MILWAUKEE -- Two of Milwaukee's backup guards won't be available when the Bucks play Philadelphia on Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Reserve guard Marquis Daniels is ill and will be inactive, while rookie guard Doron Lamb is out with a sprained ankle suffered during his D-League assignment. Daniels has seen his role diminish of late, averaging just 12.6 minutes per game in Milwaukee's last five games, averaging just 1.6 points per game during that stretch. Lamb's injury occurred last Friday night in his final game of a two-game stint with Ft. Wayne of the D-League. The Bucks sent Lamb to get playing time he hasn't gotten in the NBA and the second-round pick averaged 7.5 points per game but shot just 5 of 22 in two D-League games. With both guards inactive, center Joel Przybilla will be active. Przybilla hasn't seen action since playing three minutes on Dec. 19. Starting lineup change: With veteran guard Jason Richardson out with a knee injury, Sixers coach Doug Collins started Dorell Wrightin Monday's loss to San Antonio. Against the Bucks, Collins is opting to start former Bucks guard Royal Ivey over Wright because he said Philadelphia couldn't guard Bucks guards Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis with both Wright and Evan Turner in the starting lineup. Leuer traded: Former Milwaukee Bucks froward Jon Leuer is on the move again. The University of Wisconsin alumn was traded from Cleveland to Memphis on Tuesday as the only return piece of a deal the Grizzlies made to cut salary and avoid the luxury tax. Forward Marreese Speights, guards Wayne Ellington and Josh Selby and a protected future first-round draft pick were sent to Cleveland in exchange for Leuer. Under new ownership, Memphis was looking to trim payroll and not make it necessary to trade Rudy Gay to avoide the luxury tax. This move clears 6 million for the Grizzlies. Leuer, 23, was drafted by the Bucks with the 40th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft and played one season in Milwaukee before being part of the package sent to Houston for center Samuel Dalembert. The Rockets waived Leuer and he then signed with Cleveland. Averaging 2.4 points per game, Leuer played sparingingly for the Cavaliers and bounced back and forth between the NBA and the D-League.
