Teletovic (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Tuesday's 118-101 loss to the Cavaliers.

Fellow reserve Michael Beasley (17 points in 26 minutes) was running hot in the second quarter, so coach Jason Kidd ended up sticking with him throughout the evening at the expense of Teletovic, who had played in each of the Bucks' previous 15 games. Considering that Teletovic is one of the team's top three-point shooters and had seen between 12 and 15 minutes in each of the past five games, it seems likely that his removal from the rotation was just a one-time occurrence. That said, it illustrates that Teletovic isn't an indispensable player for the Bucks, and those who own him in deep leagues shouldn't treat him as such either if there's an appealing option out there on the waiver wire.
