Donte DiVincenzo

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton (rest), Donte DiVincenzo (right elbow contusion), Wesley Matthews (right adductor soreness) and Eric Bledsoe (sore right knee) are all ruled out of Tuesday's contest vs. the Wizards.

    The Bucks already have the No. 1 seed wrapped up and are looking towards winning their first NBA Championship since 1971. There will be plenty of opportunity for some role players on Tuesday and may be even more if Giannis Antetokounmpo (tooth), who is currently questionable, sits out. Ersan Ilyasova, Marvin Williams, Robin Lopez, Pat Connaughton, and Sterling Brown are some players to look at. Brook Lopez and George Hill are solid fantasy contributors but may see limited minutes against a disappointing Wizards squad.

    Donte DiVincenzo ceded his spot in the starting lineup with the return of Eric Bledsoe, totaling 11 points in 24 minutes to go with six assists, four rebounds and one steal in Tuesday's loss to the Nets.

    DiVincenzo assumed what is likely to be his typical role now that the Bucks are primarily healthy. Despite calls for him to replace Wes Matthews (calf) in the starting lineup, the Bucks appear set on their opening five. With that being said, DiVincenzo still has a chance to play meaningful minutes on a nightly basis and is worth a look in most resumption formats.

  • Eric Bledsoe

    Eric Bledsoe is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday, pushing Donte DiVincenzo to the bench.

    Bledsoe will be making his first appearance in bubble action today after missing the first two contests to get his conditioning up. He's not a recommended fantasy play today given the matchup and the likelihood that the game is filled with garbage time, but Bledsoe should be safe to deploy in fantasy lineups in Milwaukee's next game.

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Matthews (calf) is listed as out on the injury report and will not play against the Nets on Tuesday.

    Matthews' absence is likely just a precaution given they are playing a vastly understrength Nets team. Despite the fact he remains a starter for the Bucks, Matthews' contributions are mediocre at best and his absence shouldn't move the fantasy needle all too much. However, there should be additional playing time for players such as Donte DiVincenzo, Sterling Brown and George Hill.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe (conditioning) will continue to work on his conditioning before hitting the floor after being ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    Bledsoe will not suit up on Sunday meaning Donte DiVincenzo will likely remain the starter. The Bucks are basically assured the league's best record and so there is no real incentive to rush Bledsoe back into the lineup. DiVincenzo presents as a nice target across all fantasy formats despite a disappointing outing in the Bucks' first game.

    Donte DiVincenzo will start for the Bucks against the Celtics on Friday.

    Eric Bledsoe is still out of the lineup as he arrived in the bubble late due to COVID-19. DiVincenzo can offer some fringe value in standard leagues when the Bucks are healthy, and with Bledsoe out he figures to see an uptick in production. George Hill will also benefit with added point guard responsibilities.

    Pat Connaughton will miss Friday's opener as he entered the bubble late due to COVID-19.

    Connaughton isn't one of the bigger names, but he was a key reserve for the Bucks, who are also without Eric Bledsoe due to late entry because of COVID-19. Both players are expected to get up to full speed eventually, but for now the Bucks will lean on George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo at the guard spots.

  • Wesley Matthews

    Wesley Matthews scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting with five boards, an assist and a steal in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Pelicans.

    Matthews took all of his field goal attempts from beyond the arc which is what he's there for. Donte DiVincenzo started at point and scored five points on 2-of-4 shooting with four boards and an assist as well. Both players are there to space the floor for their superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo put up 13 points, two triples and three steals in Saturday's scrimmage against the Kings.

    DiVincenzo started with Eric Bledsoe out and did a nice job in his 22 minutes. He was a solid top-120 option this season, and while his numbers tend to underwhelm on a night-to-night basis, it was hard to argue with the overall package. That makes him a tough player to peg for resumption leagues, but you could certainly do worse than DiVincenzo with your final few selections. The Bucks rolled right over the Kings' defense today so plenty of players feasted — George Hill pitched in 10 assists while Kyle Korver netted 22 points and five threes.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo authored a low-key breakout season with averages of 9.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers in 23.1 mpg.

    DiVincenzo did that while hitting at a .462 clip from the floor, which was good for top-115/100 (8/9-cat) value. He never really got the props that he deserved from the fantasy community, but DiVincenzo became a valued member of the Milwaukee rotation and was able to provide some excellent ROI for any GMs that hopped on board the train early. This was a big step forward after injuries limited him to 27 games as a rookie, and it's entirely possible that DiVincenzo keeps a similar role going forward. Fantasy players just have to hope that the efficiency and steals stick, as those numbers weren't exactly expected given his track record.

    Eric Bledsoe (right knee effusion) will not play Monday vs. the Nuggets.

    Bledsoe's absence will provide increased value for Donte DiVincenzo, who was already on the rise with Giannis Antetokounmpo out of the lineup. DiVincenzo is a must-own player for this week with Pat Connaughton and Sterling Brown seeing some extra minutes. Connaughton and Brown are only low-end streaming options.

  • George Hill

    George Hill will sit out of Monday's game vs. the Nuggets with a bruised right adductor.

    The Bucks will be shorthanded on Monday as they will be without Hill and Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) while Eric Bledsoe (knee) is unlikely to play. Donte DiVincenzo is a must-stream player with this news while the other starters will see more usage on Monday.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe (right knee effusion) is listed as doubtful for Monday's matchup vs. the Nuggets.

    Bledsoe popped up on the injury report late on Monday so fantasy GMs should make sure to make alternative plans if the Bucks' point guard is unable to suit up. Donte DiVincenzo is a must-add player with this news while Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown and Frank Mason are also likely to see increased opportunity.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo had his fourth straight outing in double-digits on Sunday vs. the Suns, going for 18 points (8-of-11 FG), seven rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and two steals.

    DiVincenzo should see an increase in value while Giannis Antetokounmpo is out for another game at least. Everyone will step up in the Greek Freak's absence, but DiVincenzo is increasingly proving himself to be a key piece in the Bucks' best units. He is worth a pickup in 12-team leagues while he has this large of a role in the offense.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte Divincenzo put up 17 points (7-for-13 FG, 3-for-7 3PT), four assists, three rebounds, three triples and one block across 24 minutes on Friday.

    Divincenzo was much more efficient than Khris Middleton tonight, who finished with 12 points (5-for-19 FG, 2-for-10 3PT), frive rebounds, four assists and a steal. With George Hill out, Divincenzo is definitely worth a look as he is stringing productive showings together now.
