Brook Lopez and Wesley Matthews will sit out Friday's preseason game.
No injuries are reported, so it's just a day of rest for the pair of vets. Expect Brook to be replaced by brother Robin while guys like Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown and Kyle Korver will likely take on extra work with Matthews out.

Brook Lopez did his thing in Wednesday's preseason tilt vs. the Jazz, posting 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting, which included two treys.
Lopez dropped a prototypical line in just 20 minutes on the floor, adding three boards and one blocked shot to the box scores. Twin brother Robin Lopez logged 13 minutes off the bench and was good for 11 points, one block and one trey.

The Bucks will start Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez on Wednesday.
Giannis, Bledsoe and Middleton all sat out of Monday's preseason opener but that was just a case of rest. If you're looking to see how the Bucks' rotation could shake out, tonight could be the game to watch.

Brook Lopez scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting while adding three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block.
Lopez had a solid line alongside his brother, Robin Lopez (18 minutes, 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with a 3-pointer, five rebounds and three blocks). There's potential for both Lopez brothers to be productive in fantasy with Brook having the higher upside of course.

The Bucks announced their re-signing of Brook Lopez on Saturday.
Lopez was a wonderful fit in Milwaukee last season and should continue to provide strong fantasy output for the rest of his tenure with the Bucks. Odds are he won't be coming as cheaply in drafts this season, but Lopez should easily be a middle-round player with comfortable top-40 upside.

Brook Lopez will reportedly agree to a four-year, $52 million deal to stay with the Bucks when free agency opens.
Lopez was a steal last summer and fit perfectly into Milwaukee's system as an elite floor-spacer and rim-protector. He won't be coming at a discount this time around, but he is certainly one of the more unique players in the game and vital to the Bucks' scheme.

In addition to the Bucks, the Clippers, Lakers and Pelicans are the main outside teams looking to acquire Brook Lopez according to Gery Woelfel.
It's been widely assumed that Lopez's services would be in high demand as he fits into a lot of teams plans like a glove. Any one of those teams could push to get Lopez at a contract the Bucks wouldn't be able to match, putting a huge dent in their core. Stay tuned on this front, as these are likely not the only teams looking to make a play for him.

Per Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Bucks and Brook Lopez are motivated to get a deal done, as evidenced by the Bucks clearing up cap space after trading Tony Snell away.
Lopez has become an elite three-point shooting big man the past few seasons and showed he was an ideal frontcourt mate next to MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks can offer Lopez a starting salary of roughly $14 million as of now and can get it even higher if they can unload Jon Leuer and/or George Hill.

Sam Amick of The Athletic is reporting that the Rockets are considering Danny Green, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jeremy Lamb, Brook Lopez, DeAndre Jordan and Kevon Looney as possible targets in free agency.
Houston is focused on completing a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler but those players, either as cheap depth around the new Big Three or as fallback options, are all good fits. There's a ton of balls in the air at this point but it's clear that the Rockets are prepared to shake things up and are planning to cover their bases at every position.

The Bucks have multiple decisions to make when free agency starts but re-signing Brook Lopez is a priority, according to Malika Andrews.
The Bucks will likely lock up Khris Middleton first and then will have to decide on Malcolm Brogdon. He is a restricted free agent, but keeping him may vault Milwaukee into the luxury tax. After those two, Lopez is a priority over the other pending free agents such as Nikola Mirotic and George Hill. The Bucks won't have Bird Rights on Brook Lopez meaning they'd only have the mid-level exception to offer him, and if they go into the luxury tax, the mid-level exception drops from about $9 million to about $5 million. He'd almost certainly be taking a discount to stay in Milwaukee, but it's still possible he remains a Buck.

Brook Lopez scored 18 points on Saturday's Game 6 loss, adding nine rebounds, one assist, four blocks and zero 3-pointers.
Lopez had a productive 4th quarter for the Bucks scoring six points in the paint against the Raptors frontcourt. Unfortunately, he could not get it going throughout the rest of the game and caused most of his damage at the freethrow line, going 8-for-9. Lopez provided a great boost for the Bucks this season and will be a free agent this offseason.

Brook Lopez scored 16 points and pulled down eight boards on Thursday night in a Game 6 loss.
Lopez was fine in general and wasn't really a liability, but he also didn't provide as much as needed on the defensive side or from long range. For what it's worth, he has generally outplayed his counterpart Marc Gasol in this series and tonight was no different.

Brook Lopez had a solid performance in Game 3 on Sunday as he put up 16 points and six rebounds on 5-of-10 shooting in a loss to the Raptors in double overtime.
Lopez has shown up for the Bucks in this series, but he was not able to lead them to a win like he did in Game 1. He added one assist, two steals and three triples to the box score. Lopez has played Marc Gasol very tough in this series, which has forced the Raptors to consider lineup changes. The play of Lopez should not go unnoticed in the overall spectrum of why the Bucks are as good as they are.
The Bucks turned in a great season but have tons of questions moving forward
