Ilyasova's status was confirmed through the Bucks official Twitter feed.
Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) will not be available for the Bucks tonight. John Henson will get the start in his place. #MILvMINJohn Henson played well in Ilyasova's absence, scoring 10 points, grabbing eight rebounds and blocking two shots, in 32 minutes. Jeff Adrien saw additional playing time as well, scoring 12 points and hauling in seven rebounds in 20 minutes.

Ilyasova has been playing well of late, but he's had trouble staying on the court, missing 14 games this season due to injury. The Bucks have four games left this week, so expect Adrien and Henson to continue to benefit, should Ilyasova miss extended time.
Ilyasova, the 26-year old from Turkey, is in his sixth NBA season. Last season he averaged a career high 13.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. This season, Ilyasova is averaging 11 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
