Bucks Lose Michael Carter-Williams For the Season

Michael Carter-Williams hasn't played for the Milwaukee Bucks since February 25 and he won't play again until next season.  The Bucks PG will undergo hip surgery and miss the rest of the NBA season.

MCW averaged five less fantasy points per game this season compared to 2014-15 as both his scoring and assists total are down.

Milwaukee has seen Giannis Antetokounmpo running the offense, leading to triple-doubles, so his fantasy owners are loving this as he has nearly doubled his season average fantasy points per game over the last week.

At 19% owned in Yahoo leagues, Jerryd Bayless is worth picking up as he played 31 minutes per game last week.  Even though O.J. Mayo jumped into the starting lineup, he has scored just 15 points in the Bucks last four contests, five threes.

Eric Gordon broke his finger on Sunday and the New Orleans Pelicans guard is also likely to miss the rest of the regular season.

Jrue Holiday owners will be happy to see him return to the starting lineup.  Norris Cole (26%) will see a bump in minutes but he is battling a back injury right now.  When healthy, he can provide your fantasy basketball team with some offense.

Manu Ginobili is just 26% owened Yahoo and returned this weekend, but the Spurs do a good job keeping their veterans minutes limited so be careful if he is your add.

If Evan Turner (48%) is available, he is capable of filling up the stat sheet in many different ways.

Gary Harris (39%) is a decent add as well for those looking for 3ptm and steals.

Mario Chalmers (30%) has scored in double figures in each of the Grizzlies last five games and is capable of picking up five assists now and again. Fantasy Basketball Bucks Michael  Carter-Williams MCW Injury
