Eric Bledsoe finished with 19 points in Saturday's 115-111 road loss against the Rockets.

Bledsoe hit 7-of-18 from the floor, but he was a dismal 1-of-7 from behind the 3-point line. He isn't the big man on campus like he was in Phoenix, and it's showing over the past three games as he is averaging just 15.0 points per game while his rebounds and assists have also been down in December. He is still a must-start, but co-existing with Giannis Antetokounmpo isn't easy.
Dec 17 - 1:24 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with a team-high 28 points across 42 minutes in Saturday's road loss against the Rockets.

Win or lose, Antetokounmpo is always productive. He also chipped in with nine rebounds, five assists and four steals while hitting 10-of-22 from the field. The Greek Freak has dropped 20 or more points in 19 consecutive outings since a rare egg laying in Charlotte back on Nov. 1. He'll look to keep it rolling Tuesday against LeBron James and the visiting Cavaliers.
Dec 17 - 1:16 AM

Malcolm Brogdon dropped in 20 points off the bench in Saturday's 115-111 loss in Houston.

Brogdon was a very impressive 7-of-12 from the field while knocking down 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. He also hit 3-of-3 from the free-throw stripe while chipping in with four rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and a steal. Brogdon will have company in the backcourt, as the team plans to sign Sean Kilpatrick. It is going to be an awfully crowded backcourt once Matthew Dellavedova (knee) and Tony Snell (knee) can return, and that's not good for Brogdon's fantasy outlook.
Dec 17 - 1:07 AM

Khris Middleton finished with 23 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals over 34 minutes in Saturday's 115-111 loss in Houston.

Middleton was 8-of-17 from the field, including 3-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, while connecting on 4-of-4 from the free-throw stripe. He is enjoying his most productive month of the season in terms of offense, averaging 22.9 points per game through eight outings in December. Middleton continues to posted top-35 production in standard leagues.
Dec 17 - 1:03 AM

John Henson finished with five points and eight rebounds over 32 minutes in Saturday's loss in Houston.

Henson also chipped in with an assist and a blocked shot, but he turned it over twice and he had four personal fouls which seemed to affect his aggressiveness. The poor scoring total snapped a three-game streak with double-digit points, his longest such stretch of the season. He continues to be a decent source of blocked shots and rebounds, but don't expect much more.
Dec 17 - 12:58 AM

The Bucks are planning to sign Sean Kilpatrick, according to ESPN.com's Chris Haynes.

The Nets had to cut him to make room for Jahlil Okafor and Nik Stauskas. It's hard to believe that Kilpatrick had a headphones advertisement near Barclays Center, but now he'll be heading up north to add some depth to the Bucks. By the time he's up to speed, chances are Tony Snell and/or Matt Dellavedova are back.
Dec 17 - 12:23 AM

The Bucks are planning to waive Gary Payton II in the coming days, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

His two-way deal ends on Monday, so the Bucks are not going to convert him a la Mike James in Phoenix. Payton was getting some starts to help their perimeter defense, but this could mean either Tony Snell or Matt Dellavedova are getting close to a return.
Dec 16 - 11:52 PM

Gary Payton II will move to the bench on Saturday against the Rockets.

He's probably not going to be in the rotation today. Payton only played 10 minutes in a start on Friday.
Dec 16 - 6:48 PM

DeAndre Liggins will start over Gary Payton II against the Rockets on Saturday.

This is likely a defensive move to add some length against James Harden. Liggins only played three minutes in the last game and his usage rate is just 9.0 on the year. He really can't be trusted in fantasy.
Dec 16 - 6:42 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (knee) is listed as out in the game notes for Saturday's contests vs. Houston.

Dellavedova hasn't played since Nov. 13 due to the knee injury. Even when healthy, he'll see only limited minutes off the bench behind Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon. Delly should be left on waivers.

Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

Tony Snell (left patellar tendinitis) is listed as out in the game notes for Saturday's matchup vs. the Rockets.

Snell has been sidelined for each of the Bucks last four games and appears on track to miss a fifth. Gary Payton, DeAndre Liggins and Rashad Vaughn will likely continue to divvy up additional minutes in Snell's absence.

Dec 16 - 11:57 AM

Rashad Vaughn posted nine points with four assists and two rebounds over 29 minutes in a loss against the Bulls on Friday.

Vaughn played plenty of minutes off the bench, as he and Gary Payton II fill the void with Tony Snell (knee) on the mend. He hit just 3-of-10 from the field with 2-of-8 from behind the 3-point line. Vaughn is seeing a little more playing time lately, but he isn't doing enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest leagues.
Dec 16 - 12:22 AM

Gary Payton II started Friday's game against the Bulls, but he played just 10 minutes while posting three points.

Payton is getting a chance to start with Tony Snell (knee) on the shelf, but even as a member of the starting five he is doing very little to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of leagues. GPII has averaged just 4.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists over the past three games while averaging just 13.3 minutes per outing.
Dec 16 - 12:19 AM

John Henson posted 11 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots across 20 minutes in Friday's 115-109 loss against the Bulls.

Henson was on his way to a big night, hitting 5-of-6 from the field, but his output was limited because he was in foul trouble early. Still, the line was nothing to sneeze at and he has a season-high three-game streak with double-digit points while he is working on a five-game run with six or more rebounds. Henson is averaging 12.0 PPG, 6.7 RPG and 2.7 BPG over his past three outings.
Dec 16 - 12:06 AM

Khris Middleton finished tied for a game high with 29 points in Friday's 115-109 loss against the visiting Bulls.

Middleton hit 9-of-19 from the field with six rebounds, six assists and four steals across 42 minutes while hitting 2-of-9 on 3-pointers and 9-of-9 from the charity stripe. He is having a good week, posting 21.3 points, 7.0 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game over his past three outings. He is humming along as a top-35 in standard leagues.
