Donte DiVincenzo was able to produce 11 points, five rebounds, four steals and a 3-pointer in 22 minutes on Friday.
DiVincenzo remains a late-round value on the year but figures to fade back to deep-league territory with Khris Middleton back. DiVincenzo took advantage of ample garbage time tonight so despite the solid line, his arrow is pointing down. Middleton had 17-6-5 on 7-of-9 shooting.

Khris Middleton will start Monday's game in place of Donte DiVincenzo.
DiVincenzo has played quite well, but Middleton has been excellent in limited minutes. He's averaging 17.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.1 assists this season.

Khris Middleton scored 15 points in 16 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Hornets, adding four rebounds, three assists and a steal.
Teammate Donte DiVincenzo is doing everything he can to retain the starting spot but it is only a matter of time before Middleton reclaims it, as the Bucks have invested heavily in him. The team is being cautious in bringing back Middleton from an extended absence and tonight's blowout allowed them to continue to bring him back slowly.

Donte Divincenzo continued to be useful with a line of 11 points (3-for-8 FGs, 2-for-4 FTs), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes vs. the Cavs on Friday.
Divincenzo has started the last nine games for the Bucks, but that could be coming to an end as Khris Middleton continues to carve out time on the floor. Over the past eight games, Divincenzo has been the 100th/80th ranked player (8-cat/9-cat), so keep him in mind if he finds himself in this 27-minute role once again. Middleton had 12 points, four rebounds and five assists in 23 minutes tonight.

Donte DiVincenzo scored 12 points and grabbed six boards in 28 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
DiVincenzo has filled in admirably for Khris Middleton over the last couple weeks. We'll see whether he maintains his starting spot at the expense of Wesley Matthews or is relegated to a bench role once again once Middleton is back in the starting lineup. Dropping out of the starting lineup would make DiVincenzo a streaming option at best.

Khris Middleton scored 16 points and two steals off the bench in 20 minutes on Wednesday as he returned from a leg contusion suffered earlier in the month.
Middleton came back a little bit before schedule after suffering the injury on November 10th and produced nicely in his first game. It wasn't an exciting final line but being able to have that output in such a short night is encouraging. Given how well Donte DiVincenzo has played in Middleton's absence, we may see some lost playing time for Wesley Matthews (10 points and two 3-pointers in this game).

Khris Middleton (leg) will come off the bench in his first game back on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.
Middleton is returning to game-action only 17 days after suffering a leg injury where the original timetable was 3-4 weeks. Expect some rust for Middleton who has missed the last seven games. As Middleton gets back to form, Donte DiVincenzo and Wesley Matthews could see their fantasy values dip.

According to Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinal, Khris Middleton (leg) said that he will play in Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
Middleton's return would be a huge boost to the current Eastern Conference leaders. If Middleton can go, one of Donte DiVincenzo or Wesley Matthews will get bumped from the starting lineup. DiVincenzo has put up top 89/96 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past two weeks and has proven to be the better of the two players in the absence of Middleton.

Khris Middleton suffered a leg injury on November 10th but is on schedule to return in the 3-4 week timeline and participated in contact practice on Monday.
This is good news for those fantasy owners who are awaiting the return of the one-time All-Star. Continue to monitor his rehab but expect Middleton to return in a few weeks barring any major setback. Donte DiVincenzo will continue to see additional minutes for as long as Middleton is out.

George Hill won't face the Jazz on Monday due to back soreness.
This was an unexpected development. Donte DiVincenzo has been impressive recently and should receive more opportunities with Hill out.

Donte DiVincenzo scored six points on Saturday (3-of-9 from the floor) with seven boards, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes.
DiVincenzo has been a late-round player since Khris Middleton (left thigh contusion) went down and is worth rostering in the short-term for his production in steals and threes.

Donte DiVincenzo performed well once again on Thursday with 16 points and two triples in 27 minutes.
DiVincenzo has put up similar lines over the last four games, mainly providing double-digit scoring and a few long range bombs. He has some streaming potential as a low-end player because it's clear the minutes are going to be there.

Donte DiVencenzo put together a respectable line on Wednesday, ending with 11 points, five boards, three assists, two steals and a couple of 3-pointers.
DiVencenzo has strung together a few serviceable games in a row now. He is worth a look for steals and threes in deep leagues or to stream while Khris Middleton (left thigh contusion) is sidelined.

Donte Divincenzo started and put up a nice line with 15 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four boards, four dimes, three swipes and three treys in 29 minutes in a victory over the Bulls on Monday.
Divincenzo has started three straight games while Khris Middleton (left thigh contusion) has been out, and while he hasn't blown the fantasy community's socks off, Divincenzo is showing that he's worth a look for streaming and deep leagues. He can rack up steals and threes quickly.

Donte DiVincenzo started on Saturday and scored 14 points (6-of-9 from the field) with four rebounds, two threes and two steals in 24 minutes.
DiVincenzo got the start again with Khris Middleton (left thigh contusion) sidelined. DiVincenzo is worth monitoring but is currently battling Sterling Brown (10 points in 26 minutes on Saturday) for playing time.
