    Ersan Ilyasova was able to tally 14 points, seven rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Knicks.

    There was ample garbage time to work with but Ilyasova did this damage in just 16 minutes. He's right around the top-225 mark and is worth a look in 16-team formats, especially given his prominence when the main Bucks sit out — that's likely to happen a fair amount down the stretch.

    Robin Lopez (rest) will sit out on Tuesday when the Bucks take on the Knicks.

    There will be no revenge game for the backup Lopez twin this time. This is Lopez's first missed game of the season, so it's not totally clear how the Bucks will handle it. D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova should be in line for at least a few more minutes on Tuesday.

    Ersan Ilyasova's knee injury will keep him out of Friday's tilt with the Kings.

    Not much news from this. Ilyasova has seen his minutes in decline of late, which is the expectation when his teammates are healthy. He can be ignored outside of deeper leagues where he can be a streamer on occasion. He should not be out for long.

    Ersan Ilyasova is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings with a knee injury.

    Ilyasova pops up on the injury report with a knee issue after a few quiet games of production. It's not clear if hell actually miss any time but he's not a fantasy asset in most leagues when Giannis is healthy.

    Ersan Ilyasova double-doubled on Monday as he provided 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, 11 rebounds, two assists and a three in 19 minutes.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo returned from a two-game absence, so Ilyasova was relegated back to the bench, but he still produced a solid stat line. He's a must-start when Giannis sits, but history tells us that Ilyasova can't be trusted as a bench player.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Bulls.

    Antetokounmpo has missed the last two games, but the injury doesn't appear serious. Ersan Ilyasova has been destroying with Antetokounmpo out and is worth holding until his return.

    Ersan Ilyasova is loving life without Giannis Antetokounmpo, posting his second straight big line with 17 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, five 3-pointers and a block on Saturday.

    Ilyasova filled it up in just 27 minutes and shot 6-of-10 from the field. This is on the heels of an 18 & 17 game against Atlanta and Ilyasova should be scooped up in all leagues while he's this hot. That said, his production immediately vanishes the second Antetokounmpo is cleared to return, so don't go crazy and drop anyone with legitimate season-long appeal.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) will miss his second straight game as the Bucks take on the Magic on Saturday.

    Antetokounmpo was not missed on Friday as the Bucks blew out the Hawks so hopefully this is just a precautionary move against the sub-.500 Magic. Ilyasova started his his place and went bonkers with 18 points and 17 rebounds while shooting 7-of-8 from the field with two triples and a block in 24 minutes of action. He should be in line to start again on Saturday.

    Ersan Ilyasova started for Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad tendon soreness) on Friday and blew up for 18 points (7-of-8 shooting), 17 rebounds, two threes and one block in 24 minutes.

    Ilyasova is not much of an impact-player on most nights, but when Giannis sits, he's worth a stream for short-term value on the strength of games like this one.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad tendon soreness) is questionable for Friday's tilt vs. the Grizzlies.

    Giannis missed his first game of the season on Wednesday but the Bucks had no problem earning their 22nd win of the season without their MVP. They will be cautious with Giannis as they sit firmly in the top spot of the Eastern Conference and their main objective is to win come May and June. If Giannis sits out again, Ersan Ilyasova should see more opportunity and can be viewed as a streaming candidate when Antetokounmpo is out.

    Ersan Ilyasova made the most of a spot start on Wednesday, chipping in 18 points (8-of-10 shooting), nine rebounds, two 3, three assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

    Ilyasova joined the Bucks starting five with Giannis Antetokounmpo out with right quad soreness. He's a short-term value stream while the Greek Freak is on the mend, but should return to the shadows of fantasy obscurity once the Bucks' MVP candidate is active and playing once again.

    Ersan Ilyasova is moving into the starting five in Wednesday night's game against the Pelicans.

    Ilyasova could make for a decent DFS flier for some threes and scoring.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad soreness) will not play on Wednesday.

    The Bucks are 21-3, so it makes sense for them to be careful with their star. Robin Lopez and Ersan Ilyasova should see a bump in minutes. Antetokounmpo is off to an excellent start even by his standards with 30.9 points and 13.2 rebounds per game.

    Robin Lopez will draw the start in place of his brother Brook Lopez during Saturday's game versus the Hornets.

    Lopez becomes a solid DFS and streaming option with his brother out. Ersan Ilyasova will also be a beneficiary and will act as the back up power forward and center.

    Ersan Ilyasova (left heel soreness) took to the hardwood on Monday and delivered nine points (4-of-5 shooting), five rebounds, one steal and one triple in 16 minutes.

    Ilyasova has run mostly cold this season and is not a target outside of very deep leagues.
