Bledsoe (knee) is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's game versus Boston. Bledsoe went through a full contact practice Wednesday, and the team heavily implied that he would play, so his removal from the injury report is in line with what we expected. Bledsoe should step back into the starting lineup at his usual point guard spot.
Bledsoe (knee) is expected to return for Thursday's game against Boston, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports. Bledsoe missed Monday's game against Denver with a sore knee, but he was able to put in a full practice Wednesday and should be back in the starting lineup Thursday night.
Bledsoe (knee) is out for Monday's game against Denver, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Bledsoe was considered doubtful for Monday's clash, so this development isn't a surprise. Pat Connaughton will draw the start at point guard Monday as the Bucks elect to shake things up.
Bledsoe (knee) is listed as doubtful on the Bucks' injury report ahead of Monday's matchup against Denver. Bledsoe is apparently dealing with some swelling in his right knee, so the team is leaning toward holding him out on the second night of a back-to-back. With George Hill (leg) already ruled out, Donte DiVincenzo could be in line for more playmaking duties.
Bledsoe accumulated 28 points (12-19 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-5 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Suns. While Bledsoe's fantasy value is still inside the top 80, he's had some struggles recently, falling out of the top 150 in nine-categoyr formats over his last eight games due to some poor shooting performances - from both the field and the line. A lot of his struggles came during a three-game stretch that saw the 30-year old average just 6.0 points on 39.4 percent shooting. However, the two games following that rough patch were better, as Bledsoe put up 13.5 points, 5.0 dimes, 4.5 boards and 1.5 steals, while shooting 47.1 percent. He added to that momentum in this one, shooting 63.2 percent from the field on his way to 28 points in the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee). The Bucks will need Bledsoe to maintain a competent level of production down the stretch if they expect to protect their number-one seed from the Raptors, who are still eight games back.
