Robin Lopez started on Monday and scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting while adding five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Lopez got a lot of extra run today and was a beneficiary of the Bucks resting their starters. He can be ignored.

Brook Lopez (sore back) is being listed as probable ahead of Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
Lopez missed Monday's overtime win against the Wizards on Monday but looks to be ready to go on the second night of a back-to-back against the number two seeded Raptors. Robin Lopez, who started in place of his brother, will return to a reserve role off the bench.

Robin Lopez started in place of his brother Brook and filled in admirably, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting, three 3-pointers, three blocks, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes on Monday vs. the Wizards.
Lopez had at least one big defensive play late in this close overtime match. The threes and blocks look just like what we hope to get from Brook Lopez (back soreness), who could miss additional time. Though, his absence isn't expected to be a long one.

Robin Lopez made a splash off the bench for the Bucks on Saturday, chipping in 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, including two 3s, plus one assist and one block.
Lopez has not made any significant impact in fantasy prior to this solid outing, so he can be left on the worse for now.
February 6, 2020, 10:56 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez had a quiet night on Thursday with just four points and three blocks in 25 minutes.
The offense wasn't there for Lopez in this game as he only scored two buckets. It's been a quieter offensive year for Lopez thus far but the shot blocking alone has maintained his top-50 status. Somehow, he is even more valuable than that as an elite rim protector for the best defensive team in the league. His brother, Robin Lopez, outproduced him in this game with nine points and two blocks in 20 minutes.

Robin Lopez will miss Monday's contest against the Bulls as he continues to recover from an illness.
Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson should continue to see added minutes for however long Lopez remains out.

Robin Lopez is doubtful to play against the Bulls on Monday as he recovers from an illness.
The minutes will shift towards Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson in all likelihood, but Lopez is just an end of the bench option for the Bucks. You do not need to go running to stream Ilyasova or Wilson on Monday, especially with nearly every NBA squad suiting up.

Robin Lopez (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nets.
We should see a more Ersan Ilyasova backing up the five with Lopez sidelined, with D.J. Wilson getting a few extra minutes.

Robin Lopez (illness) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday versus the Nets.
Lopez has been off the fantasy map this year while playing only 14.3 minutes per game. If he does sit out, expect Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson to split his minutes.

Robin Lopez (rest) will sit out on Tuesday when the Bucks take on the Knicks.
There will be no revenge game for the backup Lopez twin this time. This is Lopez's first missed game of the season, so it's not totally clear how the Bucks will handle it. D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova should be in line for at least a few more minutes on Tuesday.
January 5, 2020, 12:16 amLaMarcus AldridgePF, San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled in Saturday's loss to the Bucks, scoring 16 points (5-of-14), 10 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers.
Aldridge had a difficult night in the post as he was smothered by the Lopez twins in this one. He was inefficient from the field, going 5-of-14, and abandoned his normal mid-range game to take a season-high seven 3-pointers. Besides the poor shooting he also failed to register a block further dampening this game for his fantasy owners. Unfortunately the Spurs will see the Bucks again on Monday so Aldridge has time to reset before the match-up.

Robin Lopez finished Saturday's home win with 17 points, three rebounds and a 3-pointer on 7-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes of action.
Lopez got some extra run in this one with Giannis Antetokounmpo out, though he typically doesn't exceed 20 minutes outside of blowout situations otherwise. Not to be outdone, brother Brook had three steals and three blocks to make up for a 5-of-16 shooting night with no 3-pointers. BroLo is the bro to know for fantasy managers, but it's clear that Robin has some low-end streaming appeal for as long as Antetokounmpo is out.

Robin Lopez scored 16 points with six rebounds and one block in 21 minutes on Saturday.
Lopez played eight minutes on Friday and scored three points with two rebounds. He can be left on the wire, even in deep leagues.
December 11, 2019, 1:03 pmGiannis AntetokounmpoPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad soreness) will not play on Wednesday.
The Bucks are 21-3, so it makes sense for them to be careful with their star. Robin Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova should see a bump in minutes. Antetokounmpo is off to an excellent start even by his standards with 30.9 points and 13.2 rebounds per game.

Robin Lopez didn't do much in 23 minutes on the court in Monday's win over the Knicks, mustering just four points on 1-of-5 shooting with three rebounds, one steal and one block in a spot start for his brother Brook Lopez.
RoLo is only a low-end play, even in deep leagues at this point, even with BroLo sidelined. Look elsewhere for more reliable big-man production.
