Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) had two points, three assists and one rebound in 10 minutes during his return on Wednesday.
Dellavedova hadn't played since Feb. 4 and his return means the Bucks enter the postseason at full health -- Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) was back tonight and Malcolm Brogdon (quad) returned on Monday. It's great to see the veteran guard healthy and active, but he's not even certain to get minutes in the postseason. Apr 11 - 11:50 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) will play Wednesday against the 76ers.

Dellavedova will be getting back from a two-month long absence tonight, so expect him to be very limited. He's not a realistic target in any setting.
Apr 11 - 11:31 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) still has no timetable for a return.

He injured his ankle back on February 4th, so he's been out for about two months. He's dealing with a Grade 3 sprain and it doesn't seem like we'll see him again during the regular season. Luckily for Milwaukee, Malcolm Brogdon (quad) is expected to return soon.
Apr 5 - 10:08 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

Dellavedova has yet to return to the Bucks lineup since injuring his ankle back on February 4th. He should be left on waivers in all formats.
Mar 9 - 11:40 AM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

There haven't been many updates on Dellavedova since he went down with the ankle injury on February 4, which suggests he's still not close. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 7 - 12:40 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) is out for Sunday against the 76ers.

He doesn't sound like he's too close to a return, but the Bucks could use him with their shallow bench. Leave Dellavedova on the wire, though.
Mar 3 - 3:14 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. Pacers.

Dellavedova has not appeared in a game since initially injuring his ankle back on February 4th. However, he has been making progress, including practicing with the team. He should be back relatively soon, but won't see enough playing time to make a fantasy impact even when he is fully healthy.
Mar 2 - 12:56 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (sprained right ankle) wasn't on the Bucks' active roster on Wednesday.

The veteran guard went through part of Monday's practice and it sounds like he was pretty active, doing cuts and getting "good lift" on his jumpers. Even when he's 100 percent, though, he'll be hard-pressed to help fantasy owners.
Feb 28 - 11:33 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (sprained right ankle) went through portions of Monday's practice.

Dellavedova was reportedly getting "good lift" on his jumpers and was able to make hard cuts, which suggests he's close. That said, he won't have much fantasy value at all as long as Eric Bledsoe is healthy.
Feb 26 - 2:26 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (sprained right ankle) went through some light workouts on Wednesday.

According to beat writer Matt Velazquez, Dellavedova had "[a] little bit of movement heading into each shot ... Looking confident, comfortable on his sprained ankle." Malcolm Brogdon (quad) isn't expected back until late March or early April, so the Bucks would get a big lift if Dellavedova can return later this month. Leave him on the waiver wire outside of the deepest leagues.

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.
