    Pat Connaughton had a decent line on Monday with 12 points, five boards, two assists, a steal and two triples.

    Connaughton started and played 21 minutes before landing awkwardly and hitting his head. He didn't return to the game and it was a shame because he had some highlight plays and the production was there for fantasy owners.

    Pat Connaughton (conditioning) played 18 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's matchup with the Nets, producing eight points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Connaughton played his first game since the resumption after his late arrival in Orlando. Despite this being his first game back, Connaughton played 18 minutes as the Bucks went with their bench unit for the majority of the night. This is likely to be about as good as it gets in terms of playing time for Connaughton and there is no reason to eye him off in resumption formats.

    Pat Connaughton (conditioning) has been ruled out of Sunday's matchup as he continues to work his way back to game shape.

    Connaughton will join Eric Bledsoe (conditioning) on the sidelines when the Bucks face the Rockets on Sunday. He is typically just a role player for the Bucks and offers very little in terms of fantasy upside. He can be ignored in most resumption formats.

    Pat Connaughton will miss Friday's opener as he entered the bubble late due to COVID-19.

    Connaughton isn't one of the bigger names, but he was a key reserve for the Bucks, who are also without Eric Bledsoe due to late entry because of COVID-19. Both players are expected to get up to full speed eventually, but for now the Bucks will lean on George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo at the guard spots.

    Pat Connaughton will not play in Monday's scrimmage, according to Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer.

    Connaughton just recently joined the team in the Orlando bubble after being cleared of the COVID-19 virus. He's going to be there for added depth once the NBA season restarts, but won't hold much in terms of fantasy value.

    Pat Connaughton, who tested positive for COVID-19 has been cleared and is headed to join the Bucks in the Orlando bubble.

    Connaughton is a key piece of the Bucks' depth on the wing. He's not going to make your resumption league's top-150 or even top-200 for that matter, but is someone to watch in case the Bucks decide to sit some of their key starters.

    Pat Connaughton has tested positive for COVID-19 and has yet to join the Bucks in Orlando.

    Milwaukee shut its facilities shortly before the team left for the Disney bubble, though they never disclosed who or how many people tested positive. Connaughton says he's feeling great so hopefully he makes a speedy recovery. He'll help round out the Bucks backcourt rotation when he rejoins his teammates.

    Pat Connaughton played in 61 games for the Bucks this year, averaging 5.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.2 triples, 1.6 assists and 0.5 blocks, returning 285/276 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Connaughton was a pleasant surprise and one of the many veterans the Bucks relied upon throughout the season. With Donte DiVincenzo sidelined for most of the year, he filled the need for perimeter shooting and tough defense, establishing himself as a primary option off the bench. He is only a fantasy option in deeper leagues but his stat set is very appealing and he deserves consideration every time he gets the minutes.

    Pat Connaughton started on Monday and scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting to go with three rebounds and one assist.

    Connaughton logged 29 minutes in a start and went 0-for-5 from deep. Wes Matthews (32 minutes, nine points on 2-of-11 shooting to go with six boards, two assists, two steals and a triple) didn't do much better in a start as well. The Bucks rotation was missing a lot of key players tonight and the weaknesses of their role-players got exposed as expected.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    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
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    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.

    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.
