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.

Khris Middleton stepped up on Sunday with 39 points (13-of-26 FG, 10-of-11 FT), three 3-pointers, four assists, two rebounds and four turnovers, in a loss to the Suns.
Middleton certainly brought the scoring in this game as the Suns had nobody who could slow him down, but the team was unable to get stops on the other end without the Giannis Antetokounmpo's presence. Middleton will have every opportunity to carry the load while the Greek Freak is out for at least one more game.

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.

Khris Middleton put together a respectable effort on Wednesday, finishing with 20 points (9-16 FG), eight rebounds and two assists.
Middleton has been on fire, and is currently a top-20 player on the year. Even with Middleton back in the lineup, Donte DiVincenzo had an arguably better game, ending up with 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and block. However, this shouldn't be expected nightly for him.

Khris Middleton cooled off on Monday with 12 points on 4-of-16 shooting while adding seven rebounds, one steal and two triples.
Middleton was a flamethrower before this game so we're going to just chalk it up as a bad night overall as the Heat played great defense against them.

Khris Middleton (neck soreness) is probable for Monday's tilt with the Heat.
Middleton sat out on Sunday against the lowly Hornets, and that's looking like a glorified maintenance day. Get him in your lineups for this big Eastern Conference showdown.

Khris Middleton (neck soreness) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Hornets.
It will be Middleton's second straight game on the sidelines, and it's possible Milwaukee is just giving him additional rest time considering the quality of the opponent. Donte DiVencenzo will likely draw another start in his absence.

Donte DiVincenzo will pick up the start for the Bucks on Friday against the Thunder with Khris Middleton (neck) out.
DiVincenzo has been around a top-100 guy coming off the bench anyway this year, so if you have him make sure he's locked into your lineup. He should get a bump in production on offense on Friday with Middleton on the bench.

Khris Middleton will miss Friday's game against the Thunder with neck soreness.
Middleton had been a beast for the Bucks, and maybe they just want to give him a rest. It's not clear how severe the situation is, but it'll be a replacement by committee while Middleton is out. Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez should benefit nicely.

Khris Middleton is questionable to face the Thunder on Friday due to neck soreness.
This is a new injury on the fantasy radar for Middleton, and he has been playing the best basketball of his career in 2020. If this does keep him out, let's hope it's nothing serious as Middleton has been carrying many teams these past couple of months. His role in the lineup would get distributed across the roster if he did sit out. The Bucks have plenty of depth to fill the void.

Khris Middleton paced the Bucks with a team-high 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes in a 108-97 road win over the Raptors on Tuesday.
While not a spectacular game, Middleton's floor has been raised. He's been a top-10 player for the month, and games like this won't knock him out. The percentages are spectacular for a player that attempts so many triples.

Khris Middleton put up a team-high 40 points on 15-of-28 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes in an overtime win on Monday vs. the Wizards.
Middleton is a top-10 player over the last month. There's not much more to say. He's probably helped position you for a shot at your league championship. Middleton probably won't stick as a first-round player, but most of what he's doing is sustainable.

Khris Middleton continued his strong run of play on Thursday with 28 points, eight rebounds, four triples in 32 minutes against the Pistons.
Middleton is the perfect Robin to GA's Batman. He just goes to work and does his job. That quiet production has vaulted him to 21st overall in 9-cat leagues because he just doesn't hurt fantasy teams (or the Bucks, for that matter) in any way. Just like his nickname, he has been Khash money all year.

Khris Middleton led the Bucks to their 123-111 win over the Kings on Monday with 28 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Middleton led the team in scoring tonight as they played without Giannis Antetokounmpo and it's as if the All-Star nod was deserved. The Bucks are the best team in the league and Middleton is averaging 20.4 points, 6.1 boards, 4.2 dimes, 1.0 steals and 2.4 3s on .508/.437/.903 shooting splits. He's good for top-25 value and anyone in fantasy hoops knows his worth.
