Top Bucks News

  • Bucks' George Hill: Available if necessary

    Hill (not injury related) is expected to be in uniform and available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Hill hasn't practiced with his new squad since being traded from the Cavs on Friday, so even if he does enter the game his minutes figure to be limited.

  • Bucks' George Hill: Game-time call Sunday

    Hill will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Raptors, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Hill's status should clear up closer to tipoff. The guard hasn't had a chance to practice with the Bucks since joining the team via trade Friday, so even if he's active, he doesn't figure to play a prominent role right away.

  • Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova: Plays 13 minutes in return

    Ilyasova returned from a concussion Friday against the Warriors and finished with two points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3PT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

    Ilyasova struggled from the floor after missing two of the last three games, missing six of his seven field goals, while also committing two turnovers, including a questionable offensive foul in the fourth quarter.

  • Bucks' Eric Bledsoe: Plays thief for four steals in loss

    Bledsoe tallied 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four assists and four steals across 29 minutes in Friday's 105-95 loss to the Warriors.

    Bledsoe's five turnovers restricted his evening somewhat, but he aptly directed the offense and stayed competitive against the Warriors for the majority of the evening. After a sub-par game against Chicago, he's rattled off three respectable games with an average of 22.7 points and 5.0 assists over that span.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Returns to post 10 points in loss

    Middleton logged 10 points (4-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds and a steal across 27 minutes in Friday's 105-95 loss to the Warriors.

    It was a confusing 48-hour period for Middleton, who was a surprising late scratch on Wednesday and the reasons were only reported as a personal matter, without any specifics. He did not show up on the injury report and played as expected on Friday, though his participation was limited to 27 minutes. Owners should keep tabs on Middleton's status in the coming days, as his numbers seemed to be adversely affected during this difficult week.

  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Grabs 15 rebounds in loss

    Antetokounmpo turned in 22 points (8-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-9 FT) 15 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 34 minutes in Friday's 105=95 loss to the Warriors.

    Antetokounmpo's talents were utilized best in containing Kevin Durant on Friday, as he held the All-Star to a season=low 10 points and forced a season-high seven turnovers as well. Antetojounmpo is at the top of the league in several categories and despite the loss, he showed that Milwaukee has what it takes to keep up with the 2017-18 champs.

  • Bucks' Jason Smith: Dealt to Bucks

    Smith, along with a future second-round pick, was traded to the Bucks in exchange for Sam Dekker, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After trading John Henson to the Cavaliers, the Bucks seem to be interested in bolstering the frontcourt. Smith has appeared in 12 games for the Wizards this season, averaging 3.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 10.8 minutes. He's also 4-for-10 from beyond the arc.

  • Bucks' Sam Dekker: Dealt to Milwaukee

    Dekker (ankle), along with George Hill, was traded to the Bucks on Friday in exchange for Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson and two draft picks, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports.

    Dekker will come home to Wisconsin, where he was born and spent his collegiate career. Once he's healthy, he'll likely only have a minor role with the team.

  • Bucks' George Hill: Traded to Milwaukee

    Hill was traded to the Bucks on Friday in exchange for Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson, a future first-round pick and a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Hill will be eligible to play after he takes his physical, which is expected to be Monday, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports. The Bucks play the Cavaliers that day.

    The Bucks, in a win-now move, have dumped the salaries of Dellavedova and John Henson, plus picks, to bolster the team's backcourt depth. Hill has played just 13 games this season for the Cavaliers due to injury, but has averaged 10.8 points, 2.8 assists and 2.1 rebounds while shooting an efficient 51.4 percent from the field and 46.4 percent from beyond the arc. It's not immediately clear if he'll be able to reach the 26.5 minutes he was seeing in Cleveland, but it's possible Tony Snell, Pat Connaughton and Donte DiVincenzo have their roles reduced.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Available to play Friday

    Middleton is available to play in Friday's game against the Warriors, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

    As expected following his participation in shootaround, Middleton will officially be active and in uniform for Friday's rematch with the Warriors. Middleton missed Wednesday's game against the Pistons due to a personal matter but should be a full go at home Friday night.

  • Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova: Upgraded to probable

    Ilyasova (concussion) has been upgraded to probable Friday against the Warriors, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Ilyasova has been plagued with injuries the past two weeks, the most recent one being a concussion. It's probable though that the Turkish veteran will be able to play, but will ultimately be a game time decision for the Bucks before Friday's game against Golden State.
