4. Michael Carter-Williams

Michael Carter-Williams’ start to the season hasn’t been perfect by any stretch of the imagination. His shooting remains as sporadic and inconsistent as ever, while control continues to be a problem also, averaging 3.8 turnovers per game.

To make matters worse, MCW has missed three games through injury and has generally been forced to watch on while other guards impressed. Yet the fundamentals are still there for MCW to develop into the player that the Bucks want him to be.

He can certainly pick a pass, and with reduced playmaking responsibility in the clutch with the load shared by Giannis and Khris Middleton, he looks more at ease in the clutch. While his big defensive plays show that he will continue to be one of the players to set the tone for Milwaukee on that side of the floor too. He might be a divisive figure, but if you don’t think he’s important right now, you’re fooling yourself.

Next: 3. Khris Middleton
