A sprained right wrist and soreness in his knees will keep Drew Gooden out of the lineup Friday when the Milwaukee Bucks face the Magic in Orlando.
Head coach Scott Skiles told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Gooden, who has been starting at center in place of Andrew Bogut, did not join the team on the trip to Orlando but might be able to join the team Sunday when it travels to New Jersey to face the Nets.
"It's not impossible that he would meet us in Jersey," Skiles told the J-S at the team's morning shootaround. "But we left him home to get multiple treatments and see how he responds."
In the 13 games since Bogut went down with a broken ankle injury in Milwaukee's 105-99 victory at Houston Jan. 25, Gooden has averaged 17.4 points and 7.0 rebounds. He has scored 20 or more points six times and only once finished in single digits.
In all, Gooden has appeared in 27 of the Bucks' 29 games this season, making 17 starts. He's averaging 12.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game while shooting 43.3 percent from the field.
Skiles said that Jon Leuer and Ersan Illyasova will start Friday at power forward and center, with Luc Richard Mbah a Moute coming off the bench. br>

For the first 42 minutes of Friday's game in Orlando, the Bucks were in control of the Magic. Playing without Drew Gooden due to a sprained right wrist and knee soreness, Milwaukee's group of undersized forwards did enough on All-Star center Dwight Howard to keep the Bucks in the lead since the early minutes of the game.
However, Milwaukee did not score a single point over...
The Internet has seen a lot of trickshot videos from amateur hoopers from around the world, but Milwaukee Bucks forward Jon Brockman shows ‘How it’s done’ with his latest video. Brockman pulls an assortment of creative shots out of his arsenal including: Mike Tyson-style where he punches the ball into the hoop with an oversized...Read the Rest...
Both of these videos have been being passed around the Internet today. First, the Bucks Jon Brockman wows us with a variety of trick shots. Just lighting up the Bradley Center from all angles. Second, we have a kid in the 90's showing a mini-hoop he means business. This is Jordan-like stuff from a basement. So my question is, which is more impressive? OR...I'll say one thing...
MILWAUKEE When Andrew Bogut saw his season put on hold with a broken ankle, the Bucks had no choice but to turn to Drew Gooden to fill the void at starting center.
He's struggled in his last two games, (7-of-27 from the field, 23 points, 12 rebounds) but overall, Gooden has provided adequate coverage in the low post, despite being undersized and often seemingly overmatched...
Bucks forward Jon Brockman might be better at trick shots than he is at actual basketball. As TBJ points out, he makes more shots in this video than he’s made in games this season.
But, sometimes, that’s how it’s done.
The cold war between Stephen Jackson and his coach Scott Skiles continues to quietly rage on in Milwaukee, as the Bucks pray that they can find a trade partner prior to the deadline for the disgruntled forward. From the Journal Times: “After Stephen Jackson was benched for the second half of a game against Denver Jan. 17, I asked the Bucks veteran swingman whether he had any inkling...
The Magic closed the game on a 17-0 run as the Bucks lost their fourth straight game and suffered their 12th consecutive defeat in Orlando. Carlos Delfino led Milwaukee with 16 points.
Hedo Turkoglu scored 10 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter as the Orlando Magic dominated the final period to take a 94-85 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
After 21 lethargic minutes, the Orlando Magic finally woke up against the Milwaukee Bucks.
