Fantasy Impact: Allen is heading to Phoenix as part of the blockbuster three-team trade that sent Damian Lillard to Milwaukee. He has been with the Bucks for the past couple of seasons and was a solid role player, averaging over 10 points per game in both seasons. He could end up getting traded again before the season, but if he doesn't, he'll be in line for a solid role off of the bench on a loaded Suns' roster.

Fantasy Impact: Holiday gets sent to Portland with Damian Lillard landing in Milwaukee. He joins a rebuilding Trail Blazers team alongside Anfernee Simons and Shaedon Sharpe in the back court.

Wesley Matthews has agreed to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 36-year-old will join the Hawks' rotation to provide some depth. He averaged 3.4 points and 2.2 rebounds per game while shooting 31.5% from three with the Bucks last season.

Brook Lopez is returning to Milwaukee on a two-year, $48 million deal. The Bucks locked up their starting center. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Lopez had his best season offensively for the Bucks in 2022-23. He was also tied for second in the NBA in blocks per game at 2.5. Lopez might not be lighting up the scoreboard, but his rebounding and blocking ability combined with solid shooting make him a valuable asset for nearly any fantasy roster.

Jevon Carter has agreed on a three-year, $20 million deal with the Chicago Bulls. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Carter should see a bigger role in the Bulls back court, especially with Lonzo Ball (knee) not expected to play next year. He provides strong defense and can hit a shot from the outside as well. He'll be an interesting target for fantasy managers in deeper leagues.

Joe Ingles has agreed on a two-year, $22 million contract with the Orlando Magic. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ingles should provide a veteran presence for a young Magic team. He averaged just under seven points on 41 percent shooting from deep last season and was coming off a torn ACL, so he could take a step forward next year with Orlando.

Khris Middleton has agreed on a new three-year, $102 million deal to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Despite declining his player option, Middleton was still expected to remain with the Bucks. They will look to run it back after falling to the Heat in the first-round of the NBA playoffs this past season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (back) is returning to the lineup for Game 4 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat according to Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Antetokounmpo missed the previous two games while dealing with the back issue for the Bucks, but should see plenty of minutes in a crucial game as the team attempts to avoid a 3-1 deficit.

Fantasy Impact: Connaughton sat out the final few games of the regular season for Milwaukee due to a sprained right ankle, but he'll be a full-go for the playoffs. We have seen him step up in big spots in the playoffs in the past for the Bucks and he'll have his opportunity to do so again this time around.

Bobby Portis Jr. scored 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3P), five rebounds, a block, and a steal in the Bucks' 117-104 win over the 76ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Portis was a bright spot on an otherwise dismal performance by the Bucks bench. Of the players to come off of the bench Joe Ingles was the only other player to score. But a win is a win. Portis and the Bucks will look to extend their win streak to two when they play the Wizards on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Lingering knee soreness initially left Dragic on the injury report for Wednesday's game, but the team has determined that it is minor and that he will play on Wednesday. He doesn't get a lot of work in the team's rotation yet, so his presence doesn't hold a lot of weight for fantasy purposes.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder will miss Wednesday's game as part of the planned injury maintenance for his calf injury. It's not thought to be a major issue, and the team expects him to be back sometime within the next few games. Joe Ingles (knee) will likely get a few extra minutes if the veteran is unavailable against the Pacers.

Meyers Leonard is signing a 10-day contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Leonard last played in early 2021 when he underwent season-ending surgery and then uttered an antisemitic slur on a video game livestream. He could see some minutes while Giannis Antetokounmpo is sidelined, but remains off the fantasy radar.

Serge Ibaka will be waived by the Pacers. He will hit the open market. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ibaka had expressed the desire to be traded out of Milwaukee and got his wish. He will now have full control of where he goes next. He averaged 4.1 points and 2.8 rebounds per game with the Bucks this season.

George Hill is headed to the Indiana Pacers along with a second-round pick. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a part of the three-team deal that sent Jae Crowder to the Bucks and Serge Ibaka to the Pacers. Hill returns to his old home in Indiana and could be in for a larger role than he had in Milwaukee. He has averaged 5 points and 2.5 assists in 19.1 minutes per game this season.

MarJon Beauchamp (knee) is likely to play in Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: A knee injury will leave Beauchamp on Milwaukee's injury report for Thursday's game, but it's not considered serious and he's expected to be active against the Clippers. The rookie hasn't gotten much playing time lately, so he doesn't project to be a good option for fantasy purposes.

A.J. Green (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Indiana Pacers. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Green is a new addition to Milwaukee's injury report, being listed with an ankle injury of some kind that will leave him questionable for Thursday's game. He hasn't gotten much playing time so far this season, so his possible absence wouldn't have a big impact on any notable Bucks' players against the Pacers.
