Ersan Ilyasova News
Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova (elbow) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Orlando Magic. The Bucks are not going to risk any of their veterans at less than 100 percent health. Milwaukee should win this series comfortably whether or not IIyasova is on the court. Marvin Williams should absorb most of the extra minutes, but it probably won't be enough to warrant ownership in DFS contests.
Milwaukee Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova has been ruled out for Fridays game versus the Sacramento Kings due to right knee soreness. After having reeled off three consecutive double-doubles to close out 2019, Ilyasova has seen a reduced role as a reserve over his last four games. He has filled in primarily when Giannis Antetokounmpo has been unavailable this season, but with the leagues reigning MVP active Friday, Ilyasova would have held very little fantasy value irregardless. His next chance at returning to the floor comes Saturday against Portland.
Milwaukee Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova returned to his traditional role as a reserve for Mondays game versus the Chicago Bulls, yet he still managed to record a double-double for the third straight game. Ilyasova previously saw an uptick in both minutes and role due to the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo, but with the leagues reigning MVP back in the mix Monday, Ilyasova was capped at just 19 minutes. Even with the decreased time on the floor, he finished with 14 points on 5-for-8 shooting to go with 11 rebounds and two assists. Owners likely cant anticipate this level of contribution on a nightly basis, but should Antetokounmpo miss anymore time, Ilyasova appears primed to step in and be a fantasy asset.
Milwaukee Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova made his third start of the season during Fridays win over the Atlanta Hawks, entering the starting five with Giannis Antetokounmpo ruled out. Ilyasova utilized the extended playing time and increased role to collect 18 points and a season-high 17 rebounds, the highest total he has accrued on the glass since March 26, 2017. Ilyasovas fantasy value is directly tied to the health of Antetokounmpo; should the leagues reigning MVP return for Saturdays matchup with the Magic, Ilyasova will hold very little fantasy relevance. But if Antetokounmpo remains out of the mix, Ilyasova will become a heavily targeted DFS play, even against a slow-paced Orlando squad.
