The Journal-Sentinel on the Buck's rotation

It all happened within a few minutes during the Bucks' game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis one week ago.

Guard Beno Udrih crashed into the camera crew behind the basket, going down with a sprained right ankle.

And forward Mike Dunleavy got clipped in the back of his left knee.

Just like that, Milwaukee's delicate balance took a hit. The Bucks' bench that had been one of the most productive in the National Basketball Association lost two key members.

Udrih escaped serious injury but was lost for at least a couple weeks. Dunleavy missed two of the next three games, playing in New Orleans on Monday night but feeling too sore to play in San Antonio on Wednesday night.

Add to that coach Scott Skiles' lineup shuffling as Larry Sanders moved from the bench into the starting lineup against the Spurs, and Marquis Daniels and Ekpe Udoh became starters two games earlier against Boston.

And now add Ersan Ilyasova and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to the bench mix, with Ilyasova finding his game a bit after struggling as a starter and Mbah a Moute working his way back in shape following knee surgery.

It's all a combustible mix right now as the suddenly struggling Bucks seek to keep up with Indiana and Chicago in the Central Division race.

Not directly addressed is Skile's just changing things too quickly and not allowing the team to gell as a group.

The Udrih and Dunleavy injuries really hurt. At this pace though Skiles will be gone after this season.
