Active Illness Open link
Ilyasova practiced Saturday and will be available for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks after sitting out Friday's win due to illness. He'll return to a crowded frontcourt rotation, with Jared Dudley and John Henson looking to have settled in as starters, and Zaza Pachulia and the newly-acquired Miles Plumlee also available in reserve.
2/20/2015 7:00 PM
Out Illness Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets due to illness. There was no word coming in that he was under the weather, so this comes as a bit of a surprise. Jared Dudley, John Henson, Zaza Pachulia, and the newly-acquired Miles Plumlee will see the majority of the run in the frontcourt for the Bucks on Friday with Ilyasova unavailable.
2/6/2015 5:42 PM
Active Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova will return to the lineup on Friday vs. the Rockets, though he'll come off the bench. "We won't play him (Ilyasova) 30 minutes," coach Jason Kidd said. "First night back. We'll give him some minutes under his belt; we've got another game (Sat)." Ilyasova has missed the past four games due to a right groin strain, which he suffered late in the first quarter of a Jan. 27 win. His return will take back minutes at power forward from Jared Dudley and Johnny O'Bryant. Teammate Kenyon Martin (ankle) remains out on Friday.
2/6/2015 12:34 PM
Questionable Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova participated in morning shootaround and coach Jason Kidd said "there could be a chance" for him to play on Friday vs. the Rockets. He's missed the past four games due to his right groin strain, although he's been ramping up his workouts in recent days, and Kidd said Wednesday that he expected him to return soon. Ilyasova suffered the injury late in the first quarter of last Tuesday's win, and said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. Ilyasova's eventual return will take back minutes at power forward from Jared Dudley, Johnny O'Bryant, and Kenyon Martin (ankle, questionable).
2/4/2015 5:31 PM
Out Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest vs. the Lakers. Coach Jason Kidd said he had a good workout in the morning and is on track to return soon from a right groin strain, which has caused him to miss the past three games. Ilyasova suffered the injury late in the first quarter of Tuesday's win, and said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. Jared Dudley and Johnny O'Bryant will continue to see extended run at power forward in his place with Kenyon Martin (ankle) already ruled out.
2/4/2015 11:38 AM
Doubtful Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova will dress for Wednesday's contest vs. the Lakers, but is unlikely to play. He did some conditioning work and individual work on the court Tuesday as he continues to recover from a right groin strain, which has caused him to miss the past three games. Ilyasova suffered the injury late in the first quarter of Tuesday's win, and said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. Jared Dudley and Johnny O'Bryant will continue to see extended run at power forward in his place with Kenyon Martin (ankle) already ruled out.
2/3/2015 2:05 PM
Questionable Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova did some conditioning work and individual work on the court Tuesday, and is considered questionable in advance of Wednesday's contest vs. the Lakers. He has missed the past three games due to a right groin strain, which he suffered late in the first quarter of Tuesday's win. Ilyasova said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. His return would cut into the minutes of Kenyon Martin, Jared Dudley, and Johnny O'Bryant at power forward.
2/2/2015 5:29 PM
Out Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova is listed as out for a third straight game on Monday vs. the Raptors due to his right groin strain. He did not return on Tuesday after leaving late in the first quarter with the injury. Ilyasova said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. John Henson, Jared Dudley, Kenyon Martin and Johnny O'Bryant will continue to see the minutes in the frontcourt Monday with Zaza Pachulia (calf) also out.
1/31/2015 5:49 PM
Out Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out for a second straight game on Saturday game due to his right groin strain. He did not return on Tuesday after leaving late in the first quarter with the injury. Ilyasova said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. John Henson, Jared Dudley, Kenyon Martin and Johnny O'Bryant will see the minutes in the frontcourt on Saturday, with Zaza Pachulia (calf) also sidelined.
1/29/2015 10:34 AM
Out Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova did not participate in shootaround and has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Magic. He did not return on Tuesday after leaving late in the first quarter due to a sore right groin. Ilyasova said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. Kenyon Martin, Jared Dudley, and Johnny O'Bryant will collectively see additional run at power forward in his place on Thursday.
1/27/2015 7:53 PM
Out Sore right groin Open link
Ilyasova won't return to Tuesday's game after leaving during the first half due to a sore right groin. He said he first felt soreness in his groin during Sunday's loss and then felt it again on Tuesday, so he decided to shut it down. John Henson, Kenyon Martin, and Johnny O'Bryant will all see additional run at power forward the rest of the way in his place, and we'll update Ilyasova's status once we hear more.
1/13/2015 10:07 AM
Active Concussion Open link
Ilyasova practiced on Tuesday and will return to the active roster for Thursday's contest vs. the Knicks. He has missed 19 of the Bucks' past 20 games, the first nine due to a nasal fracture and a concussion suffered on Dec. 2, and the last 10 due to a second concussion suffered on Dec. 23. Ilyasova will likely be eased back into the rotation initially given his extended layoff, but is expected to take over as the starting power forward eventually. His return will cut into the minutes of Johnny O'Bryant, Jared Dudley, and Kenyon Martin.
1/10/2015 6:32 PM
Out Concussion Open link
Coach Jason Kidd said that the goal is for Ilyasova to play on Thursday vs. the Knicks in London. Kidd added earlier that Ilyasova has been making progress in his recovery from a concussion he suffered back on Dec. 23 as a result of a blow to the back of his head. Although it's unrelated to the concussion he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2, it's likely that suffering two of them in a relatively short timeframe has contributed to his slow return. Ilyasova will likely be eased in initially given his extended layoff, but is expected to take over as the starting power forward eventually. His return will cut into the minutes of Johnny O'Bryant, Jared Dudley, and Kenyon Martin.
1/9/2015 6:26 PM
Injured Concussion Open link
Coach Jason Kidd said that Ilyasova is making progress and will make the trip to London with the team for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks. He was already ruled out for Friday and will sit out Saturday as well, but this is promising news as he continues to make progress from a concussion he suffered back on Dec. 23 as a result of a blow to the back of his head. Although it's unrelated to the concussion that he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2, it's likely that suffering two of them in a relatively short timeframe has contributed to his slow return. Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson, and Jared Dudley will continue to see additional minutes at power forward for as long as Ilyasova remains sidelined.
1/5/2015 2:33 PM
Injured Concussion Open link
Ilyasova was back with the Bucks on Monday and participated in the team's walkthrough, getting up shots up on his own. He's in the middle of the league's concussion protocol and said he's taking his return day by day. Ilyasova is hopeful he'll be able to do more on Tuesday. This is certainly promising news given the last update from coach Jason Kidd had him out "for a while." He's at least starting to ramp up his activity and approach a return to game action after suffering a concussion during a Dec. 23 loss as a result of a blow to the back of his head. Although it's unrelated to the concussion that he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2, it's likely that suffering two of them in a relatively short timeframe is contributing to his slow return. Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson, and Jared Dudley will continue to see additional minutes at power forward for as long as Ilyasova remains sidelined.
1/2/2015 6:42 PM
Injured Concussion Open link
Coach Jason Kidd said Friday that Ilyasova will be out "for a while" and still "has a ways to go" as he works his way back from his most recent concussion. He will miss his fifth straight game on Friday, and it appears that it could be at least another week before he's a consideration for the team's active roster. Ilyasova's symptoms first arose after he took a blow to the back of head during last Tuesday's loss and, although it's unrelated to the concussion he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2, it's likely that suffering two in a relatively short timeframe is contributing to his slow return. Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jared Dudley will continue to see additional minutes at power forward for as long as he remains sidelined, and the Bucks remain very thin in the frontcourt, with Larry Sanders (personal) also out indefinitely.
1/2/2015 11:02 AM
Out Concussion Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out for a fifth straight game on Friday due to lingering concussion symptoms. His symptoms arose after he took a blow to the back of head during last Tuesday's loss, and it's unrelated to the concussion he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2. Ilyasova will have to pass the league's concussion protocol before he returns, and it's unclear at this point how close he is to a return. Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jared Dudley will continue to see additional minutes at power forward for as long as Ilyasova remains sidelined.
12/31/2014 9:59 AM
Out Concussion Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out again for Wednesday's contest vs. the Cavs due to lingering concussion symptoms. His symptoms arose after he took a blow to the back of head during last Tuesday's loss, and it's unrelated to the concussion he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2. Ilyasova will have to pass the league's concussion protocol before he returns, and Wednesday will mark the fourth straight game that he has missed. Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jared Dudley will continue to see additional minutes at power forward for as long as Ilyasova remains sidelined.
12/28/2014 1:41 PM
Out Concussion Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out in advance of Monday's game vs. the Hornets due to lingering concussion symptoms. His symptoms arose after he took a blow to the back of head late in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets, and it's unrelated to the concussion he suffered when he broke his nose back on Dec. 2. Ilyasova will have to pass the league's concussion protocol before he returns, and Monday will be the third straight game that he misses. Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jared Dudley will continue to see additional minutes at power forward for as long as Ilyasova remains sidelined.
12/26/2014 11:38 AM
Out Concussion Open link
Ilyasova has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Hawks due to a concussion. He took a blow to the back of head late during Tuesday's loss and suffered from concussion-like symptoms afterwards. Ilyasova will be evaluated for Saturday, but it appears unlikely that he'll be available to play a day after being ruled out. He'll have to pass the league's concussion protocol before he returns. Ilyasova's absence will open up additional run at power forward on Friday for Johnny O'Bryant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jared Dudley.
12/23/2014 5:19 PM
Active Nasal fracture Open link
Ilyasova will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets after missing the past nine games due to a nasal fracture. He'll come off the bench initially with Johnny O'Bryant getting perhaps his final start at power forward, and will wear a fitted mask for at least the next few months. Ilyasova is looking at an expanded role at power forward for the Bucks moving forward, with Jabari Parker (knee) having been ruled out for the season.
12/22/2014 12:33 PM
Questionable Nasal fracture Open link
Ilyasova returned to practice with the Bucks on Monday and could return to the team's active roster for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets. "We'll see if he can play," said coach Jason Kidd. "If he can go, we'll get some minutes for him. I think it's big. He was playing at a very high level for us before the injury." Ilyasova has missed the past nine games due to a nasal fracture, and he'll wear a fitted mask for at least a few months after he does return. Ilyasova is looking at a larger role at power forward for the Bucks once he's back to full strength, with Jabari Parker (knee) lost for the season. Johnny O'Bryant and Khris Middleton will continue to handle the majority of the minutes at the position for at least one more game if Ilyasova isn't cleared to return on Tuesday.
12/20/2014 8:54 PM
Injured Nasal fracture Open link
Coach Jason Kidd said Ilyasova is getting closer to a return and will be evaluated next week, likely Monday, when the Bucks return from their four-game road trip. It's possible that he'll return to the lineup for Tuesday's contest vs. the Hornets after a nine-game absence due to a nasal fracture. Ilyasova is expected to wear a fitted mask for at least a few months after he does return, and we should have a clearer picture of a timeline after his evaluation on Monday. Johnny O'Bryant and Khris Middleton will continue to handle the majority of the minutes at power forward on Saturday in his absence.
12/12/2014 3:03 PM
Injured Nasal fracture Open link
Ilyasova was back with the Bucks on Friday, but he's only been cleared for light conditioning work after undergoing surgery for his broken nose this past Monday. He's expected to be re-evaluated on Monday and won't travel with the Bucks on their upcoming West Coast road trip, meaning he's out for at least the next five games, and possibly beyond. "I've broken my nose several times in the past eight years, and so far this is one of the worst ones," Ilyasova said. He's expected to wear a fitted mask for at least a few months after he does return, and we should have a clearer picture of a timeline after his Monday evaluation. Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton will continue to handle the minutes at power forward for as long as Ilyasova remains sidelined.
12/3/2014 3:07 PM
Injured Nasal fracture Open link
Ilyasova has been diagnosed with a nasal fracture and mild concussion symptoms, suffered when he took an inadvertent elbow to the face from Tristan Thompson during Tuesday's game. He was held overnight in the Cleveland Clinic for observation and underwent a CT scan, and further tests on Wednesday led to the diagnosis. Ilyasova has been declared out for the next four games, at minimum, with his status beyond that to be updated "as appropriate," according to the team. The Bucks will be painfully thin in the frontcourt, with John Henson (foot) already having been ruled out for the next five games and Zaza Pachulia remaining as the only backup true big, meaning that Giannis Antetokounmpo will be needed to see some backup run to power forward at least in the short-term.
10/16/2014 1:32 PM
Injured Bruised knee Open link
Ilyasova will miss the Bucks' upcoming two preseason games with a bruised knee. His knee is noticeably swollen right now and he won't practice until the swelling subsides. And so it begins ... again. Ilyasova is already entering the 2014-15 season with a lot of uncertainty and risk as is, and this knee injury only adds to that. John Henson and Khris Middleton would see additional run at power forward (as would Jabari Parker) if Ilyasova was forced to miss extended time.
10/15/2014 1:40 PM
Questionable Knee Open link
Ilyasova missed practice on Wednesday due to an undisclosed knee injury. No further details were given and it's not presumed to be serious, especially since he played 27 minutes during Tuesday's exhibition, but it's worth noting given Ilyasova is already entering the 2014-15 season with a lot of uncertainty and risk as is. We'll update his status accordingly when we hear more.
