After three games at home where they were booed by fans of playoff teams, the Nets get a break, traveling to friendly Milwaukee for a more normal match-up against the Bucks, all but eliminated from the playoff race. The Bucks would have to win all three of their games and the 76ers lose all three of theirs to get in. Other than that, there's not much at stake, other than determining lottery position and giving younger players a shot.

Deron Williams status won't be determined till Saturday morning and the Nets decision to keep Armon Johnson is not necessarily evidence that the Nets' captain will be held out again with a sore right calf. The Nets like Johnson and may try to keep him next season. If D-Will can't play, expect the last D-League call-up of the season to get more time but against Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings.

The Bucks on the other hand must be hurting after a late season slump. They've lost three straight and five of the last six. One focus for Nets fans will be the match-up between Ersan Ilyasova and Kris Humphries. Ilyasova, according to reports, is a Nets' off-season target while Hump wants to stay. Ilyasova, however, is day-to-day with a deep thigh bruise. The Bucks will be without Larry Sanders, suspended by the NBA following a fight in Thursday night's game vs. Indiana.
