Milwaukee Bucks SF/PF Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as out for Tuesday’s game vs. the Washington Wizards. The big man is dealing with shoulder soreness and will rest in a game the Bucks should win pretty handily at home.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Milwaukee Bucks SF/PF Giannis Antetokounmpo
With Giannis out tonight in the best matchup for fantasy basketball purposes, this makes both Eric Bledsoe ($6,600) and Khris Middleton ($7,000) ELITE cash-game plays. I mean elite. Like you need to play both of them in 50/50s and Double-Ups essentially. I’d be OK mixing one or both into tournament lineups as well. As for value, Ersan Ilyasova ($3,300) and Brook Lopez ($4,800) should pick up the slack in the front court.
