Bucks' Sam Merrill: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill (ankle) is not listed on the injury report for Game 4 against Brooklyn on Sunday.

Merrill wasn't available for Game 3 due to an ankle injury, but he's no longer listed on the injury report. He isn't expected to receive any minutes in this series.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill is out for Thursday's Game 3 against the Nets due to a sprained right ankle.

Merrill isn't expected to see the court during any competitive playoff minutes, so his absence won't affect the Bucks' rotation.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Absent Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill (coach's decision) didn't play during Tuesday's win over the Hornets.

Merrill was absent for a second straight matchup after posting eight points in six minutes against the 76ers last Saturday. The rookie is currently averaging 3.1 points and 1.0 rebounds in 27 appearances.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Probable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill (thumb) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Orlando.

Merrill is dealing with a sprained left thumb after he played 27 minutes in Friday's loss to Charlotte. It sounds like Merrill will once again be available Sunday, though he may see a smaller role with several players potentially returning from injuries.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Solid performance in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill totaled 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Friday's 127-119 loss to the Hornets.

The rookie was a healthy DNP the previous four games, but he saw his second-most minutes of the season Friday as the Bucks' entire lineup was out due to various injuries. Jeff Teague and Bryn Forbes drew the start at the guard positions, but Merrill played the most minutes off the bench and was the team's fourth-leading scorer. Oddly, Pat Connaughton was averaging the most minutes between the available guards Friday but saw the fewest minutes, perhaps underscoring Merrill's paltry spot in the team's rotation.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill will start Saturday's game against the Knicks.

With all the Bucks' starters sidelined besides Brook Lopez, Merrill will get the first start of his career. Per 36 minutes, he's averaged 14.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Scores career-high 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill scored 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt) with two rebounds and one steal in a 122-114 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

Merrill came away with a new career-high point total thanks to 10 fourth-quarter points. The guard played the entire fourth as the Celtics held a commanding lead throughout the final quarter. Merrill is shooting 52.4 percent on his 21 attempts from three this season but isn't a staple in the Bucks' rotation.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Back with NBA team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill played three minutes off the bench Sunday in the Bucks' 128-115 win over the Kings, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG) and one rebound.

After a five-game stint in the G League bubble in Orlando with the Memphis Hustle, Merrill rejoined the Bucks ahead of Friday's win over the Thunder. While he didn't play in that contest, the rookie was able to pick up some garbage-time run to close out the weekend. Milwaukee could soon get Jrue Holiday (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) back in the lineup, and once that happens, Merrill may be a candidate to return to the G League.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Goes for 17 points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill had 17 points (6-16 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes in Monday's win over Salt Lake City.

Merrill once again ended as one of Memphis' top performers, finishing as the team's second-best scorer while also ending just two rebounds shy of posting a double-double. Merrill has lacked consistency thus far, though, with two single-digit scoring appearances mixed with two games where he surpassed the 15-point mark.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Bounces back Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill registered 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven assists and two steals across 30 minutes in Thursday's win over Canton.

Merrill only had five points in the season opener, but he showed glimpses of what he can do with a team-best 20 points Thursday. His upside going forward will be somewhere in between both figures, but he should be closer to what he produced in this game on most nights. He saw minutes in nine games during the current NBA season, and that alone should make him an above-average offensive threat at the G League level.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Struggles from field in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill posted five points (2-13 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and a steal across 31 minutes in Wednesday's loss against Austin.

Merrill finished second among Hustle players in field-goal attempts but struggled badly, making just two of his 13 shots. Merrill has seen time in nine NBA games this season for the Bucks, however, and that alone should make him one of the Hustle's go-to players on offense even if he has an off night like he did Wednesday.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Flex-assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill was flex-assigned to the G League's Memphis Hustle on Friday.

The Bucks aren't sending a G League team to the bubble in Orlando, so Merrill will join the Grizzlies' G League squad for the four-week season. Once the Hustle get eliminated from the tournament, Merrill will presumably return to the Bucks.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Active against Utah
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill (ankle) is active for Friday's game against the Jazz, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Merrill will suit up Friday after missing two straight games due to a sprained left ankle. However, he's unlikely to see meaningful playing time for the Bucks.

January 7, 2021 05:52 PM
Bucks' Sam Merrill: Probable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill (ankle) is probable for Friday's contest against the Jazz.

Merrill has missed two straight games due to a sprained left ankle, but he should be back in action Friday. He mostly sees minutes in garbage time.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Merrill (ankle) took part in a non-contact practice Thursday, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

Budenholzer suggested that of the Bucks' three injured players -- Pat Connaughton (groin) and Torrey Craig (nose) are the others -- Merrill is the closest to return to game action. Merrill, who has missed the last two contests with a sprained left ankle, should be viewed as questionable for Friday's game against the Jazz.

Bucks' Sam Merrill: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

The rookie second-round pick will be unavailable for the second straight contest due to the left ankle sprain. Merrill's next opportunity to take the court will be Friday versus the Jazz.

January 3, 2021 09:00 PM
Bucks' Sam Merrill: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrill won't play Monday against the Pistons due to a left ankle sprain.

Merrill hasn't played a significant role for the Bucks early in the season, but he apparently sustained a sprained left ankle recently. As a result, he'll be held out of Monday's contest. It's not yet clear whether he could return Wednesday against Detroit.
