Ersan Ilyasova racked up 11 points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes during Tuesday's loss, adding two assists and one block.
With Giannis Antetokounmpo playing just 16 minutes, Ilyasova did his thing, notching a double-double in 23 minutes. We have seen this before from Ilyasova who certainly has the ability to be a fantasy-relevant player when afforded sufficient playing time. Unfortunately, his opportunities come only when Antetokounmpo is limited and so he makes for a risky play on most nights.

Ersan Ilyasova double-doubled in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Pelicans with 12 points and 10 rebounds to go with an assist and a block.
The Bucks are loaded with veteran sharpshooters to help spread the floor and keep the wheels turning. Kyle Korver (24 minutes, six points with two triples) and George Hill (22 minutes, three points on 1-of-7 shooting) didn't have spectacular games, but are all integral in spacing the floor for the team and providing a steady presence on both ends of the floor.

In 56 contests and 16.0 minutes per game for the Bucks, Ersan Ilyasova averaged 6.8 points to go with 4.9 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 0.8 triples, good for 266/247 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
The Turkish forward tied his career-high from the field, shooting an impressive .472, while hitting an equally remarkable .371 from behind the arc. He made eight starts and provided extra length and shooting when the team chose to go small against opponents. Ilyasova has found his Ithaca in Milwaukee and he is one of the key veteran presences around Giannis as the team is trying to compete for a championship.

Ersan Ilyasova started for Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) on Wednesday and was able to contribute 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, one trey an one assist in 19 minutes.
Ilyasova is not worth an add as Giannis should be back after the All-Star break. Keep him on the wire.

Ersan Ilyasova will start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal reasons) on Monday vs. the Kings.
Ilyasova can fill it up when given starter's minutes, so feel free to roll him out there if you're able. Giannis is just missing the game due to the birth of his child, so he should be back on Wednesday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as questionable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Nuggets as he deals with soreness in his right shoulder.
Giannis is in jeopardy of missing a second consecutive contest with this most recent ailment. Ersan Ilyasova will see a significant increase in value if Giannis does sit out. Continue to monitor as we will learn more from tomorrow's official injury report.

Ersan Ilyasova started for Giannis Antetokounmpo (right shoulder soreness) on Tuesday, but was quiet with nine points, five rebounds, two assists, one triple and two steals in 21 minutes.
Outside of spot starts like this one, Ilyasova remains a player to consider in only very deep leagues. Move on.

Ersan Ilyasova is being listed as the starting PF for Tuesday's game against the Wizards with Giannas Antetekounmpo sitting out.
Ilyasova gets added value as a streaming and DFS option for this one. He has shown to produce quality numbers when Antetekounmpo has missed games earlier in the season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right shoulder soreness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.
With the reigning NBA MVP sitting this one out, there will be more usage to go around for everyone, with Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe coming to mind first. Ersan Ilyasova is likely to slide into the starting lineup while Donte DiVincenzo will pick up additional minutes as well.

Robin Lopez (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nets.
We should see a more Ersan Ilyasova backing up the five with Lopez sidelined, with D.J. Wilson getting a few extra minutes.

Robin Lopez (illness) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday versus the Nets.
Lopez has been off the fantasy map this year while playing only 14.3 minutes per game. If he does sit out, expect Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson to split his minutes.

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.
