MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Milwaukee Bucks' backup forward Ekpe Udoh (epp-pee you'-doh) practiced yesterday for the first time since he had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee October 11th. He says it's possible he can return to action tomorrow night, when the Bucks host Cleveland.
The 6-10 Udoh said conditioning is the most important aspect -- and once he catches up with the new plays from coach Larry Drew, he'll return to a full level of aggressiveness.
Bucks' power forward Ersan Ilyasova missed practice yesterday with an ankle injury. Center Larry Sanders was away because his wife was going into labor with a child.
Point guards Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour were both limited at practice, and did not take part in full contact drills. Knight continues to nurse a strained right hamstring. Ridnour has back problems.
