Malcolm Brogdon scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting vs. the Magic on Friday.

He was held to seven points in Wednesday's loss to the Rockets, but the matchup was a lot better tonight. Brogdon hit a career-high four triples in the loss with five assists, two rebounds and one steal, and he was third on the team in minutes played with 35. Brogdon's usage rate could take a hit with Khris Middleton (hamstring) rumored to be near a return, but his owners shouldn't be concerned. He's been the second best rookie in fantasy right behind The Process.

Greg Monroe played just 14 minutes in Friday's loss to the Magic and scored seven points on 2-of-7 shooting.

The worst nightmare for Monroe's owners came true on Friday as the Bucks used a three-man rotation at center for the first time since November (with the exception of garbage time) -- Miles Plumlee and John Henson each played 16 minutes. Hopefully the lopsided score had something to do with it, but this is worth keeping an eye on during Saturday's game vs. the Heat. Monroe added five rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he's still a hold in standard leagues despite scoring just two points in 18 minutes in his previous outing.

John Henson played just 16 minutes vs. the Magic on Friday, scoring eight points with five rebounds, two assists and a block.

He finished 3-of-4 from the field, but this game got away from the Bucks early on and coach Jason Kidd opted to use all three centers tonight -- Miles Plumlee played 16 minutes and Greg Monroe played 14. Henson's not consistent enough right now for standard-league owners and the center position in Milwaukee is one of most annoying situations in fantasy.
Jan 20 - 9:53 PM

Jabari Parker scored 25 points with six rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes vs. the Magic on Friday.

The Bucks really struggled tonight but Parker was one of the few bright spots. He finished 8-of-17 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, and this was his fourth game of January with three or more 3-pointers. It's going to be interesting to see how the rumored return of Khris Middleton (hamstring) will impact Parker's touches, but his owners have no reason to be concerned.
Jan 20 - 9:42 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo fouled out in Friday's loss to the Magic, finishing with 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting.

This was the third time that he fouled out of a game this season.The Greak Freak had to work for everything tonight and missed a lot of tough looks. He did hit all four of his free throws and was able to grab 14 rebounds with five assists, one steal and a triple, but expect a better performance on Saturday vs. the Heat.
Jan 20 - 9:26 PM

Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo were named as the starters for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team.

Giannis clearly has earned his spot and the frontcourt is tough to argue against. On the other hand, Kyle Lowry is a massive snub. He's leading all East players in real plus minus, he's first among all NBA guards with at least seven starts for true shooting percentage and his assist:turnover ratio is better than the 10 starters.
Jan 19 - 7:21 PM

Khris Middleton (hamstring) has been aiming for a return near the All-Star break, according to C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

This is the third different report to talk about a possible return near the All-Star break. Middleton has been doing some stuff at practice and has been doing some 1-on-1 since early this month. The Bucks will be managing his minutes, so it may be until late March until he's consistently contributing for your team. If you have a big lead or have a spare I.R. spot, give him a look.
Jan 19 - 4:24 PM

The Bucks are "increasingly hopeful" that Khris Middleton (hamstring) could return in early- to mid-February, according to ESPN sources.

The same sentiment was echoed by ESPN's announcers during Wednesday's game. Middleton previously said that he hoped to play just after the All-Star game, and the Bucks' organizational optimism is even more encouraging. There are no firm return dates, to be clear, and Middleton remains a very risky stash unless you have multiple IR spots or the luxury of a huge lead in your league.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 111-92 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday, adding 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He was the only player in this game to get double-digit boards and some of that was due to him playing center. This was his eighth 30-point game on the season and 17th double-double. His scoring efficiency is truly elite over his last 14, posting a 64.4 true shooting percentage on a 29.9 usage rate. Now that he has his jumper working, Giannis is one of the most unstoppable scorers in the NBA at age 22.
Jan 18 - 11:30 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

John Henson played 19 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday with four points, five rebounds, one steal and one block.

He was right at his monthly average in playing time, but there has been a slight downward trend. Henson hasn't really been in foul trouble too often, but his play has really taken a turn for the worse. He'll be in a great spot on Friday against the Magic, so a bad game there may be the final straw for his patient owners.
Jan 18 - 11:14 PM

Michael Beasley scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Revenge game? The Bucks went with a lot of small-ball lineups to help get Beasley over 20 minutes for the fourth time in his last five. In that span, Beasley averaged 14.2 points, 5.8 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.6 treys in 24.6 minutes per game. That's not really sustainable, but he's making a case to be picked up in 16-team leagues. Although, a potential Khris Middleton (hamstring) return would hurt him.
Jan 18 - 11:09 PM

Malcolm Brogdon scored seven points with eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He had to go up against Pat Beverley a lot tonight, but he's slightly cooled off since Matt Dellavedova played 20 minutes for the first time in 2017. In those five, Brogdon averaged 12.0 points, 4.4 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 treys on 42.0 percent from the field. That's still more than serviceable for his owners, so keep him rolling in all standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 11:04 PM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting in Monday's loss to the 76ers.

"Moose" only played 21 minutes in this one, as the Bucks opted to roll with John Henson for his defense against Joel Embiid. Monroe was still productive with six rebounds, two assists and one steal, but his owners can expect a stronger performance and larger workload on Wednesday vs. Houston.
Jan 16 - 6:53 PM

John Henson played 26 minutes on Monday vs. the 76ers, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting.

The Bucks needed his defense against the one they call The Process, so he reached 26 minutes for the just the second time in over a month. Henson did a respectable job and grabbed five rebounds with four assists and two blocks, but we'll need to see him do this a couple times in a row before recommending an add in standard leagues. Greg Monroe still looks like the center you want to own.
