For The Last 365 Days
 
Ersan Ilyasova, F3/26/2015 10:56:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova had a memorable game Thursday versus Indiana.
Insight: He scored a career-high 34 points by going 12-of-14 from the field, 5-of-6 from the line, and 5-of-6 from downtown. Ilyasova also had six rebounds, two assists, two steals, and zero turnovers. Quite a night.
Ersan Ilyasova, F3/24/2015 10:50:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova scored a team-high 19 points on Tuesday night.
Insight: He also had 11 boards to complete his double-double. Ilyasova shot 7-of-15 from the floor, 3-of-4 from the line, and 2-of-5 from deep, and also managed two assists, one steal, three blocks, and one turnover.
Khris Middleton, F3/24/2015 10:46:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton hit a crazy game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer as Milwaukee beat, 89-88, on Tuesday.
Insight: Milwaukee trailed Miami, 85-71, but allowed just nine points in the final quarter. With about 10 seconds left, Jarryd Bayless forced a jump ball in Miami's end off of a missed free throw. Bayless won the tip, and Milwaukee then drove to the basket. The lay up was no good, but Zaza Pachulia grabbed the rebound and dished the ball to Middleton, who threw up a 3-pointer at the buzzer. It was a perfect swish. The ending was one of the most exciting this NBA season. Middleton finished with 13 points, four rebounds and two assists.
Michael Carter-Williams, G3/22/2015 6:06:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams led the team with 19 points in the loss on Sunday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Carter-Williams has scored 19 points in back-to-back games but the two games were still polar opposites. On Friday, he shot 26.9 percent with six rebounds and four assists. Sunday, Carter-Williams shot 64.3 percent with five assists, four steals, three rebounds and two blocks. In general, Carter-Williams only produces in games where he shoots a great percentage, and that doesn't happen often because he is shooting 35.3 percent in March.
Khris Middleton, F3/20/2015 10:45:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton hit four 3-pointers in the triple-overtime defeat to the Nets on Friday.
Insight: Middleton finished 11-of-23 overall and 4-for-8 from the 3-point line on his way to a team-high 29 points. He also had eight rebounds, six assists and three steals. When Middleton is clicking like this from downtown, he is a nice fantasy player, but that usually doesn't happen often enough.
Jared Dudley, F3/20/2015 12:05:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley (sore knee) will not play Friday.
Insight: Dudley has very little fantasy value averaging 7.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.8 apg, 0.9 spg.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F3/17/2015 10:23:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo was very efficient during Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans.
Insight: Antetokounmpo shot 6-of-9 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line for 15 points, nine boards, five assists, three blocks, and one turnover. He has the ability to fill the stat sheet on a nightly basis.
Michael Carter-Williams, G3/17/2015 3:05:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams made it through the morning shootaround and is probable for Tuesday's game against New Orleans.
Insight: Carter-Williams is coming off a 28-point, eight-rebound, four-assist effort against the Pacers. Make sure he's back in your lineup.
Jared Dudley, F3/16/2015 2:02:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley (sore knee) was sent home for treatment.
Insight: Dudley has very little fantasy value averaging 7.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.8 apg, 0.9 spg. He'll join O.J. Mayo on the ride home to see the doctor.
O.J. Mayo, G3/16/2015 1:59:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo (hamstring) was sent home for treatment, according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Michael Carter-Williams, G3/12/2015 9:56:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams has seemingly found his groove with Milwaukee.
Insight: He went 8-of-20 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line for 28 points during Thursday's overtime loss against the Pacers. Carter-Williams also chipped in eight rebounds, four assists, four steals, and three turnovers. He has been fantastic of late.

Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is expected to miss Thursday's game against Indiana.
Insight: Mayo missed four games, then came back Wednesday, but apparently aggravated the injury.
Jerryd Bayless, G3/12/2015 12:06:00 PM
Description: Bucks backup guard Jerryd Bayless is questionable for Thursday's game against Indiana due to a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Bayless missed Wednesday's game. He's only scored in double-digits one time over the past five games, so he has very limted fantasy value.
Khris Middleton, F3/11/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton was fantastic during Wednesday's victory over the Magic.
Insight: Middleton shot 12-of-17 from the field, 2-of-2 from the line, and 4-of-4 from downtown for 30 points, five assists, three rebounds, two steals, and just one turnover. He is a top-50 option in standard leagues.

Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams had his best game with Milwaukee so far, scoring 25 points in the loss to the Pelicans on Monday.
Insight: Carter-Williams was 8-for-17 from the field and shot an incredible 9-of-10 from the line. Carter-Williams is now 15-for-16 at the foul line in his last three games. That's quite an improvement from 66.0 percent in 42 games with Philadelphia this season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F3/9/2015 10:37:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a season-high 29 points in the loss to the Bucks on Monday.
Insight: Antetokounmpo was 11-for-16 from the field and 7-of-7 at the line with five rebounds, four assists, three blocks and three steals. Wow, that's quite a game. The Greak Freak has been playing very well since the beginning of February, averaging 14.9 ppg and 8.1 rpg since then.

Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton nailed six 3-pointers during Saturday's victory over the Wizards.

Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is expected to miss Saturday's game against Washington.
Insight: Mayo missed two games last week, then played 27 minutes last Saturday and has missed the last three games. Mayo has the potential to hit big in the scoring and 3-point categories.

Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova scored a team-high 21 points during Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets.

Jared Dudley, F3/3/2015 2:34:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley (sore knee) is probable for Tuesday's game against Denver.
Insight: Dudley injured his kneecap, which is something he injured last season. Dudley has very little fantasy value averaging 7.9 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.0 spg.
O.J. Mayo, G3/2/2015 3:32:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is expected to miss Tuesday's game against Denver.
Insight: Mayo missed two games last week, then played 27 minutes on Saturday. Mayo has the potential to hit big in the scoring and 3-point categories. Jared Dudley is expected to return and he will likely get some Mayo minutes.
Michael Carter-Williams, G3/1/2015 9:19:00 AM
Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams played much better in his third start with Milwaukee than his first two.
Insight: Carter-Williams had just 15 points in his first two games combined with Milwaukee, but he scored 16 on Saturday versus the Jazz. He also had five rebounds, four steals and three assists. Although he hasn't been scoring yet, Carter-Williams has been shooting a much better percentage with the Bucks. It's been just three games, but Carter-Williams is shooting 57.1 percent from the field for Milwaukee.
O.J. Mayo, G2/28/2015 8:12:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo hamstring will suit up on Saturday versus the Jazz.
Insight: Mayo is a decent plug-in option on Saturday because Jared Dudley will not play with a knee injury. Mayo has the potential to hit big in the scoring and 3-point categories.
Jared Dudley, F2/28/2015 8:05:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley is not playing versus the Jazz on Saturday.
Insight: Dudley injured his kneecap, which is something he injured last season. Dudley can be dropped in standard leagues just because it is unclear when he will return. Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless are expected to receive most of Dudley's minutes.
O.J. Mayo, G2/27/2015 3:55:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo hamstring will not play Friday versus the Lakers.
Insight: Mayo has scored in double digits in six straight games before Monday's outing. He's averaging 11.9 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.8 apg so his fantasy value is still limited by his one-dimensional play.
John Henson, C2/25/2015 10:31:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson lost his starting job on Wednesday, but finished with a team-high 21 points.
Insight: Henson played 29 minutes and shot 9-of-12 from the floor and 3-of-5 from the line. He also managed nine boards, two assists, three blocks, two steals, and three turnovers. Zaza Pachulia started at center, but played just 19 minutes.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/25/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams started and played 18 minutes during his first game with the team.
Insight: He went up against his former squad, going 3-of-5 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line for seven points, eight assists, two steals, and one turnover. MCW will need a little time to get acclimated, but should put up decent numbers.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/24/2015 10:02:00 AM
Description: Point guard Michael Carter-Williams (sprained toe) gets a chance to play against the team that just traded him on Wednesday and that should be motivation enough to get him back on the court.
Insight: MCW (15.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 7.4 apg) might not be fantasy worthy, however, as he may play limited minutes in his first game back. He hasn't played since before the All-Star break, but he is a must-start option once he gets healthy.
Khris Middleton, F2/23/2015 10:22:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton had 17 points in the loss to the Bulls on Monday.
Insight: Middleton was 8-of-19 from the field. He also had six rebounds, three steals and two assists. Middleton has played very well this month and is benefiting from the trade that sent Brandon Knight to Phoenix. This month, Middleton is averaging 16.8 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 3.1 apg and 2.0 spg.
Ersan Ilyasova, F2/23/2015 7:01:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova will start at power forward versus the Bulls.
Insight: That sends Jared Dudley to the bench. Ilyasova has not played well this month, averaging just 5.2 ppg and 1.8 rpg although he has never logged more than 18 minutes this month either. He can be left on the waiver wire for now.
Jerryd Bayless, GHot2/23/2015 1:40:00 PM
Description: Bucks backup guard Jerryd Bayless should see a third consecutive start with Michael Carter-Williams sidelined.
Insight: Bayless has started the past two games and averaged a solid 12 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 5.5 apg in two starts.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/23/2015 1:39:00 PM
Description: Point guard Michael Carter-Williams (sprained toe) will miss another game Monday night.
Insight: MCW (15.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 7.4 apg) will eventually take over for Brandon Knight, who was traded to Phoenix. Jerryd Bayless has started the past two games and averaged a solid 12 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 5.5 apg in two starts.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F2/22/2015 6:01:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo had 19 points in Milwaukee's loss to Atlanta on Sunday.
Insight: Antetokounmpo was 7-for-15 from the field and 5-of-5 at the line. He also had four rebounds, two blocks and a steal.
O.J. Mayo, G2/21/2015 10:52:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo is questionable for Sunday's game against Atlanta after injuring a hamstring in Friday's win over Denver.
Insight: Mayo has scored in double digits in six straight games and nine out of his last 10, so this is bad timing for him and fantasy owners. We hope to get a better update before Sunday.
Ersan Ilyasova, F2/21/2015 10:50:00 AM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova did not play on Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: He isn't hurt, just ill. Ilyasova can play the game of basketball, but can't seem to stay on the court and fantasy owners are loathe to take a chance when every night he's a question mark.
Ersan Ilyasova, F2/20/2015 8:37:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova will not play on Friday.
Insight: Ilyasova isn't hurt, but for whatever reason, he just can't stay on the court. Ilyasova is out Friday with an illness.
Jerryd Bayless, G2/20/2015 7:14:00 PM
Description: Bucks backup guard Jerryd Bayless will start on Friday versus the Nuggets.
Insight: The team sent Brandon Knight to Phoenix and newly acquired Michael Carter-Williams is dealing with a toe injury, so Bayless is pushed into the starting lineup. He really only has value in daily leagues.
Jerryd Bayless, G2/20/2015 3:54:00 PM
Description: Bucks backup guard Jerryd Bayless could get a one-time start at the point Friday against Denver.
Insight: Just acquired Michael Carter-Williams is still dealing with a toe injury and the team traded Brandon Knight to Phoenix. That doesn't leave many choices for coach Jason Kidd.
Michael Carter-Williams, G2/19/2015 4:18:00 PM
Description: Point guard Michael Carter-Williams (sprained toe) was traded to Milwaukee at the deadline.
Insight: MCW (15.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 7.4 apg) will take over for Brandon Knight, after he gets over a toe injury, which is still likely a couple of games away. He'll have to share the ball more in Milwaukee than he did in Philadelphia and his scoring might take a small hit.
Larry Sanders, C2/18/2015 12:02:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders has agreed to a buyout with Milwaukee, according to Marc Stein of Espn.
Insight: The deal is all but done, and an announcement is expected soon. Sanders will be an intriguing option for NBA teams, but will not make a big impact in the fantasy world.
Brandon Knight, G2/11/2015 10:29:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 20 points during Wednesday's win against the Kings.
Insight: Knight also had six rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers, and four turnovers. He is deserving of an All-Star bid.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F2/9/2015 10:45:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo nearly recorded a triple-double in Milwaukee's victory over Brooklyn.
Insight: Antetokounmpo was 4-of-9 from the field on his way to 12 points. He didn't light up any one category, but he did also have nine rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a block. Antetokounmpo has been playing extremely well lately and rebounding very well for a guard. He is averaging 18.0 ppg and 10.6 rpg over the last five games.
Jared Dudley, F2/9/2015 10:41:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley led the team with 19 points as he shot 70 percent from the field on Monday versus the Nets.
Insight: Dudley was 7-of-10 and hit all five of this 3-point attempts. He also had four rebounds, three steals and two assists. Obviously, this is an aberration for Dudley, who averages 7.9 ppg and shoots 42.1 percent from the 3-point line.
Brandon Knight, G2/8/2015 9:16:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 26 points during Saturday's win versus Boston.

Ersan Ilyasova, F2/7/2015 10:53:00 AM

Insight: Ilyasova played just 16 minutes and is considered questionable for Saturday due to soreness. He scored six points and had a rebound and assists, but shot a rusty 3-of-10. You should probably take a wait and see attitude here.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F2/6/2015 10:33:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo was very impressive during Friday's loss against Houston.
Insight: He shot 11-of-16 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line for 27 points, 15 boards, four assists, one block, and three turnovers. Antetokounmpo is a borderline top-100 option.
Ersan Ilyasova, F2/6/2015 1:33:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova has a sore right groin and is questionable for Friday's game against Houston.
Insight: Ilyasova's injury history has made him hard for fantasy owners to like. He appears to have peaked in 2011-12 when he averaged 13.0 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 1.2 apg. He's missed the past four games and is likely to make it five in a row.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F2/4/2015 10:51:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a team-high 25 points during Wednesday's overtime victory against the Lakers.
Insight: He shot 10-of-14 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line, and also had six rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks, and three turnovers.
John Henson, CHot2/4/2015 2:06:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson should be a viable fantasy option with much of the Bucks frontcourt injured.
Insight: Henson is a decent daily fantasy plug-in option with Ersan Ilyasova, Zaza Pachulia and Kenyon Martin all expected to sit.. Henson has posted double-digit points in four straight games and also pulled down 6.8 rpg over the same span.
Kenyon Martin, PF2/4/2015 2:05:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Kenyon Martin will not play on Wednesday versus the Lakers due to an ankle injury.
Insight: Martin has no fantasy value, but his injury, plus the ones to Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia should make John Henson (four straight double-digit points) a viable fantasy option once again.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F2/2/2015 10:00:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo had 12 points and 12 rebounds versus the Raptors on Monday.
Insight: This was Antetokounmpo's fifth double-double of the season. He was 4-of-9 from the field and 4-for-8 at the line.
Khris Middleton, F2/2/2015 9:56:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton took advantage of his playing time on Monday.
Insight: Middleton scored 25 minutes in 38 minutes. With Brandon Knight out with an injury and O.J. Mayo ejected in the first half, Middleton was forced to play major minutes. He also had nine rebounds, three steals and an assist. There's no need to rush to the waiver wire to pick Middleton up because he played 42 minutes on Saturday and scored just eight points. Middleton scored 21 points with five rebounds, three steals and two assists. Middleton is averaging 18.5 ppg and 6.0 rpg the last two games.
O.J. Mayo, G2/2/2015 8:38:00 PM
Description: Referees ejected Bucks guard O.J. Mayo on Monday for two technical fouls against the Raptors.
Insight: Mayo's timing couldn't be worse with Brandon Knight already out. Jerryd Bayless will probably play more than 30 minutes on Monday. Jared Dudley will play more too. Mayo exited with seven points, one rebound, one steal and a 3-pointer.
Brandon Knight, G2/2/2015 6:23:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight will not play versus the Raptors on Monday due to a quad injury.
Insight: Knight has missed time due to his quad over the last 12 months, but it is unclear how long he will be sidelined this time. Jerryd Bayless will play more without Knight in the lineup but is still not a great fantasy play.
John Henson, CHot2/2/2015 11:45:00 AM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson should start again on Mondday instead of Zaza Pachulia, who is suffering from a calf injury.
Insight: Henson is a decent daily fantasy plug-in option. He's posted double-digit points in three straight games and also pulled down 7.6 rpg over the same span.
Zaza Pachulia, C2/2/2015 11:43:00 AM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia is not expected to play Monday versus Toronto due to a calf injury.

Ersan Ilyasova, F2/2/2015 11:40:00 AM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova has a sore right groin and is doubtful for Monday's game against Toronto.
Insight: Ilyasova's injury history has made him hard for fantasy owners to like. He appears to have peaked in 2011-12 when he averaged 13.0 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 1.2 apg. He's missed the past two games and is likely to make it three in a row.
Jared Dudley, F1/29/2015 9:29:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley took full advantage of the opportunity to start on Thursday.
Insight: Dudley played since Ersan Ilyasova was out with a groin injury. Dudley was 6-of-10 from the field, hitting 3-for-6 from the 3-point line with four rebounds and two assists.
Jerryd Bayless, G1/29/2015 9:24:00 PM

John Henson, C1/29/2015 6:17:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson will start on Thursday instead of Zaza Pachulia, who is suffering from a calf injury.

Jared Dudley, F1/29/2015 6:15:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley will start at power forward on Thursday versus the Magic.
Insight: Fellow forward Ersan Ilyasova is out with a groin injury. Dudley is lethal from the 3-point line and is worth a look in daily leagues.
Zaza Pachulia, C1/29/2015 5:57:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia will not suit up for Thursday's game versus the Magic due to a calf injury.
Insight: Pachulia is questionable for Milwaukee's game on Saturday. John Henson will start at center for the Bucks versus the Magic and is a decent daily fantasy plug-in option.
Ersan Ilyasova, F1/29/2015 11:58:00 AM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova left Tuesday's game with a sore right groin and will not play Thursday, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer C.F. Gardner.

Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson injured an ankle in Sunday's game, but is probable for Tuesday's game against Miami.

Mayo is shooting 34.2 percent from the 3-point line this season, but he has been shooting an incredible 64.7 percent from deep range the last five games. That has really helped his fantasy value, but it is unlikely to continue.
Brandon Knight, G1/22/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 16 points during Thursday's loss against the Jazz.
Insight: Jared Dudley also scored 16 points. Knight went 6-of-16 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line, and also had five assists, two boards, one steal, one blovk, and zero turnovers.

Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo came off the bench to lead the team in scoring against the Knicks on Thursday.
Insight: Mayo was 8-of-14 shooting on his way to 22 points in 24 minutes. Mayo hit four 3-pointers, and is now 12-for-19 shooting 3-pointers in his last four games. Although he doesn't provide much else besides scoring, Mayo is an interesting add if an owner is in dire need of points and 3-pointers.
Brandon Knight, G1/15/2015 5:31:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight led all Milwaukee starters with 20 points in London's game on Thursday.

Kenyon Martin, PFCold1/15/2015 10:19:00 AM
Description: Bucks forward Kenyon Martin is averaging just seven minutes per game in his first two contests with Milwaukee.
Insight: Martin was just a stop gap measure and the return of Ersan Ilyasova may take even those few minutes away. He has no fantasy value.
Ersan Ilyasova, F1/15/2015 10:16:00 AM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova is expected to return tothe floor Thursday against the Knicks.
Insight: Ilyasova hasn't played since Dec. 23, according to coach Jason Kidd. "Ers looks good," When healthy this season he's averaging just 9.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 1.0 apg.

Kenyon Martin, PF1/9/2015 1:22:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Kenyon Martin is expected to be active for Friday's game.
Insight: Martin was just signed this morning. He'll back up Johnny O'Bryant who has been starting at the PF spot, but could see a decent amount of minutes while Ersan Ilyasova is sidelined.
Khris Middleton, F1/7/2015 9:25:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Khris Middleton was very efficient during Wednesday's victory against the 76ers.
Insight: He went 7-of-9 from the floor, 2-of-2 from the line, and 2-of-2 from beyond the arc for 18 points, three assists, three boards, and five steals. Middleton should be owned everywhere.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F1/6/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo posted a double-double during Tuesday's loss to the Suns.
Insight: It was his second consecutive double-double with 16 points and 12 boards. Antetokounmpo also had two assists, one block, and one turnover. He should be in all lineups.
Brandon Knight, G1/6/2015 10:28:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight continued his strong play on Tuesday night.
Insight: He went 10-of-20 from the floor and 4-of-4 from the line for a team-high 26 points. Knight also chipped in four assists, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, three steals, one block, and one turnover.

O.J. Mayo, G1/4/2015 12:43:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game due to illness.
Insight: Mayo missed the morning shootaround session. He's been a low-end value this season averaging 11.0 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 2.8 apg and 1.2 threes per contest. Jared Dudley would see a bump if Mayo can't run.
Brandon Knight, G1/2/2015 10:57:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 20 points in the loss to the Pacers on Friday.
Insight: Knight was 9-of-19 from the field, hitting two 3-pointers. He also had seven assists, four steals and two rebounds.

Zaza Pachulia, C1/2/2015 10:58:00 AM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia should continue to start for the foreseeable future.
Insight: Jason Kidd has stated that even when Larry Sanders is healthy he'll come off the bench behind Pachulia. Pachulia has averaged 12.3 ppg, 8.8 rpg in Sanders' absence the past four games.
Brandon Knight, G1/1/2015 1:05:00 PM

Insight: Knight scored 18 points to lead the team. He hit on 8-of-19 shots, including 2-of-5 from the 3-point line. He also had four rebounds, four assists and four steals. Hopefully, owners don't have Knight in leagues that count turnovers because he had eight of them on this otherwise stellar night.
Zaza Pachulia, CHot12/29/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia is expected to start Monday with Larry Sanders sidelined by illness.
Insight: Pachulia posted an 11-point, 15 rebound performance Saturday, and 14 and 8 on Friday night so obviously has fantasy value.
Larry Sanders, C12/29/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders has missed the past two games due to flu-like symptoms and will miss Monday's game against Charlotte too.
Insight: Zaza Pachulia would start and he's posted double-digit points the past two games, with 15 rebounds on Saturday.
Ersan Ilyasova, F12/29/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova will miss Monday's game against Charlotte.
Insight: Ilyasova can't seem to stay healthy as he is now suffering from a concussion. He missed 21 games last season due to a concussion. Even when healthy he's averaging just 9.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 1.0 apg.
Khris Middleton, F12/27/2014 11:06:00 PM
Description: The Bucks go-to guy on offense continues to change on a nightly basis and on Saturday, it was Khris Middleton.
Insight: Middleton scored 21 points off the bench to lead Milwaukee in scoring. No reason to run to the waiver wire to pick him up, however, as he made 5-of-8 from the 3-point line, a feat not likely to be repeated. Middleton is a 39.1 3-pointer shooter this season and is averaging 9.3 ppg.
Larry Sanders, C12/27/2014 10:39:00 AM
Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders was out on Friday due to the flu and is questionable for Saturday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Zaza Pachulia would start against his old team and along with Johnny O'Bryant would play most of the minutes.
Brandon Knight, G12/26/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight led all Milwaukee starters with 16 points on Friday.
Insight: Knight was 5-for-11 with two 3-pointers versus the Hawks. Knight was also 4-for-4 at the line and had five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.
Jared Dudley, F12/26/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley scored in double figures for the fourth straight game on Friday, leading the team with 24 points.
Insight: Dudley's sudden scoring burst can mostly be credited to his great 3-point shooting. Over the last four games, he is 10-for-16 from behind the arc. On Friday, Dudley was a perfect 10-for-10 from the field. He is playing a decent amount of minutes, but fantasy owners will have to count on his hot shooting continuing to make him a player worth starting.
Larry Sanders, C12/26/2014 1:32:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders is out on Friday due to the flu.
Insight: Sanders is out along with Ersan Ilyasova, so the Bucks are pretty thin in the front court. Zaza Pachulia and JOhnny O'Bryant will play most of the minutes along with John Henson.
Ersan Ilyasova, F12/26/2014 1:31:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova is out on Friday against the Hawks.
Insight: Ilyasova can't seem to stay healthy as he is now suffering from a concussion. He missed 21 games last season due to a concussion, so fantasy owners should be concerned.
Brandon Knight, G12/23/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a season-high 34 points on Tuesday.
Insight: Someone has to take the reigns Jabari Parker is leaving behind because of his injury, and Knight is a guy who could. He certainly did on Tuesday, shooting 13-of-21 and hitting 4-of-7 3-pointers. Knight also had five assists, two rebounds and a steal.
Jared Dudley, F12/21/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Bucks forward Jared Dudley had a solid game off the bench during Saturday's loss against the Clippers.
Insight: He was 7-of-12 from the field for 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, and three turnovers. Leave Dudley on the waiver wire.

Jerryd Bayless, G12/19/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Bucks backup shooting guard Jerryd Bayless was very good off the bench Thursday night.
Insight: Bayless totaled 17 points with four rebounds, five assists and a block in his best game this season. Hopefully he's earned more time because he can fill a box score better than O.J. Mayo or Jared Dudley.
O.J. Mayo, G12/19/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo got off to a hot start and we thought we would see a big night, but he quickly cooled off.
Insight: Mayo racked up 17 first quarter points but finished with 19 in 23 minutes. Mayo doesn't provide much besides scoring so his fantasy value is a bit limited.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F12/18/2014 9:10:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo will start on Thursday versus the Kings.
Insight: Antetokounmpo was playing very well Wednesday before his injury, so the fact he is out there should give owners enough confidence to start him.
Larry Sanders, C12/18/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders will not play Thursday due to a suspension.
Insight: Sanders received his suspension for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back as he went up for a lay up. Zaza Pachulia is the best plug-in option while Sanders is out.
John Henson, C12/18/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson was targeting a Dec. 15 return date from his foot injury, but didn't play and we have no updates.

Ersan Ilyasova, F12/18/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova was originally hoping to return to the court on Dec. 13, but didn't go on the road trip with the team and now is shooting for Dec. 23 versus Charlotte.
Insight: Ilyasova suffered a broken nose/mild concussion on Dec. 2. He's averaging 10.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 0.9 apg this season so has limited value even when healthy.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F12/18/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo is doubtful for Thursday's game against Sacramento due to a sprained left ankle.
Insight: Antetokounmpo is averaging 12.2 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 1.8 apg and is a 30-plus minute a night guy when healthy.

Description: Bucks small forward Jabari Parker has suffered a torn ACL, according to Espn's Marc Stein.

Jabari Parker, F12/16/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: Bucks small forward Jabari Parker suffered a non-contact knee injury against the Suns on Monday.
Insight: X-rays were negative, but we still don't have a clear timetable for his return from what is being called a sprained knee. Khris Middleton and Ersan Ilyasova should see additional minutes.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F12/13/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 72 percent from the floor to help lift the Bucks over the Clippers, 111-106, on Saturday.

Ersan Ilyasova, F12/8/2014 2:18:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova is hoping to return to the court on Dec. 13.
Insight: Ilyasova suffered a broken nose/mild concussion on Dec. 2. He's averaging 10.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 0.9 apg this season so has limited value even when healthy.
John Henson, C12/8/2014 2:14:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson is targeting a Dec. 15 return date from his foot injury.
Insight: Even when healthy, Henson hasn't been getting the minutes needed to help fantasy owners. He's averaging 4.2 ppg, 2.7 rpg in under 20 minutes per night. Starter Jabari Parker is averaging about 30 minutes a night.
Kendall Marshall, PG12/6/2014 8:45:00 AM
Description: Bucks point guard Kendall Marshall came off the bench and led Milwaukee with 20 points in the, 109-85, victory over the Heat on Friday.
Insight: Marshall was on fire, hitting on 7-of-8 shots, including going 4-for-5 behind the arc. It is always worth keeping an eye on players like this to add but considering Marshall is averaging 4.6 ppg and shooting 48.6 percent on the season as opposed to the 87.5 percent he shot Friday, a repeat performance is unlikely.
Larry Sanders, C12/5/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: Scratch our last update as Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders will play on Friday.
Insight: Milwaukee continues to rule players out only to then put them into the lineup. Sanders should be in all fantasy lineups because of the friendly matchup against the Heat.
Larry Sanders, C12/5/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders will not play on Friday due to an illness.
Insight: It's too bad because Sanders had a friendly matchup against the Heat Friday. Zaza Pachulia is a decent plug-in option for daily leagues as he will take Sanders' spot.
Brandon Knight, G12/2/2014 9:37:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 27 points in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers.
Insight: Knight shot 10-of-18 from the field, 2-of-2 from the line, and 5-of-9 from beyond the arc. He also chipped in eight assists, six rebounds, three steals, and three turnovers. Knight is a top-50 player.

Description: Bucks small forward Jabari Parker played very well in Tuesday's loss to Cleveland.
Insight: He shot 11-of-15 from the field for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, and three turnovers. Parker continues to be and up and, which should be expected.
Ersan Ilyasova, F12/2/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova has played well off the bench the past two games, but the return of Zaza Pachulia will likely eat into those minutes.
Insight: Ilyasova averaged 27.5 mpg over the past two contests, averaging 20 ppg, 5.0 rpg, but is likely to return to his season-long 19 mpg. beware of overvaluing the past two games because the circumstances have changed.
Zaza Pachulia, C12/2/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia is expected to return from missing two games to attend to a family matter.
Insight: Pachulia doesn't have fantasy value, but his return will eat into Ersan Ilyasova's time and he was playing well and getting close to 30 minutes of court time without Pachulia.
Jabari Parker, F11/30/2014 10:47:00 AM
Description: Bucks small forward Jabari Parker continued his up-and-down season Saturday, scoring 19 points and grabbing nine rebounds.
Insight: Parker has not been able to string together several great games in a row. His best stretch in November came in a four-game span where Parkers scored at least 12 points every game. But in five of the 16 games this month, Parker has failed to score 10 points.
Ersan Ilyasova, F11/28/2014 10:47:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova scored a team-high 22 points in the, 104-88, victory over the Pistons on Friday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F11/23/2014 11:13:00 AM

Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field and 8-of-8 from the stripe for 20 points. Antetokounmpo also had five assists, four rebounds, three steals, and two turnovers. Now that he is back in the starting lineup, owners need to start him with confidence.

Insight: He was 10-of-18 from the floor, 4-of-5 from the line, and 3-of-5 from deep. Knight also chipped in six assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block, and five turnovers. Owners will deal with the turnovers if he continues to produce numbers like these.

Description: Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 7-of-11 to help the Bucks beat the Nets, 122-118, in triple overtime on Wednesday.
Insight: Despite it being an early regular season game, it had extra meaning for coach Jason Kidd to defeat his old team. Brandon Knight could have won the game with a layup at the end of the first overtime, but he missed the wide open shot. Antetokounmpo had 18 points and 12 rebounds.
Jabari Parker, F11/19/2014 10:55:00 PM
Description: Bucks small forward Jabari Parker scored a team-high 23 points to lead the Bucks over the Nets, 122-118, in triple overtime.
Insight: Parker shot 8-of-13 from the field and 7-for-10 at the line. He also had seven rebounds. His numbers might have been a little inflated with the three overtimes, but fantasy owners love the efficiency. That's the most points Parker has scored in his young NBA career.
Larry Sanders, C11/19/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center Larry Sanders is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets. UPDATE: Sanders is playing Wednesday night.
Insight: The Bucks scratched Sanders late on Tuesday and will likely do the same on Wednesday. Zaza Paculia will likely get the spot start and is a decent fantasy plug-in for Wednesday.
Ersan Ilyasova, F11/18/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova scored a team-high 20 points during Tuesday's win over the Knicks.
Insight: He was 8-of-10 from the floor and 3-of-4 from downtown. However, owners should leave Ilyasova on waivers for the time being.
Zaza Pachulia, C11/18/2014 10:36:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia played well in a spot start.
Insight: Larry Sanders was a late scratch and Pachulia delivered with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Owners, should expect him to come back down to Earth, once Sanders returns.
Khris Middleton, F11/16/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks small forward Khris Middleton (sore right knee) hasn't played the last two games and is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami.

Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight had a nice night in Friday's loss to the Magic.
Insight: He had 24 points, six rebounds, five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, and three turnovers. Knight has been filling stat sheets for fantasy owners, and there is no reason to believe that won't continue.

Description: Bucks small forward Khris Middleton (sore right knee) is questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Middleton is averaging 9.7 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 1.5 apg which isn't fantasy worthy.
Jabari Parker, F11/12/2014 10:51:00 AM
Description: Bucks coach Jason Kidd benched forward Jabari Parker in the fourth quarter against the Thunder on Tuesday.
Insight: It was the second straight game Parker rode the bench down the stretch in the fourth quarter. That is a huge concern for fantasy owners, who likely took Parker as the No. 1 rookie in this year's draft. The rookie finished with just six points, four rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes. Despite that, owners need to show patience. This 19-year-old has played just eight games at the NBA level.
Brandon Knight, G11/11/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight led all Milwaukee starters with 16 points on Tuesday.

Insight: He had 14 points, six assists, three rebounds, but also six turnovers. Knight is now averaging 17.6 ppg, 7.3 apg, 6.4 rpg, and 1.43 spg, which should please fantasy owners.
Jabari Parker, F11/8/2014 11:04:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jabari Parker shot well from the field, but needs to contribute in other categories moving forward.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 for 13 points, but had only four rebounds, one assist, and one block. There will be some growing pains for Parker all season long.
Jabari Parker, F11/7/2014 10:27:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Jabari Parker played likely the best game of his career on Friday against the Pistons.
Insight: Parker scored 18 points, shooting 8-for-14 from the field. He also had five rebounds and three steals. Parker did turn the ball over four times, but that won't matter in standard leagues.
Brandon Knight, G11/5/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight was the only starter in double figures on Wednesday.
Insight: Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo scored double-figure points off the bench, but Knight led the starters with 10 points. He also had nine rebounds, seven assists and five steals. With the lack of skill on the Milwaukee roster, Knight will continue to do a little bit of everything this season.
Brandon Knight, G11/4/2014 9:25:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight led Milwaukee to their second win of the season.
Insight: He was 10-for-16 from the field for 23 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, two 3-pointers, and four turnovers. Knight has had a nice start to the season.
Brandon Knight, G11/1/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight shot 9-for-15, including 3-for-4 from the 3-point line in Saturday's loss to the Wizards.
Insight: Knight scored 24 points as Milwaukee lost, 108-97. He also had five rebounds, six assists and one steal.
Jabari Parker, F11/1/2014 9:04:00 AM
Description: Bucks forward Jabari Parker posted his first-career double-double.
Insight: He had 11 points and 10 rebounds, along with a steal and one 3-pointer. Parker will have some growing pains early on.
Brandon Knight, G10/29/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight almost posted a triple-double on Wednesday night against the Hornets.
Insight: He shot terribly (5-of-17), but had 22 points, 13 assists, eight rebounds, and was 10-of-10 from the line. Knight did turn the ball over four times, but if he produces numbers like that, the turnovers should not be an issue to fantasy owners.
Jabari Parker, F10/29/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: Bucks rookie Jabari Parker did not do much in his NBA debut.
Insight: He shot 3-of-9 from the field, for eight points, and had four rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Owners should expect growing pains, especially early on, but it is nice to know he played 37 minutes on Wednesday night.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F10/28/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo may start at small forward in the season opener.
Insight: We don't normally like to write notes with "may" in them, but this just proves Jason Kidd is again lost as a head coach. A day before the season opener, he has admitted he doesn't know who is starting. The Greek freak could start at guard or small forward. If he plays at SF, then Jabari Parker will start at power forward.
Brandon Knight, G10/24/2014 1:48:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight is questionable for Wednesday's game against Charlotte due to a strained right groin.
Insight: Knight averaged 17.9 ppg and 4.9 apg, but new coach Jason Kidd has mentioned Giannis Antetokounmpo playing some minutes at point guard and rookie Jabari Parker should take away shot attempts from Knight.
Ersan Ilyasova, F10/23/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova played in just 55 games last season, but in a 15-game stretch after the All-Star break, he averaged 14.1 PPG and 7.0 RPG.
Insight: The question is whether he can get back to that form, especially with less volume of work. Rookie Jabari Parker will lead the team in shots, so Ilyasova might not have as many opportunities.
John Henson, C10/23/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Bucks center John Henson showcased a lot of skill last season and has upside going into 2014-2015.
Insight: Henson averaged 15.2 PPG, 10.1 RPG and 2.3 BPG in 12 December games last season. He, however, couldn't continue that pace, and he might not have the chance to do so again with Jabari Parker, Ersan Ilyasova and Larry Sanders in the front court. Still, Ilyasova and Sanders are injury prone, so Henson has fantasy worth.
Larry Sanders, C10/23/2014 7:11:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward/center is a double-double threat every night, but in the words of the great Charles Barkley, he is also a knucklehead.
Insight: Sanders missed a large portion of last season after breaking his thumb in a bar fight. Then he missed the end of the year after he broke his orbital bone when James Harden elbowed him in the face. Sanders will also miss the first five games of this season due to a drug suspension. When on the court though, he averaged 12.0 PPG and 11.1 RPG before the All-Star break in 2012-2013.
Jabari Parker, F10/23/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Bucks rookie Jabari Parker should be the first rookie off the draft board.
Insight: Parker is getting comparisons to Carmelo Anthony. He is a versatile forward who can score, rebound and shoot a high percentage. Parker has tremendous size, 6-foot-8, 241 pounds, and skill. On the bad Milwaukee Bucks, Parker will make an immediate impact.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F10/23/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo can play any spot on the floor.
Insight: With his ball skills and at 6-foot-11 and 217 pounds, Jason Kidd could use him anywhere. He worked at shooting guard and small forward last season, but Kidd has been testing him out, with very little success, at point guard. Hopefully, Kidd defines his role by the start of the season. The Greek is a potential sleeper.
Brandon Knight, G10/23/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight will not be able to repeat his production from last season.
Insight: Knight averaged 17.9 PPG and 4.9 APG while shooting 42 percent from the floor last season, but new coach Jason Kidd has mentioned Giannis Antetokounmpo playing some minutes at point guard and rookie Jabari Parker will take away shot attempts from Knight. Without 15.2 FGA per game, Knight will not come close to averaging 18 points, and his assist numbers aren't likely to rise.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F7/16/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: The Bucks have been experimenting with Giannis Antetokounmpo at point guard in the Summer League and are seriously considering starting him there during the regular season. SOURCE: nba.com
Insight: If Milwaukee chooses to go that route, who better to guide the Greek Freak than new coach Jason Kidd? Even if he's kept at shooting guard, the 19-year-old Antetokounmpo is a big part of Milwaukee's future plans and should be used way more in 2014-15 after averaging 24.6 minutes per game as a rookie.
Jabari Parker, F6/26/2014 8:50:00 PM
Description: The Bucks got their man in Duke forward Jabari Parker.
Insight: They took him with the second pick. Parker (19.3 ppg, 8.8 rpg in his only year at Duke) has been touted as the most "NBA-ready" player in this year's draft. He's already drawn comparisons to Paul Pierce and Carmelo Anthony. Don't be surprised if the Chicago native wins Rookie of the Year in 2015.
Jeff Adrien, FHot4/14/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF Jeff Adrien had 19 points and nine rebounds in 40 minutes Monday at Toronto.
Insight: Adrien has averaged 15.2 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over his last eight games. The undrafted big man was a throw-in in the deadline trade that sent Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal to Charlotte for Ramon Sessions, but for some reason Milwaukee has played him 33+ mpg instead of giving more minutes to 2012 first-round pick John Henson.
Khris Middleton, FHot4/14/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Bucks small forward Khris Middleton has averaged 17.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.0 threes over his last five games.
Insight: The Bucks have been playing Middleton way more minutes than he should be getting over the past month in an attempt to lock down the worst record in the NBA. They clinched it Monday with a loss to the Raptors.
Brandon Knight, G4/14/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight, a late scratch Saturday, made it through the shootaround and is expected to play against Toronto, according to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Knight (17.7 ppg, 4.9 apg, 3.5 rpg) and Ramon Sessions (12.3 ppg, 4.1 apg) should eat up most of the guard minutes.
Brandon Knight, G4/12/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Brandon Knight was a late scratch Saturday against the Wizards. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Insight: It's been frustrating to own Bucks players this season because the team has a habit of reporting injuries at the last possible minute. Either way, Ramon Sessions (12.2 ppg, 4.0 apg) will get the start at point guard while Knight (17.7 ppg, 4.9 apg, 3.5 rpg) sits out with a hip injury.
Zaza Pachulia, C4/11/2014 11:07:00 PM
Description: Bucks center Zaza Pachulia had 16 points, eight rebounds and four assists Friday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Pachulia scored at least 12 points in four of the past six games and grabbed eight or more rebounds in five of them.
Ramon Sessions, GHot4/11/2014 11:05:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Ramon Sessions has averaged 19 points, 6.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in nine games since he became the starting shooting guard.
Insight: Sessions had 20 points, seven assists and three rebounds in 43 minutes Friday against he Cavaliers.
O.J. Mayo, G4/11/2014 1:48:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo (ankle) missed Wednesday's game and is doubtful for Friday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Mayo has played just 11 games since Jan. 26 and none since March 24.
Larry Sanders, C4/9/2014 9:13:00 PM
Description: The Bucks activated PF/C Larry Sanders Wednesday so he could begin serving his five-game suspension. SOURCE: Bucks on Twitter
Insight: Sanders, who is done for the year with a facial fracture, was suspended for testing positive for marijuana. He'll get his suspension out of the way and be ready to go at the start of next season.
O.J. Mayo, G4/9/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard O.J. Mayo (ankle) will miss Wednesday's game.
Insight: Mayo has played just 11 games since Jan. 26 and none since March 24.
John Henson, C4/6/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Bucks center John Henson put up 23 points, nine rebounds, six assists, three blocks and one steal in 39 minutes Saturday against Toronto.
Insight: Henson hadn't played that many minutes since Feb. 8 and he only saw that many because Zaza Pachulia picked up four personal fouls in nine minutes. For some reason, the Bucks have been reluctant to turn Henson loose (probably because they are trying to lose every game at this point), even with Ersan Ilyasova and Larry Sanders done for the season . Henson has averaged just 23.9 minutes per game over his last 24 games.
Jeff Adrien, FHot4/5/2014 11:05:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF Jeff Adrien had 19 points, 12 rebounds and one block in 41 minutes Saturday.
Insight: Adrien has averaged 17.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks his last four games and 10.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 23 games with Milwaukee.
O.J. Mayo, G4/5/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: As expected, Bucks guard O.J. Mayo will not play Saturday, according to Andrew Gruman of foxsportswisconsin.com.
Insight: It's the sixth straight game he's missed with a sprained ankle. The guard has appeared in just 11 games since Jan. 26.
Larry Sanders, C4/4/2014 8:44:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee PF/C Larry Sanders was given a five-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: He tested positive for marijuana. Sanders, who is already out with a facial fracture, will serve his suspension at the start of next season.
O.J. Mayo, G4/4/2014 8:02:00 PM
Description: As expected, Bucks guard O.J. Mayo won't compete Friday against the Bulls. SOURCE: Charles Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: It's the fifth game he's missed with a sprained ankle. Mayo's 11.7 ppg scoring average is his lowest since 2011 (11.3 ppg in 71 games for Memphis).
O.J. Mayo, G4/4/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee shooting guard O.J. Mayo (ankle) did not play Wednesday against the Heat and is expected to miss Friday's game against Chicago.
Insight: Mayo (11.7 ppg) rolled an ankle a week ago and hasn't returned to action. He has played more than 20 minutes just one time since March 3, so should be dropped in all leagues.
O.J. Mayo, G4/2/2014 6:57:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee shooting guard O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Heat.
Insight: Mayo (11.7 ppg) rolled an ankle a week ago and hasn't returned to action. He has played more than 20 minutes just one time since March 3.
O.J. Mayo, G4/2/2014 2:58:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee shooting guard O.J. Mayo (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Miami.
Insight: Mayo (11.7 ppg) rolled an ankle a week ago and may serve as an emergency player, but is unlikely to see game action. He has played more than 20 minutes just one time since March 3.
Ramon Sessions, GHot3/31/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Ramon Sessions had 20 points, 11 assists and five rebounds in 44 minutes Monday at Detroit.
Insight: Sessions has thrived in four games since he took over the starting job, averaging 21.3 points, 6.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds. He has put up 15.6 ppg in 20 games since the Bobcats dealt him to the Bucks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F3/31/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo had 14 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes Monday at Detroit.
Insight: The 19-year-old Antetokounmpo has been too inconsistent to use in fantasy leagues.
O.J. Mayo, G3/31/2014 7:10:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee shooting guard O.J. Mayo (ankle) will dress for Monday's game against the Pistons but isn't expected to play, according to Dave Pemberton of the Oakland Press.
Insight: Mayo (11.7 ppg) rolled an ankle last Monday, missed the last two games and will serve as an emergency player Monday. He was out of the rotation for most of March and has played just seven games during the month.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, G/F3/28/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered a right ankle sprain Thursday night and is questionable for Saturday's game against Miami
Insight: Antetokounmpo claims its the first one he every suffered. he hasn't been performing at a fantasy worthy level of late, but his absence would help Brandon Knight and Ramon Sessions' values.
