Milwaukee Bucks small forward Khris Middleton shot a nice 10-for-16 from the field and 4-for-7 from downtown on his way to 24 points in Thursday's win over Philadelphia. He completed his night with five assists, one rebound, one steal and two turnovers. Middleton got off to a very hot start offensively and it was a good scoring performance, but he sadly didn't provide much else besides assists. He will get to make up for it in Saturday's rematch with the Sixers. The Bucks have been involved in a lot of high-scoring games lately, so it's a good matchup to target for DFS players.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo had a game-high 27 points with 16 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in Thursday's 124-117 win over Joel Embiid and the Sixers. He finished with 8-for-15 shooting from the field and with a 10-for-18 record at the line while posting a plus-25 rating. Giannis has missed most of the month, and he was quiet in his first outing back from injury, but it's been business as usual since then. He will look to crush it against Philly again on Saturday.
Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez finished with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's win over the Hawks. Lopez now has at least 18 points and eight rebounds in the past two games. The veteran is averaging 11.5 points and five rebounds per game this season but he hasn't been the most consistent with his daily numbers. As of now, Lopez is not the strongest fantasy option as a result. Keeping up his mini-streak will be difficult as the Bucks face a decent Grizzlies defense up next on Saturday.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is suiting up for Thursday's game against Atlanta. Guard Donte Divincenzo won't be joining him on the court, as he is set to miss his first game with a sore toe. Antetokounmpo makes his return to the hardwood after a six-game absence against a favorable opponent in the Hawks, who surrendered a 27-14-8 line to him earlier this season. Still, the superstar forward might have some rust to shake off after some time away from game action.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. He sat out of Wednesday's game and could sit out here as well for precautionary reasons. The Bucks don't have much of an incentive to put Antetokounmpo out there at less than 100 percent. Bobby Portis and Pat Connaughton would see increased roles without Antetokounmpo out there. Portis has more upside, but both could be possible streaming options.
