Ilyasova was waived by Milwaukee on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After the trade between the Bucks and Kings fell through that was supposed to send Ilyasova to Sacramento, Milwaukee has opted to waive the veteran, whose $7 million for 2020-21 was not guaranteed. The 33-year-old will likely draw some interest from other competing teams in free agency. That said, he played a minimal role with the Bucks last season, averaging 6.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 15.7 minutes.
Ilyasova will remain with the Bucks for the time being, as the deal to send him to the Kings fell through, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The key piece of the deal, Bogdan Bogdanovic, has opted to enter restricted free agency rather than engage in a sign-and-trade with the Bucks. As a result, Ilyasova, Donte DiVincenzo and D.J. Wilson -- the trio originally headed to Sacramento -- will remain with Milwaukee.
Ilyasova was traded to the Kings early Tuesday morning as part of a package that brings Bogdan Bogdanovic to Milwaukee via sign-and-trade, Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN reports.
Ilyasova is simply a salary throw-in in the deal, and it's unclear if the Kings intend to keep him around. The veteran charge-takings-specialist appeared in 63 games for Milwaukee last season, averaging 6.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 15.7 minutes.
Ilyasova (elbow) is not on the injury report ahead of Thursday's Game 2 against Orlando.
After missing Game 1 with an elbow injury, Ilyasova has been removed from the report and should be available off the bench. The veteran began to lose minutes after the team signed Marvin Williams, so he's unlikely to hold a significant role in the playoffs.
Ilyasova (elbow) will not play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Orlando.
The sprained elbow that kept Ilyasova out of the team's final seeding game will sideline him as the Bucks begin postseason play. It's not a significant loss for Milwaukee, as Ilyasvoa's workload began to wane following the addition of Marvin Williams at the deadline.
Ilyasova (elbow) is out for Thursday's game against the Grizzlies.
A sprained right elbow will keep the veteran out for the Bucks' final seeding game. With Giannis Antetokounmpo (suspension) also out, D.J. Wilson should see plenty of run in the frontcourt.
Ilyasova is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Grizzlies due to a sprained right elbow.
The Bucks will wait to see how Ilyasova feels at shootaround in the morning before making a call on his status. At this time, it's unclear if the injury will impact Ilyasova's ability to take charges.
Ilyasova racked up 12 points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds and a block in 22 minutes during Monday's 124-103 scrimmage loss to the Pelicans.
Ilyasova could stand to benefit if Marvin Williams (groin) remains sidelined at all going forward. However, when healthy, Williams figures to compete with Ilyasova for the backup power forward gig.
Ilyasova finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, an assist and a steal across 16 minutes during Monday's 109-95 loss to the Nuggets.
Ilyasova went scoreless in 15 minutes as a starter in Sunday's loss to the Suns and wasn't much better Monday despite Milwaukee holding out several players for rest or injury. Even if the Bucks continue resting players down the stretch, Ilyasova is unlikely to capture a major role.
Ilyasova will start Sunday's game against Phoenix, Zora Stephenson of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
The Bucks will be without Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) for the next two games, so Ilyasova will likely be set for a pair of starts in place of the reigning MVP. Ilyasova's rose has decreased of late since the Bucks added Marvin Williams, and he was a DNP-CD in three of the last four games.
Ilyasova (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Wednesday's 119-100 win over the Pacers.
Ilyasova was a healthy scratch, and this wasn't the first time in recent memory. The midseason addition of fellow power forward Marvin Williams has negatively impacted Ilyasova's role, and the 32-year-old veteran isn't worthy of consideration in most leagues.
Ilyasova is starting at power forward Monday against the Kings.
With Giannis Antetokounmpo (personal) ruled out for Monday's matchup, Ilyasova gets the nod in his place. His last start dates back to Jan. 28 against the Wizards, finishing with nine points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 21 minutes.
Ilyasova registered nine points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 21 minutes in Tuesday's 151-131 win over the Wizards.
There wasn't much room for Ilyasova to make an impact as Giannis Antetokounmpo's replacement, as Khris Middleton took on Giannis' role and ran with it. Ilyasova's plus-minus clocked in at plus-4, so his presence did have some effect on the Bucks' fortunes. He only registers as a fantasy value when Antetokounmpo or Middleton is sidelined.
Ilyasova will move into the starting lineup Tuesday against the Wizards with Giannis Antetokounmpo (shoulder) out, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
It'll be the fifth start of the season for Ilyasova, who's typically the next man up whenever Antetokounmpo misses time. Coach Mike Budenholzer clarified that the reigning MVP is, in fact, dealing with a sore shoulder and is not sitting out to rest, so his status will be worth monitoring in the coming days. If Antetokounmpo were to miss additional time, Ilyasova could be set for multiple starts.
Ilyasova had 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3PT), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 16 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 128-102 win over the Knicks.
Ilyasova has been heavily inconsistent, both with his playing time and his scoring figures this season. The veteran power forward has averaged 9.3 points and 6.8 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game over his last 10 outings -- he has cracked the 10-point mark five times despite logging 20-plus minutes just thrice during that stretch. He can produce on any given night, but he would be better suited to work as a streaming option in most formats due to his inconsistencies.
Ilyasova (knee) isn't listed on the injury report for Saturday's game at Portland.
Ilyasova sat on the front end of the back-to-back set Friday due to right knee soreness, but he's good to go Saturday against the Trail Blazers. The veteran forward should fill his usual role off the bench for the Bucks.
Ilyasova (knee) will not play Friday against Sacramento.
He was questionable coming in with a sore knee, and the Bucks will play it safe with one of the best charge-takers in the league. Ilyasova's next chance to play will arrive Saturday on the second night of a back-to-back against Portland.
Ilyasova is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings due to right knee soreness, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Ilyasova was held scoreless across 13 minutes Wednesday against the Warriors, though it's unclear if his knee issue impacted his performance. The team will likely re-evaluate his status following morning shootaround.
Ilyasova totaled 14 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes during Monday's 123-102 victory over Chicago.
The return of Giannis Antetokounmpo signaled the end of Ilyasova's run in the starting unit. However, Ilyasova didn't let that slow him down as he recorded his third straight double-double. Although Antetokounmpo was back in the starting lineup, this is unlikely to be a true reflection of what is to come. The game was a blowout and so the starters all had their minutes reduced. Ilyasova can be a sneaky source of points and rebounds but his role is far too volatile to declare him a must-roster player.
Ilyasova had 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-6 3PT) and 14 rebounds in Saturday's win over Orlando.
Making another start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Ilyasova played 27 minutes and notched his second double-double in as many nights. This time around, he added five assists to his ledger -- a season-high -- to go with a block and five made threes.
