Today NBA:

The Bucks enter this game after a 139-118 loss to the Boston Celtics. They struggled on both ends of the court, and if they want to challenge the Bulls on the road, they will have to be more aggressive in this game.

  • Khris Middleton’ injury status

Khris Middleton (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Wednesday, according to Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer, but Middleton was able to participate in parts of Tuesday’s practice, according to Eric Nehm of The Athletic.

Khris Middleton has missed five straight games due to right knee soreness and will miss a sixth on Wednesday after missing the first month and a half of the season with a wrist injury. Middleton is getting closer to returning to game action, according to Budenholzer’s comments, but given that the All-Star wing has only played in seven games this season, it’s safe to assume he won’t be fully recovered for a while.
