Bucks PG Nate Wolters (ankle, hand) finished the Bucks' Summer League debut with seven points, three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 25 minutes.
Wolters sprained his ankle a few days ago and this was his first game since having hand surgery in March, but neither injury bothered him during Friday's game. As impressive as Wolters was at times last season, his fantasy value will be shaky as long as Brandon Knight is starting at PG for coach Jason Kidd. Jul 12 - 9:52 AM

Nate Wolters suffered a sprained left ankle on Wednesday and had to leave practice.

He is still expected to be ready for the Las Vegas Summer League opener against the Cavaliers on Friday. Wolters had a hand injury end his rookie campaign, but he seems to be completely over his surgery from back on Mar. 26. He'll likely see a smaller role than he did in his rookie season.

Nate Wolters (broken left hand) will not need surgery on his season-ending hand injury.

As per usual, there has been no update from the Bucks as to which bone Wolters broke, but the best guess is a metacarpal. He will resume basketball activities in 3-4 weeks and it shouldn't affect his offseason training much. Ramon Sessions and O.J. Mayo have benefitted the most with Sessions become the better option.
Mar 26 - 4:31 PM

Nate Wolters (hand) will be fitted for a cast and will miss the rest of the season.

The second-round pick had a great showing in 58 games this season, making 31 starts for averages of 7.2 points, 2.6 boards, 3.2 dimes, 0.6 steals, 0.3 triples and 1.0 turnovers. Wolters was in a great spot with the dearth of talent around him, so he's not really going to be on the radar for 2014-15 drafts. Ramon Sessions and Giannis Antetokounmpo will pick up some more playing time.

Nate Wolters suffered a left hand fracture against the Blazers on Thursday.

There is a very good chance this will end his season. The NBA has seen an inordinate amount of metacarpal breaks this year and the vast majority of them have kept players out for a month. Wolters was a very pleasant surprise as a second-round pick and he can now be cut in all leagues. Giannis Antetokounmpo started the second half and will likely get some extra playing time along with Ramon Sessions. If you were on the fence for adding either, this news might be enough to push you to make the move.

Nate Wolters suffered a left hand injury against the Warriors on Thursday and is getting X-rays.

The injury didn't look too bad and we'll know more after halftime. If he is hurt, a red-hot Ramon Sessions would pick up some extra playing time.
Mar 20 - 11:37 PM

Nate Wolters played 28 minutes against the Bobcats on Sunday with 11 points, three boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

It was his second consecutive game making 5-of-7 from the field and has picked up his efficiency lately. Since the All-Star break, Wolters shot 50.5 percent from the field on his 7.4 shots per game in his previous 14. He's a decent low-upside guy in deeper formats.
Mar 16 - 3:41 PM

The Bucks lost to the Knicks in convincing fashion on Saturday, as Nate Wolters led all Milwaukee scorers with 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting.

Wolters made two 3-pointers with three rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes, combining with Ramon Sessions (14 points, four assists) to provide the only bright spots for the Bucks. A lack of defense was the biggest issue, as they allowed New York to shoot 55 percent while scoring at will in the paint, something Milwaukee will attempt to correct in Sunday's matinee vs. the Bobcats.
Mar 15 - 3:11 PM

Nate Wolters, a St. Cloud native, started and had 14 points, three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers on 5-of-6 shooting in 31 minutes.

Wolters is locked in as a starter for the Bucks and is having a nice season. And while tonight's line was a nice one, he's averaging just 9.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0 steals, 0 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games. You can do better off your waiver wire.
Mar 12 - 12:13 AM

Nate Wolters scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds, five assists and one steal in Monday's blowout win over the Jazz.

For players like Wolters that are hit and miss in Larry Drew's rocky rotations, it's best to look at longer intervals to get a gauge on their value. Wolters has averaged 2.7 points, 3.1 boards, 3.0 assists and 0.7 combined steals and blocks for low-end value in 16-team formats over the last two weeks.
Mar 3 - 11:31 PM

Nate Wolters played just 17 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday with four points, one rebound and one block.

He's lost a lot of his playing time to Ramon Sessions and this is his third game in a row with less than 20 minutes. Wolters was a nice story as a second-round pick playing big minutes earlier this month, but his fantasy value looks like it's run its course.
Feb 27 - 10:16 PM

Nate Wolters (ankle) played 15 minutes in Monday's laugher win over the Sixers, scoring six points on 3-of-5 shooting with one rebound, two assists and one steal.

An optimist would say that it's simply good news that Wolters played and that his minutes were limited by the opponent and garbage time, but seeing the variety of players go off behind him like O.J. Mayo (25 points), Ramon Sessions (16 points, five assists) and others is unsettling. Wolters had a nice run but owners shouldn't be afraid to make the drop.
Feb 24 - 10:22 PM

Nate Wolters (ankle) will start at point guard vs. the Sixers on Monday night.

He was injured on Saturday night and it allowed Ramon Sessions to get some run. This move of Wolters starting is certainly interesting and the Bucks might want to give him an extended look with Sessions' contract expiring this season. If you need a point guard, Wolters is worth a look.
Feb 24 - 5:53 PM

Nate Wolters (ankle) will be ready to go vs. the 76ers on Monday.

Caron Butler is also expected to play through an ankle injury but his status is somewhat more tenuous. The Sixers give up easily the most assists to opposing PGs and it's a great matchup for Wolters' fantasy owners -- in the Bucks' three games prior to his injury this weekend, Wolters was averaging 13.7 points, 1.0 threes, 5.0 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.0 steals.
Feb 24 - 12:17 PM

Nate Wolters suffered an ankle sprain in the first half against the Pacers.

As per usual, the Bucks didn't announce the injury until after the game. Wolters played just 19 minutes and coach Larry Drew said the ankle injury is why he had limited playing time. Regardless, Ramon Sessions figures to hurt Wolters' value, so he's not a must-own player anymore.
