Insight: There is no timetable for his return. Neal has played solidly off the bench, scoring 12.2 ppg with 3.3 rpg and 1.9 apg.
 
4/2/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Gary Neal (knee, ankle) had 15 points, three assists and one three in 19 minutes Wednesday at Philadelphia.
Insight: Neal returned from a two-game absence Monday. He'll likely play 20-25 mpg for the rest of the season.
 
3/27/2014 11:31:00 AM
Description: Bobcats guard Gary Neal wasn't available Wednesday and isn't expected to play Friday versus Orlando.
Insight: Coach Steve Clifford previously said he was expected to miss the next 2-to-3 games with knee and ankle soreness. Chris Douglas-Roberts put up 16 points, five rebounds and a pair of assists Wednesday night and has fantasy value with a heavy workload.

Description: Bobcats guard Gary Neal won't be in the lineup Wednesday against Brooklyn. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: He's expected to miss the next 2-to-3 games with knee and ankle soreness. Neal has played well since joining Charlotte at the trade deadline (11.5 ppg, 45 percent shooting in 23.4 mpg). Chris Douglas-Roberts (6.0 ppg) should see more time in Neal's absence.
 
3/14/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Gary Neal had 19 points, four assists and three treys in 25 minutes Friday in his return to the lineup after sitting out Wednesday.
Insight: Neal sat out due to "an internal team matter." The guard has averaged 25.4 minutes, 12.8 points, 2.1 assists and 1.8 threes in eight games with the Bobcats.
 
Hot3/14/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guard Gary Neal has scored 18 or 19 points in each of his last three games.
Insight: Neal has scored in double figures in eight of his nine games with the Bobcats after coming over from the Bucks.
 
3/14/2014 11:31:00 AM
Description: Bobcats guard Gary Neal didn't play Wednesday due to "an internal team matter," but should be back in the mix for Friday against Minnesota.
Insight: Neal has limited value with Gerald Henderson back from a five-game absence. He's averaging 11.9 ppg in seven contests with Charlotte, but most of that work was done getting a healthy workload. He'll be lucky to see 20 minutes as a backup to Henderson.
 
3/12/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: According to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, the Bobcats say guard Gary Neal won't play Wednesday due to "an internal team matter."
Insight: Neal wasn't going to have much fantasy value Wednesday anyway with Gerald Henderson back from a five-game absence. Chris Douglas-Roberts will see more playing time in Neal's absence.
 
2/28/2014 7:47:00 PM
Description: Bobcats guards Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour will play Friday night against the Spurs, according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News.
Insight: Neal was traded from Milwaukee to Charlotte along with Luke Ridnour at the trade deadline and didn't play a minute in his first two games with the Bobcats. Neal and Ridnour will probably cancel each other out fantasy-wise.
 
2/20/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee shipped Gary Neal to Charlotte Thursday as part of a four-team trade. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Neal (10.0 ppg) had been the subject of trade rumors for weeks but we doubt this is what he had in mind. It's a better situation than Milwaukee but not the contender he was hoping for. Either way, Neal's stats should stay about the same.
 
2/15/2014 1:33:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Gary Neal is a candidate to be dealt before next week's trade deadline. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: This could be the reason Neal got so much playing time Wednesday against New Orleans (29 minutes). It also means that the good times won't last for long. If Neal gets traded to a contender, he'll probably be buried on the bench, ruining any fantasy value that he may have had.
 
2/12/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Gary Neal has scored 35 points over his last two games.
Insight: Neal played just 13 games from Nov. 30 to Feb. 8 and averaged 16.4 minutes and 7.3 points in that span, but the Bucks have moved him up the depth chart ahead of Luke Ridnour, probably in an attempt to boost his trade value.
 
2/4/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee guard Gary Neal left Tuesday's practice with a stiff back and should eb regarded as questionable for Wednesday game at Denver, according to beat writer Andrew Gruman.
Insight: Neal has never been able to get his scoring average to the 10.0 ppg mark and adding 1.8 rpg and 1.5 apg won't get him onto fantasy radars even when healthy.
 
1/18/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee will be without guard Gary Neal Saturday against Houston. SOURCE: C.F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Insight: He left shootaround with an illness. Neal (10.4 ppg) hasn't played since January 4th so fantasy owners should be used to playing without him.
 
1/7/2014 7:42:00 PM
Description: According to Mark Stein of espn.com, the Bucks will attempt to trade Gary Neal before the Feb. 20 deadline.
Insight: Neal got into an altercation with teammate Larry Sanders in the locker room after Saturday's game when Sanders reportedly complained about Neal's attitude. Neal responded by telling Sanders to try earning his money. Neal has played through plantar fasciitis this season and is averaging 20.5 minutes, 10.4 points and 1.6 threes per game. He's a solid bench guard but won't do enough to become a fantasy option even if he's traded.
 
12/20/2013 11:56:00 AM
Description: Bucks guard Gary Neal (plantar fasciitis) is questionable for Friday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Neal doesn't get enough minutes to put up fantasy-worthy numbers in most leagues, and he's likely to be in and out of the lineup as his foot injury acts up.
 
12/14/2013 10:39:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Gary Neal (plantar fasciitis) aggravated his plantar fasciitis Saturday.
Insight: Neal doesn't get enough minutes to put up fantasy-worthy numbers in most leagues, and he's likely to be in and out of the lineup as his foot injury acts up.
 
12/11/2013 1:33:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Gary Neal (plantar fasciitis) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Spurs, his former team.
Insight: Neal has missed two of the past three games and was limited to seven minutes in the game he played during that span. He's averaging 22 minutes, 10.6 points and 1.7 threes this season.
 
11/15/2013 7:59:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Gary Neal returned to the lineup Friday after missing Wednesday's game with a left foot injury.
Insight: Neal will come off the bench. The 29-year-old has averaged a career-high 14.3 ppg through his first six games.
 
11/15/2013 11:04:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee shooting guard Gary Neal was a late scratch Wednesday against Orlando with a sore foot and is questionable for Friday's game against Indiana.
Insight: Neal has had a productive start to the season, contributing 14.3 ppg as the team's sixth man and would have value if he can play as the Bucks will be short-handed due to multiple injuries.
