Eric Bledsoe struggled on Thursday night in 20 minutes of action, scoring nine points on nine shots to go with four assists, but the Bucks held on to beat the Celtics 128-123.
Bledsoe had a forgettable outing in this game and he hasn't quite returned to his top-50 form that we've seen over the last few seasons. This is probably what we should expect from Bledsoe going forward, especially with how reliable George Hill has been so far. Hill outplayed Bledsoe in this game, scoring 13 points and hitting three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

Eric Bledsoe caught fire on Saturday and scored 29 points on 11-of-20 shooting to go with four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.
Bledsoe is a top-40 player since he returned from his right fibular avulsion injury with averages of 17.6 points, 3.7 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting .518 from the field. Bledsoe is inside the top-70 on the season and should hover around that value the rest of the way.

Eric Bledsoe recorded 24 points (10-for-17 shooting), five assists, four rebounds, a triple, a steal and a block in Friday's win over the Kings.
Bledsoe led the Bucks in minutes which is a great indication that he's fully past the right fibula avulsion injury that caused him to miss time earlier this season. Looking healthy, Bledsoe should put up top-75 value if healthy.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is probable for Friday's game against the Kings with back soreness.
Antetokounmpo should be good to go for this contest on Friday, but this is just something to monitor in the lead up to the game. If he is unavailable, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe will need to lead from the front.

George Hill was helpful in 21 minutes off the bench, providing 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting, three triples, four boards and four dimes in a road loss to the Spurs on Monday.
Overall, Hill has been pretty boring, but he's a decent streaming point guard option, especially when the Bucks are missing a starter. His fellow point guard, Eric Bledsoe had just eight points (2-of-7 FGs), one rebound, five assists, one block and two treys in 26 minutes. He should bounce back quickly.

Eric Bledsoe scored 21 points (8-of-12) in Saturday's 127-118 win over the Spurs, also chipping in three rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.
Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer has steadily ramped up Bledsoe's minutes in his third game back after missing almost a month with a right fibula avulsion fracture. It is fair to say that Bledsoe quickly found his shooting stroke and was able to contribute nicely across all categories except for blocks. Look for him continue to slowly increase his minutes as the Bucks will see the Spurs again on Monday in San Antonio.

Eric Bledsoe saw his minutes limit jump to 20 in Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves, finishing with 10 points (4-of-10 shooting), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two turnovers.
The line almost looks like a big man's with the solid rebounds and blocks numbers, but all-in-all it's another encouraging line from Bledsoe in short minutes. He looks pretty sharp after missing two weeks of action, and should return to pulling himself back up to the mid-round ranking he was drafted at once his inutes restrictions are lifted.

Eric Bledsoe (right fibula avulsion fracture) played 16 minutes in his return from an eight-game absence and had 15 points (5-of-8 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), three rebounds, three assists, four steals and a three as the Bucks beat the Bulls on Monday.
Aside from the abbreviated minutes, Bledsoe appears to be ready to jump back into competition and fantasy lineups. He's averaging just over 26 minutes for the season, so it shouldn't take long to get back up to speed.

Eric Bledsoe (right fibula avulsion fracture) is available to play on Monday vs. the Bulls.
This was in the cards since the injury report listed him as probable on Sunday. He'll be back as the team's starting PG and it will be interesting to see how his return affects the emergent value of Donte DiVincenzo. Bledsoe also figures to be on a minutes limit until he regains his conditioning, so avoid him in DFS if you can.

Eric Bledsoe (avulsion fracture) is being listed as probable for Monday's game versus the Bulls.
Bledsoe has missed the last two weeks and should be ready to re-enter the starting lineup. Donte DiVencenzo will mostly likely shift back to a bench role, but he's worth holding until we see Bledsoe back up to his regular minutes.

Eric Bledsoe is expected to miss the next two weeks with an avulsion fracture in his right fibula.
Bledsoe was knocked out of Friday's game with a right shin contusion, and the injury appears worse than initially expected. George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo figure to be the big winners and can both be viewed as worthwhile adds in 12-team leagues if you need guard numbers.

Eric Bledsoe (right shin contusion) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.
It's no surprise that the conservative Bucks will be holding him out, both because Bledsoe did not return to Friday's game after suffering the injury and because they're facing a weak Cavs team on Saturday. There have been no indications that the injury is serious, so consider this an unscheduled rest day. George Hill should fill in admirably, while Donte Divincenzo and Sterling Brown will likely see an increase in minutes.

With Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad soreness) missing Wednesday's game, Eric Bledsoe picked up the slack and led the Bucks to victory over the Pelicans, 127-112 with 29 points on 10-of-13 shooting.
Bledsoe was on fire, making 5-of-6 shots from deep, adding six dimes, three boards and two steals in arguably his best game of the season. Bledsoe has not lived up to expectations thus far, but tonight's gem should help rectify his less-than-stellar ranking.
