Pregame notes:

• Rookie John Henson from North Carolina did not play in the first two meetings but now he is in Milwaukee’s starting lineup, averaging 6.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1 blocked shot.

• Ersan Ilyasova has been relegated to the bench after signing a five-year deal in the offseason. He did not play in Friday’s loss to Minnesota

• Courtney Lee will start for Rondo, who is eligible to return to the club for Wednesday’s home game with Minnnesota.

• (UPDATE) Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles pulled Samuel Dalembert and Tobias Harris out of the starting lineup and replaced them with former Celtic Marquis Daniels and Ekpe Udoh.
