September 21, 2018, 3:44 pmRobert Johnson - G - Milwaukee Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks have waived guards Robert Johnson, James Young and Ike Nwamu.
All three are fringe talents so weren’t on any fantasy radars even before this news.
April 25, 2018, 2:40 pmJohn Henson - PF/C - Milwaukee Bucks
John Henson (back) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's Game 6 matchup against the Celtics.
Henson had a huge role in Game 1 and 2 losses, playing 37 minutes per game in each. He missed Game 3 and 4 and subsequently the Bucks won both behind 10 total blocks from Thon Maker. However, Maker disappeared in Game 5 and the Bucks lost again on the road. It looks like Henson will miss yet another game so it will be up to the 21-year-old Maker to come through again like he did in Game 3 and 4. He has played well at home and he could be a cheap DFS play for a potential elimination Game 6.

April 24, 2018, 10:24 pmJabari Parker - SF - Milwaukee Bucks
Jabari Parker shot 7-for-15 from the field for 17 points with eight boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes during the Bucks' 92-87 loss in Game 5 to the Celtics on Tuesday.
Jabari hit a low-point in Game 2, when he played just 10 minutes and went 0-for-2 for zero points. Since then, he has averaged 16.3 points in Games 3-5 and has made notable defensive plays to help his team. Still, Milwaukee inner circles do not see him as a great fit for the future of the team.
April 24, 2018, 10:18 pmKhris Middleton - SF - Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton shot 9-for-21 from the field for 23 points with three boards, two assists and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes on Tuesday during the Bucks' Game 5 loss.
Middleton hit two big 3-pointers in the final 30 seconds, but it was too little too late as the Bucks couldn't get late stops to capture a lead. He was surprisingly off for most of the game and took more than double the shots than his teammate, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Middleton didn't register any defensive stats either, putting a damper on his fantasy line. The Bucks will fight for their lives in Game 6 on Thursday in Milwaukee.
April 24, 2018, 10:13 pmGiannis Antetokounmpo - SF/PF - Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 5-for-10 from the field and 6-for-9 from the line for 16 points, 10 boards, nine assists, two steals and two blocks in 41 minutes during Game 5's 92-87 loss to the Celtics on Tuesday.
Giannis only took 10 out of the Bucks' 87 shots on Tuesday, which is a rarity for such a high-volume, efficient player. The Celtics certainly worked hard to keep the ball out of his hands, a task that falls a little too easy at times for the Bucks. The team goes through lulls where Giannis doesn't get touches on offense, something you don't want to see as a fan and from an efficiency standpoint. The Bucks now trail 2-3 in the best-of-seven series. Game 6 is Thursday.
April 24, 2018, 11:35 amJohn Henson - C - Milwaukee Bucks
John Henson did not travel to Boston and he will remain sidelined for tonight’s game.
This will be the third consecutive game he misses but his absence has actually made wonders for the Bucks. Thon Maker has emerged as a solid rim protector while disrupting the Celtics’ offense with his length and it will be interesting to see if the youngster will be able to continue his impressive play in Game 5 tonight. Tyler Zeller should start again in Henson’s place.

April 22, 2018, 6:03 pmGiannis Antetokounmpo - SF/PF - Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo tipped home the game-winning bucket with five seconds left in Sunday's 104-102 victory, capping off another big performance that included 27 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
The Greek Freak also put Al Horford on a poster and had some big buckets to stem the tide as Milwaukee frittered away a 20-point lead. Antetokounmpo landed on the foot of Aron Baynes and tweaked his ankle but stayed in the game and obviously made a huge impact the rest of the way. Realistically, he's in no danger of missing Game 5. This has quickly become one of the more compelling series in round one.
April 22, 2018, 5:59 pmKhris Middleton - SG/SF - Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton was excellent yet again on Sunday, helping Milwaukee even their first round series with 23 points (8-of-14 shooting), six rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.
Middleton has been superb from the jump in this series and is a big reason why the Bucks are even at 2-2. He's really exerting his will on offense and has held up nicely on the other end as well, though he can occasionally struggle against players with a quick first step. Shutting him down has to be key to Boston's game plan for the rest of this series, but the way Middleton is playing right now it might be too much to ask for.
April 22, 2018, 5:56 pmJabari Parker - PF - Milwaukee Bucks
Jabari Parker had a nice game in Sunday's home win, posting 16 points, seven rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals and three blocks.
Parker was a little upset by his lack of activity earlier in the series but made the most of his 25 minutes tonight. Perhaps he'll be able to carry the home cooking forward to Game 5 and beyond, as he was average at best in the series' first two contests. There's still some work to be done on the defensive end for Parker, but there's no disputing that he came up with a big game today.
