Fantasy News

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo was outstanding in Sunday's 125-130 loss to the Sixers, racking up an insane line of 52 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block, three 3-pointers and just one turnover while shooting 15-of-26 from the field and 19-of-21 from the line.

    Giannis checked every single box in this one, from the low turnovers to the 3-pointers to the fantastic day at the line. This was Antetokounmpo in his final form, and it'll be a terrifying day when he fully unlocks the next level instead of visiting it a handful of times throughout the season.

  • Brook Lopez - C - Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez survived a matchup with Joel Embiid on Sunday (at least from a fantasy perspective), putting up 14 points, four rebounds, a steal, four blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Lopez has struggled in certain matchups along these lines in the past, so it's great to see him turn in a good line despite getting bodied on the other end. Khris Middleton went for 19-7-6 with three triples and Eric Bledsoe had 12-5-6 with a pair of steals. Expect everyone to pull on the rope a bit more tightly with Malcolm Brogdon out.

  • Pat Connaughton - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton played a bench-high 25 minutes on Sunday, posting six points, three rebounds, a steal, a block and a pair of 3-pointers.

    Connaughton looked like the big beneficiary with Malcolm Brogdon out, even if he didn't start. George Hill is still on a minutes cap and only played 11 minutes, while Tony Snell went from listed starter to eight minutes. There's only deep-league appeal here, with Connaughton the best bet until Hill isn't limited anymore.

  • Nikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Nikola Mirotic was a letdown in Sunday's start for Malcolm Brogdon, going 1-for-7 from the floor to finish with two points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes.

    Mirotic's playing time didn't change much despite the new role, so expectations might need to be tempered even if he does run away with the new gig. Middle-round numbers are easy in this type of workload but Mirotic might need to get hot to finish with a bang.

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (bilateral heel bursitis) will not play on Sunday against the Sixers.

    DiVincenzo made a brief return from persistent heel problems about a week ago but is back on the shelf. The rookie could be part of the committee that helps replace Malcolm Brogdon, but there won't be a ton of fantasy value.

  • Nikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Nikola Mirotic, not Tony Snell, will start for Malcolm Brogdon (plantar fascia) on Sunday.

    Snell was listed as a starter in Milwaukee's game notes but coach Budenholzer said that it'll be Mirotic getting the nod. It's a potentially big boost for his fantasy owners, as although Mirotic is unlikely to get enough usage to match his early-round days with the Pelicans, more playing time never hurts. Snell should see more minutes headed his way regardless, but is not much of a fantasy option.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (left groin strain) will remain on a minutes limit on Sunday.

    Hill returned Friday after about four weeks on the shelf, logging seven minutes and collecting no stats. He's in line for increased playing time down the stretch with Malcolm Brogdon out but isn't a fantasy option until he gets back to a full workload, and even then he's only a deep-league value.

  • Tony Snell - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Tony Snell is expected to start at shooting guard on Sunday against the Sixers.

    Snell was Milwaukee's starting shooting guard back before the team acquired Eric Bledsoe, so it looks like he'll get first crack at holding that spot down again. He's a 3-point specialist so there isn't much to get excited about. George Hill and Pat Connaughton should also see increased playing time with Brogdon expected to be out into the playoffs, though there's nobody here that's worth adding in 12-team leagues.

  • Malcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Malcolm Brogdon (right partial plantar fascia tear) is out for 6 to 8 weeks,

    Consider dropping Brogdon since he won't be able to help you out in the fantasy playoffs since every player counts at this point. Hopefully he'll be ready by the time the postseason comes along since Giannis Antetokounmpo would need every helping hand he could get.

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (bilateral heel bursitis) is questionable on Sunday against the Sixers.

    DiVincenzo is worth a hard look especially with Malcolm Brogdon (right plantar fascia tear) out. Deep-leaguers can snatch him if they have a streaming spot open.

  • Sterling Brown - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Sterling Brown (right wrist soreness) is out on Sunday against the Sixers.

    That's officially 10 games missed for Brown and he is not a fantasy option for this year.

  • Pat Connaughton - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton (sprained right ankle) is listed as probable on Sunday against the Sixers.

    Connaughton played well in their previous game covering for Malcolm Brogdon (right plastar fascia tear). He's worth a look if he's still on your wire since Brogdon's injury opens up minutes for the Bucks backcourt.

  • Malcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Malcolm Brogdon (right partial plantar fascia tear) is listed as out for the foreseeable future.

    Ouch. Any kind of tear to a player is not good news for fantasy owners. We would recommend a drop here since we're not sure how long this injury may cost him and the Bucks will surely take it easy on his recovery especially with the playoffs starting next month.

  • Brook Lopez - C - Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez was off his game in Friday's 113-98 win over the Heat, mustering just two points on 1-of-6 shooting with six rebounds, two dimes, one steal and three blocks.

    This is a view of Lopez's floor, so expect him to bounce back in his next game. Nikola Mirotic struggled as well with just eight points on 3-of-9 shooting, adding six rebounds, one assist, two 3s, one steal and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench.

  • Pat Connaughton - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton was productive off the Bucks' bench in Friday's win over the Heat with 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting, six rebounds, three 3s, one assist and one block.

    Connaughton got some extra run tonight with Malcolm Brogdon (heel) leaving the game after only seven minutes on the floor. Should Brogdon miss time, Connaughton is worth as a speculative add for his strength as a 3-point shooter with reliable efficiency.
