Ersan Ilyasova F MIL 19 Days

Ersan Ilyasova is out for the season and will rest his ankle for two months.

"I never had problems with the ankle," Ilyasova said. "It started when I twisted it really bad in training camp. I think I really rushed myself to get back for the first game of the season." His game completely fell apart down the stretch as one of the worst defenders at power forward. Ilyasova ineptitude on defense was only matched by his inconsistency on offense, so he'll be on a lot of "do not draft" lists for next season.

Ersan Ilyasova (foot, ankle) is not expected to play for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

Ilyasova will not require surgery but a doctor recommended that he immediately begin "a period of rest and rehabilitation." It's unclear what the exact problem is with Ilyasova's ankle and foot, and given the Bucks' sparse injury updates it's likely to remain a mystery. Jeff Adrien and John Henson both get a bump in playing time with Ersan out, and both guys are candidates to start at PF, while Khris Middleton and newcomer D.J. Stephens may also get a few extra minutes. Ilyasova will finish his season having averaged 11.2 points and 6.2 rebounds in 55 appearances, and this disastrous campaign will he hard to forget during fantasy drafts next season.

Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) is visiting a doctor on Wednesday and his status for Thursday's game is uncertain.

He sat out Monday's game and the Bucks already plan to protect his health by resting him one game in each of their two remaining back-to-back sets. We should know more about his status soon enough, and a positive medical update could clear him to play, but until then cautious owners have to consider him to be a shut-down candidate for the lottery-bound Bucks.

Ersan Ilyasova played 24 minutes in another start at PF on Sunday, scoring 14 points and grabbing four rebounds, but he may sit out Monday's game as a precaution.

Ilyasova is dealing with an ankle injury and the Bucks have already vowed to rest him one game during back-to-back sets, so owners have to anticipate at least one DNP this week. With only three games on the schedule for Milwaukee, Ilyasova's owners may be forced to cut him in favor of a healthy player with a better schedule.

Ersan Ilyasova had another poor outing against the Warriors on Thursday with 11 points, three boards and three fouls in 19 minutes.

He doesn't even look like he wants to play right now, isn't moving his feet on defense and has made just one 3-pointer since Mar. 5, shooting just 5.8 percent from deep in that stretch. Luckily, Ilyasova has made 50 percent of his mid-range shots in that span, so his numbers look better than they really are. He's more trouble than he's worth in most leagues.

Ersan Ilyasova returned from an ankle injury and hit 6-of-10 shots for 12 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 23 minutes before fouling out of Tuesday's OT loss to the Blazers.

He's going to sit out half of the team's remaining back-to-backs, making him a very shaky weekly fantasy player going forward. The Bucks have back-to-back games on March 23/24, April 4/5 and 11/12, meaning Ilyasova is slated to miss at least three more games over the next few weeks. They're off until Thursday, so we're guessing he'll be ready to go against the Warriors.

Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) will start Tuesday's game but he'll only play in one game during back-to-back sets for the rest of the season.

The Bucks play back-to-back games on Sunday and Monday, but after that they only have two remaining on April 4/5 and 11/12.

Ersan Ilyasova is expected to start for the Bucks on Tuesday.

He was a surprise DNP on Sunday, but it sounds like his ankle is feeling better today. As long as he doesn't have a setback in the next 5 hours, Ilyasova can be put back into your lineup.

Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Bobcats, John Henson will start.

Ilyasova will not suit up for Sunday's game due to a right ankle injury, and John Henson will draw the start. Henson hasn't been able to do much lately, but perhaps the injury to Ersan will allow Henson to crack the 25 minute mark.

Ersan Ilyasova scored eight points on 3-of-10 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Knicks, while struggling to defend Amare Stoudemire.

Ilyasova was coming off a solid game with 22 points and 10 rebounds, but after a turbulent season his owners should be used to frustrating duds. He'll look to get back on track vs. a surprisingly stout Bobcats defense on Sunday.
