Thanasis Antokounmpo started on Monday and scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.
Antetokounmpo started in place of his MVP brother but can be ignored in all formats. The Bucks have the first seed locked up and there could be many more nights where they rest their starters. Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brook Lopez and Eric Bledsoe all didn't step on the floor tonight.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 (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.

Brook Lopez (sore back) is being listed as probable ahead of Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
Lopez missed Monday's overtime win against the Wizards on Monday but looks to be ready to go on the second night of a back-to-back against the number two seeded Raptors. Robin Lopez, who started in place of his brother, will return to a reserve role off the bench.

Robin Lopez started in place of his brother Brook and filled in admirably, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting, three 3-pointers, three blocks, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes on Monday vs. the Wizards.
Lopez had at least one big defensive play late in this close overtime match. The threes and blocks look just like what we hope to get from Brook Lopez (back soreness), who could miss additional time. Though, his absence isn't expected to be a long one.

Brook Lopez (back) has been listed as out for the Bucks' Monday night contest vs. the Wizards.
The Bucks are hoping this is a short-term thing. Coach Mike Budenholzer reiterated that he didn't think Lopez would miss much time but until there is another update, we can't say anything definitively.

Brook Lopez scored 18 points on Thursday night in 24 minutes of action as the Bucks routed the Pistons 126-106.
Lopez was very efficient while making 9-of-10 from the line. Unfortunately, this was a pretty empty line because he only pulled down two boards and didn't block any shots. He should still be a top-50 asset going forward and he should continue to block shots at high volume.

Brook Lopez was a force on defense on Wednesday, recording three steals and four blocks to go with 12 points (3-of-9 shooting), four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.
This was a tantalizing taste of the upside Lopez brings to the table. While he tends to be more passive and quiet when Giannis Antetokounmpo is around, he's able to explode with weekly-matchup-winning lines like this from time to time.

Brook Lopez had another strong night on Monday with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two triples.
Lopez did what Lopez has been doing all year. Block shots and hit triples. He's been destroying opponents at the rim this season and the stats show it.

Brook Lopez went on one of his patented offensive outbursts on Saturday as he shot a perfect 5-for-5 from deep en route to 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting.
Lopez does go on hot streaks, although they've come few and far between lately. He also added six rebounds and an assist to round out his line but failed to record a block. Despite his quiet runs and random spikes, on average, BroLo remains a solid top-60 play over the last month.

Brook Lopez had a quiet night on Thursday with just four points and three blocks in 25 minutes.
The offense wasn't there for Lopez in this game as he only scored two buckets. It's been a quieter offensive year for Lopez thus far but the shot blocking alone has maintained his top-50 status. Somehow, he is even more valuable than that as an elite rim protector for the best defensive team in the league. His brother, Robin Lopez, outproduced him in this game with nine points and two blocks in 20 minutes.
