Bucks' Udoh leaves game with wrist pain

Bucks forward Ekpe Udoh left Sunday's game in Brooklyn with left wrist pain and did not return.

Bucks forward Ekpe Udoh left Sunday's 97-88 victory in Brooklyn with left wrist pain and did not return.


Udoh came out after committing a shooting foul on Nets center Andray Blatche with 9:33 left in the second quarter, finishing with three points, two assists and two blocks in 12 minutes.


Inserted into the starting lineup last Saturday, Udoh entered Sunday's game averaging 5.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 22 minutes per game. While his stats don't jump out, Udoh's impact goes beyond numbers on the defensive end.


Already playing without forward Mike Dunleavy and guard Beno Udrih, the Bucks were able to overcome the injuries, build a big lead and stave of the Nets comeback attempt to pick up a big road win. Milwaukee now has road wins against Eastern Conference favorites Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Brooklyn.


Udoh's status for Wednesday's game against Sacramento at the BMO Harris Bradley Center is unknown.
