Fantasy News

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (bilateral heel bursitis) will not play on Friday.

    DiVincenzo has been dealing with heel injuries for months now, and until he gains some traction in the rotation he's safe to avoid in all redraft formats.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (left groin soreness) is being listed as probable to play on Friday against the Heat.

    Hill sat out on Wednesday, the second leg of a back-to-back. The team is bringing him along slowly after he missed about a month, and he won't be a fantasy option until his minutes restrictions are lifted — even with Malcolm Brogdon out.

  • Sterling Brown - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Sterling Brown (right wrist soreness) is probable to play on Friday.

    If he returns, it'll put and end to a 13-game absence. He might have some deep-league appeal with Malcolm Brogdon on the shelf but this isn't an add scenario unless you're in a 30-team league.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out for Friday against the Heat.

    Gasol isn't in the rotation in Milwaukee and his utility to the team comes more in the locker room than on the court.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) is probable ahead of Friday's game with the Heat.

    Antetokounmpo should return from a two-game absence tomorrow night, but it may be too little too late for fantasy owners as Milwaukee's four-game week quickly turned to a two-game week for Giannis. Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson will get less action, though they're still going to help replace Nikola Mirotic's minutes. Expect all the other Bucks to get less usage.

  • Eric Bledsoe - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe was excellent in a 102-107 loss to the Cavs on Wednesday, posting 24 points on 7-of-19 shooting with eight rebounds, eight dimes, two 3s and two steals.

    This is the first time Bledsoe has scored over 20 points since March 11, so it's good to see him thrive, even though it is against the Cavs. Take it in stride as he should be a steady source of production with the Bucks missing Nikola Mirotic (thumb) and Malcolm Brogdon (partially torn plantar fascia).

  • Khris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton did a bit of everything in Wednesday's loss to the Cavs, posting 16 points on 10-of-21 shooting with 12 rebounds, one assist, four 3s, one steal and one block.

    Better late than never. Middleton is finally getting his act together as his mediocre 2018-19 season draws to a close. He's stepped up with Giannis Antetokounmpo sidelined with a sprained ankle. It's just a shame that the Bucks could not get it done vs. the rebuilding Cavs tonight.

  • Brook Lopez - C - Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez was solid for the undermanned Bucks on Wednesday, stepping up with 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, three triples, one steal and two blocks.

    Lopez is heating up at just the right time for his owners that are still in contention in fantasy, posting three straight games where he's produced across multiple categories. Ride him to victory.

  • Ersan Ilyasova - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova (illness) will play on Wednesday against the Cavs.

    Ilyasova missed Tuesday's game as he was under the weather, but he'll play tonight. A top-150 finish isn't out of the question given Ilyasova's stat set and Nikola Mirotic's 2-to-4 week timetable, so you can consider him a low-end add if you need rebounds, some 3-pointers and the occasional defensive stat.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Much like Tuesday's game against the Lakers, the Bucks shouldn't need Giannis to take down a vastly inferior opponent. It's a crushing blow to his fantasy owners, but it's big news for anyone leaning on Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez. D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova should pick up the slack off the bench and are viable DFS darts. The Bucks have been blessed with good health throughout the year but have taken three big hits in the last week, though Antetokounmpo's injury is still not a long-term concern.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is out for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    The Bucks are taking a cautious appraoch with the veteran big man. When Gasol returns, he could see a few extra minutes off the bench with Nikola Mirotic expected to miss the next few weeks.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (left groin soreness) is out against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Hill doesn't offer much fantasy value backing up Eric Bledsoe, but there are some extra minutes available with Malcolm Brogdon out. Hill can be ignored in fantasy.

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (heel) is out for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Pat Connaughton and Tony Snell will continue to handle the majority of the minutes at the two, while DiVincenzo and Malcolm Brogdon are out.

  • Ersan Ilyasova - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova (illness) is probable to face the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Ilyasova seems to be over the illness that kept him out of Tuesday's game. WIth Giannis Antetokounmpo questionable and Nikola Mirotic out a few weeks, Ersan may end up in a starting role and see a nice chunk of minutes as a cheap dart in DFS.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) is questionable to play the Cavs on Wednesday.

    With the news that Nikola Mirotic is out for the next few weeks, the Bucks need Giannis back on the floor. If Giannis can't give it a go Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson will have the PF spot to themselves, and make for decent streaming options in a good matchup.
