    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Coming off bench again Thursday

    Carter-Williams will come off the bench again Thursday against Washington, CF Gardner of the Journal Sentinel reports. Coach Jason Kidd made the surprising move to bring both Carter-Williams and Greg Monroe off the bench Tuesday against the Celtics, and both players responded well in the victory, with Carter-Williams putting up 16 points, six rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes. Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Kidd confirmed that he'll stick with the same starting five Thursday, meaning O.J. Mayo and Miles Plumlee will start at point guard and center, respectively. Kidd has not provided a real reason for the decision to switch up the lineup, but it appears as though the minutes loads of Monroe and Carter-Williams will remain relatively constant, regardless of whether or not they begin the game on the bench.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Efficient off bench in victory Tuesday

    Carter-Williams scored 16 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go with six rebounds, five assists, and a steal over 26 minutes in a 112-111 victory over the Celtics on Tuesday. Carter-Williams posted an excellent stat line in a reserve role, scoring 16 or more points for just the second time since Jan. 26. While Carter-Williams was slated to receive a reduction in court time, his starting lineup replacement -- O.J. Mayo -- made little use of his spot start, going scoreless over 18 minutes. MCW has regressed in several categories this season, but seems unlikely to cede minutes to the likes of Mayo or Rashad Vaughn.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Heads to bench against Celtics

    Carter-Williams will come off the bench Tuesday against the Celtics, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports Carter-Williams will play second fiddle to O.J. Mayo on Tuesday, although there's no guarantee this dynamic will have lasting power since coach Jason Kidd is also choosing to start Miles Plumlee over Greg Monroe at center. Despite the demotion, Carter-Williams could still realistically see his average of 31 minutes per game against Boston while coming off the bench.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Posts 18 points, 13 assists Monday

    Carter-Williams contributed 18 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 assists, five rebounds, one steal, and one block in 34 minutes during the Bucks' 111-104 loss to the Kings on Monday. MCW made six of his eight shot attempts, and dished 13 assists while committing just three turnovers. Nevertheless, the Kings' defense typically finds ways to make the opponents' offenses look good. This was his sixth double-double of the season, and it was already his fourth in 2016. Though his numbers were a bit stronger in December than January, MCW is still managing to post fairly well-rounded stat-lines--albeit without consistently making threes or blocking shots.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Pitches in 10 points in Thursday loss

    Carter-Williams pitched in with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and an assist over 27 minutes in Thursday's 103-83 loss to the Grizzlies. The three-year pro posted under 10 shot attempts for the second straight game, resulting in another modest scoring total. Carter-Williams seems to alternate between serving as a ball distributor and scorer from game-to-game, making it dificult to get a read on him fantasy-wise. He now has six single-digit scoring performances and eight double-digit point tallies in January, along with three double-doubles. He's predictably put up single-digit attempts in all of the contests where he's managed under 10 points, while the opposite has been true in all but one game in which he's managed double-digit scoring. Carter-Williams' January scoring average is also down three full points from his 13.8 December figure.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Scores 19 in Saturday's loss

    Carter-Williams scored 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding five assists, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Pelicans. It was a rare good shooting night for MCW, who's shot better than 40 percent from the floor just twice in his last eight games. His offensive inconsistency will sometimes cost him court time as the Bucks turn to Jerryd Bayless to put a steadier hand on the wheel, but Carter-Williams' numbers on the defensive end (2.3 steals and 0.9 blocks a game in January) still give him solid fantasy value if you can take the hit to your field goal percentage.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Loses out on court time to Bayless on Tuesday

    Carter-Williams contributed seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and two steals across 25 minutes in Monday's 91-79 win over the Heat. Carter-Williams has seen his playing time dip below 30 minutes the last two games with Jerryd Bayless (ankle) returning to action. Bayless (30 minutes) actually ended up surpassing Carter-Williams in court time Monday night, and while that may not often be the case so long as Carter-Williams holds down the starting job at point guard, the minutes should be relatively evenly distributed between the duo. If that's indeed the case over the next several games, Carter-Williams would likely be in line for a substantial dip in his counting stats.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Teases triple-double in Friday's win

    Carter-Williams scored 15 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding a season-high 12 rebounds, eight assists, five steals and a block in 41 minutes during Friday's win over the Mavericks. He's been putting up numbers reminiscent of his Sixers peak lately, when he was a nightly triple-double threat, and MCW is averaging 14.3 points, 8.2 assists, 7.0 boards, 2.5 steals and 1.3 blocks over the last six games. There's no telling how long Carter-Williams will remain locked in, so enjoy the hot streak while it lasts.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Continues recent tear with 20-12 showing

    Carter-Williams scored 20 points (9-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and added 12 assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 37 minutes during the Bucks' 117-106 loss to the Bulls on Tuesday. Carter-Williams continued his high-level play on Tuesday, and even his jump-shot looks slightly improved lately. It was MCW's third double-double of the season, and the 12 assists represents his season-high for 2015-16.

    Bucks' Michael Carter-Williams: Delivers another well-rounded effort Monday

    Carter-Williams contributed 16 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during the Bucks' 123-98 loss versus the Spurs on Monday. Carter-Williams has been great of late, posting 11.8 points (47.9 FG, 66.7 3Pt, 50.0 FT), 6.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks in 31 minutes per contest over the last five games. He has only taken three shots from beyond the arc during that time, and should not be expected to suddenly start making threes all that often. However, he has only committed 1.8 turnovers per game during that same five-game span, and MCW is playing his best basketball of the season during the most recent weeks. Furthermore, Jerryd Bayless re-injured his ankle on Monday versus the Spurs and did not return.
