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.

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.
Apr 2 - 7:52 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started at point guard on Friday vs. the Pistons and scored six points with seven assists, three rebounds and two triples in 35 minutes.

The minutes were nice, but he only shot 2-of-8 from the field. Delly wasn't worth owning as a full-time starter earlier this season, and unless Malcolm Brogdon (back) misses Sunday's game vs. Dallas, most fantasy owners should look elsewhere.
Apr 1 - 12:41 AM

Matthew Dellevedova is starting for Malcolm Brogdon (back) against the Pistons on Friday.

In the last two games Brogdon missed this month, Dellavedova only played 26.0 minutes per game, so it's not a total lock he gets heavy run. Rashad Vaughn will get some minutes, but obviously the Bucks have themselves capable ball-handlers in Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Delly isn't the best play today, but give him a look if you're feeling gritty.
Mar 31 - 6:27 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored five points with three assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The boo birds were out in force at Oracle, but that didn't stop Dellavedova from a somewhat dirty foul on Stephen Curry in the second half. Delly is way behind Malcolm Brogdon and has very little fantasy value.
Mar 19 - 1:34 AM

Matthew Dellavedova shifted to the Bucks' bench on Wednesday, where he picked up 12 points, three 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

Delly hadn't cracked 28 minutes in his previous six games -- Giannis Antetokounmpo was in foul trouble early, which helped, but the shift to the bench didn't have a clear impact on his overall role. Minutes aren't the real issue for his fantasy value though -- over the past dozen games he's averaging 9.1 points on 39.6 percent shooting, 1.3 triples, 1.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists and a miserly 0.2 steals, with zero blocks.
Mar 16 - 2:08 AM

Matthew Dellavedova will come off the bench on Wednesday.

Malcolm Brogdon is getting the start vs. Chris Paul and the Clippers tonight. Now that Brogdon (back) is healthy, this move is likely to stick down the stretch.
Mar 15 - 9:19 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started his second straight game on Saturday vs. the Wolves and scored 16 points in 28 minutes.

He flopped in Friday's start with eight points on 2-of-7 shooting, but there's not much to see here with Malcolm Brogdon (back) possibly returning on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. Delly is just a short-term streaming option for now with a low floor. He shot 5-of-12 from the field and added two assists, one rebound and four triples.
Mar 11 - 10:46 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started at point guard on Friday vs. the Pacers and scored eight points on 2-of-7 shooting.

Malcolm Brogdon (back) wasn't able to play, but the injury isn't serious and he could be back in the lineup on Saturday vs. the Wolves. Delly played just 24 minutes and basically split the PG duties with Jason Terry down the middle, adding three assists, one triple and three turnovers. He's a deep-league option at best, even if Brogdon misses more time.
Mar 10 - 10:38 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will start for Malcolm Brogdon (back) against the Pacers on Friday.

It'll be his first start since Feb. 27 and he did play 32 minutes during that game. Dellavedova should be looking at minutes in the mid-30s tonight and will likely be taking a handful of treys. Giannis Antetokounmpo should be handling the ball a lot in this game, so Delly's upside isn't the greatest. He's still a viable DFS play and a stream in season-long leagues. It's tough to drop anything with value for him because Brogdon may not be out long.
Mar 10 - 6:28 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 15 points with eight assists in Friday's win over the Clippers.

He came off the bench behind Malcolm Brogdon for the second straight game, but still played 36 minutes with the rookie getting into some foul trouble. Delly shot 6-of-9 from the field and added one rebound and one triple, but we're not expecting many more lines like this from the Aussie. He was a borderline fantasy option when he was the starter, so his outlook isn't the greatest as a reserve.
