Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova worth a look on waivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:50 pm ET) In the fallout from Jabari Parker's torn ACL, the Bucks are left with a massive hole in their rest-of-season plans. Not only was Parker the team's long-term offensive centerpiece, but he was also already second on the team in minutes played as well.

At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at the possible replacements for Parker on the Bucks' roster, headlined by Khris Middleton and Ersan Ilyasova:

"Middleton wasn't a great shooter in college, but has now connected on 39.9 percent of his 3-point attempts in the NBA, on a pretty hefty sample size. He should slot in nicely at small forward if the team opts to stick him there, and already showed he can be a solid Fantasy option last season, when he averaged 13.3 points, 2.4 assists and 1.7 3-pointers per game in 64 starts a year ago.

If Middleton is the priority as a Parker replacement, Ilyasova is the dark horse. Personally, I'm not terribly interested in adding Ilyasova, though I was consistently one of his biggest boosters last season. He has simply struggled to consistently produce, even when given a chance, and is shooting just 29.6 percent on 3-pointers since the end of the 2012-13 season, on 179 attempts."

Middleton is worth adding in nearly all category-based formats, especially if you are in need of a replacement for Parker. Ilyasova is also worth a flier, given how well he played prior to a broken nose, but is by no means a must-add option.

Bucks' Jabari Parker done for season with torn ACL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Bucks forward Jabari Parker will miss the remainder of his rookie season after an MRI on his injured knee revealed a torn left ACL, the team announced Tuesday. The team did not reveal a date for his surgery.

Parker, the Bucks' first-round draft pick this year and the second player chosen overall, was carried off the floor Monday after his knee buckled in a collision with Suns forward P.J. Tucker while making a drive to the rim. He appeared in 25 games and ranked second among all rookies in scoring with 12.3 points per game. He's also second in field goal percentage (.490) and third among rookies in rebounds (6.5) and minutes (29.5) per game.

Ersan Ilyasova and Khris Middleton will likely see an increase in minutes as a result of Parker's season-ending injury.
