Gary Neal returned from a foot injury on Wednesday and hit 4-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, four rebounds and one assist in the loss.
Neal will get hot and have some big lines along the way, but as long as he's not starting for the Bucks, he shouldn't be starting for your fantasy team.

Gary Neal (plantar fasciitis) left Tuesday's practice due to his lingering foot injury.
Neal was limited in Monday's practice, but wasn't reported to have left practice so this seems like a bit of a setback. Plantar fasciitis is an injury that tends to linger, so we wouldn't be surprised to see Milwaukee play it safe for Wednesday's titl against Portland. With Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour likely on minute limits if they play, Nate Wolters and O.J. Mayo could be in line for huge minutes Wednesday night if Neal sits.

Gary Neal (plantar fasciitis) was limited during the Bucks' practice on Monday.
He played 19 minutes on Saturday and his limited activity in practice may be a precaution, but we'll list him on the injury report in advance of Wednesday's game just in case. This is the first time we've seen his foot injury identified as plantar fasciitis, so it could linger for a while.

Gary Neal (foot) returned from his one-game absence on Friday with a line of 11 points, three assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.
He's part of the puzzle to replace the injured Brandon Knight (hamstring) and should continue to flirt with 24-plus minutes while healthy. Neal came in hot from beyond the arc with 52.0 percent of his 3-point attempts going in and he improved that mark with his 3-of-5 tonight. He's a short-term specialist in deep leagues.

Gary Neal (foot) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.
He's coming off a terrific 18-point game on Tuesday, but apparently didn't leave the game unscathed. Neal has a sore left foot, but dealt with foot injuries in camp. Nate Wolters and O.J. Mayo could be busy while they might have to get creative with guys like Giannis "Alphabet" Antetokounmpo.

Gary Neal came off the Bucks bench but saw 31 minutes and finished with his best line of the season: 23 points, four assists and four 3-pointers on 8-of-15 shooting.
Neal has some breakout potential in Milwaukee this season, but it won't be easy once Brandon Knight (hamstring) and Luke Ridnour (back) are back in action. If the duo is going to miss their next game, Neal deserves some consideration in all leagues, as does rookie PG Nate Wolters, who has started two straight games. With the injuries and increased playing time, Neal is averaging 15 points, three assists and two 3-pointers after five games this season.
