In the fallout from Jabari Parker's torn ACL, the
At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at the possible replacements for Parker on the Bucks' roster, headlined by
"Middleton wasn't a great shooter in college, but has now connected on 39.9 percent of his 3-point attempts in the NBA, on a pretty hefty sample size. He should slot in nicely at small forward if the team opts to stick him there, and already showed he can be a solid Fantasy option last season, when he averaged 13.3 points, 2.4 assists and 1.7 3-pointers per game in 64 starts a year ago.
If Middleton is the priority as a Parker replacement, Ilyasova is the dark horse. Personally, I'm not terribly interested in adding Ilyasova, though I was consistently one of his biggest boosters last season. He has simply struggled to consistently produce, even when given a chance, and is shooting just 29.6 percent on 3-pointers since the end of the 2012-13 season, on 179 attempts."
Middleton is worth adding in nearly all category-based formats, especially if you are in need of a replacement for Parker. Ilyasova is also worth a flier, given how well he played prior to a broken nose, but is by no means a must-add option.
"I've broken my nose several times in the past eight years, and so far this is one of the worst ones," Ilyasova said. "I had a couple fractures, some of the new and old ones. I had to get surgery and just put it in place. It was hard to breathe. Now I feel much better. The doctor said I will probably have to wear the mask when I start playing."
Ilyasova has averaged 10.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game.
If Ilyasova doesn't play during the road trip, the earliest he'd be able to make it back would be Dec. 13. However, the team doesn't have a specific timetable for his recovery, leaving him out indefinitely. Ilyasova has averaged 10.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game.
It is unknown how long this injury will keep Illyasova out of the lineup, who is averaging 10.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
Ilyasova left the first half of Tuesday night's 111-108 defeat after absorbing a blow to the face from Tristan Thompson. He was initially sent to the hospital for a CT scan before it was announced that he would stay overnight. His status remains uncertain for Wednesday's game against Dallas.
