    According to head coach Mike Budenholzer, Eric Bledsoe (right knee effusion) and George Hill (right adductor contusion) were both able to practice on Wednesday and are expected to play in Thursday's showdown vs. the Celtics.

    The Bucks were shorthanded on Monday as they played without four of their regular starters and several key bench players. They appear to be nearing full strength ahead of Thursday so expect all of the regular guys to get back in the mix.

  • Sterling Brown
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Sterling Brown started on Monday and scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists, a block and three 3-pointers.

    Brown put up numbers tonight in a start and could be a triples specialist if Eric Bledsoe (knee) continues to miss time.

  • Thanasis Antetokounmpo
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Eric Bledsoe had a bounce-back outing vs. the Suns on Sunday, putting up 28 points (12-of-19 FG, 2-of-5 FT), two 3-pointers, seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers.

    Bledsoe was in need of a strong offensive outing after topping a dozen points just once in the prior five games. The Suns will lean on him more as a creator while Giannis Antetokoumpo out for at least one more game. Until Bledsoe starts wracking up some steals he is going to be a disappointment in comparison to where you drafted him to start the season.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    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.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill is questionable for Friday's game with a groin contusion.

    Hill missed Wednesday's win over the Pacers but could return for this game. He has outperformed Eric Bledsoe a number of times in the last few games. If he returns, it may knock down Eric Bledsoe a couple pegs.

    Eric Bledsoe scored 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3PT) on Wednesday night, while picking up five rebounds and seven assists.

    Hopefully this is the start of Bledsoe breaking out of his slump. He has be bad recently, falling outside of the top-100 over the last two months. Bledsoe is a veteran player who has broken out of slumps before, so owners can remain optimistic the end is in sight.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (groin contusion) will not play during Wednesday's game.

    He had been listed as probable but is unable to suit up. Donte DiVincenzo will have a larger role behind Eric Bledsoe until Hill returns.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (groin contusion) is being listed as probable for the Bucks' game on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    He has played quite well over his past five contests, after a long dry spell, and has logged at least 24 minutes in four of the last five games. Eric Bledsoe has been struggling mightily lately, so as long as Hill stays on the court, Hill is worth a look in 12-team leagues and beyond.

    Eric Bledsoe scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting to go with four assists and two steals on Monday.

    Bledsoe is in a major slump and tonight's game could be a preview of what things will look like in the playoffs. The Heat played way off of Bledsoe in the pick-and-roll and he wasn't able to take advantage at all. He became unplayable as George Hill (24 minutes, 12 points with three boards and three dimes) stepped in and logged more minutes tonight. Either way, the Bucks had no answer at point guard tonight and Bledsoe should turn things around soon.

    Eric Bledsoe had a rough game on Sunday, going 2-of-8 from the field and posting four points, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Bledsoe just didn't have it today and he's just a middle-round option these days, thanks largely to a huge dip in his steals. If his current 0.9 steals per game holds up all year, it'll be just the second time he's averaged under 1.0 steals per game over a full season since his sophomore year, when he averaged 11.6 minutes across just 40 games. This was a disappointment because Khris Middleton was out, but Bledsoe couldn't step up to fill that void. He'll be better in the next one.

    Eric Bledsoe had a strong performance in a 137-134 overtime win over the Wizards on the road on Monday with 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting, seven rebounds, 10 assists and four triples in 33 minutes.

    Over the last month or so, Bledsoe has been the early-mid-round player that those that drafted him have been waiting for. His numbers aren't always flashy, but he's a solid point guard who is mainly down this season due to a dip in steals. Donte DiVincenzo had a standout game off the bench with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

    Eric Bledsoe had a productive outing in Saturday’s win over the Sixers with 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting, adding eight assists, two treys and four rebounds.

    Bledsoe has been looking good as of late, having stabilized with reliable value. The Bucks are in cruise control right now and Bledsoe owners can confidently keep him slotted into their active lineups in all formats.
