Milwaukee Bucks @ New York Knicks

Game Total 241.5
– Revving up: Khris Middleton’s minutes are finally starting to increase. The Bucks have been very cautious with his workload to begin the season after Middleton underwent knee surgery during the offseason. On the season, Middleton is averaging just 23.8 minutes per game, which are the fewest since his rookie season. He is averaging close to 30 minutes per game over his last three contests. His minutes should continue to increase as long as he does not suffer any setbacks, which bodes well for his fantasy value moving forward.
– Must-roster: The Knicks applied for a Disabled Player Exception for their starting center Mitchell Robinson last week. It seems rather unlikely that we will see Robinson play again this season due to an ankle injury. This opens the door for Isaiah Hartenstein to become fantasy relevant in all formats. While Hartenstein did not start in place of Robinson at first, an injury to fill-in starter Jericho Sims has opened the runway even further for Hartenstein. He needs to be rostered in all formats at the moment, and it would not surprise me to see Hartenstein close out the season as a top-100 player regardless of the fact if he is starting or not once Sims returns.
