NBA Rumors: Milwaukee Bucks shut down Ersan Ilyasova


It has been a rough year for Ersan Ilyasova.

He was at the center of trade rumors for part of the season and saw his production take a dip from last season.

Turns out, an ankle injury has been bothering the Bucks’ forward and is likely one of the reasons for his struggles.

According to C.F. Gardner of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Bucks are shutting Ilyasova down for the rest of the season.

 

Ilyasova averaged 11.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season.
