunleavy in last year's playoffs. Kidd will run with a starting lineup of Michael Carter-Williams, Rashad Vaughn, Kris Middleton, Copeland and Greg Monroe for Friday's preseason finale against Minnesota, and while Vaugn would likely return to the bench for the season opener, Copeland is a realistic option to start at the four-spot. If he does indeed start on opening night, he'd be worth considering as a punt play in DFS.

Chris Copeland scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Saturday.

He's been away from the team for a family matter and got it going right away. If Jabari Parker (knee) is held out to start the season, Copeland could get noteworthy minutes at power forward. He's only worth a look in ridiculously deep leagues.

Chris Copeland (personal) returned to practice on Thursday.

Copeland will need more than a few injuries to the guys ahead of him on the depth chart before we can consider him a viable option in most leagues.

Chris Copeland is set to return to the Bucks after spending time with his ailing mother.

While Copeland will provide the Bucks with a veteran presence off the bench, he is currently buried on the depth chart. Unless Milwaukee is hit with a slew of injuries, the 31-year-old can be left undrafted in standard fantasy leagues.

Chris Copeland declined to discuss the stabbing that landed him in the hospital.

Copeland sustained wounds that had him in critical condition, and he's still dealing with fallout from the incident. "It's not something I'm going to talk about right now," he said, while confirming that he was physically back to full strength. Now, Copeland will reunite with Jason Kidd after the two spent time together in New York. "I knew he'd be someone I'd want to play for," Copeland said.

Chris Copeland said that Jason Kidd was a "top reason" he decided to join the Bucks as a free agent this offseason.

"Jason Kidd was the top reason," Copeland said of signing with Milwaukee. "It was a blessing playing with him while we were in New York. I learned a lot from him behind the scenes. When they reached out, it was a no-brainer." Copeland will be buried on the depth chart in Milwaukee, so it'll take more than a few injuries for him to gain any sort of relevancy in standard fantasy leagues. Feel free to ignore Copeland on draft day.

The Bucks have announced the signing of F Chris Copeland.

The contract is reportedly a one-year deal, so there isn't a lot of risk involved for the Bucks here. Copeland will simply provide some 3-point shooting in a limited role this season, so he isn't expected to be a factor in fantasy leagues.

Chris Copeland will sign with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

While terms of the contract are unclear, Copeland's deal will reportedly be for one year. While the 31-year-old will bring some veteran depth to a young Bucks squad, it will be tough for him to earn enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 28 - 12:46 PM

Chris Copeland has reportedly verbally agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks.

Copeland and head coach Jason Kidd have a good relationship from when they were teammates on the Knicks, and Copeland will provide the Bucks with some outside shooting. However, he'll have a lot of competition for playing time in Milwaukee, so it'll be tough for him to earn enough minutes to become a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 23 - 3:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Chris Copeland had a "strong workout and visit" with the Bucks on Tuesday but the Spurs and Thunder are still "in [the] mix."

ESPN's Marc Stein reported that Copeland was expected to finalize a deal with the Bucks this week, but that no longer seems like a given. No matter where he lands, Copeland won't offer fantasy owners more than a handful of 3-pointers in a reserve role.

The Bucks and free agent Chris Copeland are expected to finalize a contract this week, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

He had a physical on Tuesday and it seems there were no red flags, clearing the way for what will likely be a short-term, minimum-salary deal. The 6'8" Copeland gives coach Jason Kidd some 3-point shooting to bring off the bench but his situational use isn't likely to yield fantasy value.
Jul 21 - 8:34 PM

The Bucks Tuesday meeting with Chris Copeland was reportedly a "get-to-know-you session."

The Bucks have been looking to bolster their outside scoring this offseason, and reportedly wanted to see if Copeland would be a good fit with the franchise. They do have an open roster spot, and Copeland certainly provides them with a player that can stretch the floor, although no deal is imminent at this point. Copeland would add some depth to the roster, but it's unlikely he'd earn enough minutes with Milwaukee to turn out any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Jul 21 - 6:30 PM

Chris Copeland is in Milwuakee for a physical, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

Copeland will also meet with Bucks officials while in Milwaukee and it sounds as if a contract agreement is imminent as long as his physical checks out. If signed, the 31-year-old will help provide a young Bucks team with some veteran depth, but it's unlikely he'll see enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
