Ekpe Udoh injury tests Bucks frontcourt depthPosted by Inside Hoops
It didn’t take long for the Milwaukee Bucks’ power forward depth to be tested.
Reserve forward Ekpe Udoh suffered a strained left knee in the team’s preseason opener against Cleveland on Tuesday, and Bucks coach Scott Skiles said Udoh would be sidelined 10 days to two weeks.
Fortunately for the Bucks, they have starter Ersan Ilyasova, Drew Gooden, Larry Sanders and rookie John Henson. All four can play power forward.
“We don’t think it’s anything serious with Ekpe, but we are very deep there,” Skiles said. “We are going to play at least two or three games without him and see where it goes.
“We’d like him ready for opening night (Nov. 2 in Boston). We’ll just go by what the doctors say.”
