Top Pat Connaughton News

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Lone bright spot off bench

    Connaughton produced 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes during Friday's 108-95 loss to Boston in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    Connaughton was the lone Bucks' role player to find any offensive rhythm during Game 6. With Khris Middleton (hamstring) still listed as out for Game 7 and Grayson Allen and Wesley Matthews struggling with their respective shots, it's possible Connaughton gets a promotion to the starting lineup Sunday. Regardless, he'll play a major role in the win-or-go-home matchup. The backup wing has scored in double figures in five straight games and averaged 12.4 points and 4.2 rebounds during those contests.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Stays hot in loss

    Connaughton supplied 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, one block and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 116-108 loss to the Celtics.

    Connaughton has knocked down three treys in back-to-back contests. Additionally, he's logged 30-plus minutes in each game -- usage that Connaughton hasn't seen since late December. His size has lended well to defending Boston's wings. It's likely Connaughton continues receiving ample run throughout the series.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Erupts in win

    Connaughton provided 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-9 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 116-100 victory over the Bulls.

    Connaughton caught fire from beyond the arc, logging his fourth game of the season with six-plus three-pointers made. Failing to exceed five points in three games against Chicago, Connaughton averaged 8.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in the series. He'll look to boost his impact in a second-round series against the Celtics.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Shifts to bench

    Connaughton will come off the bench Sunday against the Mavericks.

    Connaughton made a spot start Friday against the Clippers but had only five points (2-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), one rebound, five assists and two steals in 23 minutes. He should see similar playing time Sunday off the bench as he averaged 11.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21.2 minutes in the five games preceding Friday's start.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Starting Friday

    Connaughton is starting Friday's game against the Clippers, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Connaughton came off the bench in each of his last six appearances and averaged 11.2 points and 3.8 rebounds in 21.2 minutes per game during that time. He'll make his first start since Feb. 6 with the Bucks dealing with several injuries Friday.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Lands three triples in win

    Connaughton chipped in 16 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and one steal over 23 minutes during Thursday's 114-102 win over the Wizards.

    Connaughton scored at least 14 points for the third straight game since returning from injury. His role is locked in at around 22 minutes per night, with him playing as a glue guy off the bench. Across those three games, Connaughton has connected on a combined 11 three-pointers, grabbing 11 boards. He is not on the radar in standard formats, although he can have some value as a streaming option for anyone in need of perimeter scoring.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Drains five threes in return

    Connaughton totaled 15 points (5-11 FG, 5-11 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 138-119 loss to Minnesota.

    The 29-year-old wing hadn't played since Feb. 10 due to a finger injury, but with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) sidelined, it was an opportune time for Connaughton to make his return. He was having the best season of his career from beyond the arc prior to getting hurt, averaging 2.3 made threes a game and draining 40.7 percent of his long-range attempts, so Saturday's shooting success is a strong sign he's fully recovered from his injury.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Will play Saturday

    Connaughton (finger) is available for Saturday's game against Minnesota, Justin Garcia of the Milwaukee Bucks Radio Network reports.

    Connaughton is set to appear for the first time since Feb. 10 after needing surgery to repair a fractured finger. With Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) sidelined, Connaughton could see more usage than normal, although it's unclear if he'll be limited in any way coming off the extended absence.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Expected to return Saturday

    Connaughton (finger) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Connaughton hasn't played in over a month after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured finger, but it sounds like he is on track to return for Saturday's tilt with Minnesota. Prior to the surgery, Connaughton was averaging 10.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 27.0 minutes per game.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: On track in recovery

    Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Friday that Connaughton (finger) is progressing toward a return and will likely be ready to resume game action around his estimated four-week recovery timeline, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I think more just following the timeline as expected is positive," Budenholzer said of Connaughton. "He's been able to kind of do a little bit more as the week has passed, but it's still got a little ways to go."

    Connaughton underwent surgery Feb. 14 to repair a fractured finger on his right hand, so he's approximately three and a half weeks into his recovery program. Assuming Connaughton experiences no setbacks while he regains conditioning and waits for the finger to fully heal, he could make his return at some point toward the back half of the Bucks' upcoming four-game, one-week road trip that kicks off Saturday at Golden State.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Likely out four weeks

    Connaughton underwent successful surgery Monday to repair the fractured fourth metacarpal on his right hand and is expected to be sidelined for approximately four weeks.

    Connaughton suffered the injury in question during last Thursday's loss to the Suns. The Bucks traded Donte DiVincenzo to the Kings earlier that day, so his departure coupled with Connaughton's injury leaves Khris Middleton, Grayson Allen and Wesley Matthews as the team's primary options on the wing. The Bucks have also been rumored to be heavily involved in the buyout market, so they could add additional backcourt/wing depth in the near future to cover for the loss of Connaughton.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Will undergo surgery

    Connaughton will undergo surgery Monday to repair a fractured fourth metacarpal on his right hand, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. He's without a definitive timetable for his return, but the Bucks expect him to return by the end of the regular season.

    Connaughton left Thursday's loss to the Suns after suffering the right finger injury. The Bucks dealt Donte DiVincenzo to the Kings ahead of the trade deadline, so Grayson Allen and Wesley Matthews should pick up additional run on the wing for the duration of Connaughton's absence. The Bucks had already been rumored to be heavily targeting a guard in the buyout market, and the team's motivation to add another player could increase while Connaughton is out indefinitely.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Fractures finger, set to miss time

    Connaughton was diagnosed with a fourth metacarpal fracture on his right hand after departing Thursday's game against the Suns, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports. The Bucks haven't provided a timeline for his return, but Connaughton is expected to miss time as a result of the injury.

    Connaughton might have been able to play through the injury if it was to his left hand, but the fact that he's dealing with a fracture to a finger on his shooting hand makes it likely that he'll be sidelined through the All-Star break, if not longer. The Bucks could have a better idea regarding Connaughton's timeline once the team determines whether he'll need surgery to address the injury or if he'll be able to recover through rest and rehab. With Connaughton out and Donte DiVincenzo having been shipped out to Sacramento earlier Thursday, Grayson Allen and Wesley Matthews should pick up additional run on the wing in the meantime.
