Forbes declined his player option for the 2021-22 season and will become an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Forbes shot 45.2 percent from three last season, which ranked third best in the NBA among players with 200-plus attempts. The 28-year-old sharpshooter will receive plenty of attention from contenders, but a return to the Bucks is not out of the question either. On the season, the fifth-year guard averaged 10.0 points across 19.3 minutes per game.
Forbes tallied 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes during Thursday's 113-84 win over Miami.
Forbes started the second half after Donte DiVincenzo (foot) went down and he ended up posting double figures in scoring for the second game in a row. The 27-year-old shooting guard could potentially start in Game 4 if DiVincenzo is sidelined for that contest. Forbes has gone 12-of-19 from downtown through the first three games of the series.
Forbes had a career-playoff-high 22 points (8-12 FG, 6-9 3Pt) and five rebounds in Monday's Game 2 win over Miami.
Forbes was the story of the night, hitting five three-pointers in the first quarter alone as Milwaukee jumped out to a 46-20 advantage after 12 minutes. Paced by Forbes, Giannis Antetokounmpo (31 points) and Pat Connaughton (5-9 3Pt), Milwaukee sustained, or built upon, the lead for the final three quarters and finished 22-of-53 from three-point range after going just 5-of-31 in Game 1.
Forbes is unavailable for Sunday's game against the Bulls for rest purposes.
Forbes was a late scratch Sunday, and the team later revealed that he'll be unavailable off the bench. He should be available for the start of the playoffs.
Forbes was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against Chicago.
Forbes and the rest of Milwaukee's starters were removed from the lineup just before the start of Sunday's contest. It's not yet clear whether Forbes will be available off the bench, but Sam Merrill will take his place in the starting five.
Forbes is starting Sunday's game against the Bulls, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Forbes will join the starting lineup for the final game of the regular season with Khris Middleton (ankle) unavailable. Forbes has averaged 9.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game across his last five appearances.
Forbes produced 21 points (7-9 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT) across 20 minutes in Saturday's 122-108 win over the Heat.
Forbes was red-hot from beyond the arc, converting five threes out of six attempts. His 21-point effort marked his third-highest total of the season, and his minutes have seen a noticeable increase over the past couple of games. The Bucks won't hesitate to keep Forbes on the floor if the sharpshooter is dialed in from long range.
Forbes notched 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.
Forbes has been a reliable scoring threat off the bench for the Bucks and while he's not expected to start unless there's a rash of injuries, he's still productive in his limited role. He has scored in double digits in six games in a row while shooting 54.1 percent from three-point range in that stretch.
Forbes tallied 12 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and a rebound across 19 minutes in Sunday's 117-114 win over the Nets.
Forbes has gained traction recently from the bench and entered today's game following two excellent performances. His 30 points against Houston was a season-high, and he recorded his first double-double of the season Friday night against Chicago. Forbes' fantasy value may reach its peak in the coming week, as multiple Bucks may take seats for pre-playoff rest.
Forbes had 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and 13 rebounds in Friday's win over Chicago.
The Bucks were able to bounce back from a tough loss to Houston on Thursday, and Forbes turned in a second consecutive strong effort. He went for 30 points against the Rockets and followed up with his first double-double since December of 2018. Forbes made a spot start Friday with Donte DiVincenzo (toe) sitting out.
Forbes scored 30 points (11-17 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added one steal in a 143-136 loss to the Rockets on Thursday.
Forbes provided Milwaukee with huge production off the bench as they attempted to fill the scoring void left by Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle), who left the game early in the first quarter and did not return. It was a new career-high point total for the guard who has now scored in double figures in three of his last four contests. Forbes has scored 14.5 points per game on 55.0 percent shooting from the field and 45.8 percent shooting from three over that stretch.
Forbes (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
Forbes hasn't missed a game since March 24, but he's dealing with a right thigh bruise, which could keep him sidelined Sunday. Forbes tallied 13 points across 18 minutes in Saturday's blowout win over the 76ers.
Forbes scored 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds in Saturday's loss to Memphis.
Starting in place of Donte DiVincenzo (toe) for the second straight game, Forbes took full advantage, hitting a trio of three-pointers and putting up his highest point total since March 11. If DiVincenzo continues to miss time, Forbes could make for a reasonable streaming option in deep leagues, but his fantasy ceiling is relatively low, as he typically only contributes points and three-pointers.
Forbes will start Thursday's game against Atlanta, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.
With Donte DiVincenzo (toe) sidelined, Forbes will slide in for his eighth start of the season. In his last start on April 9, Forbes tallied 18 points, three rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes.
Forbes scored 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt) while adding three rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes during Friday's loss to the Hornets.
With the Bucks missing their entire starting five, Forbes made his first start since Feb. 18 and delivered a productive effort. The 27-year-old hadn't scored in double digits in any of his prior six games, but if the team's backcourt remains banged up, he could retain a meaningful role in the short term.
Forbes is starting Friday's game against the Hornets, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
The Bucks are dealing with several key injuries Friday, so Forbes should see significant run as a starter. Forbes has averaged 7.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 17.0 minutes per game across his last five appearances.
Forbes (toe) will play Friday against the Celtics.
After one missed game due to a sprained toe on his right foot, Forbes will be back in action Friday. This month, he's averaged 9.1 points on 44.4 percent shooting from deep.
Forbes (toe) is listed as probable for Friday's game against Boston.
Forbes missed Wednesday's game with a right toe sprain, but it doesn't look like he'll be forced to miss a second game in a row. If able to play, Forbes should be locked in to his usual workload of around 18.8 minutes per game.
Forbes (toe) will not play in Wednesday's game against Boston, Jim Owczarski of the Journal Sentinel reports.
A sprained toe landed Forbes on the injury report, and it will ultimately lead to his first absence of the season. The reserve guard saw extended action in Monday's blowout win over Indiana, playing 30 minutes and finishing with four threes en route to 12 points. Consider him day-to-day ahead of Friday's rematch with Boston.
Forbes is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Celtics with a sprained right toe.
Forbes apparently suffered the injury during Monday's win over the Pacers, when he had 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-8 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 30 minutes. Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is also questionable, so there's a chance the Bucks are without two rotation regulars Wednesday.
