Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 16 points on 7-of-10 from the field against the Pacers on Thursday with four boards, two assists and one block in 43 minutes.

He’s really honed in on how to score, which explains why he’s been so much better with respect to efficiency like tonight. In his previous March games, Antetokounmpo attempted 69.4 percent of his shots in the paint. That helped him get to 49.7 percent from the field with averages of 16.6 points, 8.2 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.0 assists, 1.7 blocks and 0.2 treys. If he develops his jumper, the sky is the limit.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Cavs, with nine rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers through 35 minutes of floor time.

Giannis also shot 5-of-6 from the charity stripe, and his aggressiveness in getting to the line has really improved this season. He's been rolling through the month of March with averages of 16.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game while shooting at a sterling 49.2 percent clip from the field. He's only in his second year, so owners in keeper leagues can only expect continued. Enjoy.
Mar 22 - 6:35 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 53 minutes.

He played a career-high 53 minutes and the days of him having his playing time held in check are a thing of the past. He's averaging close to 36 minutes per game since the break and is rising up the ranks for fantasy value. He'll be a top-50 pick next season with massive upside.
Mar 21 - 12:11 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 19 points, nine rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks on 8-of-16 shooting on Wednesday.

That's what he do. And what else he's doing, is averaging 15.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 blocks on 50 percent shooting over his last five. He's not stealing or hitting threes, but it's hard to be mad at him on a nightly basis.
Mar 19 - 12:30 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) fared well in a showdown with Anthony Davis and the Pelicans on Tuesday, scoring 15 points with nine rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one turnover in 36 minutes.

He made 6-of-9 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs, and didn't flinch when matched up with the Pelicans' star power forward. Antetokounmpo is filling the stat sheet in every category but 3-pointers lately, and his owners can look forward to terrific production as the Bucks try to solidify their playoff standing down the stretch -- they're still the No. 6 seed but they've dropped eight of their past 10 games.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is practicing on Monday.

We're not even going to put him on the injury report. He tweaked his ankle late in Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies, but as he said after the game, he's just fine.
Mar 16 - 1:26 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his ankle late on Saturday night during a 96-83 loss to the Grizzlies, finishing with 19 points, six rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

The good news is that he said he was OK after the game. Antetokounmpo has suffered more severe ankle sprains in previous games and played the next time out, so we think he'll be good to go for Tuesday. His fantasy owners have to be enjoying the ride and his owners in dynasty leagues are allowed to have sinister laughs after every game with his limitless ceiling.
Mar 15 - 12:18 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 29 points in the Bucks' 114-103 loss to the Pelicans on Monday, hitting 11-of-16 shots (0-for-1 3PTs, 7-of-7 FTs) with five rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocks in 37 minutes.

Ever since Jabari Parker's season-ending injury the Bucks have completely released Antetokounmpo into the wild and he has been a top 40-50 value ever since.
Mar 10 - 12:48 AM

The Bucks fell in Denver on Tuesday despite a strong game from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who posted 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks.

Giannis turned the ball over five times but he also drained a 3-pointer and was able to log 35 minutes despite persistent foul trouble. He and Khris Middleton have proven to be a formidable wing duo for the Bucks, and both guys are returning top-40 value over the past 10 games.
Mar 4 - 12:02 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had eight points on 4-of-5 shooting against the Jazz on Saturday, adding five boards, four assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes.

He was held scoreless and didn't even attempt a shot before halftime, but luckily for his owners he was able to muster up some confidence in the second half. Antetokounmpo has been in the midst of a major slump, shooting just 35 percent from the field over his last seven games, so hopefully the Greek Freak can continue to improve as the season progresses.
Feb 28 - 11:47 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 19 points, four boards, one steal and two blocks on Sunday, making 7-of-15 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs in a tough home loss.

He keeps getting better and has vaulted into top-40 value with no signs of slowing down. His scoring, rebounds and defensive numbers jump out at fantasy owners, but his percentages are just as important -- after a rocky rookie campaign he's now shooting a respectable 50.0 percent from the field and 73.8 percent from the FT line.
Feb 22 - 6:06 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo nearly triple-doubled in the Bucks' 103-97 win over the Nets on Monday, scoring 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting with nine rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one block in 32 minutes.

It's hard to remember the days of low-end lines now that the injury to Jabari Parker has officially set him free. If you kept the faith throughout the process you are being rewarded handsomely with early round value this month.
Feb 10 - 1:51 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo filled the stat sheet against the Celtics on Saturday with 14 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers.

He made 6-of-10 from the field and the improved shooting numbers continue to be the big story, making 50.9 percent from the field this season. Antetokounmpo scored at least 25 points in each of his previous two and made at least 60 percent from the field in three of his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 10.8 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.0 steals. It's on.
Feb 8 - 12:01 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo set a career-high in scoring (27) for the second straight night in Friday's loss to the Rockets, hitting 11-of-16 shots (5-of-6 FTs) with 15 rebounds, four assists and one block.

The injury to Jabari Parker has really opened things up for him and he's going to be a must-start player the rest of the way, turning around a season that started off pretty slowly before Parker's injury.
