  • Fox Sports Wisconsin: Udoh out 1-2 weeks, Lamb still uncertain
    Ryan Kartje writes that Ekpe Udoh has yet to return to practice after banging knees with Jon Leuer in Tuesday''s preseason over Cleveland win and is expected to miss at least the next week. The injury isn't considered serious and Scott Skiles doesn't expect it to impact Udoh's ability to compete for playing time, but it should mean more minutes over the next few preseason games for fellow young big men Larry Sanders and John Henson. See, silver linings.

    Meanwhile, the Bucks continue to be vague on Doron Lamb's return from a torn left elbow ligament, though we have yet to hear anything about surgery. Skiles told reporters that the rookie from Kentucky--last seen wearing a sling--has begun running and light shooting and might return late in camp. The same can't be said of Luc Mbah a Moute (knee), who is still expected to miss the entirety of camp and will have an uphill battle regaining his conditioning and timing.
  • Paschketball | Pistons/Bucks Preview
    "Since he got here in September he's been very, very good. He's strung together six weeks now
    basically of really good play...he's been under control, you know he can block shots, run the floor, you know the stuff he can do, but he's gotten rebounds in traffic with two hands, something he's struggled with in the past. He now is comfortable in our system and he's really played well. He's not had a bad day yet. He's been very good every day."
  • I'm assuming we'll see the same Bucks starting five as on Tuesday, and barring injury it's what we should probably expect to see on opening night in Boston as well. Tobias Harris looked solid playing with the starters against Cleveland and I have a very hard time seeing either Ersan Ilyasova or Sam Dalembert losing their starting frontcourt jobs in the next two weeks.
  • Piston Update. Detroit comes off a split of a preseason-opening home-and-home with the Raptors, having lost last night 82-75 in Toronto. Rookie big man Andre Drummond played just six minutes after turning in an impressive 12 points and seven rebounds in his debut.
