Milwaukee Bucks small/power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) has been tagged as questionable to make his return to action for Thursdays contest against the Boston Celtics. Antetokounmpo has missed the past two games after getting MRI results that confirmed that his left knee injury isnt serious, which has paved the way for myriad Bucks players to step up in his absence. With the team comfortably in first place in the Eastern Conference, theyre unlikely to play Antetokounmpo unless both parties are confident that he is 100 percent. Check back closer to tip-off to get a better read on his status, but Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe would likely be in line to benefit if the reigning MVP is held out.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) was able to get through Wednesday's practice without any issues. He was able to get through a full contact practice, but the team hasn't cleared him for Thursday's game yet. However, it sounds like a day-to-day issue, so Antetokounmpo shouldn't be sidelined for too long. Khris Middleton and Donte Divincenzo should be reliable DFS options if Antetokounmpo misses Thursday's game.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe (knee) is expected to suit up for Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics. He was unable to play in Monday's game due to a right knee issue. Bledsoe was able to get through Wednesday's practice without any issues, so he should be back to his normal role on Thursday. Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is banged up, so Bledsoe could become a strong DFS option if Antetokounmpo sits out. Fantasy owners will need to check back closer to tip-off for more information.
Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill (groin) was able to get through Wednesday's practice without any issues. He missed Monday's game due to a groin issue, but is expected to return for Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics. Eric Bledsoe (knee) is banged up, but expected to be fine for Thursday. Hill will likely play his normal role of around 20 minutes, so he'll only be a deep league streaming option.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown posted a season-high 16 points in the 109-95 loss to the Nuggets on Monday. He also added six rebounds, three assists, and one block in a season-high 36 minutes of play. The 25-year-old had increased minutes in the contest due to Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) being injured, along with guys like Brook Lopez and Khris Middleton not playing possibly due to a coaching decision. Therefore, the SMU product scored in double digits for the first time since Feb. 12. Nevertheless, Brown should not receive fantasy attention due to him capitalizing only because of a depleted lineup. He averages 4.7 points and 14.3 minutes per game.
