Vitor Faverani had arthroscopic surgery will will miss the rest of this season.
There has been talk of Faverani getting surgery for almost a month now and he finally opted to go through with it. The surgery was to repair a torn lateral meniscus and he should be ready to go for next season. Faverani is a candidate to play in Orlando Summer League and this surgery shouldn't affect his status in a few months.
Ersan Ilyasova has been suspended one game for punching Reggie Evans on Wednesday.
He will serve that suspension tonight against Anthony Davis and the Pelicans. Ilyasova gave Evans an unnecessary shove in an ugly loss and the suspension is certainly warranted. With Ilyasova out, the Bucks will likely go with more Jeff Adrien and John Henson tonight. Henson might not be able to play bigger minutes since he's been a bit lead-footed, so Adrien might get the bigger chunk of minutes. The video of the infraction is attached in the link below.
Nerlens Noel has started going through 1-on-1 workouts in his rehab.
"He's slowly doing a little more physical stuff," coach Brett Brown said. "He's slowly doing a little more and you can play him against another body. I highlight the word `slowly' and I highlight the word `cautiously,' but he's doing it." Noel still doesn't have a timetable to return, but taking on contact is a big step. He's not worth stashing in most leagues despite the complete mess at center for the Sixers.
