Milwaukee Bucks

Eastern Central

Marvin Williams produced four points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), nine rebounds and one block in 23 minutes against high-powered Houston on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams (groin) returned to the court in a big spot on Sunday against the surging Rockets. He outperformed his statistical averages this season even though the results weren't dazzling. He did flaunt his authority on the glass with nine boards. Still, Williams hasn't been on anyone's radar all season and this performance won't be one that turns heads.

Wesley Matthews notched three points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt) and two rebounds in 27 minutes against Houston on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact: Wesley Matthews hit a new low under the primetime lights against the Rockets on Sunday. Going a dismal one-for-six from the field, Matthews was decidedly useless from a fantasy perspective. He recorded two defensive rebounds but canceled them out with two turnovers. Owners would surely be disappointed with this outing against the defensively-challenged Rockets. Hopefully this convinces owners to let Matthews ride the bench moving forward, as he has just nine points since the restart.

Brook Lopez provided 23 points (9-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks Sunday's 120-116 loss to Houston.

Fantasy Impact: Lopez recorded his fourth double-double and matched a season-high in rebounds in Sunday's loss. The 32-year-old has swatted eight shots in his last two games and continues to provide solid production. He is averaging 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.5 blocks across 63 games. Lopez will look to build on his solid performance in Tuesday's matchup against the Nets.

Khris Middleton amassed 27 points (10-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 boards, four assists, and one steal across 34 minutes in Sunday's 120-116 loss to Houston.

Fantasy Impact: Middelton logged his fifth double-double of the year, but did turn the ball over six times in Sunday's loss. Despite the turnovers, he continues to flourish as the secondary option and on the Bucks offense. Middleton is averaging 21.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 2.4 triples across 57 games this season. The 28-year-old will look keep things rolling in Tuesday's contest against the Nets.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a game-high 38 points (14-25 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-9 FG) 18 boards, eight assists, and one block in 33 minutes of a 120-116 loss to Houston on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Giannis logged in another impressive performance in Sunday's loss, but turned the ball over with less than 20 seconds over to hurt the Bucks chances of taking the lead. He continues to dominate night in and night out. The reigning MVP is averaging 29.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks across 59 games this season. Giannis will look to keep up his strong play in Tuesday's matchup against the Nets.

Pat Connaughton has been ruled put of the Bucks game Sunday against the Houston Rockets. Connaughton has been cleared after testing positive for COVID-19, but the Bucks are not playing Connaughton until they believe he is in game shape. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Connaughton is a solid role player for the Bucks with some good three-point range. Once Connaughton is able to join the Bucks for their game day lineup, he could provide a good spark off the bench. Unless there is an injury that gets Connaughton into the starting lineup, he might not have too much fantasy value. His status is worth monitoring though, as he could have some use as a low salary option in daily fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: We should see Donte DiVincenzo start at the point once again Sunday with Bledsoe on the sidelines. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton will continue to see heavy usage in a pace-up game against a poor defensive team in the Houston Rockets.

Robin Lopez scored nine points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT) along with one rebound and one assist in just 14 minutes in Milwaukee's 119-112 win over the Boston Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Lopez has no fantasy value as he will continue to play limited minutes off the bench. There should be other options available in any format.

George Hill records seven points (2-5 FG, 3-4 FT) four rebounds, four assists and one steal across 27 minutes in the Bucks’ 119-112 win over the Boston Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Hill’s limited scoring won’t make him fantasy relevant. There are other options for PG including his teammate Donte DiVincenzo.

Category: Game Recaps

Donte DiVincenzo scooped up 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes against Boston on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: DiVincenzo didn't exactly set the world on fire on Friday night, but he did put up a respectable stat-line with his well-rounded production. He's no doubt a placeholder for the missing Eric Bledsoe who will cut into his minutes upon his return. For now, however, DiVincenzo could be a deep sleeper at a bargain price in DFS.

Ersan Ilyasova bagged seven points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3pt, 4-4 FT) and four rebounds in 14 minutes of floor time against the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Ilyasova's limited exposure continues to limit his fantasy upside. Barring an injury, he's going to continue to be a non-factor within Milwaukee's vaunted offense. Given that players have been off for months, anything can happen, however, don't put too much stock in the power-forward's production as the playoffs loom.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo was evaluated for a concussion after falling headfirst to the floor trying to defend a dunk. (Source: Chris Lavinio on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Antetokounmpo tried to defend a dunk from Drew Eubanks and fell headfirst to the floor. He was evaluated for a concussion and is currently day-to-day. The 28-year-old plays a limited role off the bench and is not regular part of the Bucks rotation. Antetokounmpo averaged 2.5 points, 1.1 rebounds, 0.5 assists across 18 games this season.

Frank Mason III has been named the 2019-20 NBA G League MVP, officially ending the Raptors 905’s MVP streak. (Source: Blake Murphy on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Signing a two-way contract with the Bucks last July, Mason had a phenomenal season with the Herd in which he averaged 26.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game. He shot 50.4 percent from the field, 42.5 percent from beyond the arc, and 81.5 percent from the “charity” line. The Herd went on to achieve the league’s best record of 33-10. Mason appeared in six games for the Bucks this season, averaging 2.3 points, 1.8 assists, and 1.3 rebounds per game. Although he shows promise, the road to Mason having a consistent role in the Buck’s stacked rotation is a long one and significantly limits his fantasy appeal at this time.

D.J. Wilson racked up ten points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3PT), nine rebounds, and one assist in 21 minutes off the bench Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson has only seen game action in four of Milwaukee's last ten games and has only seen 20+ minutes on the floor four times this season. The former first-round pick has flashed potential in the past but is too buried on this depth chart to have any fantasy relevance.

Sterling Brown put up 16 points (6-16 FG, 3-8 3PT, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one block over 36 minutes of play Monday night in Denver.

Fantasy Impact: Brown took advantage of the start by putting up a season-high point total against good competition in Denver but it came on a night where the Bucks rested the majority of their usual rotation. Barring an injury in front of him, Brown is unlikely to have much fantasy impact down the home stretch of the season.

Kyle Korver supplied 23 points (8-15 FG, 5-11 3PT, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes off the bench Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: The Bucks rolled out a skeleton lineup Monday with most of their usual rotation staying on the bench in Denver. Korver is always capable of getting hot from deep off the bench but don't expect this kind of production on a nightly basis from the veteran sharpshooter.

Dragan Bender plans to sign a 10-day contract with the Warriors on Sunday after being released by the Milwaukee Bucks on February 10. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bender, a former lottery pick of the Phoenix Suns in 2016, joins Marquese Chriss as the next Warrior reclamation project. Bender averaged 3.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists across seven games this season but can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
