Robin Lopez played 20 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Nets, ending with just two points, two rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal as the starting center.
Lopez got the nod ahead of his brother, Brook Lopez, who was given the night off. The Bucks rolled with basically their second and third units for the majority of this one. It would appear as though they are simply getting their main guys ready for the upcoming playoff run and so Lopez is unlikely to have any sustained fantasy value.

Robin Lopez has replaced his brother, Brook Lopez, in the starting lineup on Tuesday.
The Nets are running a real skeleton crew today and the Bucks might be using this as an opportunity to rest BroLo. Feel free to get Robin into DFS lineups as a cheap punt play against an undersized opponent.

Brook Lopez scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting to go with two 3-pointers and five rebounds in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Pelicans.
Lopez didn't record a single block and went 2-for-7 from deep so it wasn't his best night on the floor, but it's good to get these performances out of the way while they're still scrimmages. His brother Robin Lopez played 19 minutes and scored eight points on 3-of-7 shooting to go with three boards, two assists, a steal and a triple.

Robin Lopez finished around fantasy's top-350 mark in 2019-20, settling into a clear backup role with the Bucks.
Lopez did appear in 60 games but saw just 14.4 minutes per contest, his lowest playing time since a 2012 campaign with the Suns. While RoLo got with Milwaukee's program and shot a career-high .366 from deep, he also shot a career-low .535 from the free throw line. His 0.7 blocks per game kept him on the radar as a desperation blocks specialist but it looks like it'll take a new team to reinvigorate Lopez as a potential late-round asset.

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.

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.
