Milwaukee Bucks big man Ersan Ilyasova left Tuesday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after suffering a facial contusion. He will not return to the game.

Ilyasova had nine points in 12 minutes of action, but caught an inadvertent elbow from Tristan Thompson while going up for a rebound in traffic. Ilyasova was noticeably affected by the collision, and was unable to return after trying to shake it off.

UPDATE:

UPDATE (9:18 p.m.) --

Hopefully the injury isn't too serious. Fingers crossed.
