Wesley Matthews

  • Pat Connaughton
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton started on Monday and scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting to go with three rebounds and one assist.

    Connaughton logged 29 minutes in a start and went 0-for-5 from deep. Wes Matthews (32 minutes, nine points on 2-of-11 shooting to go with six boards, two assists, two steals and a triple) didn't do much better in a start as well. The Bucks rotation was missing a lot of key players tonight and the weaknesses of their role-players got exposed as expected.

    Wesley Matthews finished Sunday's road win with eight points, eight rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Matthews' 3-of-11 mark from the field stings but that's just part of the deal at this point. His threes and steals are down this year as Matthews is averaging just 24.5 mpg on the season, so he's best left for streaming scenarios and deep-league use even if he can post some 3-and-D lines like this from time to time.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe was the third Buck who scored in double-digits on Thursday, scoring 14 points to go along with six rebounds and eight assists in 33 minutes.

    The Bucks won this game by committee outside of the three main guys. No other Buck scored more than nine points. Bledsoe should be a top-75 player the rest of the way. His backcourt mate, Wes Matthews, played 31 minutes for his eight points which included two big 3-pointers.

    Matthews played well Tuesday against the Pelicans and contributed in a big way, hitting five triples and scoring 17 points in total.

    Matthews did not do much besides knock down threes, but that is what we expect from him.

  • 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.

    Wesley Matthews was able to return to the Bucks bench after a brief trip to the locker room on Tuesday.

    Whatever it is that bugged Matthews is apparently nothing serious. We wouldn't be surprised if made it back on the court.

    Wesley Mathews headed to the locker room in Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Matthews is a starting placeholder right now, but guys like Donte DinVincenzo are the ones holding more value. If Matthews is unable to return, expect DiVincenzo, Pat Connaughton and Kyle Korver to pick up the slack.

    Wesley Matthews (illness) is being listed as probable for Friday's game against the Hornets.

    Matthews has put up value outside of the top-200 in both 9/8 cat leagues this season as he continues to be outplayed by Donte DiVincenzo. Matthews is nothing more than an occasional streamer for teams looking for extra threes on small slates.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (right finger sprain) scored 19 points and hit four triples in 28 minutes off the bench.

    DiVincenzo has been worlds better than Wes Matthews and that continued even through a minor injury. Matthews was scoreless in 29 minutes. DiVincenzo is on the cusp of being a top-100 player and unless the Bucks make a move to bring in a wing upgrade, he should continue to play the important minutes for this Bucks team as they find out that Wes Matthews just isn't really the answer.

    Wesley Matthews (left finger sprain) will start on Thursday vs. the Celtics.

    Despite the start, Matthews doesn’t do enough to be relevant outside of 20-team leagues and there might even be better options out there than Matthews.

    Wesley Matthews is probable to play on Thursday with a left finger sprain.

    Matthews has not been able to provide reliable fantasy value and can be left on the wire outside of 20-team deep leagues.

    Wesley Matthews (left finger soreness) is available for the Bucks on Saturday.

    Matthews has been a low-end deep-league play at best this season. As far as we're concerned. Donte DiVincenzo, who's been coming off the bench, has been the SG to own out of Milwaukee.

    Wesley Matthews (left finger soreness) is being listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Blazers.

    Matthews' days of fantasy relevance are numbered and right now his main impact in the fantasy sphere is that his presence on the wings limits Donte DiVincenzo's minutes. No need to pay too much attention to ol' Wes' status.

    Wesley Matthews (bruised right thigh) is not on the injury report on Saturday, connoting that he is available to play.

    Matthews should see a return to the starting lineup, especially with Donte DiVincenzo being given the night off for rest..

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVencenzo was solid in Milwaukee's 106-104 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday, finishing with six points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes.

    DiVencenzo continues to make his money with hustle stats, but the low-end nature of his fantasy game makes him a borderline drop in most standard-league settings. He's probably worth holding onto as long as Wesley Matthews (right thight) is out, but that shouldn't be much longer.
