This will be the first time these two teams have met this season. On Sunday, the Washington Wizards will play the Milwaukee Bucks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Will Khris Middleton JOINING on Sunday’s game? Injury Report for Bucks – Wizards
- Khris Middleton
Middleton (knee) will miss Sunday’s game against the Wizards.
Middleton has only played seven games this season after missing a month and a half recovering from offseason wrist surgery, and he will now miss an eighth straight game due to right knee soreness.
Pat Connaughton and Joe Ingles will benefit from his absence indefinitely. Middleton will have another chance to play against the Wizards on Tuesday.
Beal (hamstring) is questionable for the Bucks game on Sunday.
Beal has missed the last two games due to a strained left hamstring, but he could return against Milwaukee. If he remains out, Corey Kispert will almost certainly keep his starting spot for Washington.
- The Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks currently sit in second place in the Eastern Conference, 2.5 games behind the Boston Celtics.
They score 112.9 points per game and shoot 48.1% from the field. This team ranks 17th in points per game and 24th in team shooting percentage.
On the defensive end of the court, the Bucks have been difficult to beat. They currently allow 110.5 points per game and allow opponents to shoot 45.4% from the field.
This is the sixth-lowest point total allowed per game, as well as the second-lowest field-goal percentage allowed.
