Matthew Dellavedova (left knee tendinitis) will miss his third straight game on Monday vs. the Wizards.
He doesn't have a timetable to return, but it doesn't matter anyways because he's lost most of his fantasy value since Eric Bledsoe arrived. Malcolm Brogdon will continue to play a healthy dose of minutes at both guard spots off the bench. Nov 20 - 12:56 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (left knee tendinitis) will not play Saturday vs. the Mavs.

This will be the second straight game Dellavedova has missed. Eric Bledsoe logged 31 minutes on Wednesday, with Malcolm Brogdon playing 27 minutes off the bench. Gary Payton II was a DNP-CD. With Bledsoe and Brogdon ahead of him in the rotation even when he's healthy, Dellavedova belongs on the waiver wire in almost all fantasy formats.

Matthew Dellavedova (left knee tendinitis) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

With Dellavedova on the sidelines, Malcolm Brogdon shouldn't have much trouble flirting with 30 minutes off the bench and perhaps Rashad Vaughn will be able to work his way into the rotation. After Wednesday, the Bucks don't take the floor again until Saturday in Dallas, so maybe this will just be a one-game absence for Delly.
Nov 15 - 6:37 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started on Monday and hit just 1-of-3 shots for two points, three rebounds and nine assists in 33 minutes.

The dimes were nice and Delly could continue to start for Malcolm Brogdon (ankle) if he misses more time. But unless you're in a really deep daily league, adding Delly probably doesn't make sense, unless we get news that Brogdon will miss extended time. Right now he's just day-to-day.

Matthew Dellavedova will draw the start on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Malcolm Brogdon is day-to-day with an ankle sprain and coach Jason Kidd isn't sure when he'll be back. The Bucks are thin at PG, so Dellavedova is looking at heavy minutes. He doesn't have great upside, but is worth streaming if you're targeting assists, steals and triples. He averaged 8.1 points, 5.1 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.2 triples in 27 starts last season.
Oct 23 - 6:32 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 15 points with one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Coach Jason Kidd can play Malcolm Brogdon at three different spots and Dellavedova can also play in two spots, so there could be minutes for the Aussie guard. Still, he couldn't really string games together last year and he won't be asked to do much outside of hit treys on offense.
Oct 18 - 11:19 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (knee) is likely to play on Friday against the Pistons.

He's been back at practice and it would appear he's over his knee soreness. Malcolm Brogdon will continue to start, but it's possible Dellavedova can get some combo guard minutes along with his backup role. Still, Delly isn't worth drafting in most leagues.
Oct 11 - 4:06 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (left knee soreness) went through a full practice on Tuesday.

"It's feeling good, just taking care of it," said Dellavedova, who had a bag of ice on the knee after practice. "It is frustrating but it's part of the game. You can still get better and you can still help the team get better even though you're not fully out there for a couple days." Delly added that he's confident he'll be ready for opening night, but as Malcolm Brogdon's backup, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues this season.
Oct 11 - 9:50 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (knee soreness) went through the non-contact portions of Monday's practice.

Knee soreness won't be something that impacts Dellavedova's status for opening night, but as Malcolm Brogdon's backup, he'll be irrelevant in fantasy hoops this season.
Oct 9 - 3:40 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. Boston.

Malcolm Brogdon will likely be flirting with close to 40 minutes tonight and he figures to be one of the Bucks' primary offensive options with most of Milwaukee's stars on the sidelines, so he's someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues.
Apr 12 - 9:21 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (rest) is listed as "out" in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup vs. the Celtics.

The game notes are also listing Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Tony Snell as "not with team." It appears Malcolm Brogdon (back) will be available to play and will draw the start. However, check back for confirmation on Wednesday to make sure Delly is out and that Brogdon will suit up for the finale.
Apr 11 - 6:43 PM

Matthew Dellavedova returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Hornets, scoring five points (2-of-5 FGs) with two assists, one rebound and one triple in 22 minutes.

This is a reminder to his fantasy owners to move on now that Malcolm Brogdon (back) is back in the lineup.
Apr 10 - 10:59 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored eight points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

It was a game to forget for Delly with multiple mistakes on both ends. He's seen his minutes drop to just 19.0 per game over his last two, which is a mild surprise with Malcolm Brogdon (back) not playing in those two. Even with Brogdon very unlikely for Saturday, fantasy owners can't trust Dellavedova right now.
Apr 6 - 9:33 PM

Matthew Dellavedova was invisible in 17 minutes vs. the Thunder on Tuesday, scoring two points with two assists, one rebound and one steal.

Delly had no chance against Russell Westbrook, so the Bucks turned to Gary Payton II early and often, giving the rookie 30 minutes on the night. Even with Malcolm Brogdon (back) on the shelf, Delly is a shaky fantasy option going forward despite his impressive line in his previous outing.
Apr 4 - 11:43 PM

Matthew Dellavedova got the start Sunday in place of Malcolm Brogdon, putting up 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, two 3-pointers, six assists, one steal and one turnover in 34 minutes.

It was a solid game for Dellavedova, but we already know what he can (and can't) do in a starting role for Milwaukee. In 50 previous starts he shot just 38.9 percent for 7.9 points, 1.1 threes, 5.2 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.9 turnovers. Take tonight's solid game with a grain of salt, especially while Brogdon is day-to-day.
