Matthew Dellavedova hit 5-of-8 shots for 15 points, seven assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Saturday against the Heat.
The move into the starting lineup helped the slumping Dellavedova, who scored more than 10 points for the first time since Dec. 28. Although this was refreshing to see, fantasy owners can leave him on waivers, as he does not produce like he did tonight on a consistent basis. However, if he sticks in the starting unit over Malcolm Brogdon, he's at least worth putting on your watch list in case he starts playing like this on the regular. Jan 21 - 10:07 PM

Matt Dellavedova will start and Malcolm Brogdon will come off the bench against the Heat on Saturday.

This is designed to get Dellavedova going and get out of a slump, according to coach Jason Kidd. It could be a one-time thing for Delly and he wasn't playing well even when he was a starter before the injury, so leave him on the wire for now.
Jan 21 - 6:22 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored five points with two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

The Bucks are playing him next to Malcolm Brogdon at times this season, but clearly the rookie has earned the lion's share of the minutes at point guard. Dellavedova isn't worth owning in most leagues right now.
Jan 18 - 11:17 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) logged 18 minutes off the bench in his return from a five-game absence on Sunday, tallying two points, two boards, four assists, one steal and one turnover.

Dellavedova actually closed out the game playing alongside Malcolm Brogdon, so it'll be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out once Delly is free of a minutes restriction. With how well Brogdon has played as a starter, it doesn't seem all that likely that Delly will dramatically affect Brogdon's minutes, and it could be a while before we see Dellavedova back in the starting five. Delly is safe to leave on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Jan 8 - 5:11 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will be limited to 20 minutes off the bench on Sunday vs. the Wizards.

This means Malcolm Brogdon will keep the starting PG job. Delly was only averaging 7.8 points and 5.6 assists as a starter and the move to the bench certainly won't help. Standard-league owners should look elsewhere, while Brogdon's owners should be thrilled.
Jan 8 - 12:33 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) said he will play on Sunday against the Wizards.

After missing the last five games, Dellavedova should be good to go. "I'm looking forward to getting out there," Dellavedova said. "It's never fun watching." Based on well Malcolm Brogdon played, Dellavedova may have lost his starting job. Brogdon should remain owned while Delly can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 7 - 3:51 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is out for Friday night against the Knicks.

The Bucks have not missed him at all with Malcolm Brogdon playing lights out in the starting unit. Brogdon remains a player to own in all leagues while Dellavedova could see his minutes drop upon his return.
Jan 6 - 6:33 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (right hamstring strain) is listed as doubtful for Friday night's game vs. the Knicks.

Dellavedova has missed each of the last four games, which has allowed Malcolm Brogdon to make a strong case that he should be the starter going forward, even after Delly is 100 percent healthy. In his four starts, Brogdon is averaging 12.5 points, 7.3 assists and 5.8 rebounds. Brogdon's fantasy value has spiked, while Delly's has dived.
Jan 6 - 10:46 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Wednesday will mark Dellavedova's fourth straight game on the sidelines, which will allow rookie Malcolm Brogdon to earn another start at point guard. Brogdon has shown constant improvement each month this season, and over his past three starts he has compiled averages of 12.7 points, 7.0 dimes, 5.7 boards and 1.0 triple on 42.4 percent shooting. In other words, Brogdon is worth a look in most leagues, while Dellavedova can be viewed as a cut candidate everywhere.
Jan 3 - 5:07 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (right hamstring) will remain on the sidelines for Monday's game against the Thunder, which will result in Malcolm Brogdon earning another start.

This will be Brogdon's third straight start, and after posting a triple-double his last time out, he's worth a look in most formats. Jason Kidd is calling Dellavedova day-to-day with the hamstring injury, but he was losing minutes to Brogdon prior to going down, and with how well Brogdon has played he may not be returning to a starting gig once he's cleared. In other words, Delly isn't worth hanging onto in most scenarios.
Jan 2 - 5:35 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (right hamstring) remains out for Saturday against the Bulls with Malcolm Brogdon making the start again.

The Bucks did not update Dellavedova's status for next week, but there's certainly a chance he's out beyond the two games he's missed already. He's a drop candidate and Malcolm Brogdon may Wally Pipp him anyway. As for Brogdon, he's a pickup in standard leagues and is a DFS play today, as well.

Matthew Dellavedova (strained right hamstring) will not play Friday vs. Minnesota.

After struggling for most of the last month, Delly had strung together a couple of decent games recently. However, he was already losing playing time to Malcolm Brogdon. Delly's stock has been slipping, while Brogdon's has been rising. If you were looking for an excuse to drop Dellavedova and pick up Brogdon, this should suffice.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 01:22:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova hit just 1-of-9 shots for eight points on Monday, but also handed out 11 assists to go with two steals and three rebounds in 30 minutes.

Just when it looked like Delly might be ready to lose his job to Malcolm Brogdon, he came through with really solid game, especially when you consider he missed eight of his nine shots. Brogdon played 23 minutes and made all three of his shots, but finished with just six points, one assist and one steal. Brogdon is still an up-and-comer, while this was Delly's first meaningful game in quite a while. We'd rather own Brogdon for now.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 10:15:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova played just 25 minutes during Wednesday's lopsided loss to the Cavs, scoring two point with three assists, two rebounds and two steals.

Delly hasn't scored double-digit points since Dec. 9 and he went scoreless on Friday, so this isn't surprising. He's not the worst player to own, but there should be higher-upside guards on most waiver wires.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 09:50:00 PM

Matthew Dellavedova hit 4-of-7 shots for nine points, nine assists and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes of Thursday's win over the Bulls.

He hit just 1-of-8 shots for two points on Monday, but also had 10 assists, and then just missed a double-double tonight in points and dimes. Prior to the last two games, Delly had hit less than four assists in his previous four games, so it's nice to see the dimes getting back on track. He makes for a consistent and serviceable low-end point guard if you need one.
