    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.

    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.

    Wesley Matthews scored 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting while adding four rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Matthews was one of many Bucks players to catch fire from deep tonight , but is still sitting at value outside of the top-175 on the year. He only hits 1.6 3s a game, which isn't much considering the other options on the wire so he can be ignored in most formats.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo scored 12 points and grabbed six boards in 28 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Hawks.

    DiVincenzo has filled in admirably for Khris Middleton over the last couple weeks. We'll see whether he maintains his starting spot at the expense of Wesley Matthews or is relegated to a bench role once again once Middleton is back in the starting lineup. Dropping out of the starting lineup would make DiVincenzo a streaming option at best.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton scored 16 points and two steals off the bench in 20 minutes on Wednesday as he returned from a leg contusion suffered earlier in the month.

    Middleton came back a little bit before schedule after suffering the injury on November 10th and produced nicely in his first game. It wasn't an exciting final line but being able to have that output in such a short night is encouraging. Given how well Donte DiVincenzo has played in Middleton's absence, we may see some lost playing time for Wesley Matthews (10 points and two 3-pointers in this game).

    Khris Middleton (leg) will come off the bench in his first game back on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

    Middleton is returning to game-action only 17 days after suffering a leg injury where the original timetable was 3-4 weeks. Expect some rust for Middleton who has missed the last seven games. As Middleton gets back to form, Donte DiVincenzo and Wesley Matthews could see their fantasy values dip.

    According to Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinal, Khris Middleton (leg) said that he will play in Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Middleton's return would be a huge boost to the current Eastern Conference leaders. If Middleton can go, one of Donte DiVincenzo or Wesley Matthews will get bumped from the starting lineup. DiVincenzo has put up top 89/96 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past two weeks and has proven to be the better of the two players in the absence of Middleton.

    Wesley Matthews caught fire on Monday, hitting 5-of-8 shots from long range to finish with 19 points on 6-of-9 shooting, four rebounds and two assists.

    Matthews has mostly been unreliable this season, so we'd recommend a wait-and-see approach before rushing to the wire after this performance.

  • Pat Connaughton
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton played 22 productive minutes off the bench on Thursday, finishing with 18 points and hitting two 3-pointers.

    The Bucks bench mob is really a team effort, which makes it hard to get excited about any single option. Connaughton's best opportunity would come if Wes Matthews put up more dud games in the starting lineup. This was not that game, as Matthews hit four triples for his 12 points.

    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Matthews scored 15 points, with 10 of them coming at the free throw line, to go along with four rebounds in 27 minutes on Thursday.

    Matthews had a decent game but didn't even do the damage where we would expect him to. He made 10 out of 13 free throws and made only one 3-pointer. He hasn't been good enough to be worth a look despite what seems like a promising role as a starting wing on a strong Bucks team. Unfortunately there's nothing to be excited about here.

    Wesley Matthews played just nine minutes before injuring his ankle and ended up with just two points in Saturday's win against the Raptors.

    Matthews returned to the bench but did not return to the game following an early ankle injury. Matthews was drop worthy before the start of the game and with this injury should further incentivize fantasy managers to seek better options.
