    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Matthews (calf) is listed as out on the injury report and will not play against the Nets on Tuesday.

    Matthews' absence is likely just a precaution given they are playing a vastly understrength Nets team. Despite the fact he remains a starter for the Bucks, Matthews' contributions are mediocre at best and his absence shouldn't move the fantasy needle all too much. However, there should be additional playing time for players such as Donte DiVincenzo, Sterling Brown and George Hill.

    Sterling Brown logged 23 minutes off the bench for the Bucks on Friday in their first game back in action after the long NBA hiatus.

    Brown finished his night with just three points (1-of-4 FG, 0-for-3 3PT) but added six rebounds and three steals in his time on the floor. Brown's role in Mike Budenholzer's offensive rotation has fluctuated all season long and Friday's game featured a relatively larger dose of Brown. It's hard to see him building fantasy value anytime in the near future. He has a role on a championship-caliber team, however.

    Sterling Brown had a down year averaging 5.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.8 triples and 0.5 steals in 45 games, good for 333/337 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.

    Brown was part of a deep backcourt but he made the most out of his playing time while taking advantage of the minutes created due to multiple injuries. His percentages were down but the Bucks trust him as a defensive wing, a much-needed commodity in today’s NBA. Brown is only a deep-league option and he will continue to compete primarily with Donte DiVincenzo for more minutes next to Giannis and Khris Middleton.

    Sterling Brown started on Monday and scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists, a block and three 3-pointers.

    Brown put up numbers tonight in a start and could be a triples specialist if Eric Bledsoe (knee) continues to miss time.

    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.

    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.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (left ankle sprain) is questionable to play in Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    DiVincenzo has been an excellent source of steals on the season, averaging 1.5 per game. He also has shown an ability to rebound well for his position and can hit three-pointers on good efficiency. He should be on fantasy rosters across formats as he is currently inside the top-100. Kyle Korver, Wesley Matthews and Sterling Brown could all see additional opportunity if Donte misses Friday's game.

    Sterling Brown only needed 18 minutes to record 11 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two triples, a steal and a block in Friday's win over the Kings.

    This is just an outlier performance from Brown, who rarely produces like this unless he receives extra minutes when the Bucks are dealing with injuries. Don't rush to add Brown as he will continue to be a fantasy afterthought. His teammate, Donte DiVincenzo, also had a nice game with 18 points, four triples, three rebounds, three steals and an assist and has a much better chance at sustaining fantasy relevance.

    Sterling Brown (right AC joint sprain) will be available for Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons.

    Brown had his moments when the Bucks dealt with some injuries earlier on in the season. However, when the team is at full strength, he doesn't have the opportunity to produce fantasy value worthy of standard leagues. He is currently on pace to finish the year outside the top-200 in both 8 and 9 cat leagues.

    Sterling Brown (right AC joint sprain) will miss Monday's game.

    Brown already missed games on Friday and Saturday with the shoulder ailment. He has rebounding ability but isn't a major contributor.

    Sterling Brown (right AC joint sprain) will not play on Saturday.

    Brown also missed Friday's game and he shouldn't be counted on for the near future. His absence might open up more time for Pat Connaughton, but there's not much for fantasy purposes.

    Sterling Brown (right shoulder sprain) is out for Friday.

    Brown is dealing with a sprained AC joint, which figures to cost him a couple games. He's averaging 17.0 mpg this season, and the Bucks will need to spread that around a few different players. There's no real fantasy impact, though.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (back soreness) has been downgraded to out for Wednesday's matchup against the Hawks.

    Hill will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday but the Bucks will get back Khris Middleton who has been out with a leg injury. Sterling Brown, Pat Connaughton and Kyle Korver could see additional minutes off the bench with Hill out.

    Sterling Brown scored seven points and grabbed 10 rebounds to go with one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes off of the bench on Saturday.

    Brown can be used as a deep-league streamer while Khris Middleton is out, but Donte DiVincenzo (six points in 24 minutes on Saturday) is the preferred option.
