  • Shabazz Muhammad: Sticking in China

    After spending the first five seasons of his professional career in the NBA, the 14th overall pick of the 2013 draft headed to China last fall following his release from the Bucks at the conclusion of training camp. He appeared in 41 CBA games for the Shanxi Brave Dragons in 2018-19, averaging 29.7 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. The 26-year-old will likely remain one of the top wings on the circuit during the upcoming campaign, albiet with a different club.

  • Shabazz Muhammad: Waived by Bucks

    Muhammad was waived by the Bucks on Thursday, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Muhammad has five years of NBA experience, so there's certainly a chance he's given a long look by some other team's in the league. During the 2017-18 campaign, specifically, the forward averaged just 5.0 points and 1.8 rebounds across 9.7 minutes. If he happens to go unsigned, Muhammad could opt to head overseas on a more lucrative contract. No matter where Muhammad lands, he won't be fantasy relevant.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Agrees to deal with Milwaukee

    Muhammed agreed to a training-camp deal with the Bucks on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Muhammad ended last season with Milwaukee after beginning it with Minnesota, averaging 5.0 points in 9.7 minutes over 43 games. He will add some more wing depth for Milwaukee, but will likely continue to play a small role with the team if he's able to break camp with a roster spot in hand.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 22 points off the bench Monday

    Muhammad totaled 22 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), and eight rebounds in 23 minutes during Monday's 102-86 victory over Orlando.

    Muhammad scored a season-high 22 points on Monday while also adding eight rebounds. He has proven over his career that he has the ability to put the ball in the basket when afforded the opportunity. However, he doesn't really do much besides scoring, leaving him as purely a points streamer, and only when he gets the minutes.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Questionable for Monday

    Muhammad (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Magic, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Muhammad missed Saturday's contest with a sprained right ankle and is currently in danger of sitting out a second straight game. Look for him to test out the ankle during pregame warmups before a final decision is made on his availability. With Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) also questionable, the Bucks could be short on bodies in the frontcourt.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Out with sprained ankle

    Muhammad is out for Saturday's game against the Knicks due to a sprained right ankle, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    This is the first news of Muhammad dealing with an injury, so it seems likely he picked it up during the team's most recent game Thursday against Brooklyn, when he played nine minutes and shot 1-for-4. That said, usually doesn't see more than 10 minutes on any given night, so his absence from the rotation shouldn't change things too drastically.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Non-factor offensively Thursday

    Muhammad added five points (1-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and two rebounds off the bench during the Bucks' 119-111 loss to the Nets on Thursday.

    For the second straight game, Muhammad was a non-factor offensively, as he has only scored seven points dating back to Apr. 3. The former UCLA product enjoyed a two-game stretch in March in which he poured in 33 points, but aside from that, Muhammad usually produces around his season average of 4.6 points per game.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Leads team in scoring off bench

    Muhammad played 20 minutes off the bench Friday against Chicago, finishing with 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 3PT, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.

    It was easily the best performance in quite some time for Muhammad, who's now strung together a pair of strong showings after playing sparingly through his first few weeks in Milwaukee. The 25-year-old benefited from the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) on Friday, however, and he'll likely sink back into a reduced role once Antetokounmpo returns, which could come as early as Sunday against San Antonio.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: DNP-Coach's Decision during Monday's win

    Muhammad did not see the floor during Monday's 121-103 win over the Grizzlies.

    Muhammad was a healthy scratch after scoring six points to go with one board and one steal in six minutes during Friday's win over the Knicks. Muhammad is averaging just 6.5 minutes per game through two appearances with the Bucks, this after earning 9.4 minutes per night through 32 showings with the Timberwolves. Meanwhile fellow recent addition, Brandon Jennings, exploded for a near triple-double in his season debut on Monday, so there's not much reason to expect Muhammad to make a splash here.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Yet to officially join Bucks

    Muhammad was not with the Bucks for Friday's loss to the Pacers.

    Muhammad will join the team as soon as his buyout from the Timberwolves is completed, but it's unclear when, exactly, that will be. For now, the former UCLA standout's availability for Sunday's game against Philadelphia remains up in the air. If he's unavailable, his next chance to make his Bucks debut would come Monday, when Milwaukee faces off with the Pacers again in Indianapolis.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Available to play Sunday

    Muhammad will be available to make his Bucks debut Sunday, Ted Davis of the Bucks Radio Network reports.

    The Bucks officially announced signing Muhammad about an hour before tip-off. While he'll be available to play off the bench, it's unlikely that he sees a significant amount of playing time given the return of Tony Snell from a thigh injury and Muhammad's limited time with the team. The former UCLA standout, however, could ultimately end up taking away minutes from rookie Sterling Brown and Jason Terry off the bench.

  • Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Plans to sign with Bucks

    Muhammad intends to sign with the Bucks once he clears waivers, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Muhammad fell out of the Timberwolves rotation this season, playing in only 11 games since Nov. 28. The 25-year-old will likely compete for minutes with Sterling Brown and Tony Snell once he arrives in Milwaukee.

  • Shabazz Muhammad: Agrees to buyout

    Muhammad and the Timberwolves reached agreement Thursday on a buyout of the forward's contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of reports.

    Muhammad is averaging 9.4 minutes per contest in 32 games this season, which is the lowest minute average per game since his rookie season. He hasn't played in 32 of the past 43 games, so the veteran should have decently fresh legs for whichever team decides to sign him.
