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.

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.
Mar 19 - 1:33 AM

Greg Monroe is available to play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

Monroe was ejected on Friday vs. the Lakers for shoving Nick Young, but the NBA isn't going to step in and issue a suspension. Get him active.
Mar 18 - 9:41 PM

John Henson blocked four shots on Friday vs. the Lakers with eight points, nine rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

Greg Monroe was ejected in the third quarter, so Henson closed this game out for the Bucks and played well. He's averaging 6.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games, but the problem is that he's getting just 17.6 minutes per game in that span and coach Jason Kidd has pulled him out of the rotation in the past without warning. For now, he's more of a deep-league pickup if you need blocks.
Mar 18 - 1:30 AM

Khris Middleton scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

He missed his only two 3-point attempts, but finished 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line with two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Middleton has played 30+ minutes in nine out of his last 10 games and hasn't rested since Feb. 27, so double check to make sure he's active for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors in Golden State.
Mar 18 - 1:24 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points before fouling out of Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

He fouled out of a game for the fourth time this season, but at least this time he fouled out in the final minute. Giannis shot 11-of-16 from the field in 35 minutes, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one triple and four turnovers. The Bucks have won eight out of their last nine games and are seventh in the East, so the Greek Freak will feast the rest of the way with four games on the schedule in each of the next two weeks.
Mar 18 - 1:18 AM

Greg Monroe was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

Nick Young pushed Malcolm Brogdon after a hard foul, but Monroe came over and aggressively shoved Young in the neck area. While a suspension isn't likely, it wouldn't hurt to confirm his status for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors just in case. Monroe finished with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and three blocks in just 16 minutes.
