    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Kyle Korver (back) did not make the two-game road trip the Bucks are embarking on, essentially ruling him out for two more games.

    Korver hasn't played since February 10th, and figures to not be rushed back with the Bucks easily coasting through the rest of the regular season. He is not on the fantasy radar

    Khris Middleton (neck soreness) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    It will be Middleton's second straight game on the sidelines, and it's possible Milwaukee is just giving him additional rest time considering the quality of the opponent. Donte DiVencenzo will likely draw another start in his absence.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill shot a perfect 4-for-4 from the field (two treys) and 4-for-4 from the line for 14 points, five rebounds, six assists and one steal in 19 minutes in Friday's blowout win over the Thunder.

    Hill has been too inconsistent to trust in standard leagues this season and only got some extra run with the garbage-time factor. He's best used in 16-team leagues or deeper right now as a source of threes.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo started for Khris Middleton (neck) on Friday and was quiet with just seven points (3-of-7 shooting), six rebounds, one triple and three assists in 19 minutes.

    DDV's subdued performance was due to the blowout nature of the game. There was no need for him to log heavy minutes. Still, he's been able to hover around the top-100 value. Things should stabilize and normalize once the Bucks play against a more competitive opponent.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo led his herd to an easy 133-86 win over the Thunder on Friday with 31 points (13-of-20 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 13 rebounds, two 3s and six assists in only 27 minutes.

    Giannis was unstoppable, plain and simple. The Bucks took an early lead and never really looked back. This was still a good line, lack of defensive stats notwithstanding, considering it was recorded in just 27 minutes. At this point, the only thing that can possibly hold Giannis back from a strong finish to the season is the back soreness that's been bothering him as of late.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo will pick up the start for the Bucks on Friday against the Thunder with Khris Middleton (neck) out.

    DiVincenzo has been around a top-100 guy coming off the bench anyway this year, so if you have him make sure he's locked into your lineup. He should get a bump in production on offense on Friday with Middleton on the bench.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is available and in coach Mike Budenholzer's starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    If he had sat this one out, it likely would have been more due to rest than anything else. He may sit some games the rest of the way because the Bucks are so far ahead in the standings and have locked up a playoff spot. Fantasy owners should be wary and alert prior to his games, especially in games against subpar opponents.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton will miss Friday's game against the Thunder with neck soreness.

    Middleton had been a beast for the Bucks, and maybe they just want to give him a rest. It's not clear how severe the situation is, but it'll be a replacement by committee while Middleton is out. Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez should benefit nicely.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton is questionable to face the Thunder on Friday due to neck soreness.

    This is a new injury on the fantasy radar for Middleton, and he has been playing the best basketball of his career in 2020. If this does keep him out, let's hope it's nothing serious as Middleton has been carrying many teams these past couple of months. His role in the lineup would get distributed across the roster if he did sit out. The Bucks have plenty of depth to fill the void.

    Kyle Korver will miss Friday's game against the Thunder with a sore back.

    The veteran hasn't played since February 10th and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is probable for Friday's game against the Thunder.

    Is GA's back sore from leading the Bucks in another Herculean MVP effort this season? Probably. It wouldn't be surprising to see Antetokounmpo on the injury report and sitting out some games down the stretch as the Bucks have already locked up a spot in the postseason.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton paced the Bucks with a team-high 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes in a 108-97 road win over the Raptors on Tuesday.

    While not a spectacular game, Middleton's floor has been raised. He's been a top-10 player for the month, and games like this won't knock him out. The percentages are spectacular for a player that attempts so many triples.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo's shot attempt total was on the lower side for the second straight night, but he still managed to impress with 19 points (5-of-14 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 19 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes as the Bucks beat the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Giannis deferred to his teammates for much of the game before taking a handful of shots in the fourth quarter. No matter, as he did just about everything a fantasy team could need anyway, including a nice performance from the free throw line. Aside from his usual struggles there, the only thing that might derail him down the stretch is the Bucks resting him here and there during the fantasy playoffs.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez (sore back) had five rejections in his return to the Bucks' lineup on Tuesday, adding 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting, three boards, two swipes and two triples in 27 minutes in a win over the Raptors.

    Lopez missed Monday's game due to a sore back, but he looked like his normal self in this game. His threes dropped this season, but Lopez is averaging a career-best 2.5 blocks per game. That's enough for him to keep up his middle-round value that he was drafted for.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez (sore back) will play in Tuesday's must-see matchup against the Raptors.

    Lopez missed the front end of the back-to-back set, but is good to go for this highly anticipated matchup pitting the top two teams in the Eastern Conference up against one another. Play Lopez as you usually would. Robin Lopez will return to a reserve role.
