The Bucks decided to waive Rush on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Rush failed to make much of an impression during the preseason, posting just 2.7 points across 11.3 minutes in three contests. He was competing against Gerald green for a depth wing role, but ultimately was unable to win the battle. The veteran will now look for new opportunities elsewhere.

Rush won't play during Friday's preseason finale against the Pistons due to a right hamstring strain.

EDGE Analysis

Rush should be considered questionable for the team's regular season opener. That said, he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season considering the Bucks' depth on the wing.

Rush is joining the Bucks on a training camp contract.

EDGE Analysis

The move was announced earlier in the week, but the details of the contract were not initially made public. It's now clear that Rush will come to Milwaukee on a training camp invite, meaning his contract is currently non-guaranteed, and he'd need to earn his way onto the final, 15-man roster. The veteran, who spent last season in Minnesota, is more accomplished than the typical camp invitee, but in order for the Bucks to keep him around beyond mid-October, they'd need to make a move to clear space. The 32-year-old Rush averaged 4.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 47 games (33 starts) for Minnesota in 2016-17.

Rush signed a contract with the Bucks on Monday, according to his agency, Priority Sports.

EDGE Analysis

The details of the contract are yet to be revealed, but if Rush's contract is guaranteed for the 2017-18 season, the Bucks will have to make a roster move to clear a spot on the 15-man roster. Rush spent last season in Minnesota, where he appeared in 47 games and made 33 starts. The former Kansas star posted averages of just 4.2 points and 2.1 rebounds per game, though he did convert nearly 39 percent of his attempts from three-point range. The Bucks are a team in need of outside shooting, so if Rush does, indeed, stick around for the duration of the season, that's where most of his value would likely be realized.

Rush collected 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes during Monday's 110-109 victory over the Timberwolves.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to Monday, Rush had only been seeing 18.0 minutes per game over the past six contests with coach Tom Thibodeau opting to give reserve point guard Kris Dunn some run next to starter Ricky Rubio. It appears that coach Thibodeau may have opted to go back to his usual rotation Monday, with Rush seeing around 35 minutes per contest. The situation could be worth monitoring, especially with most fantasy leagues in their playoffs.

Rush (illness) will start at shooting guard Friday against the Warriors, Kyle Ratke of Timberwolves.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rush only missed one game with the illness, and it looks like it won't jeopardize his standing as a starter, a role he's held since Zach LaVine suffered a season-ending ACL tear in early February. Shabazz Muhammad, who tallied 17 points, six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes Friday, will move back to the bench to accommodate Rush's return and will likely see his playing time take a hit.

Rush (illness) will play in Friday's game against the Warriors, Jerry Zgoda of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rush was absent from Wednesday's contest against the Clippers due to an illness, but he feels better and should be in for a full workload against his former team Friday. Look for Rush to assume his role as the team's starting shooting guard and play around 30 minutes, which likely means less time for both Shabazz Muhammad and Lance Stephenson

Rush (illness) took part in Thursday's practice and is considered probable for Friday's game against the Warriors, Kent Youngblood of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rush will likely end up missing just one game, as a few additional days off gave him the chance to shed his recent illness. Look for Rush to return to the starting lineup on Friday, which should send Shabazz Muhammad back to the bench in the corresponding move. Despite regularly seeing minutes in the upper-20's, Rush doesn't usually fill up the box score and is usually off the fantasy radar in anything but deeper leagues.

Rush is dealing with an illness and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Rush attempted to make it through pregame warmups, but is still not feeling well enough to take the court, so he'll get the night off Wednesday. Shabazz Muhammad will jump into the starting lineup in his place and should see a bump in minutes for the duration of Rush's absence. Rush could be back as soon as Friday's game against the Wizards.

Rush submitted five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one block across 19 minutes in a 102-88 win over the Kings on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Rush is still holding down the fort as the Wolves' starting shooting guard with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season, but he's rarely made an impact on the offensive end. Since entering the rotation 10 games ago, Rush has failed to hit double figures in the scoring column in any contest, averaging a meager 4.7 points in 26.7 minutes per game during that span.
