Monroe turned in his eighth double-double of the season and equaled his career high in steals, making it the 19th time the 26-year-old center has recorded four swipes. Though Monroe is earning a career low in minutes and rebounds per game, he is matching his career-best average in steals with 1.3 per night. Furthermore, things have been looking up lately, as Monroe has posted 15.8 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.4 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 30.6 minutes during the last five games.
Monroe put up 19 points (6-11 FG, 7-10 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 27 minutes Friday during a 116-111 loss to the Knicks.
After falling hard out of coach Jason Kidd's rotation earlier in the season, Monroe has bounced back with a vengeance and carved out a solid spot as Milwaukee's go-to bench scorer. Monroe has now scored 15-plus points in four straight games, and tallied at least 27 minutes in each of those games. He's back to bullying bigs around the rim with his powerful frame and soft touch. If any fantasy owners in deeper leagues are in need of a minor scoring punch, Monroe would be a decent gamble.
Monroe recorded 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-10 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 31 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 105-104 win over the Knicks.
Monroe has provided an occasionally potent scoring punch off the bench for the Bucks this season, but never more so than tonight. His 18 points were a season high and could have been higher had he not struggled from the free throw line. At 26.6 minutes per game over his last five, Monroe's workload is trending up and the big man is taking advantage. He's averaging 14 points on 58.5 percent from the field in that span.
Monroe recorded 14 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block across 27 minutes off the bench in a 119-94 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.
Monroe has had a very productive run over his last three games, averaging 14 points on 70.4 percent from the field in over 23 minutes per game. Still, somewhat inconsistent minutes and even more inconsistent play leaves Monroe on the fringes of fantasy relevance for the time being.
Monroe compiled 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two steals across 23 minutes in Friday's 114-110 loss to the Hawks.
Monroe had dropped to third on the depth chart at center and even didn't play in a Nov. 17 game in a coach's decision, but his role has since seemed to stabilize as the main backup to starter John Henson. While Monroe is still delivering the worst numbers of his career, his averages of 10.9 points (on 55.4% shooting), 7.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.6 steals in 21.3 minutes per game are good enough for him to yield value for deep-league owners. Monroe would undoubtedly benefit from a trade to a center-needy team, but there's been little momentum made by the Bucks on that front.
