Lopez ended with 12 points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and five rebounds in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 128-97 loss to the Nuggets.
Lopez is outside the top 150 for the past month and turned in another disappointing performance in the loss. He is somewhat of a spent force when it comes to fantasy basketball and despite still having some upside in blocks, his season average of 1.3 per game is far from must-roster material. While he should not be dropped for just anyone, moving on in certain situations may be the right move.
Lopez delivered 15 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and a steal across 25 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves.
Lopez was the only Milwaukee starter who didn't play more than 25 minutes, but he maximized his time on the court and reached the 15-point mark after five straight games where he failed to make an impact in the scoring column. Lopez has scored 15 or more points in just six games this season, though, so he's not likely to post these numbers often.
Lopez totaled just seven points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 98-85 victory over Oklahoma City.
Lopez was unable to arrest his recent slide, turning in another underwhelming performance. He is barely inside the top 150 over the past two weeks and is putting up eighth-round value on the season. If you aren't desperate for blocks, Lopez is probably entering waiver wire territory, at least in certain situations.
Lopez provided 23 points (8-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds and two blocks across 26 minutes Friday in a 129-115 loss at Utah.
Lopez has benefited from playing the Jazz. He recorded his previous season high of 12 field-goal attempts against them on Jan. 8. Neither Giannis Antetokounmpo nor Khris Middleton provided consistent production, which allowed the center to serve as either Milwaukee's first or second scoring option Friday. In February, Lopez is averaging 12.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 26.0 minutes.
Lopez recorded 13 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one steals over 29 minutes in Friday's 123-105 win over the Cavaliers.
Lopez was held in check earlier in the week, but he's now topped 10 points in each of the last two games while recording six rebounds in each of those appearances. The 32-year-old has been somewhat inconsistent to begin the season, but he's been productive over the last two contests.
Lopez had nine points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3PT), four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.
Lopez turned in some useful defensive stats, but his nine points snapped a six-game streak of double-figure scoring. In 27 minutes, Lopez failed to get to the free throw line, and his one assist marked his first dime since Jan. 15.
Lopez scored 20 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with seven rebounds and one block across 32 minutes in a 115-108 win over Toronto on Wednesday.
The center eclipsed his season scoring average in the first half alone, as he went into halftime with 12 points. Lopez has scored in double digits in five games despite scoring at the lowest rate of his career (10.1 points per game) this season. Notably, the veteran center is gathering rebounds at his highest clip since 2016 with 5.2 boards per contest; he's grabbed seven or more rebounds in four of his last six games.
Lopez posted 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and three rebounds in 26 minutes during Sunday's 129-115 win over the Hawks.
Lopez has scored in double digits in each of the past four games, a span in which he's averaged 12.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 31.8 minutes. His rebounding continues to be inconsistent, but he's a nice source of threes and blocks.
Lopez added 11 points (4-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block over 34 minutes in Friday's 112-109 win over the Mavs.
Lopez finally recorded his first double-double of the season after falling one point short Wednesday. While hitting the 10-point plateau for the fourth time on the year, Lopez has seen his scoring average drop every year since the 2015-16 season and is averaging a career-low 9.3 points per game.
Lopez scored nine points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt) while adding 11 rebounds, four blocks and an assist in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 win over the Pistons.
The blocks and boards were both season highs for Lopez, as the veteran center came one point short of his first double-double of the year. He's recorded a block in eight straight games, but Lopez's other numbers remain erratic, and he's averaging 9.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.3 threes, 1.9 blocks, 1.4 assists and 0.9 steals over that stretch.
Lopez tallied 12 points (4-12 FG, 4-12 3Pt), three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during the 131-118 loss to the Jazz on Friday.
After posting a season-high in points and assists his last outing, Lopez could not build up any momentum. Despite starting and being 7' tall, Lopez was out-rebounded by every other starter, including the 6'3" Jrue Holiday. On the plus side, Lopez has now hit multiple 3-pointers in four consecutive games.
Lopez recorded 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, four rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 130-115 win over the Pistons.
This was the performance fantasy managers were waiting for, with Lopez finally cracking the 15-point mark after three straight games in single-digits. He also passed the ball nicely, recording a season-high five dimes after just two total assists prior. Lopez has also recorded at least one block in four straight contests.
Lopez recorded nine points (3-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 16 minutes during Friday's 126-96 win over the Bulls.
After struggling from distance early in the season, the big man has found his stroke, hitting 53.8 percent of his triples across the past three games. The Bucks have already been a part of multiple blowouts, which has kept Lopez's minutes (21.5) low thus far. Last season, he saw 26.7 minutes per game, which is where we should expect him to trend in competitive games.
Lopez scored just six points (2-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with two rebounds, two blocks and a steal in Sunday's loss to the Knicks.
It's been an awful start to the year for Lopez, who's averaging just 7.0 points across three games so far. Typically a reliable source of threes, he's made only a single one thus far, which is troubling for a guy whose fantasy value derives largely from his unconventional threes-and-blocks package. He's also played only around 20 minutes in each of the last two games, which is a departure from the norm. That said, both were blowouts, so Lopez may just have gotten a veteran's rest in those largely uncontested games. There's no reason to panic yet, but if he doesn't pick it up in the next week or so, the time may come for fantasy managers to make some hard choices.
Lopez finished with 15 points (7-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 14 boards, and one block in 37 minutes of a 103-94 loss to Miami on Tuesday.
Lopez notched his first double-double of the postseason, but failed to knock down a single shot from deep as his team was eliminated early from the playoffs for the second consecutive year. Lopez was a reliable scorer for the Bucks in his second year in Milwaukee, but the Stanford product couldn't replace the production of Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) as his team was eliminated in five games.
Lopez finished with 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five boards, two assists, one block and one steal in 42 minutes of a 118-115 overtime win against Miami on Sunday.
Lopez entered the fourth quarter with just two points on the night, but he got hot in the final period, dropping double-digits as the Bucks hung close to send the game to overtime and ultimately claw out the win. It wasn't Lopez's best scoring night, but it was enough to help get the job done and extend the series to Tuesday's Game 5.
Lopez went for 16 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, a steal and a block in 32 minutes during Friday's Game 3 loss against the Heat.
The Bucks have been disappointing on both ends of the court in the series against the Heat, but Lopez has been one of the few pleasant surprises for Milwaukee -- he has scored at least 16 points in each game while going a combined 10-for-16 from three-point range. His ability to stretch the floor has caused all sorts of problems for the Heat defense.
Lopez had 16 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and seven rebounds in Wednesday's Game 2 loss to Miami.
Coming off of a 24-point Game 1, Lopez had another strong night from beyond the arc, and he's now 7-of-13 from deep for the series. Lopez also hauled in seven rebounds after grabbing only one in 27 minutes in Game 1.
Lopez finished with 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three rebounds, one block and one steal in 33 minutes of Thursday's 111-96 Game 2 win against Orlando.
Lopez made half his shots from deep as he and his team bounced back from a rough Game 1; he scored just five points in 30 minutes on Tuesday. The veteran big man has the ability to go off from deep and is a steady source of blocks, but consistency has been an issue for him all year long.
Lopez finished with 24 points (9-11 FG, 5-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and three boards in 23 minutes of a 126-113 win against Washington on Tuesday.
Lopez provided stability in the Bucks lineup, as he was the only regular starter left after Giannis Antetokounmpo's ejection. The veteran showed his reliability leading his team in scoring as he kept his scoring streak alive. He's now reached double figures in each game since the restart. Milwaukee finishes the seeding games Thursday against Memphis.
