Nwora racked up 17 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 32 minutes during Saturday's 105-96 win over Charlotte.
Nwora had it going in the first half, knocking down six of eight shot attempts for 15 points to go along with four rebounds and an assist. He added just two more points in the second half on 1-of-3 shooting from the field while also failing to record any rebounds or assists over the final two quarters. Nwora played a season-high 32 minutes with Milwaukee down most of its starting lineup and went on to record his second-highest point total of the season on 63.6 percent shooting from the field....

Bucks' Bobby Portis: Team-high 20 points in win
Portis ended with 20 points (9-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and seven assists across 31 minutes during Saturday's 105-96 win over Charlotte.
Portis provided the spark early for the Bucks with 11 first-quarter points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field. He added another nine points in the second half to go along with four rebounds and three assists as Milwaukee managed to pull out the win on the road despite missing most of its starting lineup.

Bucks' Brook Lopez: Available Saturday
Lopez is in the starting five for Saturday's game against the Hornets.
Lopez has been upgraded from questionable to available for Saturday's game. Lopez is averaging 15.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and 1.0 assists in 31.1 minutes across 21 games this season and could see extra usage with the Bucks' Big 3 sitting.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Jordan Nwora: Starting Saturday
Nwora will start Saturday's game against the Hornets.
With Jrue Holiday (knee), Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Khris Middleton (conditioning) all out, the Bucks will run out a skeleton crew. In Nwora's one start this season, he posted eight points, seven rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Bobby Portis: Starting Saturday
Portis will enter the starting five for Saturday's game against the Hornets.
Portis is set to see a massive workload with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), Khris Middleton (conditioning), MarJon Beauchamp (illness) and Serge Ibaka (illness) sitting out, making him an incredibly appealing option in all fantasy formats. In five starts this season, Portis has averaged 14.4 points and 12.8 rebounds across 31.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Jevon Carter: Starting Saturday
Carter will start Saturday's game against the Hornets.
The Bucks' Big 3 are all sidelined, so Carter gets the nod alongside Grayson Allen, Jordan Nwora, Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez. In games where Carter has seen 30-plus minutes this season, he's averaged 16.1 points, 5.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds and a steal in 33.8 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Brook Lopez: Should play versus Hornets
Lopez (rest) is expected to take the floor Saturday versus the Hornets, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
Lopez was initially questionable for the evening's contest as he considered a rest night for the first time all year, but the veteran big man will likely give it a go. He figures to start alongside Bobby Portis in the frontcourt with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) getting the night off.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Serge Ibaka: Out Saturday
Ibaka (illness) remains out Saturday against the Hornets.
Ibaka hasn't played since Nov. 21. The bigger news is that Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), Jrue Holiday (knee) and Khris Middleton (conditioning) are out, while Brook Lopez (rest) is questionable.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Brook Lopez: Questionable Saturday
Lopez is questionable due to rest for Saturday's game at Charlotte.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee), Jrue Holiday (knee) and Khris Middleton (conditioning) have already been ruled out for the second half of the back-to-back set after the Bucks lost to the Lakers on Friday. Even if Lopez plays Saturday, it wouldn't be surprising if he saw fewer minutes than usual.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Won't suit up Saturday
Antetokounmpo will miss Saturday's game versus the Hornets due to left knee soreness.
Antetokounmpo joins Jrue Holiday (knee), Khris Middleton (conditioning) and possibly Brook Lopez (rest) on the sideline for Saturday's second game of a back-to-back set. The Bucks will instead trot out a majority of second-unit players to face a banged-up Hornets team. Bobby Portis figures to start alongside Lopez in the frontcourt if Lopez plays. Giannis should be back in action Monday versus the Magic.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Khris Middleton: Out Saturday
Middleton is out Saturday against the Hornets due to conditioning.
Middleton was effective in his season debut during Friday's loss to the Lakers, posting 17 points, seven assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes. Middleton isn't the only one taking a seat on the back-to-back, as Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Jrue Holiday (knee) are out, and Brook Lopez (rest) is questionable. Middleton will likely be back for Monday's game at Orlando.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' MarJon Beauchamp: Remains sidelined Saturday
Beauchamp (illness) is out for Saturday's matchup with Charlotte,
Beauchamp will miss his third straight game Saturday due to a non-COVID illness. Beauchamp's next opportunity to play is Monday's game against the Magic.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Jrue Holiday: Out against Hornets
Holiday will not play in Saturday's matchup with the Hornets due to a left knee contusion, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
The Bucks have a relatively early tip-off time Saturday on the second night of a back-to-back set and will opt to err on the side of caution with Holiday, as well as Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Khris Middleton (conditioning). As a result of his absence, both Jevon Carter and George Hill figure to see increased run at point guard.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Khris Middleton: Solid in season debut
Middleton (wrist) finished with 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes Friday in the Bucks' 133-129 loss to the Lakers.
Though he likely took longer to make his season debut than fantasy managers anticipated after he underwent wrist surgery in July, Middleton was at least effective in his return to the Milwaukee lineup following a 20-game absence to begin the campaign. He appeared to be on a light playing-time restriction, but because he's not returning from a lower-body injury, Middleton should regularly clear 30 minutes in competitive games moving forward while playing in most back-to-back sets. Managers who patiently waited for Middleton's return can feel comfortable activating him.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Bobby Portis: Continues double-double streak
Portis contributed 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes during Friday's 133-129 loss to the Lakers.
Portis has now registered a double-double in each of his last three games, shooting 51.4 percent from the field over this brief stretch. The forward has come off the bench in six straight matchups, but he continues to log substantial minutes (25.5 per game over that span) as one of Milwaukee's most valuable bench players....

Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Pours in 40 points
Antetokounmpo amassed 40 points (16-23 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-11 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one block over 35 minutes during Friday's 133-129 loss to the Lakers.
Antetokounmpo couldn't get his shot working from three, but he managed to knock down 69.6 percent of his field goals on the way to a massive scoring night. The forward has also notched a block in three of his last four contests. Antetokounmpo has been on a scoring tear over his last six matchups, averaging 36.3 points, 9.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 33.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Bucks' Jrue Holiday: Catches fire from three
Holiday accumulated 28 points (11-20 FG, 6-12 3Pt), six rebounds, nine assists and one steal across 39 minutes during Friday's 133-129 loss to the Lakers.
Holiday drilled a season-high six threes on the night, scoring 18 of his 28 points from beyond the arc. He nearly came away with a double-double, dishing out his highest assist total (nine) since Nov. 23 against the Bulls. Holiday is averaging 17.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.8 steals over his last six matchups.... See More ... See Less
