ATLANTA (AP) - Milwaukee center Andrew Bogut missed Wednesday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks with a bruised knee, but point guard Luke Ridnour returned after missing a game.Dan Gadzuric started for Bogut.
Coach Scott Skiles said he liked the 6-foot-11 Gadzuric's size.
"We don't want to start games too small," Skiles said before the game. "It's one thing to go small at some point in the game, but Danny's done a pretty good job on the interior defensively."
The Bucks also were without Michael Redd, who suffered a right ankle sprain on Nov. 2. Redd did not travel with the team and is not expected to return until next week.
Ridnour missed Monday's 108-101 loss in Orlando after suffering a scraped and bruised knee at Charlotte on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Hawks forward Josh Smith missed his 10th straight game with a sprained left ankle. Coach Mike Woodson said Smith is expected to travel with the team for games at Toronto on Friday and at Washington on Saturday but may not play before next Wednesday's home game against Memphis.
