Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks due to a Grade 3 right ankle sprain, according to Chris Hayes of ESPN.
Dellavedova initially injured the ankle Sunday in Brooklyn and was sent back to Milwaukee to undergo further examination. The Bucks are now dangerously thin at point guard, as Malcolm Brogdon (knee) is also out indefinitely. Starting PG Eric Bledsoe will log as minutes as he can handle, and Giannis Antetokounmpo will likely be asked to facilitate the offense more often than usual. Sean Kilpatrick and Jason Terry will see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Feb 6 - 10:29 AM

Matthew Dellavedova has been sent back to Milwaukee to undergo further examination on his sprained right ankle, and he will not play Tuesday in New York.

It's not great that Dellavedova is headed back to Milwaukee, and it sounds like there's a chance he could miss the remainder of this three-game road trip. With Malcolm Brogdon (knee) also out, Tony Snell could be forced into heavy minutes, with guys like Sean Kilpatrick and Jason Terry also seeing more time in the rotation.
Feb 5 - 3:31 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (sprained right ankle) will not return on Sunday vs. the Nets.

He left the game in the fourth quarter and probably wasn't going to close anyway, finishing with two points and two assists in 14 minutes. If he's forced to miss time, Jason Terry (personal) may be asked to step up.
Feb 4 - 1:56 PM

Matt Dellavedova did not score with two rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 25 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.

He'll be asked to play more now because it would appear Malcolm Brogdon (quad tendon) will be missing games. On the other hand, he'll only be taking the occasional open trey with a handful of dimes. If your fantasy league has grit as a category, give Delly a look. For the rest of us, you can probably do better with so many fantasy pickups right now.
Feb 1 - 11:45 PM

Matt Dellavedova started the third quarter for Malcolm Brogdon on Thursday.

He'll be out there for defense and his grit, but Dellavedova won't have much fantasy value.
Feb 1 - 9:22 PM

Matt Dellavedova was ejected on Saturday for a flagrant two.

He committed an obvious foul up high on Bradley Beal and this was an easy call (video in link below). Dellavedova won't be missed too much here with Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe around.
Jan 6 - 10:02 PM

Matthew Dellavedova finished Monday's game with six points, 10 assists, five rebounds and a pair of 3-pointers, playing 29 minutes with just one turnover.

This follows a nine-assist performance from Friday, and Dellavedova hit a crucial 3-pointer tonight to give the Bucks a two-point lead in a game they eventually lost in OT. He hasn't scored double-digit points since Nov. 11, of course, and there should be more appealing assists-specialists on any waiver wire.
Jan 1 - 11:13 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) back in action.

The Bucks will go with their standard starting five of Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Antetokounmpo and John Henson tonight, so Dellavedova will likely see his playing time reduced to the lower teens. He's not worth owning anywhere.

Matthew Dellavedova posted four points with three rebounds, three assists and a game-high plus-18 rating in Saturday's loss in Charlotte.

Delly was making the start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), but he didn't come anywhere close to replacing the offense of the Greek Freak. The guard hit just 2-of-5 from the floor, but at least he didn't turn it over. Even in a starting role Dellavedova isn't a major fantasy asset at this time.

Matthew Dellavedova will start Saturday's game in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee).

Dellavedova has been on a strict minute-limit since returning from his own knee injury this week, however, so even as a starter his upside is severely limited. Giannis' absence should ensure that Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe are very active offensively tonight.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 05:38:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova moved to the bench against the Hornets on Friday with zero points and four assists in 14 minutes.

He was restricted to minutes in the teens as he's slowly working his way back from a knee injury, but he may stay around this range with Eric Bledsoe playing really well. He's not a fantasy asset in most leagues.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 11:43:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will move to the bench against the Hornets on Friday.

He's expected to see minutes in the low double digits. Dellavedova's playing time is not going to see much of an increase with Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon way ahead of him in the pecking order.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 06:24:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (knee) started Tuesday's game and scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting with two 3-pointers and one steal in just 11 minutes.

Jason Kidd said the Bucks want to ramp up Dellavedova's strict minute-limit, and that inserting him into the starting unit tonight "would start that process." He was coming off a 15-game absence so it's no surprise to see him very limited, and his workload should steadily increase in the coming weeks. Even at full strength, though, he's unlikely to play enough to help most fantasy owners now that Eric Bledsoe is in Milwaukee.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 11:47:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (knee) will replace DeAndre Liggins in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Dellavedova hasn't played since mid-November, so while he'll be starting tonight, he'll be working with a strict minutes limit and can't be viewed as a viable target in any league. It'll be interesting to see if he messes with Malcolm Brogdon's minutes once he's fully up to speed, but for now, Dellavedova belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 06:24:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (knee) is expected to be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs.

Dellavedova has been sidelined for five weeks, having last played back on November 13th. However, his fantasy value will be severely limited even when he's fully healthy, as he's the third-string PG on the roster behind Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon.
