Ennis averaged 4.5 points, 2.1 assists, 1.6 rebounds, and 0.5 steals in 14 minutes per game through 46 games. Ennis showed progress in his second season, as he saw more time on the court due to injuries suffered by Michael Carter-Williams and Jerryd Bayless throughout the season. The 21-year-old shined most at the end of the season, as he averaged over 23 minutes a contest since March 9. Ennis is under contract for the next three seasons and could climb the depth chart next year with Bayless slated to be a free agent.
Ennis scored nine points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 11 assists, six rebounds, and two steals in 38 minutes during the Bucks' 124-109 loss to the Celtics on Friday. Ennis could certainly be more efficient as a scorer, but he continues to showcase his skills as a distributor late in his sophomore season. During the first four games of April, he is averaging 8.8 points, 5.5 assists to 2.8 turnovers, four rebounds, and two steals in 30 minutes per matchup. While Giannis Antetokounmpo is the lead playmaker without question, the absence of Khris Middleton (thigh) among others has forced Ennis to step up here down the stretch. If Ennis continues to see heavy minutes on Sunday versus the lowly 76ers, he will likely make for a solid option in daily leagues.
Ennis had 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 26 minutes during the Bucks' 113-110 win over the Magic on Friday. Ennis was excellent on Friday, scoring a career-high 15 points while matching his career highs in steals, made free-throws, and three-pointers. Jerryd Bayless (knee) sat out, Greivis Vasquez is on a minutes restriction, and Michael Carter-Williams (knee) and O.J. Mayo (ankle) are out for the season. As a result, Ennis could be in line to earn decent time over the final six games. Over the last five, he is averaging 9.2 points, three assists to 1.4 turnovers, and 2.8 rebounds in 21 minutes per appearance.
Ennis managed nine points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 12 assists, four rebounds and a steal over 28 minutes in Saturday's 115-91 loss to the Hornets. The second-year Syracuse product was outstanding with his ball distribution on the night, with the 12 dimes serving as a career high. Ennis has generally been effective in his modest playing time off the bench, although the 28 minutes he received Saturday equaled his highest of the season. The dynamic point guard could offer some sneaky value in very deep season-long formats, and as a near-minimum priced play in daily leagues over the final stretch of the season.
Ennis tallied 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal over 23 minutes in Thursday's 96-86 victory over the Grizzlies. The second-year guard, who'd languished on the bench for the majority of the season, has finally started to see the court for appreciable lengths of time following Michael Carter-Williams' season-ending hip injury. Thursday marked the second straight game with over 20 minutes of playing time for Ennis, as well as his third double-digit scoring effort in the last four contests. He's made solid contributions in other categories as well over that span, totaling 12 rebounds and eight assists during that stretch of games. Ennis figures to receive minutes in the high teens on average over the balance of the regular season as part of the point guard rotation.
