    Shams Charania is reporting that Eric Bledsoe could become an offseason trade candidate.

    It's no surprise. Bledsoe has been absolutely horrid in two consecutive playoff runs and his offensive game has completely eroded. The Bucks erred in picking him over Malcolm Brogdon, and now the team is going to try and add a playmaker and secondary scorer who can break down defenses — something Bledsoe definitely is not. His defensive reputation earned him a spot on the NBA's All-Defense second team, so some teams figure to be interested. Also of note is that Charania reports that Mike Budenholzer's job is safe.

    C, Miami Heat

    The accolades continue to roll in for Bam Adebayo who was selected to his first NBA All-Defensive team, named alongside Brook Lopez, Kawhi Leonard, Eric Bledsoe and Patrick Beverley as a member of the Second-team.

    Adebayo was certainly a deserving selection to the Second-team after a breakout season with the Heat. He is joined by a fellow first-timer in Lopez who continues to thrive as a shot-blocking powerhouse for the Bucks. Leonard makes his third appearance on the Second-team to go with his three First-team selections. Bledsoe, who was named to the First-team last season, makes his first appearance on the Second-team, while Beverley was selected for the second time in his career.

    Eric Bledsoe checked in with 14 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and a block in Sunday's Game 4 win over the Heat.

    Bledsoe logged 40 minutes, with the Bucks finally giving their starters huge run as the season was on the line. It wasn't always pretty, as Bledsoe had a couple of horrific air-balls from deep (0-for-6 from 3-point range overall), but he got the job done. His lack of offense has been an issue for most of the season, but the Bucks will need him to step up as either a scorer or creator from here on out, especially if Giannis Antetokounmpo is unable to return for Game 5. George Hill was solid off the bench with 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a pair of triples in 37 minutes.

    Eric Bledsoe went just 2-for-9 from the floor for eight points on Friday night in Game 3 against the Heat, playing 30 minutes in the start.

    Bledsoe finished with just three assists, four boards and two steals to compliment his scoring. That isn't enough production, which is a recurring theme for the Bucks' playmakers in the playoffs, and Bledsoe took a step backward from his return from injury on Wednesday. The Bucks will fight for their playoff lives on Sunday in Game 4.

    Eric Bledsoe returned on Wednesday from his Game 1 absence and put up 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting alongside seven rebounds and two assists.

    Bledsoe had a decent night considering he was coming off a hamstring injury that sidelined him for Game 1. Tonight was the first time all playoffs that he has played over 30 minutes. However the Bucks will need more production from him if they want to save themselves from a second round upset. Bledsoe's scoring and efficiency has fallen way off since the NBA restarted, unfortunately.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) will play in Wednesday's Game 2 against the Heat.

    The Bucks will be back at full strength as they look to avoid a 0-2 series deficit. George Hill will move back to the bench, and Bledsoe's return will also affect the minutes available to Donte DiVincenzo. It should help Milwaukee, who got badly outplayed with bench-heavy lineups on the floor in Game 1. In a bit of a surprise, Robin Lopez has been made inactive.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) is once again a game-time decision for Wednesday's Game 2.

    Bledsoe was ruled out about 15 minutes before tip ahead of Game 1, so the Bucks will probably wait until the very last moment again unless Bledsoe's condition has worsened over the last couple days. He was able to do a little bit of work in practice yesterday but George Hill is likely to start again if Bledsoe can't go.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) has been ruled questionable for Game 2 against the Heat on Wednesday.

    Bledsoe was able to get through portions of Tuesday's practice and the hope is that he will be ready to go after missing the opening game of the series. He will likely be given up until tipoff to prove his fitness making him a risky target in DFS. If he is unable to get out there, George Hill would be the obvious beneficiary and should be able to better his performance from Game 1.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) was able to do "some work" in Tuesday's practice session.

    Mike Budenholzer stopped short of guaranteeing that Bledsoe would be back in the lineup tomorrow, but it's an encouraging sign nonetheless. Bledsoe was a game-time call for Game 1 and was ruled out about 15 minutes before tip, so hopefully his injury isn't serious. The Bucks could certainly use another defensive presence as they face a 1-0 series deficit. If Bledsoe can't go in Game 2, expect George Hill to start in his place again.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) has been ruled out of Game 1 against the Heat on Monday.

    Bledsoe popped up on the injury report prior to Monday and the injury will keep him sidelined for Game 1. In his absence, George Hill will shift across to the starting lineup and both he and Donte DiVincenzo should pick up the bulk of the minutes at point guard.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) has been listed as questionable for Monday's Game 1 against the Heat.

    Bledsoe was a new addition to the injury report on Sunday and his status remains in question prior to Milwaukee's second-round series opener. George Hill will slide into the starting lineup in the event that Bledsoe can't play. Check back closer to tip-off for an official ruling on his status.

    Eric Bledsoe (right hamstring strain) is questionable ahead of Monday's Game 1 against the Heat.

    It's a new injury for Bledsoe, who was able to play in each of Milwaukee's five first-round games. He logged between 24 and 28 minutes in each, and an absence would likely result in George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo splitting that work.

    Eric Bledsoe looked much better during Saturday's comprehensive victory over the Magic, ending with a well-rounded line including 14 points, eight assists, five rebounds, three steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    The Bucks took control early and never really looked in any danger, soaring to a 2-1 series lead. Bledsoe looked the best he has since arriving in Orlando, which is certainly a good sign for the Bucks. After a bump in the road to begin the series, the Bucks appear to be in the driver's seat now and will look to end things with another two victories over the coming days.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, and Donte DiVincenzo all saw fewer than 10 minutes in the second half as the team prepares for the postseason.

    DiVincenzo could have had the best line of the bunch if it wasn't for five turnovers. BroLo and Middleton had solid lines in limited minutes while Bledsoe struggled from the field by going 1-of-8 overall. They were rested early in the second half but we should see them all return to their regular workload come next week. The Bucks will face off against the Magic in the first round.

  • 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.
