15. Carlos Delfino
Not surprisingly, the 31-year-old Delfino finds himself bringing up the caboose in these power rankings due to his injured ankle.
Unfortunately, it looks as though he'll continue to bring up the rear for the rest of the season.
According to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Delfino underwent foot surgery in Argentina on Dec. 14 and will be forced to stay off that foot for a period of eight weeks.
Assuming everything goes according to plan, that would mean he'd be able to start putting weight on it again in early February. Then, he'll need to get back into basketball shape.
And at that point, it might not be worth the risk to return this season.
14. Zaza Pachulia
Prior to fracturing his foot on Dec. 4, Pachulia was doing a decent job of providing the Bucks with a post presence in the absence of Larry Sanders.
During the 17 games he played, he averaged 6.9 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists while providing veteran leadership and a bit of attitude in the post.
As long as he's injured, he'll be nothing more than a $5.2 million cheerleader.
Given the price tag he carries with him, Pachulia needs to, at the very least, be on the court and contributing something every game.
13. Miroslav Raduljica
With Larry Sanders and Pachulia both missing time due to injuries at some point during the first half of the season, Raduljica saw more playing time than most would have anticipated.
Like the majority of Milwaukee's big men, he doesn't provide consistent production at a high level but is capable of logging quality minutes.
And at 7'0", 250 pounds, he provides a huge body in the paint both on offense and defense.
With Sanders back, he'll likely see his playing time decrease, but should anyone else get injured during the second half of the season, Raduljica should get some more minutes again and continue to improve.
12. Ekpe Udoh
Much like Raduljica, Udoh provides occasional offense, defense, hustle and is another body capable of getting physical in the post.
In fact, his 1.2 blocks per game rank third on the team, making him a vital role player off the bench, especially if Sanders or Henson get hurt or into foul trouble.
Ultimately, the Bucks know what they're going to get whenever Udoh steps on the floor, and they're probably fine with where he's at.
As long as he can continue to provide that spark, he should still be utilized.
11. Luke Ridnour
After scoring in double figures each of his prior four seasons, Ridnour hasn't been able to find a rhythm during his second stint in Milwaukee.
In fact, this might be his worst season since his first year in the league.
Sure, his minutes are down, but Ridnour just isn't producing when on the floor. He's averaging 5.6 points and 3.1 assists (both are the second lowest of his career) and shooting just 38.3 percent from the field.
Failing to produce—especially with Nate Wolters playing well—certainly won't earn Ridnour any more playing time and may lead to him being expendable at the trade deadline.
