Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

The Wolves reportedly have a "tepid interest" in acquiring Tony Snell at the deadline.

Wolves head coach Tom Thibodeau coached Snell when he was in Chicago and it's no secret that Minnesota could use some help on the wings with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season and Lance Stephenson's 10-day contract off the books. It's not crazy to think that Snell could start on the Wolves next to Andrew Wiggins, but this report is firmly in the rumor stage and Snell doesn't have much upside anyways. He's not worth stashing right now.

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 14-of-17 shots to finish Sunday's All-Star game with 30 points, six rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block.

In his first All-Star game, the Bucks' star led his team in scoring despite playing just 23 minutes and sitting out down the stretch. He hammered down a put-back dunk over Stephen Curry that will make highlight reels, and generally feasted in a game with zero defense. The Bucks are one game behind Detroit for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, and Giannis' production is more important than ever with Jabari Parker (ACL surgery) out for the season.

Jason Terry said he is planning to play two more years.

"I’m going to play two more years, God willing," Terry said. "Actually, I am going to play two more years." Despite turning 40 later this year, the JET played 47 games this season with 17.1 minutes per outing. Although, the return of Khris Middleton should take minutes away from him. In fact, he's been a DNP-CD in two of the last last three games.
Feb 17 - 4:57 PM

Michael Beasley scored 14 points with three rebounds, one block and one steal in 22 minutes in Monday's win over the Nets.

With Jabari Parker (knee) out for the season, Beasley has been inserted into the starting lineup. The Beas has now scored in double-digits in four of the Bucks last five games. He's averaging 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 23.0 minutes over those five contests. He should be expected to continue to log 20-plus minutes as long as he maintains his spot in the starting lineup.

Khris Middleton cracked the 20-point plateau for the first time this season in Monday's 129-125 win in Brooklyn.

Middleton was moving very well on Monday and showed flashes of the player that emerged as a star last season. He finsihed with 20 points, seven assists, three rebounds, three steals and just one turnover in 26 minutes. He was 7-of-13 from the floor and a perfect 5-of-5 from the charity stripe, including four clutch free throws to ice the game in the closing minute. As he rounds back into shape, Middleton has a chance to be a real difference-maker in fantasy leagues over the final two months of the season.
Feb 15 - 10:37 PM

Greg Monroe had another strong game on Monday in the Bucks victory over the Nets, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

Monroe continues to come off the bench but has recently found his groove. He has tallied at least 17 points and eight boards in three straight games. Monroe is averaging 22.3 points (while shooting 76.9 percent from the floor), 9.7 rebounds and 2.0 steals over that three-game stretch. The Bucks have needed additional offense since Jabari Parker went down and Monroe has supplied it. Monroe's stock is rising, and he's on pace for a strong second half.
Feb 15 - 10:28 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo stuffed the stat sheet in Wednesday's 129-125 victory over the Nets, finishing with 33 points, nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block.

Antetokounmpo scored only eight points on Monday, so it was nice to see him bounce back in classic Greek Freak fashion on Wednesday. He was touted as a breakout candidate before the season and has most certainly lived up the hype. Giannis enters the All-Star break averaging 23.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.7 steals per game.
Feb 15 - 10:04 PM

Jabari Parker underwent surgery on Tuesday to correct his torn left ACL and his timetable has been set at 12 months.

That pretty much rules out Parker for most of next season, so he should hit the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues, and he's probably not going to be worth drafting next season. Two ACL tears to the same knee in a two-year span is certainly concerning, but we'll be tracking Parker's progress every step of the way. Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to be a usage rate monster with Parker done for the year, and it'll be Thon Maker, Michael Beasley and Mirza Teletovic splitting most the PF minutes.

Khris Middleton hit 4-of-7 shots for 11 points, two rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

He sat out his previous game on Saturday to rest, but was back at it tonight. It's going to take him some time to shake off the rust and start putting up big numbers, but there's a decent chance he'll be a valuable fantasy asset after the All-Star break. If you own him, just hang in there with him until his minutes restriction is gone, which could happen some time after the break.
Feb 13 - 11:19 PM

Malcolm Brogdon played 21 minutes off the bench on Monday and had seven points, five assists and a steal in a 102-89 win over the Pistons.

Brogdon had scored 17 and 18 points in each of his previous two games and appeared to be a beneficiary of Jabari Parker's season-ending knee injury. Brogdon wasn't great tonight, but was much better than starter Matthew Dellavedova, who failed to even score in 27 minutes. If you own Brogdon, don't let tonight's lackluster game sway you. He's worth owning right now.
Feb 13 - 11:17 PM

Greg Monroe came off the bench to hit 12-of-15 shots for 25 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and three steals in 31 minutes in Monday's 102-89 win over the Pistons.

Monroe was pretty awesome against DeAndre Drummond tonight and had 17 points, eight boards and two blocks in his previous game. With Jabari Parker's season over, John Henson getting DNPs and Thon Maker quiet in starts, Monroe could be setting up for a big finish to the season. Get him in your lineup.

Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

Tony Snell hit 5-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

Snell scored 20 points back in December, but this was the second time this season he scored 16 points. He also had 13 points on Saturday and has hit at least one 3-pointer five straight games. He's played his best ball of the season over his last two games, averaging 14.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.0 3-pointers, but we'll need to see him do it again on Wednesday against the Nets before declaring him worthy of your fantasy roster. Just keep an eye on him on Wednesday, but keep in mind he also has a good matchup against a bad Brooklyn team that night.
Feb 13 - 11:10 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit just 2-of-9 shots for eight points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in 37 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

It's nice to know the Bucks can win when Giannis isn't feeling it, as his eight points were a season low in a game in which he wasn't injured this season. He'd scored between 20 and 41 points in his previous five games and this was clearly just an off night for Giannis. He'll bounce back in the next one.
Feb 13 - 11:06 PM

Michael Beasley started and hit 10-of-13 shots for 23 points, three rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block in Monday's 102-89 win over the Pistons.

Beasley is filling in for Jabari Parker (out for season, knee surgery) and his 23 points were the most he's scored since he had 28 on Jan. 10. He's scored in double figures in three of his last four games and looked great tonight. He's averaging 27 minutes a game over his last three and his arrow is pointing up with the loss of Parker. If you need a forward, Beasley looks like a nice fantasy pickup right now.
Feb 13 - 11:02 PM

The Lakers will reportedly meet with Larry Sanders on Monday.

Sanders is trying to get back into the NBA, and he's likely willing to take a minimum level deal to do so. The Lakers currently have 15 guaranteed contracts on the roster, so if they're interested in adding Sanders, they'd need to cut someone. To be clear, nothing is imminent.
