Ilysova's recent increase in minutes can be attributed to the injuries that the Bucks have had to endure. John Salmons has been out with a hip injury for his last 8 games and Drew Gooden has been out for his last 6 games with plantar fasciitis. Kings guard Tyreke Evans, was plagued by a similar injury, a little over a month ago.
Ersan Ilyasova has been very efficient with the minutes he has been given. In the past month, he has scored double-figures in every game where he has played 30+ minutes. If you need a short term pickup for points, steals and rebounds Ilyasova may be your guy.
Some even say that he looks like Josh Hartnett. <------------You be the judge------------>
