Milwaukee Bucks injury

Middleton was slated to miss the first three weeks of the season after having off-season left wrist surgery.

Although the Bucks are undefeated out of the gate, their are times when there is a glaring hole on offense without him, specifically when the teams shooting goes cold. This is when the Bucks desperately miss his shooting, scoring and even his defensive prowess.

Khris Middleton is clearly the second best player on the Milwaukee Bucks, and his importance of the team has never shown stronger than in his absence.

The Milwaukee Bucks can pretty much always count on 20 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists when Middleton is healthy. He is also the teams best shot creator, obviously an elite shooter, is a very good playmaker and a solid wing defender, not to mention an underrated passer, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo are an absolutely lethal pick and roll combination.

Connaughton will be out for three weeks due to a right calf strain, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

According to Eric Nehm of The Athletic, Bucks general manager Jon Horst stated on Sunday that Ingles (knee) will be able to return sometime in January.
