GREIVIS VASQUEZ (PG)
  • Jul 11 2016, 12:22 PM

    Update: Vasquez has agreed to a one-year contract with the Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez was limited to just 23 appearances for the Bucks last season after undergoing ankle surgery in December, but will hope to nail down a significant role on a Nets team in need of backcourt help. While fellow offseason addition Jeremy Lin will start at point guard, Vasquez projects as Brooklyn's primary backup at the position and should see minutes at shooting guard as well. Through six seasons, Vasquez has averaged 9.0 points and 4.8 assists, but the veteran could benefit from expanded responsibilities with the Nets.

    Update: Vasquez went scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while tallying four assists and two rebounds in 14 minutes during the Bucks' 109-108 overtime victory versus the 76ers on Sunday.

    Analysis: Vasquez continues to play in a limited role for the Bucks, which is hardly surprising considering his recent return from ankle surgery and the fact that Milwaukee is not fighting for a playoff spot. Through five games since re-joining the team, he is averaging one point, 2.6 assists to 1.4 turnovers, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.4 steals in 12 minutes per contest.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) went scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) while contributing three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 13 minutes during the Bucks' 105-94 win against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Analysis: Making his first appearance following ankle surgery in mid-December, Vasquez was fairly quiet Wednesday. However, Jerryd Bayless suffered a hyperextended knee during the game and was unable to return, leaving his status for Friday in question. Now that Giannis Antetokounmpo is the team's true point guard, Vasquez won't be handling the ball much while Antetokounmpo is on the court. As a result, even if Vasquez were to start on Friday, it might be unrealistic to expect gaudy assist totals.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) is available to play against the Suns Wednesday, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez had ankle surgery on Dec. 15, and as a result has missed the last 56 games for the Bucks. While he is available to play Wednesday, there is no guarantee that he will actually reach the court. However, it is obviously good news for Vasquez. He still does not hold any value in season or daily formats for the time being.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Suns, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez has yet to receive medical clearance to return from his ankle injury, but is listed as doubtful rather than out, indicating that there is a chance he could return relatively soon. However, even if he does return it isn't clear that he would have much of a role for the Bucks, with the team giving more minutes at point guard to Giannis Antetokounmpo and Tyler Ennis as the regular season comes to a close.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) went through practice Tuesday, but still hasn't been cleared for game action, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: With only eight games remaining on the Bucks' schedule, Vasquez, who will become a free agent this offseason, is running out of time to show suitors that he's healthy heading into the summer. Given that he's been limited to only 16 games this season and will turn 30 next January, it's unclear if the rebuilding Bucks have any interest in bringing the veteran back in 2016-17. With that in mind, the team may just choose to shut Vasquez down for the campaign and give more opportunities at point guard to the emerging Giannis Antetokounmpo and second-year player Tyler Ennis.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Hornets, Aron Yohannes of BrewHoop.com reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez is nearing the finish line of his recovery from right ankle surgery, as he took part in the Bucks' shootaround Friday morning and drew positive remarks from coach Jason Kidd. While the veteran point guard is trending in the right direction, the Bucks have yet to formally clear Vasquez to play in games. He'll likely need to put in a few more full-contact practices before the team green lights his return.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) is yet to be medically cleared, the Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez was present at shootaround Friday morning, but coach Jason Kidd noted that the point guard, who's been out since mid-December, is still not quite ready. 'He's doing better,' Kidd remarked. 'He's making positive steps going forward. I don't know how many games (he could play). We have to start with the process of being medically cleared before he can play in a game.' With the Bucks all but out of playoff contention, they don't have a ton of motivation to rush Vasquez back, though Vasquez would likely prefer to play at least a few games before the end of the season, considering he's in the final year of his contract.

    Injury: YES

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) announced via his Twitter account that he returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since undergoing ankle surgery in mid-December. 'I was excited to be back on the floor today for my 1st team practice since my surgery,' Vasquez wrote.

    Analysis: Vasquez remains without a firm timetable to return to game action, but this is certainly a step in the right direction. His return to practice falls in line with his comments last week, when he noted that he was four weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery and vowed to return before the end of the season. The Bucks signed Jared Cunningham to a 10-day contract via the NBA's hardship exception Wednesday, which could be an indication that Vasquez isn't expected to be ready for at least 10 days, as the team would now need to clear a roster spot whenever Vasquez is activated. The easiest way to accomplish that, of course, would be simply letting Cunnignham go after his contract expires.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) is hoping to return to practice as early as next week, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez worked out at the Bucks' facility Friday afternoon and he's determined to return to the court this season after undergoing ankle surgery in December. 'I'm four weeks ahead,' Vasquez said. 'I'm probably going to come back very soon, probably next week start practicing with the team.' While that timeline may be a little bit ambitious, Vasquez figures to be back practicing with the team sometime within the next two weeks, though it's unclear how long it may be until he returns to game action. 'It could be another two weeks; it could be another week,' Vasquez said. 'Obviously I'm not going to come back playing 40 minutes. Some guys are playing well, too, so I've got to respect that.' Whenever Vasquez returns, he'll factor into a guard rotation currently featuring Jerryd Bayless, Rashad Vaughn and Tyler Ennis. O.J. Mayo (ankle) and Michael Carter-Williams (hip) have been ruled out for the season, leaving Milwaukee shorthanded in the backcourt. With Giannis Antetokounmpo playing significantly more minutes at the point guard spot, Vasquez could be used off-the-ball more often than he was when healthy earlier this season.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) expects to be ready in three to four weeks, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez had stopped using crutches in early January and hoped to be back by the end of the month after having ankle surgery in mid-December, but it appears that he underestimated his recovery time quite a bit. This new timetable moves his return date to some time in early March.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings, Aron Yohannes of BrewHoop.com reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez underwent surgery on his right ankle in mid-December and was expected to be sidelined for three-to-four months, but after noticing rapid improvement in the rehab process early on, he expressed hope that he'd back by the end of January. That ultimately failed to materialize, and it's still a bit murky whether or not he suffered a setback or is still in close range of a return. Vasquez was only averaging 7.1 points and 4.4 assists over 22.6 minutes when he was healthy earlier this season, so it's probably not worth the hassle to stash him in anticipation of a comeback.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) won't be available for Thursday's game against the Grizzlies, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez was previously optimistic that he'd be available by the end of January, but he's already being ruled out Thursday, and it seems unlikely that he'll be able to play in the Bucks' final game of the month Friday against the Heat. Though Vasquez is no longer using crutches, the Bucks haven't indicated if he's even resumed basketball-related activities, so it wouldn't be a surprise if his absence lingered deep into February.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) underwent successful surgery to remove a bone spur in his foot on Tuesday and is expected to miss roughly 3-to-4 months, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez hadn't played since Nov. 27 and after weighing his options, decided to have surgery on his ankle. Coach Jason Kidd said it will keep him out between three or four months, which means he could be out for the rest of the regular season. With Jerryd Bayless (ankle) also sidelined, Michael Carter-Williams and O.J. Mayo should take the majority of the minutes at point guard, while Tyler Ennis may see a bump in minutes as well.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) won't travel with the Bucks on their four-game road swing that begins Tuesday in Los Angeles, Andrew Gruman reports.

    Analysis: Both Vasquez and Jerryd Bayless will remain in Milwaukee while the team heads West for four games against the Lakers, Clippers, Warriors, and Suns. As such, the earliest Vasquez could be back on the court is Dec. 23, when the Bucks return home to face the 76ers. In the meantime, Milwaukee will continue to roll with O.J. Mayo and Michael Carter-Williams absorbing the vast majority of minutes at point guard.

    Injury: YES

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Clippers.

    Analysis: This will be the sixth straight game Vasquez has missed due to sore right ankle. Earlier in the week head coach Jason Kidd said he's hopeful that Vasquez would resume running sometime this week. The Bucks are wearing thin at point guard, with Jerryd Bayless (ankle) also out. Look for O.J. Mayo and Michael Carter-Williams to pick up the slack Wednesday night.

    Injury: YES

  • Dec 06 2015, 10:41 AM

    Update: Coach Jason Kidd said he's hopeful that Vasquez (ankle) will resume running within the next few days, Aron Yohannes of BrewHoop.com reports.

    Analysis: Vasquez has missed the Bucks' last five games with the injury, and while this latest report offers some encouragement, it doesn't appear as though the point guard will be ready to play Monday against the Trail Blazers. The Bucks will see how Vasquez progresses in workouts during the week before determining when he might be back.

    Injury: YES

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) will not play Saturday versus New York, Aron Yohannes of Brewhoop.com reports.

    Analysis: This will be the fifth consecutive game missed for Vasquez. Milwaukee is very shallow in the backcourt right now, so if he was good to play he probably would be active. His next opportunity to play will be Monday versus Portland.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) will sit out Friday's matchup in Detroit, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports

    Analysis: Vasquez injured his ankle on Nov. 27, and his missed Milwaukee's last three games. Sitting out Friday will make it four straight. His next opportunity to suit up will be Saturday versus the Knicks.

    Update: Vasquez (ankle) is out against the Spurs on Wednesday, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: This will be the third game in a row that Vasquez will have to sit out due to the ankle, forcing Jason Kidd to rely more on Michael Carter-Williams and Tyler Ennis behind starter Jerryd Bayless again. Vasquez's next opportunity to return will come Friday against the Pistons.

    Injury: YES
