Khris Middleton put together a respectable effort on Wednesday, finishing with 20 points (9-16 FG), eight rebounds and two assists.
Middleton has been on fire, and is currently a top-20 player on the year. Even with Middleton back in the lineup, Donte DiVincenzo had an arguably better game, ending up with 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and block. However, this shouldn't be expected nightly for him.

Eric Bledsoe scored 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3PT) on Wednesday night, while picking up five rebounds and seven assists.
Hopefully this is the start of Bledsoe breaking out of his slump. He has be bad recently, falling outside of the top-100 over the last two months. Bledsoe is a veteran player who has broken out of slumps before, so owners can remain optimistic the end is in sight.

George Hill (groin contusion) will not play during Wednesday's game.
He had been listed as probable but is unable to suit up. Donte DiVincenzo will have a larger role behind Eric Bledsoe until Hill returns.

George Hill (groin contusion) is being listed as probable for the Bucks' game on Wednesday against the Pacers.
He has played quite well over his past five contests, after a long dry spell, and has logged at least 24 minutes in four of the last five games. Eric Bledsoe has been struggling mightily lately, so as long as Hill stays on the court, Hill is worth a look in 12-team leagues and beyond.

Giannis Antetokounmpo struggled in Monday's 89-105 loss, scoring 13 points on 6-of-18 shooting to go with 15 rebounds, one steal and one block.
Antetokounmpo couldn't get things going against the Heat tonight, missing all four of his 3-point attempts and splitting his only two free throw attempts. The Heat came in with a solid game plan and the personnel to deliver it, but Giannis should be able to get back to his insane production at home against the Pacers on Wednesday.
March 2, 2020, 9:52 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez led the Bucks in scoring on Monday with 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting to go with six rebounds, two blocks and two triples.
Lopez was the only Bucks player to score efficiently against the Heat tonight as the Bucks didn't get much from anyone else. He was able to lock down the paint as best as he could on the defensive end as well, but when your leading scorer is Lopez, it's not a recipe for success.
March 2, 2020, 9:51 pmKhris MiddletonSF, Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton cooled off on Monday with 12 points on 4-of-16 shooting while adding seven rebounds, one steal and two triples.
Middleton was a flamethrower before this game so we're going to just chalk it up as a bad night overall as the Heat played great defense against them.
March 2, 2020, 9:51 pmEric BledsoePG, Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting to go with four assists and two steals on Monday.
Bledsoe is in a major slump and tonight's game could be a preview of what things will look like in the playoffs. The Heat played way off of Bledsoe in the pick-and-roll and he wasn't able to take advantage at all. He became unplayable as George Hill (24 minutes, 12 points with three boards and three dimes) stepped in and logged more minutes tonight. Either way, the Bucks had no answer at point guard tonight and Bledsoe should turn things around soon.

Khris Middleton (neck soreness) is probable for Monday's tilt with the Heat.
Middleton sat out on Sunday against the lowly Hornets, and that's looking like a glorified maintenance day. Get him in your lineups for this big Eastern Conference showdown.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was dominant on Sunday afternoon, posting 41 points, 20 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a 3-pointer against the Hornets.
It's the first 40 & 20 game of Antetokounmpo's career, and we're betting it won't be the last. He also shot an incredible 17-for-28 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line to cap off yet another huge performance. The Bucks are going to cruise to the first seed which might put Giannis in danger for some rest days down the stretch, but obviously he's going to be truly elite when he's on the floor.
March 1, 2020, 3:50 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez was able to deliver 16 points, seven rebounds, three blocks and a 3-pointer in Sunday's victory.
Lopez made quick work of the Hornets in his 26 minutes and is continuing to return middle-round value on the back of elite blocks output. Though his other numbers are all trending down, a big spike in swats has kept BroLo's fantasy value afloat.
March 1, 2020, 3:43 pmWesley MatthewsSG, Milwaukee Bucks
Wesley Matthews finished Sunday's road win with eight points, eight rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers.
Matthews' 3-of-11 mark from the field stings but that's just part of the deal at this point. His threes and steals are down this year as Matthews is averaging just 24.5 mpg on the season, so he's best left for streaming scenarios and deep-league use even if he can post some 3-and-D lines like this from time to time.
March 1, 2020, 3:40 pmDonte DiVincenzoSG, Milwaukee Bucks
Donte DiVincenzo started for Khris Middleton (neck) on Sunday and managed two points, seven rebounds, five assists and a block on 1-for-5 from the field in 28 minutes.
It's a disappointing line but there's just enough volume here to get the job done. He's been a steady late-round option pretty much all year and this one game shouldn't force you off that valuation. DiVincenzo will return to the bench next game but it's been a quiet but successful breakout season for him overall.
March 1, 2020, 3:35 pmEric BledsoePG, Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe had a rough game on Sunday, going 2-of-8 from the field and posting four points, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes.
Bledsoe just didn't have it today and he's just a middle-round option these days, thanks largely to a huge dip in his steals. If his current 0.9 steals per game holds up all year, it'll be just the second time he's averaged under 1.0 steals per game over a full season since his sophomore year, when he averaged 11.6 minutes across just 40 games. This was a disappointment because Khris Middleton was out, but Bledsoe couldn't step up to fill that void. He'll be better in the next one.
