Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Grabs 10 boards in win
Connaughton closed with eight points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and one steal over 32 minutes during Thursday's 106-105 win over the Clippers.
All of Connaughton's points came in the second quarter on 3-of-3 shooting from the field, as he attempted only two more shots between the other three quarters. The shooting guard flashed on the defensive end, however, grabbing 10 rebounds and a steal to help the Bucks come away with their sixth consecutive win. It was Connaughton's third time this season posting double-digit rebounds, while he's now recorded at least one steal in five straight.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Has another 50-point night
Antetokounmpo had 54 points (21-39 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 10-15 FT), 19 rebounds and two assists over 36 minutes during Thursday's 106-105 victory over the Clippers.
Antetokounmpo was spectacular Thursday, racking up 20 first-half points on 9-of-18 shooting from the field before pouring in another 34 in the second half, along with 11 rebounds. The superstar forward finished with a game-high 54 points on the night, his third 50-point game in his last 11 contests, while also leading the game in rebounds with 19. Antetokounmpo has now shot above 50 percent and recorded a double-double in six straight games.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' AJ Green: Makes six three-pointers
Green logged 24 points (9-24 FG, 6-14 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 30 minutes during the Herd's 115-111 win against Westchester on Wednesday.
Green has made six three-pointers in each of his last two games. Currently, he is averaging 4.7 threes made on a 42.4 percentage on the campaign. Green will continue receiving the green light to shoot three-pointers as part of the Herd's starting backcourt.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' MarJon Beauchamp: Will suit up Thursday
Beauchamp (knee) is expected to be available for Thursday's game against the Clippers, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
Beauchamp was listed as probable leading up to the contest, so his availability was to be expected. However, he failed to see the court in Tuesday's game and will remain a fringe rotation piece for the Bucks.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Expected to play
Antetokounmpo (knee) is expected to play Thursday against the Clippers, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
Antetokounmpo was listed as probable, so there was never much doubt about his playing status. He's been on quite a tear over the past four games, scoring 30-plus in each outing, so make sure you have him active.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' MarJon Beauchamp: Likely to play Thursday
Beauchamp is probable for Thursday's game versus the Clippers despite right patella tendinitis.
Beauchamp was also deemed probable for Tuesday's game before being upgraded to available. However, he didn't receive any minutes against Charlotte, so it is unlikely he will impact Milwaukee's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Probable with right knee soreness
Antetokounmpo is probable for Thursday's matchup against the Clippers due to right knee soreness.
Antetokounmpo continues to deal with right knee soreness, but since missing five games in mid-January, the MVP candidate has appeared in five consecutive contests. During that stretch, he's averaging 37.4 points, 13.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 31.6 minutes. Barring a setback, Antetokounmpo figures to suit up again Thursday, but fantasy managers are still encouraged to confirm his availability ahead of the 10 p.m. ET tip.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Continues efficient run
Antetokounmpo recorded 34 points (14-24 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 18 rebounds and four assists in 36 minutes in Tuesday's 124-115 win over the Hornets.
The Hornets have been dominated by opposing frontcourt players all season, and Antetokounmpo ensured that trend continued Tuesday, as he came through with another efficient, high-scoring effort. Antetokounmpo even delivered a rare quality showing from the free-throw line, though fantasy managers have surely committed to punting that category while the two-time MVP has converted only 64.6 percent of his 13.2 attempts per game this season. Fortunately, Antetokounmpo has at least resumed knocking down shots in the paint since he returned to action after he had endured a string of inefficient outings before sitting out five straight games with a knee injury. In his first five games since his return, Antetokounmpo is averaging 37.4 points on 61.5 percent shooting from the field.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' AJ Green: Scores 30 points
Green logged 30 points (12-17 FG, 6-8 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 37 minutes during the Herd's 131-116 loss at Long Island on Monday.
If Green continues to be a part of the Milwaukee Bucks' G League team, he is expected to be one of their best contributors. Monday's game indicated such, as Green scored six three-pointers to make up 60 percent of his 30 points.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Joe Ingles: Subdued effort in victory
Ingles recorded eight points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes during Tuesday's 124-115 victory over Charlotte.
Ingles didn't offer a lot in the win, scoring single digits for the sixth straight game. Although he has been able to earn a regular spot in the rotation, he typically sees no more than about 25 minutes on any given night. He can be used for streaming purposes, especially on low-volume nights, by anyone in need of either points or threes. In terms of long-term value, those days have come and gone.... See More ...

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Scores season-high 11 points
Matthews logged 11 points (3-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block over 16 minutes during Tuesday's 124-115 win over the Hornets.
Matthews dropped in three triples en route to a season-high 11 points Tuesday. While this was a nice little bonus for anyone who happened to stream him in on such a low-volume night, it really highlights that he is a spent force at this point. Prior to this game, he had failed to score more than eight points all season. Outside of some deep-league streaming, he should remain a permanent fixture on waiver wires everywhere.... See More ...

Bucks' Jrue Holiday: Dominates glass Tuesday
Holiday recorded 15 points (6-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals across 36 minutes during Tuesday's 124-115 victory over the Hornets.
Holiday racked up another double-double in the win, although not as we would normally expect. His 13 rebounds marked a season high, certainly coming out of the blue. While it was his first double-digit rebounding game of the season, he has pulled down at least seven rebounds in three straight games. This shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a flash in the pan, although managers have to be thrilled with what he is bringing to the table.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' MarJon Beauchamp: Upgraded to available
Beauchamp (knee) is good to go for Tuesday's game versus Charlotte.
Beauchamp was probable Tuesday due to right patella tendinitis but has been upgraded to available Tuesday. However, he's averaged just 6.3 minutes across his last three appearances.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Will play Tuesday
Antetokounmpo (knee) will take the floor Tuesday versus the Hornets.
Antetokounmpo was expected to give it a go again Tuesday and that will indeed be the case. The Greek Freak has been on fire over the past couple of games, compiling a combined 91 points against the Pelicans and Pacers while shooting 65.5 percent from the field and a surprising 45.5 percent from beyond the arc. He should have a decent shot at another big game Tuesday against a Hornets team that ranks in the bottom five in defensive rating.... See More ... See Less
