Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) said that is targeting a return to the court in 3-4 weeks.

He had ankle surgery in December, but this report would mean he could play as early as March. However, the Bucks will ease him back into action upon his return after such an extended absence, and he's not really worth owning in most leagues while Michael Carter-Williams and Jerryd Bayless are healthy.
Feb 13 - 11:15 AM

John Henson (back) will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

The Bucks took the cautious approach with Henson and held him out for seven straight games. He will hopefully be good to go after the break, and he isn't the worst stash if you need blocks in case the Bucks decide to move Greg Monroe at the deadline. He owns season averages of 6.8 points, 3.9 boards, 1.0 assist and 2.0 blocks in 16.7 minutes.

Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) still has no timetable for a return.

He was reportedly aiming to return to the court at the end of January, but that was always way too optimistic. The Bucks are falling out of the playoff hunt, so they won't be in a hurry to rush the guard back. Vasquez is not worst stashing in most formats.

Bucks coach Jason Kidd praised Jerryd Bayless for his improved 3-point shot.

"He has worked extremely hard at it and put a lot of time into it," Kidd said. "He is not short on confidence, so right now he is shooting the three at a very high level." Bayless has the fifth best 3-point percentage in the NBA at 43.6 percent, and he's also playing well off the bench with averages of 11.6 points, 3.4 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.8 treys over his last five games. If Michael Carter-Williams is dealt at the deadline, Bayless would be worth a pickup.

Khris Middleton scored 27 points with six rebounds, nine assists, five steals and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes during a 99-92 win over the Wizards on Thursday.

Finally. Middleton has not played well in February, averaging just 18.3 points, 4.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.8 treys on 35.2 percent from the field in his previous games this month. While he hasn't played well under Jason Kidd, this seems like a coincidence. Expect Middleton to be better. Additionally, the Bucks making moves would help him.
Feb 11 - 11:07 PM

Jabari Parker scored 17 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and four turnovers against the Wizards on Thursday.

The Wizards have been killed at the four, so this was a nice output. Parker is still only a low-end fantasy asset thanks to a lack of defensive stats and treys.
Feb 11 - 11:02 PM

Greg Monroe scored 12 points with nine rebounds, one assist and two steals in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

It wasn't the greatest game for Monroe, who actually played more than his 30 minutes on Tuesday. He is unlikely to be dealt and should be a top 25-50 player going forward.
Feb 11 - 11:00 PM

O.J. Mayo scored two points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block, three turnovers and four fouls in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

Yeah, this is another case of don't overrate starters. Mayo did get in early foul trouble again, but he is still not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Feb 11 - 10:57 PM

Michael Carter-Williams will come off the bench against the Wizards on Thursday.

MCW will again be replaced by O.J. Mayo in the Bucks starting lineup, but is still likely to play his usual complement of minutes. Fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much as Mayo is likely being showcased for a trade, so MCW is still the point guard to own in Milwaukee.
Feb 11 - 11:08 AM

John Henson (back) will not play against the Wizards on Thursday.

It'll be Miles Plumlee starting again on Thursday. Hopefully, Henson will be back after the break and get close to 20 minutes. He's not the worst stash out there on the off chance the Bucks break up their team.
Feb 10 - 3:30 PM

Greg Monroe and Michael Carter-Williams will come off the bench again on Thursday against the Wizards.

It worked out for Monroe with 29 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes in a big win. He and Michael Carter-Williams will back up Miles Plumlee and O.J. Mayo. Plumlee and Mayo are not strong pickups with Mayo the more appealing add in deep leagues.
Feb 10 - 3:24 PM

Jerryd Bayless played 32 minutes vs. the Celtics on Tuesday with 14 points, two assists, one board and four 3-pointers.

O.J. Mayo and Michael Carter-Williams were both in foul trouble, so that explains the bump in minutes. Bayless was getting 27.7 minutes per game in February prior to Tuesday, but that number could dip with Mayo back in the mix. He's better suited for deeper leagues, but is also someone to watch in case MCW is moved at the trade deadline.
Feb 9 - 11:17 PM

Khris Middleton scored 20 points in a win over the Celtics on Tuesday to help the Bucks snap a five-game losing streak.

He added five boards, five assists and two 3-pointers and shot 6-of-17 from the field with three turnovers. The Bucks have been giving him a massive workload with an average of 38.0 minutes over his last five games, so that might explain why he is shooting just 32.1 percent from the field in that span. He's going to be fine and should be a fourth- or fifth-round guy moving forward.
Feb 9 - 11:12 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 14 points with three boards, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 37 minutes in a win over the Celtics on Tuesday.

The Bucks benched Michael Carter-Williams and Greg Monroe in favor of O.J. Mayo and Miles Plumlee tonight, but Antetokounmpo's role is always going to be safe and he is reportedly the only untouchable player on the roster as we approach the trade deadline. He was 6-of-12 from the field tonight and now has at least one steal and one block in three straight games, so he should be treated as a top-50 player moving forward.
Feb 9 - 11:02 PM

Michael Carter-Williams was benched in favor of O.J. Mayo for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics, but he responded with 16 points, six boards, five assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

Coach Jason Kidd said that MCW will keep all of his minutes despite his new bench role, but unfortunately he picked up five fouls tonight. Regardless, MCW played really well and was an efficient 6-of-8 from the field with just a couple of turnovers, so his owners should feel a little more encouraged. For now, MCW is still the PG to own in Milwaukee. As for Mayo, he failed to score in 18 minutes with eight assists.
