Top Bucks News

  • Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova: Won't play Wednesday

    Ilyasova (nose) is listed as out for Wednesday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    Ilyasova is slated to miss a second straight game Tuesday. The Bucks have generally opted to go small when Ilyasova misses time. From a minutes perspective, Milwaukee's main beneficiary when Ilyasova is out is Pat Connaughton. The guard sees a bump of 6.2 minutes per game (for an average of 24.3) with Ilyasova absent.

  • Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon: Questionable Wednesday

    Brogdon (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    Brogdon is in danger of missing his third straight game Wednesday. During his first absence, Pat Connaughton drew the start at shooting guard. During Brogdon's second absence, Tony Snell filled the position. Both players should continue seeing expanded roles if Brogdon is sidelined once more.

  • Bucks' Eric Bledsoe: Drops 17 points Monday

    Bledsoe produced 17 points (7-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-5 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Monday's 107-104 win over the Pistons.

    Bledsoe posted his best assist total in the last 10 contests Monday night, as he efficiently passed the ball around to avoid taking contested shots. His ability to limit turnovers as a point guard also boasts well for his future output and he should see regular run going forward.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Collects 22 points Monday

    Middleton posted 22 points (7-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six assists, two rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Monday's 107-104 win over the Pistons.

    Middleton returned from a minor absence to play Monday night against the Pistons, leading the team in minutes for the game. His scoring is a part of his game, however it remains to be seen if he can keep other numbers afloat during his time on the court.

  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Scores team-high 32 points

    Antetokounmpo tallied 32 points (15-21 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 31 minutes in Monday's 107-104 win over the Pistons.

    Averaging 38 points over the last two games, Antetokounmpo has been nothing short of spectacular offensively, while keeping up his defensive grit. Having failed to record a game with under 10 rebounds and five assists in the last five contests, Antetokounmpo is as reliable as they come.

  • Bucks' Tony Snell: Records 12 points Monday

    Snell totaled 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 29 minutes in Monday's 107-104 win over the Pistons.

    Snell tied a season-high scoring and set a new season-high for rebounds Monday night, and the Bucks needed every bit of his performance for the win. Given these numbers are season-highs for Snell, it's hard to see him playing like this on a nightly basis going forward.

  • Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon: Ruled out Monday

    Contrary to a previous report, Brogdon (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pistons, according to Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    While Brogdon was originally listed as available for Monday's game, the Bucks will play it safe and keep him out for a second consecutive contest while he nurses a sore hamstring. It doesn't sound like Brogdon suffered any sort of setback, as coach Mike Budenholzer said the team is simply trying to be "aggressively cautious" when it comes to the guard's health. Brogdon's next chance to play will come Wednesday against the Pelicans. In the meantime, Sterling Brown, Tony Snell and Pat Connaughton could all see an uptick in minutes in his absence Monday.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Good to go Monday

    Middleton (finger) is available to play Monday against the Pistons, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Middleton has been cleared to rejoin the starting five after missing Friday's game against the Cavaliers with a finger injury. While Middleton has struggled of late, he's still averaging a solid 17.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.2 steals across 30.8 minutes on the year.

  • Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon: Available Monday

    Brogdon (hamstring) is available to play Monday against the Pistons, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    As expected, Brogdon has been cleared to rejoin the lineup after missing Friday's game against the Cavaliers with a sore hamstring. Look for the 26-year-old to immediately reclaim his spot in the starting five. Through 27 games this season, Brogdon is averaging 15.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists across 30.0 minutes.

  • Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova: Listed as out Monday

    Ilyasova (nose) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    The Bucks haven't officially commented on Ilyasova's status, but it sounds like the he'll miss Monday's contest with a nose contusion. Assuming Ilyasova doesn't play, Thon Maker would be a candidate to see increased run.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Probable to play Monday

    Middleton (finger) is considered probable to play Monday against the Pistons.

    This comes via the team's initial injury report, which implies that Middleton will return after missing Friday's game with a finger injury. The issue never looked to be anything serious, and it's likely his absence was simply a precaution with an inferior opponent on the schedule.

  • Bucks' Malcolm Brogdon: Expected back Monday

    Brogdon (hamstring) is expected to play Monday against the Pistons.

    The Bucks haven't officially commented on Brogdon's status, but he's listed as probable on the initial injury report after missing Friday's game against the Cavs due to a sore hamstring. Expect Brogdon to move back into the starting five at his usual off-guard spot.

  • Bucks' Donte DiVincenzo: Three steals, two blocks in win

    DiVincenzo recorded six points (3-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, three steals, and two blocks in 23 minutes during Friday's 114-102 win over the Cavaliers.

    DiVincenzo matched his best steal and block totals while earning 20-plus minutes for the first time since Nov. 6. The rookie earned at least 20 minutes in seven of the first 10 contests to begin the season, but his role has been much more inconsistent of late. Given that the injuries recently suffered by Khris Middleton (finger) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) don't appear too serious, it's unlikely DiVincenzo can be relied on in most leagues.

  • Bucks' George Hill: Plays 24 minutes in Friday's win

    Hill had two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 114-102 win over the Cavaliers.

    Hill struggled offensively but earned the most minutes among the five reserves who saw the floor. Khris Middleton (finger) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) were both sidelined for this one, but Hill will likely surpass the likes of fill-in starters Pat Connaughton and Tony Snell (in terms of playing time) once he settles in and gets up to speed.

  • Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Career-high 44 points in win

    Antetokounmpo accumulated 44 points (14-19 FG, 16-21 FT), 14 rebounds, eight assists, and two blocks in 38 minutes during Friday's 114-102 win over the Cavaliers.

    Antetokounmpo matched his career high scoring total while attempting more free throws than field goals and falling two dimes shy of a triple-double. It was a spectacular all-around performance from Antetokounmpo, who continues to build a strong MVP case.

  • Bucks' Pat Connaughton: Well-rounded line in Friday's win

    Connaughton tallied six points (2-8 FG, 2-7 3Pt), seven rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 30 minutes during Friday's 114-102 win over the Cavaliers.

    Connaughton drew the start with Khris Middleton (finger) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) sidelined, and the 25-year-old wing finished with a season high in assists while swiping two steals for the third time through 23 appearances. Connaughton is managing career-high per-game averages across the board. Nevertheless, given the combination of the team's depth and Connaughton's inconsistent role, he's only worth targeting in deeper leagues.
