    Eric Bledsoe (right knee effusion) is listed as doubtful for Monday's matchup vs. the Nuggets.

    Bledsoe popped up on the injury report late on Monday so fantasy GMs should make sure to make alternative plans if the Bucks' point guard is unable to suit up. Donte DiVincenzo is a must-add player with this news while Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown and Frank Mason are also likely to see increased opportunity.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton stepped up on Sunday with 39 points (13-of-26 FG, 10-of-11 FT), three 3-pointers, four assists, two rebounds and four turnovers, in a loss to the Suns.

    Middleton certainly brought the scoring in this game as the Suns had nobody who could slow him down, but the team was unable to get stops on the other end without the Giannis Antetokounmpo's presence. Middleton will have every opportunity to carry the load while the Greek Freak is out for at least one more game.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe had a bounce-back outing vs. the Suns on Sunday, putting up 28 points (12-of-19 FG, 2-of-5 FT), two 3-pointers, seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers.

    Bledsoe was in need of a strong offensive outing after topping a dozen points just once in the prior five games. The Suns will lean on him more as a creator while Giannis Antetokoumpo out for at least one more game. Until Bledsoe starts wracking up some steals he is going to be a disappointment in comparison to where you drafted him to start the season.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez was productive against the Suns on Sunday, putting together 18 points (8-of-14 FG), one 3-pointer, two blocks and one steal.

    In typical Lopez fashion, he only grabbed two rebounds, but you are just carrying Lopez for the blocks and 3-pointers anyway. He remains a reliable mid-round player with early-round upside when his shot is falling. Unfortunately, that has not been a regularity this season, but he could get hot anytime from deep.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo had his fourth straight outing in double-digits on Sunday vs. the Suns, going for 18 points (8-of-11 FG), seven rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and two steals.

    DiVincenzo should see an increase in value while Giannis Antetokounmpo is out for another game at least. Everyone will step up in the Greek Freak's absence, but DiVincenzo is increasingly proving himself to be a key piece in the Bucks' best units. He is worth a pickup in 12-team leagues while he has this large of a role in the offense.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (groin contusion) will return from a two-game absence on Sunday.

    Hill could be looking at additional minutes as the Bucks shuffle things around while Giannis Antetokounmpo is out, so he could be a consideration if you need threes, steals and a few assists without sacrificing your FG%. DJ Wilson, nursing a left ankle sprain but not in the rotation, is also good to go.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo has been diagnosed with a mild joint capsule sprain in his left knee and will be held out of the final two games of the Bucks' current road trip.

    Antetokounmpo's next chance to play will come on Thursday against the Celtics, though that will likely be dependent on his next re-evaluation. Ersan Ilyasova figures to move into the starting five and we should see more work for wing types like Donte DiVincenzo and Sterling Brown as the rotation shuffles around to compensate for this massive loss.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game due to the lingering groin contusion he's been dealing with.

    Hill has been a low-end option at guard in very deep leagues, but his recent absences have warranted a drop in favor of healthier bodies.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (left knee) is listed as doubtful to play on Sunday.

    Ouch. This is definitely horrible timing for Giannis owners. With him potentially sidelined, guys like Donte DiVincenzo will make good spot-adds for a short-term boost in value.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (left knee) is expected to get a precautionary MRI after a hard fall against the Lakers on Friday.

    Antetokounmpo remained in the game after the fall but the Bucks will not take any chances with their franchise player. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Suns with his minutes likely being split among several players if he does need to miss any time.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 32 points (10-for-21 FG, 1-for-6 3PT), 11 rebounds, six assists, one three and one steal across 36 minutes as the Bucks fell to the Lakers 103-113.

    It was another clunker from deep for the Greek Freak, who didn't have much help from his teammates tonight. Most importantly, he survived a scary moment in the fourth quarter where it looked like he tweaked his knee. Though he did miss all three free throws he took after that, he should be fine moving forward.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez scored 13 points (4-for-5 FG, 3-for-4 3PT) with five rebounds in 29 minutes in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

    Lopez was more effective in fewer minutes than Eric Bledsoe, who had 11 points (5-for-13 FG, 0-for-3 3PT), four rebounds, three assists and three steals. Ultimately the Bucks didn't get enough from their supporting cast to get the win.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte Divincenzo put up 17 points (7-for-13 FG, 3-for-7 3PT), four assists, three rebounds, three triples and one block across 24 minutes on Friday.

    Divincenzo was much more efficient than Khris Middleton tonight, who finished with 12 points (5-for-19 FG, 2-for-10 3PT), frive rebounds, four assists and a steal. With George Hill out, Divincenzo is definitely worth a look as he is stringing productive showings together now.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill is questionable for Friday's game with a groin contusion.

    Hill missed Wednesday's win over the Pacers but could return for this game. He has outperformed Eric Bledsoe a number of times in the last few games. If he returns, it may knock down Eric Bledsoe a couple pegs.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo carried the Bucks to a 100-119 victory over the Pacers on Wednesday, putting up 29 points (10-23 FG, 2-8 3PT, 7-7 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and one steal.

    Antetokounmpo struggled a bit from deep tonight, but other than that shot the ball well, and was perfect from the charity stripe. He is a threat to put up monster lines at any point, and if he isn't being rested, should be a top-15 player.
