• Eric Bledsoe struggled at the line on Monday, hitting 7-of-11 of his shots on his way to 19 points, seven assists, four steals and a block.

    He missed both of his free throw attempts, but was 6-of-13 from the floor and will be the same mid-round player no matter who is in the lineup for the Bucks. Even if they add a big man to their roster, Bledsoe’s usage should remain the same as they project to add a rolling rim protector.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez played 30 minutes on Thursday, scoring 10 points and hitting two triples, but somehow failing to grab a rebound.

    This is always mind boggling that Lopez could go a whole full night of action without getting even one rebound. He must not remember that he's seven feet tall. If we thought his last game against the Hawks was mundane, this is even more so.

  • Pat Connaughton
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton played 22 productive minutes off the bench on Thursday, finishing with 18 points and hitting two 3-pointers.

    The Bucks bench mob is really a team effort, which makes it hard to get excited about any single option. Connaughton's best opportunity would come if Wes Matthews put up more dud games in the starting lineup. This was not that game, as Matthews hit four triples for his 12 points.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo performed well once again on Thursday with 16 points and two triples in 27 minutes.

    DiVincenzo has put up similar lines over the last four games, mainly providing double-digit scoring and a few long range bombs. He has some streaming potential as a low-end player because it's clear the minutes are going to be there.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe continued his strong run with 30 points, four rebounds and six assists in 31 minutes of action on Thursday.

    There isn't a lot to say about Bledsoe. He's a top-50 asset through and through. Lock him in and reap benefits, especially with Khris Middleton out of commission.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated again with 24 points, 19 rebounds, 15 assists, three steals and a blocked shot, but struggled with his shot in a win over the Blazers on Thursday.

    Covered up by the big popcorn numbers was a real struggle with efficiency for Antetokounmpo. He shot 9-for-27 from the field and 5-for-10 from the free throw line. The inability to hit free throws consistently has been a huge crutch for GA thus far. He's having by far the worst impact on free throw percentage for fantasy purposes with his combination of volume and poor percentage, almost twice as bad as the next lowest contributor, Bam Adebayo.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (ankle) has been ruled out of Thursday's game vs. the Suns.

    This means that Jaxson Hayes and Nicolo Melli will get some extra run tonight. Both players should be productive in a favorable matchup vs. the Suns.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Frank Kaminsky (left hip contusion) will get another spot start for the Suns on Thursday.

    Kaminsky was listed as probable initially, so it looks like the big man is good to go. He's a DFS and season-long play for points and threes.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric (knee contusion) is in the starting lineup vs. the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Saric has been on a slump. Hopefully, the absence of Aron Baynes (right hip contusion) gets him going.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor is out for Thursday's game against the Suns with a sprained left ankle.

    Okafor is out again in this game, which is a shame because there's opportunity in the front court for the Pelicans with Derrick Favors hobbled. Jaxson Hayes should have a really good shot to show what he's made of.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) will be active off the bench against the Suns on Thursday.

    Ball has missed the last six games with this injury so he will naturally be limited in his first game back. This will likely mute the excitement for Nickeil Alexander-Walker going forward if Ball can get back on the ball.
