Ersan Ilyasova, coming off an 18-point game off the Bucks bench, played just 13 minutes and failed to score in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Knicks.
So much for that, although internet rumors suggest he was under the weather tonight. Ilyasova has been the hottest topic in fantasy hoops this season, as Rotoworld, along with everyone else, had him pegged for a big season in Milwaukee. But Scott Skiles is in his head and simply benched Ilyasova tonight, despite him playing well on Monday. Ilyasova's owners are going to be at the end of their collective rope after this one, and he's going to be dumped in a lot of leagues in the next 48 hours, sick or not. It's impossible to tell if he'll ever get back in the good graces of Skiles, but it's also hard to imagine him playing so poorly all season long. If you can continue to stash him, do so. But no one could blame an Ilyasova owner for cutting bait after how things have gone thus far.
