Eric Bledsoe scored a game-high 25 points vs. the Bulls on Friday with six assists, four rebounds, one block, three steals and three triples in 30 minutes.

Chicago's defense was very generous tonight (and all season), as Bledsoe, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton combined for 71 points in the 123-104 win. Bledsoe has picked things up after a slow start with 18.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 triples in his last five games, hitting an absurd 58.1% from the field in that span.

Brook Lopez scored 14 points vs. the Bulls on Friday with five rebounds, two blocks and four triples in 30 minutes.

He also just endorsed the nickname "Splash Mountain," as Lopez is a Disney fanatic and has been red hot from 3-point range in November. "Guys know that I’m a pretty big Disney geek, a Disney nerd," Lopez said. "I wear it with pride on my sleeve. I’ll roll with that one. If it keeps going, why not? That’s fantastic." He has 20 triples to his name over his last four games and will have a higher floor moving forward with John Henson (wrist) out for several months.

Khris Middleton nearly triple-doubled vs. the Bulls on Friday with 23 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two triples in 33 minutes.

He was a +18 in the blowout, finishing 9-of-15 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line. Middleton has been on a tear over his last three games with 21, 25 and 23 points on a combined 58.1% shooting, and he's knocking on the door of top-15 value in standard leagues after a cold stretch in early November.
Nov 16 - 11:54 PM

Thon Maker scored nine points vs. the Bulls on Friday, adding three rebounds, two assists, one block and three triples in 18 minutes.

Maker is going to get an opportunity as the backup center with John Henson (wrist) likely out through the All-Star break, and he does have some upside for his blocks and triples. With that said, it's going to be tough for Maker to make an impact with minutes in the teens, especially since he only played 18 in an absolute blowout.
Nov 16 - 11:51 PM

Donte DiVincenzo suffered a minor left quadriceps strain in Wednesday’s game and will be out for the next three games, after which time he’ll be re-evaluated.

DiVincenzo has provided the Bucks with a nice boost off the bench this season, averaging 6.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 18.1 minutes per game. Pat Connaughton is expected to soak up most of Donte's abandoned minutes. Malcolm Brogdon and Tony Snell may see an uptick in playing time as well. It's also possible Matt Dellavedova re-enters the rotation.

Updating a previous item, Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that John Henson is expected to miss a minimum of 12 weeks following surgery on a torn left wrist ligament.

Per the Bucks statement, Henson initially aggravated his wrist at Portland on Nov. 6. He was able to play in the next three games before reporting additional discomfort in Wednesday night’s game vs. Memphis. An evaluation confirmed the injury and surgery will be scheduled in the near future. Shams reports that Henson does plan to return this season, but it likely won't be until after the All-Star Break. Starting center Brook Lopez is the primary beneficiary here. Thon Maker will see an uptick in playing time as well.
Nov 16 - 12:14 PM

John Henson (wrist) is listed as out for Friday against the Bulls.

He only played five minutes on Wednesday and he may have suffered the injury in that time. With Henson out, Thon Maker figures to be in the rotation, but Brook Lopez will get heavy minutes in the first unit. We should see some Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five, too.

Donte DiVincenzo (left knee) is listed as out for Friday against the Bulls.

He suffered the injury on Wednesday and did not return. With DiVincenzo out, the Bucks could give a few extra minutes to Pat Connaughton and Tony Snell, or they may add Matt Dellavedova to the rotation.

Ersan Ilyasova scored six points (3-of-7 FG) with five rebounds in 25 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Ilyasova hasn't scored in double-digits in any of his last five games. He's a decent source of boards and threes in deeper leagues, but doesn't have much upside.
Nov 14 - 11:42 PM

Malcolm Brogdon scored eight points (4-of-11 FG) with five rebounds and one block in 27 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Brogdon snapped his streak of three straight games with 20+ points in this one. He posted a game-low -30, which led to him sitting a bit down the stretch. This was just a bad game where the Bucks struggled until late.
Nov 14 - 11:12 PM

Thon Maker scored three points with two rebounds, one assist, two blocks, and one 3-pointer in nine minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Maker didn't play at all in the last two games and has mostly been used in mop-up duty so far. The Bucks were down 15 or so in the third quarter and coach Mike Budenholzer put Maker in and he provided a spark, helping lead a monster comeback. He'll need more outings like that to earn his way into the rotation.
Nov 14 - 11:05 PM

Eric Bledsoe scored 15 points (6-of-11 FG, 2-of-4 FT) with six rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Bledsoe is averaging 30.0 minutes over his last five games, which seems to be the number his coach would like to keep him around. That takes a little of the shine off of him, but he's still producing in those 30 minutes, averaging 14.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.6 assists.

Pat Connaughton scored a season-high 16 points (6-of-9 FG, 2-of-4 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Connaugton's minutes have been on the rise of late for the Bucks. He's averaging close to 20 minutes per game over his last five after not playing much to open the season. Donte DiVincenzo left the game with knee soreness and didn't return, which could open up more time for Connaughton in the short-term. He's been eating into Brogdon's minutes a bit of late, too. He's a name to keep an eye on as his role continues to grow.
Nov 14 - 10:57 PM

Khris Middleton scored 25 points (8-of-16 FG, 7-of-7 FT) with five rebounds, three assists, and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Middleton remains a very steady contributor, averaging 19.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.4 assists with 2.6 triples over his last five games. His shooting efficiency hasn't been quite as good since the calendar flipped to November, but he has been better in his last two games. He's fine.
