Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Erratic from field in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews finished with nine points (2-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 109-95 loss to the Nuggets.

The Bucks held out seven players for either rest or injury Monday, but two of the oldest members of the roster -- Matthews and Kyle Korver -- weren't among them. Korver (season-high 23 points) was able to take advantage of the multiple absences, but Matthews couldn't capitalize on his elevated usage rate and minutes. He'll likely settle back around 25 minutes and see his role on offense dwindle Thursday, when the Bucks should have most of their key players available for a matchup with the Celtics.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Hot from three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews scored 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), adding on six rebounds and three assists during a game-high 28 minutes in Milwaukee's 133-86 win over the Thunder.

Extending the Bucks' winning streak to five games, Matthews trailed only Giannis Antetokounmpo (32 points) in scoring for the team. Friday was Matthews' eighth game of the season in which he made four or more threes. He is shooting 37.6 percent from behind the arc this season.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Impact continues to decline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews had just eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 112-101 victory over Philadelphia.

Matthews continues to start for the Bucks despite his production heading in a downward trajectory. He is basically on the floor due to the fact they are winning games comfortably and the current lineup is working so well. He is far from the fantasy asset he once was, and based on recent numbers, he is not even a solid option in deeper formats.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Pops for 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt) while adding two rebounds, two assists and a block in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 120-108 win over the Pelicans.

The 33-year-old re-discovered his old form from the outside, at least for one night, posting his highest scoring total since Dec. 22 and draining his most three-pointers since Nov. 25. Matthews' low usage in an offense dominated by Giannis and Khris Middleton makes him an erratic fantasy asset -- he'd scored a total of 22 points in his prior four games combined -- but when he heats up, he's still capable of making an impact.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Will play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (illness) is available to play Friday against the Hornets.

The veteran wing was listed as probable due to the illness, so it's no surprise to see he'll be suiting up Friday in Paris. Matthews should take up his usual place in the starting lineup and is averaging 6.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 25.8 minutes over the last five games.

January 23, 2020 01:52 PM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (illness) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Hornets.

Matthews is battling an illness but is still expected to take the court Friday in Paris. Over his past five games, Matthews is averaging 6.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 25.8 minutes.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Drops 13 against Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews had 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two boards, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

Matthews scored in double figures for just the third time this season, as he stepped up his offensive output in the game. Matthews has played more of a secondary role in the Bucks offense since joining the team this off-season, as he averages a little more than seven points per game despite his role in the starting five. He'll next take the floor against the Hornets on Friday.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Good to go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (finger) is starting Thursday against Boston.

Matthews was probable for Thursday's matchup due to a left finger sprain, so this update was expected. He's been held in check in the scoring column of late, averaging just 5.2 points over his last five games.

January 15, 2020 11:08 PM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Should play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews has a finger sprain on his left hand and is probable to play Thursday against the Celtics.

The veteran wing has battled the left finger issue over the past week, though it was previously listed as soreness and not a sprain. Regardless, the injury shouldn't impact Matthews availability for Thursday's contest.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Unproductive in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews finished with just three points, three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Saturday's 122-101 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Matthews continues to start for the Bucks despite struggling with his productivity. Over the past two weeks, Matthews is outside the top 300 in nine-category leagues. The Bucks are winning games comfortably and as long as that is the case, Matthews appears likely to remain in the starting lineup. Opportunity is obviously not everything in this case and Matthews can be passed over in most formats.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Available as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (finger) is available for Saturday's game at Portland, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Matthews was considered probable with left finger soreness, so it's no surprise he'll be suiting up Saturday. The 33-year-old is averaging 7.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 24.1 minutes during his first season with the Bucks.

January 11, 2020 02:08 PM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Listed as probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews is officially probable for Saturday's matchup with the Trail Blazers due to left finger soreness, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Matthews presumably picked up the injury in Friday's victory over the Kings. He looks on track to give it a go in Portland assuming he avoids any setbacks. Still, final confirmation is unlikely to come until closer to game time.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Hits four threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews added 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt), two assists, a rebound, a steal and a block in 29 minutes Monday night during the Bucks' 126-104 loss to the Spurs.

Monday marked Matthews' third time with double-digit scoring since the beginning of December. Despite being the starting shooting guard on the lethal Milwaukee offense, Matthews is low on the pecking order. Nights like Monday show that he is still capable of finding his stroke, however, and an injury to Khris Middleton or George Hill may thrust Matthews into a more featured role.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Does nothing in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (thigh) ended with two points (1-9 FG, 0-6 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes during Saturday's 127-118 victory over the Spurs.

Matthews returned after missing the last two games due to a thigh injury. He went straight back into the starting, though he did close to nothing during what amounted to plenty of time on the floor. At this stage, Matthews is simply not a solid contributor and can be left on waivers in most competitive formats.

January 3, 2020 09:20 PM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: To return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (thigh) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Spurs.

Matthews has missed the last two matchups because of a right thigh bruise, but he'll be back in action Saturday. He figures to return to his starting role for Milwaukee.

January 1, 2020 05:36 PM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (thigh) is out for Wednesday's matchup against the Timberwolves.

Matthews will miss his second consecutive contest due to a bruised right thigh. Donte DiVincenzo is expected to draw another start as a result.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (thigh) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Timberwolves.

Matthews is at risk to miss a second straight game due to a right thigh bruise. If he ends up sidelined again, Sterling Brown, Kyle Korver and Donte DiVincenzo could all see extra minutes.

December 30, 2019 01:44 PM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews won't play Monday against Chicago due to a right thigh contusion.

Matthews has been lingering with a thigh injury over the past couple of weeks, ultimately missing the Dec. 21 contest against New York. With the veteran guard out Monday, the Bucks could elect to start Sterling Brown at the shooting-guard position or continue with Donte DiVencenzo, who has started the past eight games.

Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Unable to score in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews had zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes during Friday's 112-86 victory over the Hawks.

Matthews was a disaster Friday, failing to score despite the game being a blowout. He is just not that good at this point and his days as a starter could be numbered. Donte DiVincenzo would be the obvious candidate to move into the starting lineup based on what he has been doing as a fill-in for Eric Bledsoe (leg). Matthews' days of being a fantasy asset are well and truly behind him and there is no reason to think that changes moving forward.

December 23, 2019 12:12 AM
Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Scores 19, sinks four treys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews chipped in 19 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two steals, one rebound, one assist and one block in 28 minutes during Sunday's 117-89 win over the Pacers.

Matthews returned to the lineup following a one-game absence with a bruised thigh and matched his season high in scoring. He has been a solid addition for Milwaukee thanks to his ability to defend several positions and make shots from beyond the arc, but the 33-year-old veteran is only a viable option in deeper leagues.
