The Bucks turned in a great season but have tons of questions moving forward

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.

Pat Connaughton put up 12 points and five rebounds on 5-of-10 rebounds in a loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.
He has produced top-80 value in 9-cat formats over the past month and was a great pickup down the stretch for fantasy owners. However, his overall season was not all that impressive as he boasted just top-220/200 in 8/9-cat formats. He averaged 6.9 points and 4.2 rebounds for the season and 10.2 points and 6.8 rebounds over the past month. He should not be on fantasy blips heading into next season unless he changes locations and seemingly lands into an increased role.

The Bucks are listing Pat Connaughton as questionable to face the Thunder on Wednesday, due to a left ankle sprain.
Milwaukee is resting their main guys on the season finale so it’s likely that Connaughton also gets a rest day on the last game of the year. He has been an important part of the bench unit in the second half of the season and he will remain a reliable 3-and-D option for coach Bud heading into the playoffs. Expect to see more of DJ Wilson, Sterling Brown and Bonzie Colson if Connaughton doesn’t dress tonight.

Pat Connaughton filled up the stat sheet again in Saturday's loss to the Nets with 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting while adding eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one triple.
Even with Khris Middleton back in the lineup, Connaughton played one more minute than him and was efficient with his time on the court. The Bucks are just keeping Middleton fresh with the playoffs starting soon so there's no significant threat in Connaughton leap-frogging Middleton in the starting lineup. Get him if you need some help in the 3-point department.

Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Friday’s context with the Nets.
Snell will miss his fifth straight game and Pat Connaughton, George Hill and Sterling Brown will pick up the slack. Ersan Ilyasova (nasal fracture) is probable to play.

Pat Connaughton filled up the stat sheet on Monday against the Nets with 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting while adding seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two triples.
Connaughton drew another start with Khris Middleton dealing with left groin soreness and he deserves a hard look in fantasy leagues for owners in need of a 3-point streamer. The defensive numbers won't always shine like tonight as he got the benefit of playing against the fast-paced Nets.

Pat Connaughton grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds with 17 points, one assist and one 3-pointer in Sunday's loss to the Hawks.
Connaughton played 29 minutes off the bench and turned in another solid outing. This one was helped by Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Tony Snell all being out. As long as Snell is out, Connaughton is a decent deep-league streamer. George Hill also managed 18 points and six boards in 25 minutes.

Pat Connaughton filled up the box score with 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and four threes in 31 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's victory over the Rockets.
A missing Tony Snell in addition to a missing Malcolm Brogdon left a big role for Connaughton tonight. He's been a worthy streamer lately, though he won't likely go 4-for-5 from three again, and Tony Snell could return to cut into his minutes, so this may be the high-water mark.

Pat Connaughton played 28 minutes in Friday's win over the Heat, posting six points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two threes.
Connaughton logged more than starter Tony Snell, who had 22 minutes (10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, two threes), though the garbage time asterisk applies. George Hill is still working his way back from a groin injury and played 18 quiet minutes. This is your committee to replace Malcolm Brogdon, so good luck to any fantasy owners wading into this mess.

Pat Connaughton played a bench-high 25 minutes on Sunday, posting six points, three rebounds, a steal, a block and a pair of 3-pointers.
Connaughton looked like the big beneficiary with Malcolm Brogdon out, even if he didn't start. George Hill is still on a minutes cap and only played 11 minutes, while Tony Snell went from listed starter to eight minutes. There's only deep-league appeal here, with Connaughton the best bet until Hill isn't limited anymore.

Pat Connaughton (sprained right ankle) is listed as probable on Sunday against the Sixers.
Connaughton played well in their previous game covering for Malcolm Brogdon (right plastar fascia tear). He's worth a look if he's still on your wire since Brogdon's injury opens up minutes for the Bucks backcourt.
