  • Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Out with hamstring injury

    Matthews has been ruled out for the rest of Monday's game against the Hawks due to right hamstring soreness, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

  • Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Barely sees action in win

    Matthews contributed two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT), one rebound and two steals in four minutes during Friday's 119-108 victory over New York.

    Matthews logged a few garbage time minutes in the win, highlighting just how insignificant his role has become. Even when starting, Matthews has been unable to come close to being a 12-team asset in recent times. The fact that he is now being used as a depth piece only should end any hopes of him fighting for a roster spot in standard leagues.

  • Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Hits game-winner Thursday

    Matthews registered eight points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 20 minutes during Thursday's 90-88 win over the 76ers.

    Milwaukee leaned on Matthews in the fourth quarter as he played eight of his 20 minutes and nailed a three-pointer with 24.7 seconds left to give the Bucks an 89-88 lead. It was a great start to the season for the 36-year-old as he has averaged just 5.9 points while making 38.4 percent of his shots over the last three campaigns. He came off the bench in the opener but could get some starts in the early part of the year with Khris Middleton (wrist) and Pat Connaughton (calf) likely out until early November.

  • Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Set to play Thursday

    Matthews said Wednesday that he is good to go for Thursday's season opener against the 76ers, Ben Steele of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Matthews returned to practice and seems to have recovered from his ankle injury that kept him out during the preseason. His return is a huge boost for Milwaukee as Khris Middleton (wrist) and Pat Connaughton (calf) are still out. Matthews will likely compete with Jordan Nwora for the starting small forward spot or be one of the team's first players off the bench Thursday.

  • Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Returns to practice

    Matthews (ankle) participated in 5-on-5 drills in Monday's practice, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Matthews was held out of all preseason action due to his lingeringing ankle injury, but returned to practice Monday. This is a very encouraging sign for the veteran's regular-season status, as the Bucks take on the 76ers on Thursday. When healthy, Matthews could see slightly increased playing time behind Grayson Allen since Khris Middleton (wrist) and Pat Connaughton (calf) are expected to miss the first few weeks of the regular season.

    Matthews (ankle) is expected back at some point next week, leaving him questionable for Opening Night against the Sixers on Thursday, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Matthews (ankle) is not suited up for Saturday's practice, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Matthews was unable to make an appearance this preseason due to an ankle injury. Given his inability to practice, his status is murky for the Bucks' regular-season opener Thursday versus the 76ers. With Pat Connaughton (calf) and Khris Middleton (wrist) also injured, Jordan Nwora and Marjon Beauchamp could be in line for enhanced roles.

  • Bucks' Wesley Matthews: Back with Bucks on one-year deal

    Matthews and the Bucks agreed Thursday to a one-year contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Matthews joined the Bucks in December last season and quickly became a meaningful part of the rotation. Notably, he started his final 18 appearances (including playoffs), averaging 6.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 27.6 minutes. He shot 39.4 percent from three during those games. His role could be scaled back next season based on who else Milwaukee targets in free agency. Plus, it will be Matthews' age 36 season.
