Michael Carter-Williams said that he chipped a tooth after he took a shot from Mike Dunleavy during Thursday's Game 6 loss to the Bulls.
Mike Dunleavy is likely looking at a suspension for his actions during Game 6, so we'll be watching for any updates on that. As for MCW, he stated during his exit interview that he's looking forward to becoming a bigger piece to the puzzle for Milwaukee next season, but he'll need to make some major improvements to his game to be viewed as a quality asset in standard leagues. He finished his season with the Bucks averaging 14.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.2 turnovers per game on 42.9 percent shooting from the field. His lack of a 3-point shot, high turnover rate, and poor field goal percentage really hurts his value. May 1 - 1:30 PM

Michael Carter-Williams made just 1-of-6 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday, scoring six points with four rebounds, one assist, one block and two turnovers.

He attacked the basket again with all but two of his shots coming from within eight feet, but he just couldn't convert. Carter-Williams was hit in the jaw today and missed a few minutes. That obviously wasn't why he struggled today. The story on MCW has been the same since he was drafted: Carter-Williams needs to get a jumper and cut down on his turnovers. He won't be a highly coveted player in standard fantasy leagues.

Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) said he's good to go for Game 6 on Thursday.

"It feels a little bit tight, nothing too serious," Carter-Williams said. He had to be re-taped on Monday and looked as good as ever. All 10 of his makes were in the paint, so expect the Bulls to play off him more tomorrow.

Michael Carter-Williams may have turned in his best game as a Buck during Monday's Game 5 94-88 win in Chicago, scoring 22 points on 10-of-15 from the field with eight rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three blocks in 38 minutes.

He even turned in his ankle in this game and had to be re-taped. It's pretty easy to figure out why he was successful today: MCW had all 10 makes come from inside the paint today and he only had four attempts from beyond 14 feet. The Bulls will likely force him to shoot from distance more, but we still have to give Carter-Williams a ton of credit here. The Bucks will look to tie the series in Game 6 on Thursday.

Michael Carter-Williams rolled his ankle in the third quarter on Monday and will return to action.

He hobbled back to the locker room under his own power. Carter-Williams might be at less than 100 percent, but he'll do his best to keep the Bucks in it.
Apr 27 - 9:36 PM

Michael Carter-Williams scored 19 points on 9-of-21 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday, adding four rebounds, nine assists, two steals and four turnovers in 43 minutes.

That's a lot of shots and not a lot of points. He vowed to be more aggressive tonight, but more than half of his shots were outside of the restricted area. MCW also had a front row seat for the Derrick Rose Show and he looked extremely slow on the defensive side. Carter-Williams has finished dead last among qualifiers for effective field goal percentage in each of his two seasons. He really shouldn't be shooting the ball 20 times in a game.

Michael Carter-Williams vowed to be more aggressive in Game 2 vs. the Bulls.

MCW shot just 4-of-13, including 1-of-4 from the free-throw line, in the Game 1 loss. "I'm looking to be more aggressive to the basket, getting into the lane and finding the open guy," Carter-Williams said. "We've got to look to move the ball better. That starts with me. Just be unselfish." One thing former Buck Brandon Jennings never lacked is confidence, something Milwaukee could use in abundance right now.

Michael Carter-Williams made 4-of-13 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line for nine points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and three turnovers against the Bulls on Saturday.

He attempted eight mid-range shots during this game, which is not the answer. Carter-Williams and the Bucks were actually shooting the ball well in the first quarter at 59.1 percent, but they finished at 39.3 percent for the entire game. He'll need to be better on both ends if the Bucks want to get this series to even five games.
Apr 18 - 9:34 PM

The Bucks will deploy their usual starting lineup on Wednesday, though Jason Kidd plans to rest his starters for most of the second half.

Milwaukee is cemented in the No. 6 seed and they're simply waiting to see if they'll play the Bulls or Raptors in the first round of the playoffs. This news makes it harder to rely on Michael Carter-Williams, Khris Middleton, Zaza Pachulia and other Bucks' stalwarts, so think twice before committing to them in daily formats.

Michael Carter-Williams was sensational against the 76ers on Monday during a 107-97 win, scoring 30 points on 11-of-17 from the field with five boards, five assists, three steals and one block.

Surprisingly, he had a tribute video tonight in his return to Philly. Carter-Williams is playing very well right now, averaging 22.8 points, 6.3 assists, 2.8 steals and 1.8 turnovers on 62 percent from the field in his last four. This is his second strong finish in a row in his career, but he's still not someone we'll be targeting in standard fantasy drafts next season.
Apr 14 - 12:43 AM

Head coach Jason Kidd said that he could lower the playing time for his players next week.

Kidd isn't the most transparent coach, but at least we have a warning this time. Some obvious candidates to see a reduction in playing time includes Michael Carter-Williams, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia, so their owners should expect to see their value take a small hit.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting with one rebound, seven assists and four steals in 31 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

It hasn't been a stable ride, but the MCW experience has been better for owners in Milwaukee, where he has posted top 60-110 value (8/9 cat) in his last 22 games. It makes sense that the Bucks continue to give him reps before the playoffs, but anything can happen at this time of year.
Apr 11 - 12:59 AM

Michael Carter-Williams hit 13-of-22 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 30 points, eight assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss.

MCW had just eight points in each of his previous two games, and has never really looked fully comfortable in a Bucks jersey. He was great tonight, and with the Bucks still fighting for a playoff spot, there could be more where this came from. And the two turnovers in 36 minutes should be considered a bonus.
Apr 8 - 11:48 PM

Michael Carter-Williams said that he is starting to feel more comfortable in Milwaukee since being traded from the 76ers.

"It was the first time I’ve ever been traded, I didn’t know how to handle things," Carter-Williams said. "I was still having some feelings toward me leaving my old teammates. We got a lot of things out on the table. I think the guys here did a great job of helping me feel comfortable. Just talking to coaches and building a relationship with them and the players. It took a little bit, but it’s there now. We just want to win on the court and continue to build relationships." MCW is capable of contributing across the box score, but in order to take the next step he will have to improve his shooting percentages and take better care of the ball.
Apr 5 - 9:02 AM

Michael Carter flirted with a triple-double in Saturday's loss to the Magic, scoring eight points with 10 boards, nine assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

This line would have been great if MCW didn't shoot just 4-of-14 from the field with four turnovers, but his owners know the drill by now. MCW can fill up the box score with ease, but his poor shooting percentages and high turnover rate make him tough to own in standard leagues. His owners will simply have to take the good with the bad.
