Ersan Ilyasova had 12 points (6-13 FGA, 0-2 3PA) with six rebounds Bucks' 103-86 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

That marks six consecutive games in double figures for Ilyasova, and tonight he did it in only 12 minutes. His 17.9 minutes per game are his lowest since his rookie season, and he's now playing behind Milwaukee's brigade of young forwards. His upside is minimal, and his owners can start to consider dropping him, as it seems unlikely he climbs past Jabari Parker, John Henson, or Giannis Antetokounmpo on the depth chart.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 13 points (6-12 FGA, 1-2 FTA) eight rebounds, and four assists Bucks' 103-86 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Another solid game from Giannis, who has seen his production leap in his second season. New coach Jason Kidd is showing a lot of trust in his young forward, and Giannis seems to be improving by the game. He won't always do it with scoring, but he finds a way to fill the stat sheet every night.

Brandon Knight scored 15 points (3-11 FGA, 8-8 FGA) and went one-for-three from deep with two rebounds, two assists, and three steals Bucks' 103-86 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Knight managed to get a tough night on track by getting to the line, but the rest of his performance was unimpressive. The Kentucky product is enjoying a bit of a breakout in his fourth season, averaging career highs in every major category as he heads for restricted free agency in the offseason. He's not the best passer, but his across the board production is more than enough to keep his owners happy.

Larry Sanders scored 15 points (7-10 FGA, 1-1 FTA) with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal, and five blocks Bucks' 103-86 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

This marks back-to-back double digit scoring games from Sanders, who is still struggling to find the form that led to his breakout in 2012-13. While the scoring isn't concerning in and of itself, the seven rebounds per game and 1.9 blocks per game are well off his previous standards. Owners who took a gamble on Sanders are looking like they might have lost it for now, although a night like tonight provides some hope.

Jabari Parker scored 11 points (5-12 FGA, 1-1 FTA) with seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in the Bucks' 103-86 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Parker's been a bit slow to get his footing as a rookie, and his 11.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game so far are well below what many expected coming into the season. The Bucks are humming along with a somewhat equal opportunity offensive attack, so Parker's statistical improvement is likely to be marginal this season. He's still a must-own in any dynasty format and worth a roster spot in any league on pedigree alone, but he's not the Rookie of the Year shoo-in many predicted.

Update: John Henson (foot) will not play Wednesday agains the Timberwolves.  

Henson left in the second quarter of Tuesday night's game. It's been reported as a left ankle sprain and he's not expected to travel with the team to Minnesota on Wednesday. He played just four minutes and did not score a point during the Bucks' 98-86 win over the Pistons.

Ersan Ilyasova scored 13 points (4-11 FGA, 3-4 FTA) going 2-for-3 from three point range with nine rebounds and a steal during the Bucks' 98-86 win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Ilysova has made the most of his minutes since being moved to the bench. He's scored double-digit points in each of his last five games and appears to have emerged from his early-season scoring funk. He's still not getting the minutes to warrant an add in shallower fantasy leagues.

Larry Sanders scored 12 points (6-12 FGA) with nine rebounds, an assist and a block during the Bucks' 98-86 win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Sanders had a solid night for his fantasy owners, nearly double-doubling with an assist and a block. It's been a rough early-season for the big fella, but he's still worth owning in fantasy thanks to his consistent rebound and block output.

Jabari Parker scored 14 points (7-10 FGA, 0-1 FTA) with nine rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block during the Bucks' 98-86 win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

It was an all-around solid evening for the rookie, who's been pretty good, yet not spectaular so far in his young career. If he sees an increase in minutes once his feet are thoroughly wet, he could see an uptick in fantasy production as the season wears on.
