Snell totaled 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), one rebound and one steal during Thursday's 134-123 loss to Denver. This was Snell's first game scoring in double figures since his outing back on Jan. 29, a span of seven games. The former New Mexico standout continues to struggle mightily from the floor, shooting just 23.3 percent in his last six games. In addition, Snell has not significantly contributed to any other statistical category aside from scoring this season, as his season averages of 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game indicates.
Snell provided two points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two blocks across 30 minutes in Friday's 91-85 loss to the Heat. Snell and John Henson were tied for the fewest shot attempts among the starting five, and Friday's two points are the only ones the former has tallied over the last three contests. The 26-year-old has gone 0-for-9 over that stretch, and he's drained just 16.0 percent of his 25 attempts in five February games. Given the high-usage profiles of teammates Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton -- as well as Henson's increased offensive role this season -- Snell's overall fantasy prospects remain rather muted.
Snell mustered just two points (1-9 FG, 0-6 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes in Thursday's 108-89 loss to the Timberwolves. It was a particularly disappointing effort for Snell, considering that Eric Bledsoe (ankle) was sidelined and Malcolm Brogdon was forced from the game in the second quarter with a quadriceps tendon injury. Snell's unsightly 11.1 percent success rate from the field was his worst since he came up empty on four attempts against the Raptors on Jan. 5, and he's now generated single-digit point totals in four of the last five contests. While the five-year veteran is certain capable of a double-digit scoring tally on any given night, Brogdon is clearly much more efficient on a per-minute basis.
Snell will draw the start Thursday against the Timberwolves, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. Snell moves into the starting lineup for Eric Bledsoe, who's been ruled out Thursday with an ankle injury. The Bucks are playing the first of a back-to-back, meaning that Bledsoe could miss Friday's matchup with the Knicks as well. Snell has topped the 30-minute mark in three of the last five games and will likely be close to that number for as long as Bledsoe is out.
Snell will move back to the bench Monday against the 76ers as Malcolm Brogdon returns to the starting lineup. Snell started the past two games as Malcolm Brogdon was out with a calf injury, however Brogdon's return pushes Snell back to his usual role off the bench. Snell's averaging 24.6 minutes in January and should seeing similar playing time.
