Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 116-98 win at Sacramento on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

It's just the second time this month he's hit the 30-point mark, and Antetokounmpo scored at least 20 points in just two of his previous six games. The Bucks finally had their six-game road trip end and they'll be heading back home this weekend. Antetokounmpo is much better at home with a 54.0 field goal percentage with better averages in points, boards, steals, blocks and threes at home compared to being on the road. After a down couple weeks, Giannis should go back to being a top-three guy going forward.

Thon Maker scored four points with three rebounds in 12 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

Even with John Henson (thumb) not playing, Maker still couldn't get additional playing time. He's not going to play enough to have value in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 23 - 1:16 AM

Spencer Hawes scored 10 points with three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers against the Kings on Wednesday.

He stepped into John Henson's (thumb) role as the backup big man. Hawes could get a couple more games in the rotation, but he's still not someone fantasy owners should be turning to because of how coach Jason Kidd plays the matchups.
Mar 23 - 1:13 AM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) will be re-evaluated when the Bucks return to Milwaukee.

Henson got hurt in Portland and he sat out Wednesday's game. Owners should consider him questionable to play vs. the visiting Hawks on Friday -- if he can't suit up, Spencer Hawes looks like the biggest winner after scoring 10 points in 18 minutes on Wednesday.
Mar 23 - 1:05 AM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) will not play vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

Greg Monroe stands to gain some minutes in Henson's absence, with Thon Maker and Mirza Teletovic also in the equation. It's possible that we'll even see Spencer Hawes or Terrence Jones crack the rotation. Henson is day-to-day so this doesn't have significant long-term implications.
Mar 22 - 9:13 PM

John Henson (left thumb sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

Henson appeared to injure his left thumb on Tuesday night when Damian Lillard crossed him up, causing Henson to fall to the floor. If Henson is unable to play on Wednesday, Greg Monroe would soak up most of his minutes. Thon Maker would likely see an uptick in playing time as well.

Khris Middleton racked up 26 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 11-of-22 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's big 93-90 win over the Blazers.

Wow. He was worth the wait if you stashed him long before he came back and there was some risk involved, as no one was really sure how he'd look or fit in with the new-look Bucks. He's been fantastic, averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. With the Bucks fighting for their playoff life and seeding, Middleton should continue to roll the rest of the way. He's also played in all 12 of the Bucks' March games, scoring in double figures in all of them.
Mar 22 - 1:15 AM

Malcolm Brogdon hit 4-of-6 shots for eight points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal in 26 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

Brogdon went off for 18 points in 41 minutes on Saturday, but still hasn't been able to put together long streaks of big games. But the minutes are there, the Bucks love him and he should continue to start the rest of the way for Milwaukee. And as long as he's starting for them, he should be starting for your fantasy team.
Mar 22 - 1:10 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-21 shots for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

Giannis tweaked an ankle on Saturday, but was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. This was a huge win for the Bucks, who now sit just 1/2 game in front of the No. 8 seeded Heat. This is good news for his owners, as the Bucks are going to need everything he has to offer in order to ensure the Bucks make the playoffs.
Mar 22 - 1:05 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

He tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday, but wasn't listed on the injury report and should be fine. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Mar 21 - 10:00 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday and immediately left the game.

He scored just nine points in the blowout loss and played 31 minutes, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We expect him to play on Tuesday night, but owners of the Greek Freak should watch for injury updates prior to game time in order to be certain he's playing tonight.
Mar 21 - 6:08 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points during a blowout 117-92 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes.

The Warriors know how to defend drivers as well as just about anyone and Antetokounmpo got a little too much Draymond Green today. He came into this game with a 53.9 field goal percentage in March and he continues to flirt with his two steals and two blocks per game. His fantasy owners will have a big advantage next week with the Bucks suiting up for four games.
Mar 19 - 1:42 AM

Malcolm Brogdon scored 18 points in 41 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

After that two-game absence for a bad back, Brogdon is looking good again with averages of 12.5 points, 3.3 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 treys in those four. Brogdon's upside is still somewhat low with Khris Middleton cruising, but he looks to he locked in as a late-mid value.
Mar 19 - 1:38 AM

Matthew Dellavedova scored five points with three assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The boo birds were out in force at Oracle, but that didn't stop Dellavedova from a somewhat dirty foul on Stephen Curry in the second half. Delly is way behind Malcolm Brogdon and has very little fantasy value.
Mar 19 - 1:34 AM

Khris Middleton scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The minutes were solid and he likely would've been in the mid-30s had the Bucks been in this game. Middleton is heavily involved in the offense and is playing on the ball a lot more than expected after he said he was focusing more on shooting late in his rehab. We're not expecting him to rest until the Bucks have something clinched, so keep rolling Middleton out there.
