Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Nears double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson played 21 minutes off the bench in Monday's 109-95 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), nine rebounds and one assist.

Though he was cleared to play in the front end of a back-to-back set Sunday in Phoenix, Wilson, who had been dealing with a left ankle sprain, didn't play in that contest. That was likely the result of a coach's decision, but Wilson was able to see minutes Monday thanks in large part to the Bucks holding out seven rotation regulars for either rest- or injury-related reasons. Wilson's appearance off the bench signifies that he's healthy again, but he'll presumably find himself outside of the rotation again Thursday, when the Bucks should have most of their key players available again for a game against the Celtics.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Good to go vs. Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (ankle) will be available Sunday against Phoenix.

Wilson was initially deemed doubtful due to a sprained ankle, but he'll be available as an option off the bench should the Bucks need him. Wilson has not been a part of the regular rotation, but he could be forced into action with no Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee).

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Dealing with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is doubtful for Sunday's game at Phoenix with a left ankle sprain.

Wilson has been bouncing between the Bucks and the Wisconsin Herd in the G League, though it's unclear when exactly he picked up the ankle sprain. The 24-year-old is unlikely to play a significant role off the bench Sunday even if available.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Sent to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson was assigned to the G League's Wisconsin Herd on Wednesday.

Wilson suited up in the Herd's 108-106 double-overtime loss to the Canton Charge, playing 38 minutes and finishing with a team-high 21 points (7-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go with 11 boards, one assist and one block. He's unlikely to make it back to Milwaukee in time for the Bucks' game later Wednesday against the Pacers, but he could join the parent club ahead of its three-game road trip that begins Friday in Los Angeles.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Scores 18 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson notched 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and five blocks during Sunday's 126-117 loss to the Grand Rapids Drive.

Wilson is enduring his third year in the G League but he's played just two games at this level. He is notching 18.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game thus far, but it's clear he's closer to becoming an NBA contributor than a G-League standout for the foreseeable future.

February 23, 2020 01:20 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Sent to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson was assigned to the G League on Sunday.

Wilson had two points and two rebounds in five minutes during Saturday's win over the Sixers, but he'll join the Wisconsin Herd for Sunday's matchup against the Grand Rapids Drive. It's the second time this season the 24-year-old has been assigned to the G League.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Moving to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bucks assigned Wilson to the G League's Wisconsin Herd on Thursday.

Wilson has had trouble finding playing time at center behind Brook and Robin Lopez this season, so he'll head to the Herd and will likely see significant minutes Thursday in the affiliate's game against the College Park Skyhawks. The 2017 first-round pick made six appearances in the G League in 2018-19, but Thursday's outing will be his first with the Herd this season.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Still absent from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Tuesday in the Bucks' 151-131 win over the Wizards.

Though MIlwaukee kicked off its homestand with another resounding win, the Wizards kept the game close enough through three and a half quarters that coach Mike Budenholzer couldn't empty his bench. As a result, Wilson remained a spectator, a common occurrence during his third NBA campaign. He's appeared in only 26 of the Bucks' 47 contests, averaging just 9.0 minutes per game.

January 6, 2020 01:40 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (finger) will play in Monday's game against the Spurs.

As anticipated, Wilson will be available to play Monday. He's struggled to find consistent minutes so far this year and is averaging just 3.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10.4 minutes per game on the season.

January 6, 2020 01:04 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Probable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bucks list Wilson as probable for Monday's game against the Spurs with a sprained finger on his left hand.

The finger issue shouldn't prevent Wilson from suiting up, but he's unlikely to get off the bench unless the contest turns non-competitive. He hasn't been a regular member of coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation for much of the season.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Not part of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (DNP-Coach's Decision) didn't see the floor during Monday's 120-116 loss to the Mavericks.

Wilson saw just seven minutes during Saturday's victory over the Cavaliers, and he has gone scoreless in two of his last three appearances. While Wilson has had a few solid showings this season, he's tough to trust in most formats given his inconsistent role.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Career-high points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson had 19 points (8-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and five boards in 24 minutes of a 132-88 win against the Knicks on Monday.

Wilson posted a career high in points in the game while also posting his season high in minutes of his team's blowout victory. The third-year pro has seen his playing time increase the last two games thanks to starting center Brook Lopez being held out and back-to-back blowouts, but he's been an effective option when on the court. Still, he's likely to see his minutes drop when the contests get tighter. The Bucks play the Pistons on Wednesday.

December 1, 2019 01:40 AM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Scores 11 in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson went for 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes during Saturday's 137-96 win over the Hornets.

Wilson finished with season highs in scoring, assists, threes and minutes while splitting the center minutes with Robin Lopez. Brook Lopez (sore back) was held out of this one, which was likely the main reason why Wilson was relied upon so heavily. If Brook remains sidelined for Monday's matchup versus the Knicks, Wilson could potentially be in line for another night of 20-plus minutes.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Seeing limited action early on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has participated in three of the Bucks' first eight games, totaling just 15 minutes played.

Milwaukee has opted to go with Ersan Ilyasova and Robin Lopez as the primary backup big men, relegating the third-year veteran to a reserve role. Chances are, Wilson could play a more significant role should one of the aforementioned players go down due to injury, but the 23-year-old forward will likely remain on the bench until then.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Plays 10 minutes in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson had four points (2-2 FG), one rebound, and one assist in 10 minutes during Thursday's 118-96 win over the Timberwolves.

Wilson's hamstring prevented him from appearing in the preseason prior to this one. Nevertheless, Wilson had a quiet night and likely faces an uphill battle for minutes on a team with no shortage of serviceable power forwards and centers.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) will play during Thursday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Wilson's hamstring injury has kept him out thus far, but he'll get on the court for Milwaukee's final preseason contest. Wilson appeared in 48 games for the Bucks last season, averaging 5.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 18.4 minutes.

October 16, 2019 03:44 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Wilson has yet to appear in a preseason contest this year, as he continues to deal with a nagging hamstring strain. However, coach Mike Budenholzer mentioned that it's possible Wilson could see the court in their last exhibition tuneup Thursday before the regular season officially starts next week.

Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) will not play Sunday against Washington, Bucks radio play-by-play voice Ted Davis reports.

Wilson is still nursing a strained left hamstring, which has nagged him for the past week. Consider him day-to-day as Thursday's game against Minnesota nears.

October 11, 2019 07:32 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Mavericks.

Wilson continues to battle with a left hamstring strain, and the Bucks have understandably been cautious in the preseason. His next opportunity to return will come Sunday against the Wizards.

October 9, 2019 06:24 PM
Bucks' D.J. Wilson: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) will not play during Wednesday's preseason game against Utah, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

A left hamstring strain will prevent Wilson from making his preseason debut. With Ersan Ilyasova (rest) also on the shelf, Dragan Bender and Thanasis Antetokounmpo could see solid run.
