11/17/2014 2:18:00 PM
Description: Orlando backup point guard Luke Ridnour is expected to return from a personal issue that cvaused him to miss Saturday's game.
Insight: Ridnour (5.8 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3.1 apg) isn't fantasy worthy, but his return will take minutes back from Elfrid Payton and possibly Evan Fournier.
 
2/20/2014 6:17:00 PM
Description: The Bucks dealt point guard Luke Ridnour to Charlotte on Thursday. Gary Neal, Jeff Adrien and Ramon Sessions were also involved in the trade. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Ridnour (5.7 ppg, 3.4 apg) fell out of Milwaukee's rotation and probably won't fare much better in his new home. Fantasy owners can safely avoid the veteran floor general.
 
2/18/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour is probable for Tuesday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Ridnour has been dealing with back spasms and hasn't played much of late - just 25 total minutes since Jan 29. He's rumored to be on the trading block so could be showcased Tuesday with the deadline just a couple of days away.
 
2/11/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Bucks coach Larry Drew confirmed that Luke Ridnour was 100 percent healthy Monday. SOURCE: Charles F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: Ridnour missed Saturday's game due to a back injury and picked up a DNP-Coach's Decision Monday against Boston. He hasn't played more than 21 minutes in a game since Jan. 18 and can be dropped in all leagues.
 
2/10/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Bucks backup point guard Luke Ridnour is dealing with a bad back and is questionable for Monday's game against Boston.
Insight: Ridnour doesn't have much fantasy value these days, although with all the injuries to the Bucks roster if he was healthy he'd see his minutes. Bucks will probably spread his minutes around to Nate Wolters and Gary Neal, but Brandon Knight is the Bucks' backcourt guy to have.
 
1/20/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour's MRI confirmed he has a sprained right wrist but no fracture, according to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal.
Insight: Ridnour suffered the injury Sunday. He has averaged 29.5 minutes per game over the last 10 games and if he has to miss time the Bucks would probably spread his minutes around to O.J. Mayo, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Caron Butler.
 
1/19/2014 8:21:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour suffered a sprained right wrist during the first half of Sunday's game and will not return. SOURCE: Charles F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: Gary Neal started the second half in the backcourt with Brandon Knight, but O.J. Mayo may end up being the biggest beneficiary of Ridnour's absence. Ridnour has averaged 29.5 minutes per game over his last 10 and Mayo just 21.5 in the same timeframe.
 
12/6/2013 10:11:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour played just three minutes Friday against the Wizards in an overtime win.
Insight: Ridnour moved to the bench when Brandon Knight returned from his injury and now he appears to be behind Nate Wolters as well. Fantasy owners can drop him in all leagues.
 
11/20/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour played 30 minutes and had 13 points, five rebounds, five assists and one steal Wednesday in his first start of the season.
Insight: Rookie Nate Wolters played just 18 minutes off the bench. Until Brandon Knight (hamstring) returns to the lineup, Ridnour should play close to 30 minutes per game.
 
11/20/2013 7:01:00 PM
Description: Luke Ridnour will make his first start of the season Wednesday when the Bucks take on Portland, according to Gery Woelfel of journaltimes.com.
Insight: The team will move Nate Wolters to the bench. Ridnour has played just 20.5 minutes per game in two games since returning from a back injury, but he's ready to assume a larger role. Brandon Knight (hamstring) is still out, so Ridnour has a shot to hold onto the starting job if he plays well.
 
11/13/2013 3:35:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Luke Ridnour (back) has joined the team in Orlando and said he feels "great," according to Bucks play-by-play announcer Jim Paschke.
Insight: Ridnour has yet to make his season debut due to a back injury. He probably needs to practice before he's able to play, so playing Wednesday seems unlikely. Ridnour was expected to back up Brandon Knight, but the emergence of Nate Wolters while both Ridnour and Knight were injured makes this a complicated situation. Wolters has averaged 8.8 points, 5.7 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.0 steals and just 0.8 turnovers per game.
 
11/12/2013 11:22:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Luke Ridnour didn't practice Monday and there seems to be no rush to bring the veteran point guard back.
Insight: Ridnour has yet to make his season debut due to a back injury. The Bucks also have been playing with Brandon Knight and rookie Nate Wolters at the point and getting decent production from them so when Ridnour returns his role is uncertain.
 
11/9/2013 3:32:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Luke Ridnour is doubtful for Saturday's game, according to NBA.com.
Insight: Ridnour has yet to make his season debut due to a back injury. The Bucks also have been playing with Brandon Knight since the season opener, leaving rookie Nate Wolters and Gary Neal to handle point guard duties.
 
11/5/2013 8:27:00 PM
Description: It's unclear if Bucks guard Luke Ridnour will make his season debut Wednesday versus Cleveland. SOURCE: Fox Sports Wisconsin
Insight: He wasn't at practice on Tuesday, which is never a good sign. Ridnour has missed three games in a row because of back issues.
 
11/2/2013 7:48:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Luke Ridnour won't be in the lineup Saturday against Toronto. SOURCE: C.F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: Ridnour is still out with a back injury. Rookie Nate Wolters (11.5 ppg) will make his first career start.
 
11/1/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour missed Wednesday's game with a sore back and is doubtful for Friday's game against Boston.
Insight: With Brandon Knight already declared out, Nate Wolters and Gary Neal will inherit the minutes.
 
10/30/2013 7:18:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Luke Ridnour will miss Wednesday's game with a sore back, according to CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Insight: Brandon Knight will see extra minutes as the starter while third-stringer Nate Wolters will see some time as a backup.
 
7/12/2013 6:48:00 PM
Description: To make room for Corey Brewer and Kevin Martin, the T-Wolves have shipped point guard Luke Ridnour to Milwaukee. SOURCE: Star Tribune
Insight: Ridnour will backup either Brandon Jennings or Jeff Teague next season (or maybe both). He started all 82 games for Minnesota last season, averaging 11.5 ppg on 45.3 percent shooting. This will be Ridnour's second stint with the Bucks after playing with them from 2008 to 2010.
 
2/16/2013 4:22:00 PM
Description: 1500 ESPN reports that the Knicks are pursuing a trade for Timberwolves point guard Luke Ridnour.
Insight: Minnesota doesn't need three point guards and out of the three (J.J. Barea, Ridnour and Ricky Rubio) it seems like Ridnour is the most likely to be traded. The Knicks' current point guard Raymond Felton (14.9 ppg, 6.3 apg) plays more than 34 minutes per game, which wouldn't leave much time for Ridnour (12.3 ppg, 3.9 apg) to contribute.
 
2/10/2013 8:34:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard Luke Ridnour scored 17 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two threes Sunday versus Memphis.
Insight: Ridnour has scored 37 points over the last two games. Unfortunately, when Minnesota has four healthy guards Ridnour cannot be relied upon as more than a fantasy backup. J.J. Barea should be able to return soon from a back injury.
