Found October 28, 2013 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
MILWAUKEE -- With the season opener looming on Wednesday, the Milwaukee Bucks got good news on the injury front Monday. Reserve forwards Carlos Delfino and Ekpe Udoh were the only two players to sit out Monday, as point guard Brandon Knight (left hamstring), small forward Caron Butler (left ankle), point guard Luke Ridnour (back) and Gary Neal (illness) returned to practice. The biggest news of the day was Ersan Ilyasova's return to the practice floor after missing nearly three weeks with a sprained right ankle suffered in the preseason opener in Cleveland on Oct. 8. Knight missed Milwaukee's last two preseason games with a sore left hamstring, while Butler turned his ankle on Oct. 23 against New York. "We had everybody today," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "I didn't recognize some of the faces. It was good to get everybody out there with Ersan and Brandon being out. It's just good to get bodies back." While Knight, Butler, Ridnour and Neal wi...

Ersan Ilyasova practices again, status for opener still in question

ST FRANCIS, Wis. -- Ersan Ilyasova made it through practice for the second consecutive day Tuesday, but Milwaukee Bucks coach Larry Drew will wait until Wednesday to determine if his starting power forward can play in the season opener in New York. Ilyasova returned to practicing five-on-five Monday for the first time since spraining his right ankle in Milwaukee's preseason opener...

Bucks head coach Larry Drew wants to change team's vibe

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- From the moment Larry Drew walked in for his first interview with the Milwaukee Bucks, he knew exactly what was going to be the first thing asked of whoever was chosen as the team's new coach. The franchise was in need of a serious change of culture. "I was fully aware of that," Drew said. "That's one of the things I'm totally committed...

Ersan Ilyasova on mend, has chance to be ready for opener

Ersan Ilyasova reported no problems after taking part in the Bucks' 5-on-5 practice session Monday at the Cousins Center. If he feels good again Tuesday, it's possible the 6-foot-10 power forward could be ready for the season opener against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. Ilyasova suffered a right ankle sprain in the Bucks' first preseason...

Milwaukee Bucks: John Hammond Is Currently the NBA’s Top Drafter

Milwaukee Bucks: John Hammond Is Currently the NBA’s Top Drafter By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff.. Milwaukee Bucks’ GM, John Hammond isn’t close to being among the best NBA executives when it comes to trades or signing free agents, in fact it is arguable that he is among the poorest in the league when it comes to those aspects of being a general manager. The...

Larry Sanders' former agent suing Larry Sanders' current agent

Andy Miller of ASM Sports agency is suing the current agent of his ex-client, and Milwaukee Bucks defensive specialist, Larry Sanders. The claim is very simple. Larry Sanders just made big bucks (no pun) by re-signing with the Bucks, and his former agent (Miller) missed out on the payday, and is seeking more than $6.6 million in damages. Sanders recently inked a $41 million contract...

2013-2014 Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks are the antithesis of the so-called Oklahoma City model (i.e. being terrible for a spell and then drafting a few studs to slowly morph into a contender).  Their owner, Herb Kohl, is notoriously insistent on fielding (or trying to field) a winning team, and as a result Milwaukee, while never really being a true contender since around the turn of the century...

Slip up with Bucks court leads to NBA inspection

When the Milwaukee Bucks laid down a new court design at BMO Harris Bradley Center, everyone liked the unique design. It was a callback to Milwaukee's championship days in the 1970s and featured a wood grain design that would be truly unique in the NBA. There is plenty to say for NBA courts being an artistic outlet in the NBA, an expression of a team's personality. They...

Milwaukee Bucks have most paradoxical, ironic promotion ever

The Milwaukee Bucks new partnership and ticket-sales gimmick is just weird. Bizarre. Ironic. Strange. Likely unprecedented in the history of sports. Remember when the Milwaukee Bucks made the playoffs for the first time since forever a couple years ago and they had the “Feer the Deer” slogan? It was cool because it rhymed and it made think of Milwaukee Bucks as fierce, strong...
