Ilyasova out Tuesday vs. Portland?
By Joe Kaiser
Ersan Ilyasova's monstrous stretch over the last three games appears to have taken its toll on his body.
Ilyasova, who has averaged 22.3 PPG and 13.3 RPG in Milwaukee's games against Washington, Miami and Orlando last week, is bothered by sore back and hip and isn't likely to play Tuesday night against Portland, per Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.
Obviously, this isn't good news for the Bucks or anyone who has Ilyasova on their fantasy team with it now being fantasy playoff season. If Ilyasova cannot go, look for his minutes to be split between Mike Dunleavy, John Henson and Ekpe Udoh until he's back in the lineup. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, who is suffering from turf toe, has already been ruled out for the Trail Blazers game.
