Ersan Ilyasova was brought in to be part of the Bucks’ five-out offense and he has done that — he has taken 43 percent of his shots from three this season, hitting 35.9 percent of them. He’s giving the Bucks about 20 solid, veteran minutes a night.

But he won’t be giving them minutes for a little while.

Ilyasova suffered a fractured nose in practice last Sunday and has surgery to repair it Friday, the team has announced.

Ilyasova is out indefinitely, whenever he does return expect him to be in a mask for a little while.


Look for Jason Smith and Tony Snell to get some extra run while Ilyasova is out.
