Brook Lopez (back) has been listed as out for the Bucks' Monday night contest vs. the Wizards.
The Bucks are hoping this is a short-term thing. Coach Mike Budenholzer reiterated that he didn't think Lopez would miss much time but until there is another update, we can't say anything definitively.

Robin Lopez made a splash off the bench for the Bucks on Saturday, chipping in 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, including two 3s, plus one assist and one block.
Lopez has not made any significant impact in fantasy prior to this solid outing, so he can be left on the worse for now.
February 23, 2020, 3:24 amEric BledsoePG, Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe had a productive outing in Saturday’s win over the Sixers with 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting, adding eight assists, two treys and four rebounds.
Bledsoe has been looking good as of late, having stabilized with reliable value. The Bucks are in cruise control right now and Bledsoe owners can confidently keep him slotted into their active lineups in all formats.
February 23, 2020, 3:13 amGiannis AntetokounmpoPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo went HAM on the Sixers on Saturday to lead the Bucks to a 119-98 victory over the Sixers with 31 points on 12-of-17 shooting, adding 17 rebounds, eight assists, two 3s and one block.
For whatever reason, Giannis loves stomping on the Sixers and gaudy lines like this have been the norm. This a top-end line from him, but we’re sure no one’s gonna complain outside of Sixers fans.

Brook Lopez scored 18 points on Thursday night in 24 minutes of action as the Bucks routed the Pistons 126-106.
Lopez was very efficient while making 9-of-10 from the line. Unfortunately, this was a pretty empty line because he only pulled down two boards and didn't block any shots. He should still be a top-50 asset going forward and he should continue to block shots at high volume.
February 20, 2020, 10:09 pmEric BledsoePG, Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe scored 19 points to go along with four rebounds and six assists in 27 minutes in Thursday's win over the Pistons.
Bledsoe added two triples and three defensive counters to a great line. Bled has had some rough patches at times this year, but he's really hitting his stride and he is a must-start option for all fantasy teams.
February 20, 2020, 10:03 pmGeorge HillPG, Milwaukee Bucks
George Hill played 20 quiet minutes on Thursday, scoring four points and dishing out three assists.
Hill returned to the court in this game and he was a welcome return for the Bucks. He was not particularly productive in this one, but he is a reliable and steady producer for this team who continues to be underrated from a real team standpoint. He'll be a deep-league option going forward.
February 20, 2020, 10:00 pmKhris MiddletonSF, Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton continued his strong run of play on Thursday with 28 points, eight rebounds, four triples in 32 minutes against the Pistons.
Middleton is the perfect Robin to GA's Batman. He just goes to work and does his job. That quiet production has vaulted him to 21st overall in 9-cat leagues because he just doesn't hurt fantasy teams (or the Bucks, for that matter) in any way. Just like his nickname, he has been Khash money all year.
February 20, 2020, 9:56 pmGiannis AntetokounmpoPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo led from the front in Thursday's win over the Pistons, with 33 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block.
Antetokounmpo was sharp in this game and went right back to his MVP ways after missing the last two games before the All-Star break for the birth of his child. The Bucks are the team to beat right now so we'll see how much rest GA gets going forward after 32 minutes in this blowout.
February 20, 2020, 10:54 amGiannis AntetokounmpoPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Every executive that spoke to ESPN's Tim Bontemps believes Giannis Antetokounmpo will re-sign with the Bucks.
Antetokounmpo's free agency has been shaping every team's decisions over the past few months, if not longer, as teams are trying to open up max space in the summer of 2021 to go after the reigning MVP. Milwaukee has built an excellent team around him and an early playoff exit might be the only thing that will sour Giannis on the organization. If he does re-sign without entering the open market, expect a wave of player movement as team make use of their flexibility with the league's top target off the board. This is all still a long ways off, but the prevailing sentiment seems to be that Giannis isn't going anywhere.
February 19, 2020, 5:34 pmGeorge HillPG, Milwaukee Bucks
George Hill (left hamstring strain) is not on the injury report for Thursday's game.
Hill had missed the previous seven games before the All-Star break but should be good to go tomorrow. He's a deep-league option and is the rare point guard who is actually a boost to efficiency.

Kyle Korver (back soreness) will not play on Thursday.
Korver's been on and off the injury report all year long and isn't a fantasy option in just about any format.

Giannis Antetokounmpo could not will his team to the win against Team LeBron on Sunday in what was the most competitive All-Star Game we have seen in quite some time.
Antetokounmpo scored 25 points with 11 boards on 12-of-21 shooting. He had two clutch blocks on LeBron James to keep his team alive, but ultimately Team LeBron was able to overpower Team Giannis. Antetokounmpo's value is being dragged down by free-throw shooting and turnovers, but he remains a top-30 asset nonetheless.
February 13, 2020, 12:07 amDonte DiVincenzoSG, Milwaukee Bucks
Donte DiVincenzo put up a strong performance in the Bucks' loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, tallying 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting in 30 minutes off the bench.
DiVincenzo also added eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three treys to the box. It should be noted that Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) missed this game. Nonetheless, DDV has been enough of a value play to be worth keeping at the end of fantasy benches in most formats. Pick him up if available.
February 13, 2020, 12:07 amMarvin WilliamsPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Marvin Williams made his debut for the Bucks on Wednesday and scored nine points with four rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) sat out on Wednesday which opened up an opportunity for Williams. Williams will play limited minutes for a deep Bucks team and can be left on the waiver wire.
