Shabazz Muhammad: Sticking in China
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad agreed to a contract Thursday with the Shenzhen Aviators of the Chinese Basketball Association, Dario Skerletic of reports.

After spending the first five seasons of his professional career in the NBA, the 14th overall pick of the 2013 draft headed to China last fall following his release from the Bucks at the conclusion of training camp. He appeared in 41 CBA games for the Shanxi Brave Dragons in 2018-19, averaging 29.7 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. The 26-year-old will likely remain one of the top wings on the circuit during the upcoming campaign, albiet with a different club.

Shabazz Muhammad: Waived by Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad was waived by the Bucks on Thursday, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Muhammad has five years of NBA experience, so there's certainly a chance he's given a long look by some other team's in the league. During the 2017-18 campaign, specifically, the forward averaged just 5.0 points and 1.8 rebounds across 9.7 minutes. If he happens to go unsigned, Muhammad could opt to head overseas on a more lucrative contract. No matter where Muhammad lands, he won't be fantasy relevant.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Agrees to deal with Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammed agreed to a training-camp deal with the Bucks on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Muhammad ended last season with Milwaukee after beginning it with Minnesota, averaging 5.0 points in 9.7 minutes over 43 games. He will add some more wing depth for Milwaukee, but will likely continue to play a small role with the team if he's able to break camp with a roster spot in hand.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 22 points off the bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad totaled 22 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), and eight rebounds in 23 minutes during Monday's 102-86 victory over Orlando.

Muhammad scored a season-high 22 points on Monday while also adding eight rebounds. He has proven over his career that he has the ability to put the ball in the basket when afforded the opportunity. However, he doesn't really do much besides scoring, leaving him as purely a points streamer, and only when he gets the minutes.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Magic, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Muhammad missed Saturday's contest with a sprained right ankle and is currently in danger of sitting out a second straight game. Look for him to test out the ankle during pregame warmups before a final decision is made on his availability. With Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) also questionable, the Bucks could be short on bodies in the frontcourt.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Out with sprained ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad is out for Saturday's game against the Knicks due to a sprained right ankle, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

This is the first news of Muhammad dealing with an injury, so it seems likely he picked it up during the team's most recent game Thursday against Brooklyn, when he played nine minutes and shot 1-for-4. That said, usually doesn't see more than 10 minutes on any given night, so his absence from the rotation shouldn't change things too drastically.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Non-factor offensively Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad added five points (1-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and two rebounds off the bench during the Bucks' 119-111 loss to the Nets on Thursday.

For the second straight game, Muhammad was a non-factor offensively, as he has only scored seven points dating back to Apr. 3. The former UCLA product enjoyed a two-game stretch in March in which he poured in 33 points, but aside from that, Muhammad usually produces around his season average of 4.6 points per game.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Leads team in scoring off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad played 20 minutes off the bench Friday against Chicago, finishing with 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 3PT, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.

It was easily the best performance in quite some time for Muhammad, who's now strung together a pair of strong showings after playing sparingly through his first few weeks in Milwaukee. The 25-year-old benefited from the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) on Friday, however, and he'll likely sink back into a reduced role once Antetokounmpo returns, which could come as early as Sunday against San Antonio.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: DNP-Coach's Decision during Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad did not see the floor during Monday's 121-103 win over the Grizzlies.

Muhammad was a healthy scratch after scoring six points to go with one board and one steal in six minutes during Friday's win over the Knicks. Muhammad is averaging just 6.5 minutes per game through two appearances with the Bucks, this after earning 9.4 minutes per night through 32 showings with the Timberwolves. Meanwhile fellow recent addition, Brandon Jennings, exploded for a near triple-double in his season debut on Monday, so there's not much reason to expect Muhammad to make a splash here.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Available to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad will be available to make his Bucks debut Sunday, Ted Davis of the Bucks Radio Network reports.

The Bucks officially announced signing Muhammad about an hour before tip-off. While he'll be available to play off the bench, it's unlikely that he sees a significant amount of playing time given the return of Tony Snell from a thigh injury and Muhammad's limited time with the team. The former UCLA standout, however, could ultimately end up taking away minutes from rookie Sterling Brown and Jason Terry off the bench.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Yet to officially join Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad was not with the Bucks for Friday's loss to the Pacers.

Muhammad will join the team as soon as his buyout from the Timberwolves is completed, but it's unclear when, exactly, that will be. For now, the former UCLA standout's availability for Sunday's game against Philadelphia remains up in the air. If he's unavailable, his next chance to make his Bucks debut would come Monday, when Milwaukee faces off with the Pacers again in Indianapolis.

Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Plans to sign with Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad intends to sign with the Bucks once he clears waivers, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Muhammad fell out of the Timberwolves rotation this season, playing in only 11 games since Nov. 28. The 25-year-old will likely compete for minutes with Sterling Brown and Tony Snell once he arrives in Milwaukee.

Shabazz Muhammad: Agrees to buyout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad and the Timberwolves reached agreement Thursday on a buyout of the forward's contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of reports.

Muhammad is averaging 9.4 minutes per contest in 32 games this season, which is the lowest minute average per game since his rookie season. He hasn't played in 32 of the past 43 games, so the veteran should have decently fresh legs for whichever team decides to sign him.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Requests trade or release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad has requested that Minnesota move or waive him before Thursday's NBA trade deadline, ESPN reports.

Muhammad did not play in Saturday's win over New Orleans. He hasn't played in 24 of Minnesota's past 33 games as he's been stuck on the bench and fallen out of favor with head coach Tom Thibodeau. He's played over ten minutes in a game just once since Nov. 24.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Logs garbage time Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad finished with four points (2-3 FG) and one rebound across four minutes in Monday's 127-99 win over the Cavaliers.

It took a contest in which the Timberwolves led by as many as 41 points in order for Muhammad to see the floor for just the second time in 19 games. Muhammad's defensive shortcomings have resulted in him falling out of the rotation in favor of Marcus Georges-Hunt, who typically only sees light run behind high-minute starting wings Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Stuck on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad did not play in Thursday's win over Sacramento due to a coach's decision.

Muhammad has played only once in the last eight games and even then got only three minutes. His inability to get off the bench Thursday was particularly notable since head coach Tom Thibodeau used six players off his bench amid a blowout win. Muhammad looks buried on the bench at this point.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Stuck on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad did not play in Sunday's win at Dallas due to a coach's decision.

Muhammad has fallen out of favor with head coach Tom Thibodeau as he's been a healthy scratch in five of the last six games and played just three minutes in the other.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Generates point per minute Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad poured in nine points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added two rebounds over nine minutes in Saturday's 118-110 loss to the Suns.

The veteran forward made the most of his time on the court, leading the second unit in scoring and posting his second-best point total of the season. Muhammad is seeing his lowest amount of minutes (14.6) since his rookie campaign, rendering him a fantasy non-factor in all but the deepest of formats for the time being.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Doesn't score in return to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad did not score and had one rebound in 12 minutes in Friday's win over Oklahoma City.

With the return of Jimmy Butler from an illness, Muhammad came off the bench after being in the starting lineup the last two games. Muhammad may struggle to find minutes off the bench with Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler likely taking up huge workloads on the wing and Jamal Crawford likely set to get significant minutes as a reserve.

Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Struggles in second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad posted four points (1-9 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pistons.

With Jimmy Butler (illness) missing his second straight game, Muhammad made his second straight start, but failed to get anything going offensively after a solid 14-point outing Tuesday. Muhammed remains a high-risk value option should Butler miss any more games later in the season.
