Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2009-11-11

Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2009-11-11The Bucks didn't pick up the third-year option on Joe Alexander's contract, but he could still be a contributor to the team this season.

At least that's the opinion of Bucks coach Scott Skiles.

Skiles said that once Alexander is fully recovered from a hamstring injury -- he is expected to be sidelined until late December -- he would be receptive to using the 6-foot-8 combo forward.

"It would depend on how we're doing," Skiles said. "It would depend on our other injury situation. It would depend on how Joe is playing.

"If Joe comes back and gets healthy and plays well in practice and it's a situation where we feel like we need him, absolutely, I'd put him in for sure."

Skiles seldom played Alexander last season after the Bucks made the latter the eighth overall pick in the NBA draft. But Alexander played well in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and then at Tim Grgrich's camp.

There was speculation Alexander would vie for a starting spot this season, but then he partially tore his hamstring just before the start of training camp. He hasn't played since.

Skiles said he believes Alexander still has the potential to be a good pro player.

"Unfortunately for Joe, we haven't seen enough of him to where we were ready to commit to next year (on his contract)," Skiles said.

"There's plenty of season left, there's next summer. There's nothing written in stone. We still like Joe."

BUCKS 102, KNICKS 87: The Bucks, unlike the Knicks, came to play Saturday night at the Bradley Center. The Bucks outscored the Knicks 22-4 in the paint in the first quarter en route to a 40-22 lead. By halftime, the Bucks led 66-35. Bucks center Andrew Bogut virtually had his way against the Knicks' soft interior defense, finishing with 22 points in only 31 minutes.
