Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Cleared to play
Antetokounmpo (ankle) will start Sunday's game against Cleveland.
The Bucks took the decision down to the last minute, but the MVP candidate will take the floor Sunday after being held out of two contests earlier in the week. Antetokounmpo rolled his ankle against the Sixers a week ago, but it doesn't look to be anything that'll hamper him long-term.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Pau Gasol: Out for a month
Gasol (ankle) is expected to be out a month as he tends to a left ankle injury, Malika Andrews of ESPN reports.
Gasol has only played in three games since joining the Bucks and has missed the last six contests due to the ankle injury. With Nikola Mirotic (thumb) out for two-to-four weeks as well, Milwaukee will have to rely heavily on Brook Lopez, D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova in the front court to close out the regular season. Look for more updates on Gasol's status to come as the playoffs near.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Questionable Sunday
Antetokounmpo (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Cavaliers.
Antetokounmpo has missed two of the past three games due to a sprained right ankle, and the injury is apparently still giving him some discomfort. He'll likely go through pregame warmups before determining if he'll take the court.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Sterling Brown: Plays 15 minutes off bench
Brown made his return to action Friday against Miami, playing 15 minutes off the bench and finishing with four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3PT, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and two assists.
Brown missed nearly an entire calendar month with a wrist issue, but he was back on the floor and saw close to his usual allotment of minutes off the bench. With Nikola Mirotic (thumb) out through at least the end of the regular season, Brown could see a slight bump in minutes down the stretch, but it's highly unlikely that he'll be a difference-maker in fantasy leagues....

Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Pulls down 10 rebounds in win
Connaughton totaled six points (2-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes during Friday's 116-87 victory over the Heat.
Connaughton attempted just five field-goals, ending with six points in 28 minutes. He salvaged his line somewhat with 10 boards but the playing time is certainly the most encouraging sign. He has now played at least 28 minutes in three consecutive games and appears as though he is going to figure quite prominently in the rotation for the rest of the regular season. He should be on the radar in competitive leagues as a three-point streamer.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Dominates in return
Antetokounmpo ended with 27 points (12-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 116-87 victory over the Heat.
Antetokounmpo returned after missing the last two games with an ankle injury, putting on a show as the Bucks smashed the Heat. He was able to get some rest down the stretch with the game moving into garbage time, and all signs point to him being fine for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers. Both he and James Harden are going to continue to battle it out for the leagues MVP award and as long as he is on the floor, the production should be spectacular.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Khris Middleton: Another double-double in victory
Middleton finished with 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 10 assists, eight rebounds, and one steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 116-87 victory over the Heat.
Middleton recorded his third straight double-double Friday, an impressive effort after managing just four double-doubles all season prior to this streak. His line could have been far better here, however, the game was well in control meaning he was able to sit down the stretch. He has stepped up in the absence of Malcolm Brogdon (foot) and Nikola Mirotic (thumb) and should be in for a big finish to the season.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Will play Friday
Antetokounmpo (ankle) has been cleared to play Friday against the Heat, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
As expected, the MVP candidate will play following a two-game absence. In March, he's averaging 30.1 points, 13.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists and a combined 2.3 blocks/steals in 32.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' George Hill: Cleared for Friday
Hill (groin) will play Friday against the Heat, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bucks' Sterling Brown: Will play Friday
Brown (wrist) will play Friday against the Heat, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bucks' George Hill: Probable Friday
Hill (groin) is probable Friday against the Heat.
Hill missed Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers due to left groin soreness, but he should be back in the fold Friday. With Malcolm Brogdon (out) sidelined for the rest of the regular season and probably into the first round of the playoffs, Hill's role could expand from here on out. Since February, the veteran is averaging 4.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 16.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less

Bucks' Sterling Brown: Probable Friday
Brown (wrist) is probable for Friday's matchup against the Heat.
Right wrist soreness has kept Brown on the shelf since Feb. 25, but it appears he'll be making his return Friday. His return comes at an important time, as the Bucks have lost Malcolm Brogdon (foot) for the remainder of the regular season, and likely into the playoffs. In 48 appearances this season, Brown has averaged 5.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 16.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
