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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Out for season Right ankle soreness Open link
Ilyasova met with doctors on Wednesday and the team has decided to shut him down for the remainder of the season due to lingering right ankle soreness. Ilyasova first injured his ankle during the season's first preseason game, and has never fully recovered. No surgery was recommended, but he said he has swelling in the joints of his ankle and needs to rest it for at least two months. Jeff Adrien will step into the starting lineup in his place, with John Henson and Ekpe Udoh seeing additional run off the bench.
