Ersan Ilyasova F MIL 3 Days

Ilyasova posted a double-double in 35 minutes Monday against the Bulls as he scored 15 points (6-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt) to go along with 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

The Bucks decided to start Ilyasova against the Bulls big frontcourt and he was able to put up a solid performance in a loss. He may have earned himself more playing time when the Bucks face bigger teams, but will likely only see limited playing time on most nights.

Ilyasova will move into the starting lineup Monday against the Bulls.

Facing a frontcourt of Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah, the Bucks can't afford to give up too much size, so Ilyasova will get the start while Jared Dudley moves to the bench. Jason Kidd said the goal is to get Ilyasova involved early, though he could struggle against the size of Gasol, who went for 46 points and 18 rebounds last time these teams met.

This was Ilyasova's first action since Jan. 27. He's been injured for most of the season, and with Giannis Antetokounmpo playing well at power forward, it's unlikely that Ilyasova will find his way into the starting lineup anytime soon.

Ilyasova (groin) is unlikely to play Wednesday against the Lakers, Greg Matzek of 620 WTMJ reports.

Ilyasova is expected to be in uniform Wednesday but, in all likelihood, will not see the floor as he continues to rehab a groin injury. With Kenyon Martin (ankle) and Zaza Pachulia (calf) also slated to sit out, the Bucks will yet again be extremely shorthanded in the frontcourt.

Ilyasova (groin) is considered questionable to play Wednesday against the Lakers, Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

Ilyasova strained his groin against the Heat last week and has subsequently missed the last three games. He did some individual, conditioning work at Tuesday's practice, and he'll be evaluated at shootaround Wednesday before a determination is made for the matchup with the Lakers. In Ilyasova's absence, Jared Dudley and Kenyon Martin have seen increased minutes, and that will likely continue if Ilyasova is held out Wednesday.
