MILWAUKEE, Feb. 7 (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks waived forward Julius Hodge and recalled forward Damir Markota from the NBA Development League on Wednesday.

Hodge was obtained with Earl Boykins in the Jan. 11 trade that sent Steve Blake to the Denver Nuggets.

Markota was sent to Tulsa on Feb. 1 and is expected to rejoin the Bucks for their game in Oklahoma City on Thursday night against the Hornets.
