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.

Robin Lopez got the start in place of his brother Brook Lopez and scored 13 points in Saturday's win over the Hornets, chipping in six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and three 3's.
Starting for his resting brother, Brook, Robin played 24 minutes and had a solid overall outing contributing in several key categories. The career-high three 3-pointers is nice but the three blocks is nicer treat for fantasy owners that may have streamed him in DFS. Though owners should not be racing to claim him off the waiver wire he could continue to provide marginal value if his brother continues to miss any more time in the future.
November 30, 2019, 11:09 pmCody ZellerC, Charlotte Hornets
Cody Zeller returned from a two-game absence to score 11 points off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Bucks, chipping in five rebounds and one 3.
Zeller came off the bench in this one and ended up getting more minutes than teammate Bismack Biyombo. The minutes were more of a function of Biyombo's inability to protect the paint and the Bucks' Robin Lopez forcing him out of the paint. Zeller should regain the starting spot and will continue to provide fantasy owners with efficient scoring and rebounding.

Robin Lopez will draw the start in place of his brother Brook Lopez during Saturday's game versus the Hornets.
Lopez becomes a solid DFS and streaming option with his brother out. Ersan Ilyasova will also be a beneficiary and will act as the back up power forward and center.

Robin Lopez scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting with two rebounds, and an assist in Thursday's game against the Rockets.
Lopez only logged 16 minutes off the bench and isn't worth owning as long as the Bucks are healthy.

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.
