    Pat Connaughton (right ankle soreness) is being listed as available to play in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Connaughton doesn't have much of a role this year with the team healthy and Donte DiVincenzo playing so well. He is off the fantasy radar but will have his time to shine in the slam dunk contest during the All-Star break.

    Pat Connaughton (right ankle soreness) is listed as probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans.

    Connaughton popped up on the injury report, but he should be out there and needed by the Bucks with George Hill (left hamstring strain) out once again. Connaughton, the newly announced slam dunk contest participant, makes for a decent threes and rebounds streamer.

    Pat Connaughton (right thigh contusion) will miss Monday's game.

    Connaughton's absence opens up a few more minutes for Donte DiVincenzo, Kyle Korver and Wes Matthews but doesn't really change the fantasy landscape.

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Matthews will not play against the Wolves on Wednesday due to a bruised right thigh.

    With Matthews ruled out, Donte DiVincenzo will likely start in his place and can be looked at in DFS lineups. Pat Connaughton, Kyle Korver and George Hill may also see increased minutes off the bench.

    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (back soreness) has been downgraded to out for Wednesday's matchup against the Hawks.

    Hill will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday but the Bucks will get back Khris Middleton who has been out with a leg injury. Sterling Brown, Pat Connaughton and Kyle Korver could see additional minutes off the bench with Hill out.

    Pat Connaughton played 22 productive minutes off the bench on Thursday, finishing with 18 points and hitting two 3-pointers.

    The Bucks bench mob is really a team effort, which makes it hard to get excited about any single option. Connaughton's best opportunity would come if Wes Matthews put up more dud games in the starting lineup. This was not that game, as Matthews hit four triples for his 12 points.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo will draw his first start of his NBA career on Thursday in place of the injured Khris Middleton as the Bucks take on the Bulls.

    DiVincenzo will get the first crack at filling in for Khris Middleton on Thursday and will have plenty of opportunity given Middleton was a key part of their offense and the team's second leading scorer (18.5 points per game). He is currently in competition with Sterling Brown and Pat Connaughton but seems to have the edge for the time being.

    Pat Connaughton (right shoulder strain) is listed as questionable to face the Raptors on Saturday.

    Connaughton suffered the injury in Friday's game but returned after a trip to the locker room so the injury does not appear to be serious even if he is held out on Saturday. He is putting up top-165 value over his first five games in only 17.7 minutes with 7.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.6 triples but he should probably be avoided unless his playing time increases.

    After a trip to the locker room on Friday, Pat Connaughton returned to the game and finished with four points on 2-of-9 shooting, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

    His shoulder might be sore tonight, but it's a definite good sign that he was able to return. He's not on any fantasy radars, so there's nothing more to see here.

    Pat Connaughton appears to have suffered a shoulder injury on Friday and has headed to the locker room.

    Connaughton has not been on fantasy radars, but he's been playing significant minutes for the Bucks. We could see some Sterling Brown if Connaughton cannot return.

    Bucks will rest Robin Lopez and Pat Connaughton during Sunday's preseason game versus the Wizards.

    Lopez is in line to back up his brother Brook Lopez, but could get some run along side of him as well. Neither Connaughton or Robin Lopez are worth drafting in standard leagues.

    Pat Connaughton grabbed 10 boards and scored nine points in 33 effective minutes in the Bucks' Game 4 victory on Monday.

    Connaughton shot 3-for-7 from the field and hit 2-of-3 free throws while also adding one assist and a block on a 3-point attempt on his way to a game-best plus/minus of plus-22. He's been a revelation of sorts over the last month or so. He's a good player to keep an eye on as the Bucks make some key free agency decisions over the summer. He just might have some sneaky fantasy value if he's around to carve out a larger role.

    Pat Connaughton went 2-for-10 from the field in Sunday's loss to the Celtics.

    Boston was comfortable with Connaughton taking shots, and rightfully so. There's no world in which he should be getting more attempts than Eric Bledsoe or Brook Lopez, but with Malcolm Brogdon still out someone will need to keep the defense honest out of the backcourt. Starter Sterling Brown went 1-for-7 in his 22 minutes.

    Pat Connaughton had a stellar game off the bench in Wednesday's Game 2 win over the Pistons, scoring 18 points (8-of-10 from the floor) to go with nine rebounds, four blocks.

    The blocks were a career high and really shows the energy he displayed in this one. It's possible that this could be the best line Connaughton has during this playoff run, and he should be an important bench piece for Milwaukee as they go deep into the postseason. He likely made a lot of DFS owners pretty happy with this game.
