Ersan Ilyasova

  • Ersan Ilyasova - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova tallied 13 points (4-of-6 shooting), five rebounds, an assist, a steal and three 3-pointers in Friday's easy home win.

    Ilyasova also saw 27 minutes and looks like the main beneficiary of Nikola Mirotic's absence. He might get into the top-150 if he keeps up the solid shooting, and his stat set offers some 12-team appeal if you need rebounds and out-of-position threes. Ilyasova isn't a must-add by any means, though.

    Ersan Ilyasova (illness) will play on Wednesday against the Cavs.

    Ilyasova missed Tuesday's game as he was under the weather, but he'll play tonight. A top-150 finish isn't out of the question given Ilyasova's stat set and Nikola Mirotic's 2-to-4 week timetable, so you can consider him a low-end add if you need rebounds, some 3-pointers and the occasional defensive stat.

    Ersan Ilyasova (illness) is probable to face the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Ilyasova seems to be over the illness that kept him out of Tuesday's game. WIth Giannis Antetokounmpo questionable and Nikola Mirotic out a few weeks, Ersan may end up in a starting role and see a nice chunk of minutes as a cheap dart in DFS.

    Ersan Ilyasova (illness) is not expected to play against the Lakers on Tuesday.

    Ilyasova is listed as active on the final team sheet, but his note says "DNP – Illness." Beat writers do not expect him to give it a go. With no Malcolm Brogdon, Pat Connaughton will pick up extra minutes.

    Ersan Ilyasova (illness) is probable for Tuesday.

    Ilyasova might get some extra run if the Bucks can blow out the Lakers, but that's a pretty weak floor for fantasy purposes even if Milwaukee is likely to win in a walk.

    Ersan Ilyasova (left hamstring soreness) is being listed as probable going into Monday's game vs. the Suns.

    It looks like Ilyasova is going to play in tonight's game and he's more of a deep-league play. Over the past two weeks he's the 137th-ranked player and he's really giving owners great percentages along with a lack of turnovers.

    With Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon both out on Saturday, Ersan Ilyasova was promoted to the starting five but could only muster five points on 2-of-8 from the field in 20 minutes.

    Ilyasova added three boards, a steal and a 3-pointer. He was a DFS option tonight but failed to deliver, and he'll return to his bench role in the next one with Milwaukee's injuries looking like lame excuses for extra rest. He's only an option in very deep leagues.

  • Ersan Ilyasova - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova started on Monday and scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with six rebounds, an assist and a 3-pointer.

    Ilysaova logged 24 minutes and got the spot start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee soreness). He can be left on the wire.

    Ersan Ilyasova will start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee soreness) on Monday against the Bulls.

    Ilyasova is in a great spot against a weak Bulls team. The Bulls play at a fairly-high pace with poor defensive efficiency, which should open up a lot of value of Ilyasova, Nikola Mirotic and the rest of the Bucks starters.

    Ersan Ilyasova started for Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore right quad, left hip contusion) and scored 12 points (no 3s) to go with five rebounds and two steals in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

    Ilyasova has been between the top-200 and top-220 all season so has pretty consistent value for deep-leaguers looking for a little bit of everything. His biggest value is lack of turnovers so has more of a 9-cat roto lean.

  • Ersan Ilyasova - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova (sore left quad) and D.J. Wilson (left hip pointer) will both be available to play on Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Wilson had some marginally better numbers when Ilyasova was out recovering from nose surgery but since both are back, Ilyasova has the best chance to hold some value, though likely not enough for 14-16 deep.

    Ersan Ilyasova (quad soreness) is probable for Friday's game against the Wizards

    Ilyasova has some very deep league appeal in 16-team leagues but given the Bucks' depth up front, there isn't a lot of guaranteed minutes for him. Expect some scoring, a few boards and some 3-pointers.

    Ersan Ilyasova returned from a broken nose on Friday and delivered 10 points, 10 rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes of work.

    If you were worried that Ilyasova would be tentative following an eight-game layoff, he took a charge in his first sequence of the game. He's going to help bolster the Bucks' depth but is unlikely to hit the fantasy radar for any extended period of time in leagues with fewer than 16 teams.

    Ersan Ilyasova (broken nose) has been removed from the injury report and will play on Friday night.

    Ilyasova was able to go through some activity in recent practices and coach Bud said his return was close, even if it didn't end up happening tonight. If you're in a 16-team format then Ilyasova is a safe add for his blend of threes, rebounds and occasional defensive stats.

    Ersan Ilyasova went through Thursday's non-contact practice, and coach Budenholzer said that if he doesn't return from his broken nose on Friday it shouldn't be much longer after that.

    Ilyasova underwent nasal surgery on December 21 and was able to ramp up his practice activity on Saturday. He'll help bolster Milwaukee's bench when he does return and should be looked at as a top-200 asset who might flirt with top-150 value for stretches. D.J. Wilson and Thon Maker are the likely candidates to lose minutes when Ilyasova returns.
