Samuel Dalembert dominated with Larry Sanders injured and Ersan Ilyasova in foul trouble.
Sam Dam made 17-of-21 shots for 35 points, and the reserve center added 12 rebounds, two assists and a block. He's owned in 35 percent of Yahoo leagues, and is worth a look, especially if Sanders misses time.
Dalembert's minutes have been erratic this season. In his previous two games, he got just six and 12 minutes. The one before that? Twenty-four minutes. So he's not the safest play. But he was huge Tuesday, and he'll be getting lots of love on the wire.
Sanders injured his back trying to defend this dunk by Kenneth Faried.
He left the game, and didn't return. The Bucks sayhe'll be evaluated on Wednesday. He ended the night with 12 points, seven rebounds, an assist and five blocks in 23 minutes.
Larry Sanders suffered a lower back injury late in tonight's game. He'll be evaluated further tomorrow & is questionable for #MILvUTA.

Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders sat out Wednesday night's game against the Utah Jazz with a bruised back.

Sanders is day to day and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Samuel Dalembert.
Samuel Dalembert started in place of Larry Sanders (hip) and double-doubled with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
A day after scoring 35 points, Dalembert blocked four shots and stole four balls in 26 minutes. He's on the trade block, so his future is in question. And Larry Sanders' return from injury won't help his value.

Come halftime, he had 21. On the first possession of the fourth quarter, he topped 30. At that point he’d missed just one shot, and having made 15, he was actually besting LeBron...
JaVale McGee's return from a shin injury was memorable, not for his stat line but Samuel Dalembert's. The Bucks' reserve center lit up McGee for 35 points.
