MILES PLUMLEE (C)
  • Jul 18 2016, 09:18 AM

    Update: Plumlee signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Bucks on Monday, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

    Analysis: Plumlee is coming off a season in Milwaukee where he appeared in 61 games, starting 14, and averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds over 14.3 minutes. The deal may indicate that the Bucks are going to continue to look to move center Greg Monroe via trade, in which case Plumlee would see an elevated role either as a starting center or the backup behind John Henson. Should Milwaukee elect to keep Monroe, however, Plumlee's role in the Bucks' rotation will likely remain minimal barring any serious injuries.

    Update: Plumlee will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Sixers, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: Greg Monroe is getting the night off for rest, so Plumlee is expected to move into the starting lineup in his place. Plumlee is averaging 9.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 0.4 blocks over 19 minutes during his last five games, but could see his production across the board rise with extra playing time available.

    Update: Plumlee posted 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 20 minutes during the Bucks' 124-109 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

    Analysis: Plumlee has seen 20 minutes or more in three straight games while scoring in double figures during three of the last four. After averaging 6.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in 19 minutes per appearance in March, Plumlee is managing 11 points and 5.5 rebounds in 20 minutes through the first four bouts of April. Even still, with the Bucks being eliminated from playoff contention, coach Jason Kidd might opt to mix things up over the final three games of 2015-16.

    Update: Plumlee provided 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 24 minutes during the Bucks' 114-108 win versus the Heat on Wednesday.

    Analysis: Plumlee committed three fouls and three turnovers, but played more minutes than starter Greg Monroe. Plumlee actually saw more minutes off the bench than he had been in most games as a starter lately, but John Henson (back) could be ready to return to the lineup soon and steal away some of Plumlee's playing time. Through five March games, Plumlee is averaging 8.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in 19 minutes per matchup.

    Update: Plumlee will move back to the bench Wednesday against Miami.

    Analysis: Despite getting the starting nod of late, Plumlee still only averaged 18 minutes on the court over his last four games while starting at center over Greg Monroe. Plumlee has averaged 12 minutes per game this season after 43 outings and his return to the bench will likely coincide with him seeing similar minutes to that average.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Plumlee tallied nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and one block across 28 minutes in Monday's 128-121 win over the Rockets.

    Analysis: Plumlee started at center for the eighth game in a row, but this was the first time during that stretch that he saw more court time than Greg Monroe (10 points, six rebounds in 20 minutes). Much of that likely had to do with Monroe picking up five fouls, so Plumlee shouldn't be expected to outpace Monroe for court time many more times over the course of the season.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Plumlee recorded six points (3-6 FG), five rebounds, and one block across 18 minutes in Tuesday's 112-111 win over the Celtics.

    Analysis: Though Plumlee surprisingly got the call as the starting center over Greg Monroe, it was Monroe who ended up finishing the contest after he produced 29 points (13-21 FG, 3-6 FT) and 12 boards across 30 minutes. Even if this lineup arrangement continues over the next handful of games, Monroe is still likely to dominate the minutes at center, so Plumlee won't stand to gain much fantasy value by starting.

    Update: Plumlee will start at center Tuesday against the Celtics, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports

    Analysis: Coach Jason Kidd is making the surprise change from Greg Monroe to Plumlee without much rationale, which means that Plumlee could still be in store for limited minutes despite the promotion. In fact, Plumlee hasn't played more than 24 minutes in any game this season and even the absence of John Henson (back) doesn't mean Plumlee will see abundant opportunities.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Plumlee was held without a point (0-1 FG), three rebounds, and two blocks over 13 minutes in Monday's loss to the Kings.

    Analysis: Plumlee has served as the backup center in each of the Bucks' last three games while John Henson has been sidelined by back spasms. Coach Jason Kidd has only called on Plumlee when Greg Monroe requires a breather, which has limited Plumlee to no more than 19 minutes in any of those contests. Plumlee will likely drop out of the rotation once Henson is cleared to return.

    Update: Plumlee (knee) will be available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Knicks, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Analysis: Plumlee was unavailable during the team's win Friday over the Mavericks due to a sore knee, but a long-term absence was never on the table for the big man. Though the injury doesn't figure to limit his playing time, Plumlee has been an inconsistent member of the rotation of late, so it's far from guaranteed that he'll see the floor at any point if Sunday's game remains competitive.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Plumlee was a late scratch Friday versus the Mavericks with a sore knee.

    Analysis: Plumlee was not questionable heading into the contest, so his late scratch came as a surprise. He did not play in the teams previous game due to a coaches decision also. His next opportunity to return to action will be Sunday versus the Knicks.

    Injury: YES

    Injury Status: OUT

  • Dec 21 2015, 09:56 AM

    Update: Plumlee (coach's decision) didn't play in Sunday's 101-95 win over the Suns.

    Analysis: Though Greg Monroe saw his playing time limited Sunday by foul trouble, the Bucks opted to use John Henson to pick up the remaining spare minutes at center, leaving no room for Plumlee to enter the rotation. Plumlee had exceeded double-digit scoring in two of the Bucks' previous three games, but with his playing time set to plummet significantly now that Monroe is healthy, Plumlee doesn't offer much fantasy value.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Dec 18 2015, 18:32 PM

    Update: Plumlee will return to his role off the bench Friday.

    Analysis: Plumlee started the Bucks previous game on Wednesday, but will return to the bench Friday in Golden State. Greg Monroe's surprising return is the cause for this demotion. Plumlee should see a significant dip in playing time.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Dec 17 2015, 10:19 AM

    Update: Plumlee played 22 minutes while starting at center in Wednesday's 103-90 loss to the Clippers, producing two points (1-4 FG), three rebounds, and a blocked shot.

    Analysis: Plumlee actually saw two minutes fewer than he did while coming off the bench the previous night against the Lakers, and wasn't especially active during his time on the court. Still, Plumlee ended up seeing comparable playing time to fellow center John Henson (21 minutes), and although it's possible coach Jason Kidd could switch up the starting assignment in the Bucks' next game Friday in Golden State, expect the minutes to be fairly evenly distributed between the two players while Greg Monroe (knee) is out.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Plumlee will draw the start Wednesday in Los Angeles, Dan Woike of The Orange County Register reports.

    Analysis: Plumlee is coming off a solid performance Wednesday night, posting ten points and eight boards in 24 minutes. He had not played in the previous six games, but Greg Monroe was out, and remains out Wednesday. John Henson was expected to get the start, but head coach Jason Kidd has decided to go with Plumlee.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Dec 16 2015, 13:31 PM

    Update: Plumlee rejoined the rotation in Tuesday's 113-95 loss to the Lakers, finishing with 10 points (5-7 FG), eight rebounds, and a block across 24 minutes.

    Analysis: With Greg Monroe (knee) being ruled out shortly before the contest, John Henson entered the starting lineup at center, while Plumlee moved up in the pecking order to the top backup spot at the position. The appointment allowed Plumlee to see his first game action since Dec. 2, after previously going unused in the Bucks' last six games. Monroe is ruled out again for Wednesday's date with the Clippers and could be sidelined for a few games beyond that, which should allow Plumlee to pick up some light playing time over the next week.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Plumlee was a DNP-CD in Sunday's 87-82 loss to the Hornets.

    Analysis: Plumlee continues to see very limited minutes (6.5 MPG) in his backup role to Greg Monroe. He doesn't have much value coming behind Monroe as he seems to eat a lot of the minutes in most games. Also, Plumlee isn't a major offensive threat when he's on the court anyway.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Nov 12 2015, 08:43 AM

    Update: Plumlee was a DNP-CD in Milwaukee's 103-102 loss Monday to Denver.

    Analysis: Plumlee has been limited to 7.4 minutes per game through Milwaukee's first nine matchups, and Wednesday's game against Denver was the first game he didn't play at all. He's currently the backup center behind Greg Monroe, and is averaging 2.3 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. Looking forward, Plumlee will likely continue to be a role player and his minutes are unlikely to change very drastically.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Nov 03 2015, 07:49 AM

    Update: Plumlee scored two points and added two rebounds in six minutes of action in Monday's 103-96 win in Brooklyn. He did, however, turn the ball over three times and pick up four fouls.

    Analysis: Plumlee opened the season in a fairly head-to-head race with Johnny O'Bryant for backup center minutes, but early on, it seems O'Bryant has been a more reliable option and the player that coach Jason Kidd has turned to the most. Plumlee is averaging only 9.5 minutes per game this season, and with the returns of Jabari Parker (knee) and John Henson (Achilles) just around the corner, it's going to be even tougher for Plumlee to see the court.
