Giannis Antetokounmpo filled it up as per usual during a 115-108 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 32 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one block, one 3-pointer and five steals in 42 minutes.

The steals move him up to No. 10 for total steals on the year and he holds his No. 10 spot for blocks, so he's obviously the only player in the top 10 for both. Antetokounmpo is fourth in total points thanks to his 33.3 usage rate, which hasn't dropped too much since Eric Bledsoe arrived. The Greek Freak shows no signs of slowing down and the Bucks being in the thick of the playoff race probably helps how many games he plays in April.
Dec 13 - 11:52 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 14 points with three rebounds, five assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He is piling up the steals with 10 over his last three games. The Bucks have always been really aggressive in trapping and jumping out on pick-and-roll defense, so that may have been part of the reason why Bledsoe is thriving in the steals department. He's not really being asked to distribute the ball on offense, but he's still dropping 20 per game over his last five outings. He's doing just fine.
Dec 13 - 11:42 PM

Khris Middleton scored 15 points with five rebounds, 10 assists and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He's seemed to figure out how to play next to Eric Bledsoe as he doesn't really hold the ball like most guys who are asked to run the offense at times. Middleton has basically put up six solid games in a row, averaging 21.8 points, 4.3 boards, 5.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 2.5 treys on 52.3 percent from the field. His steals are still lacking on the year, but Middleton's hot streak has him coming in as a top-35 player in standard leagues.

Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

Tony Snell (left patellar tendinitis) is listed as out in the game notes for Wednesday's game vs. New Orleans.

Snell has missed two consecutive contests and appears on track to sit out a third. Gary Payton, DeAndre Liggins and Rashad Vaughn will continue to divvy up additional minutes in Snell's absence.

Matthew Dellavedova (knee) was able to practice with the Bucks on Monday.

Dellavedova has missed 12 straight games for Milwaukee but is slowly working his way back into game shape. He will likely be cleared to return sometime this week. However, he will see only limited minutes off the bench behind Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon even when he is fully healthy. He can be left on waivers.

Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

Tony Snell (left patellar tendinitis) did not practice with the team on Monday.

Snell miss both ends of a back-to-back this past weekend due to the knee issue. The Bucks next game is Wednesday in New Orleans. We should have an update on Snell's status after Tuesday's practice. If Snell is unable to play Wednesday, Gary Payton, DeAndre Liggins and Rashad Vaughn will split Snell's abandoned minutes.
Dec 12 - 9:11 AM

Malcolm Brogdon posted 16 points across 27 minutes off the bench in Saturday's home victory against the Jazz.

Brogdon hit 6-of-13 from the field, although he was 0-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two rebounds, two assists and two steals with just one turnover. He continues to see plentiful minutes with Tony Snell (knee) on the shelf and Gary Payton doing very little offensively despite his starting role. He might not be starting, but Brogdon is an important contributor in Cream City and a decent option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Dec 10 - 1:50 AM

Eric Bledsoe was good for 20 points, four rebounds and three steals with an assist across 35 minutes in Saturday's 117-100 win against the Jazz.

Bledsoe is enjoying his most productive stretch since arriving in Cream City, posting his first three-game stretch with 20 or more points. He is also working on a 10-game stretch with at least one 3-pointer, and he has a 12-game run with at least one steal. Even when he isn't putting up big point totals he is chipping in across the board in multiple categories.
Dec 10 - 1:45 AM

Khris Middleton dropped in 20 points in Saturday's 117-110 win against the visiting Jazz.

Middleton was a very efficient 8-of-13 from the field, including 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, and he added five rebounds with five assists and just one turnover across 38 minutes. He is shooting really well over his past seven outings, hitting 54-of-91 (59.3 percent) from the floor while averaging 22.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists during the solid stretch. He also has at least one 3-pointer in nine consecutive outings.
Dec 10 - 1:38 AM

John Henson chipped in with 11 points, seven rebounds and four blocked shots across 26 minutes in Saturday's victory against the Jazz.

Henson's blocked shots tied a season best, as he also had four swats in the team's regular-season opener back on Oct. 18 in Boston. His point production can be rather erratic but he is a steady contributor in the rebounds and blocked shots categories. Just don't rely on Henson for much else.
Dec 10 - 1:33 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 37 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 39 minutes in Saturday's 117-100 win against Utah.

The Greek Freak was up to his usual tricks, hitting 14-of-22 from the field and 8-of-9 from the charity stripe. He is averaging a ridiculous 32.4 points, 11.4 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocked shots in five outings in the month of December. The Bucks are rolling right along with six victories over the past seven, and he is having his way for his real-life team and fantasy players who have stock in him.
Dec 10 - 1:30 AM

Matt Dellavedova (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

Even when he's healthy, there's a chance Dellavedova doesn't get minutes every night now that Eric Bledsoe is around.
Dec 9 - 7:02 PM
Tony Snell - G/F - Bucks

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

Snell was sidelined on Friday vs. Dallas, and it appears he will miss both ends of the back-to-back. Gary Payton, DeAndre Liggins and Rashad Vaughn will likely divvy up most of Snell's minutes again on Saturday. However, they are not attractive streaming or DFS options. Those three combined to play 35 minutes on Friday but scored just five points combined.

Dec 9 - 12:23 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (left knee) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Utah.

Dellavedova has been sidelined for nearly a month but is inching closer to a return as he has made solid progress in his rehab this week. However, Delly will see only limited minutes off the bench behind Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon even when he is fully healthy. As a result, Dellavedova will have a very minimal fantasy impact going forward.
