Wesley Matthews

Fantasy News

  • 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..

    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.

    Wesley Matthews will not play against the Wolves on Wednesday due to a bruised right thigh.

    With Matthews ruled out, Donte DiVincenzo will likely start in his place and can be looked at in DFS lineups. Pat Connaughton, Kyle Korver and George Hill may also see increased minutes off the bench.

    Wesley Matthews (right thigh contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Wolves.

    Matthews missed Monday's game and Donte DiVincenzo started in his place. The Bucks can afford to take extra time with players like Matthews, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit again.

    Wes Matthews (right thigh contusion) will miss Monday's game against the Bulls.

    Eric Bledsoe and Giannis Antetokounmpo are both back for this one, so Wes is likely getting a rest day against a weak Bulls team. Donte Divincenzo had been severely outplaying Matthews before a random blow-up against the Pacers on Sunday, so his role was set to be significantly reduced regardless. He's fine as a threes and steals streamer, but has almost no upside on offer.

    Wesley Matthews made his return from a one-game absence on Sunday against the Pacers, going for 19 points, four 3-pointers, two steals and one block over 28 minutes.

    Matthews returned from a bang and while this was a robust line it should be ignored until we see Matthews do it again. That is two productive games in a row though. George Hill also did some impressive work tonight (17 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three 3-pointers, one steal) and is worth a pickup in 14-team formats as long as Eric Bledsoe is out.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (right thigh contusion) is available for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Hill was previously questionable but is good to fire up in all lineups. He should have another week of standard-league value with Eric Bledsoe out as well, so if he's on waivers in your league we'd give him a long look. Wesley Matthews, who was probable with his right thigh contusion, is also good to go today but is only a deep-league fantasy option.

    Wesley Matthews (right thigh contusion) is being listed as probable on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    He missed Saturday night's game with the same injury and it's likely the Bucks just didn't want to play him in a back-to-back, especially against the Knicks. He'll probably play in this one but is only useful to owners who need triples.

    Wesley Matthews (thigh) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Knicks.

    The Knicks still have plenty of fire power to throttle the Knicks without Matthews and Eric Bledsoe. Sterling Brown should see a few extra minutes and makes for a decent low-owned DFS play.

    Wesley Matthews has been listed as doubtful to face the Knicks on Saturday due to a right thigh contusion.

    Matthews is useful if you are in need of 3-pointers in a deep league but is bland beyond that area. His days of mid-round value are long gone, and he is just one of many on a deep Bucks roster that is not going to produce major fantasy talent.
