The latest injury status of Khris Middleton
UPDATE (Mar. 27):
Khris Middleton scored 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt), grabbed 8 boards, dished out 5 assists, and stole 2 balls over 29 minutes during Saturday’s 129-106 loss to the Nuggets.
After sitting out Friday’s rout of Utah to manage his knee injury, Middleton returned for the second game of Milwaukee’s back-to-back.
In 8 of the Bucks’ last 10 games, the veteran forward has played 31.4 minutes per game, averaging 19.1 points, 7.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.0 steals.
UPDATE (Mar. 25):
Khris Middleton missed Friday’s game while his sore right knee was managed, but he is expected to play Saturday.
UPDATE (Mar. 24):
Khris Middleton (knee) has been ruled out of Friday’s contest against the Jazz.
Middleton was a late addition to the injury report, and he ultimately won’t play in the first leg of the Bucks‘ back-to-back.
With Middleton unavailable, expect Pat Connaughton to slide into the starting lineup and see an uptick in minutes. Middleton’s next chance to return to the court will be Saturday against the Nuggets.
UPDATE (Mar. 22):
Khris Middleton and Ingles combined for 26 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in Milwaukee’s 118-111 victory over the visiting Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
Over his past three games, Middleton is averaging 22.3 points, seven assists and four rebounds while shooting 51.2 percent overall and 47.6 percent from 3-point range.
UPDATE (Mar. 19):
Khris Middleton finished Thursday’s 139-123 loss to the Pacers with 16 points (6-15 FG, 0-5 3P, 4-4 FT), 1 rebound, 7 assists, and 1 block in 33 minutes.
Middleton got back into the starting lineup Thursday after sitting out the second half of a back-to-back set Tuesday. The veteran wing had trouble finding his shot, but for the fourth time in his last five games, he gave out at least seven assists.
During that time, Middleton has averaged 20,2 points, 7.8 assists, and shooting percentages of 44, 42, and 90.
UPDATE (Mar. 16):
Khris Middleton (rest) isn’t on the injury report ahead of Thursday’s game against the Pacers.
After missing the second game of the Bucks’ recent back-to-back, Middleton will get back into the lineup. During his four-game starting streak, he has posted averages of 21.3 points, 8.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.3 steals. He has a solid 43/43/86 shooting line since the All-Star break.
UPDATE (Mar. 14):
Khris Middleton is ready on Tuesday’s game against the Suns.
UPDATE (Mar. 07):
Middleton is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game in Orlando due to a resting ailment, but he is expected to play.
Having sat out the second game of a back-to-back on Sunday, Middleton will be ready to go Tuesday night, and if Jrue Holiday (neck) is unable to play, he may see an increase in his shooting attempts. Because the Packers do not have any back-to-backs in Week 20, Middleton should be available for all three contests.
UPDATE (Mar. 05):
Khris Middleton (knee) isn’t on the Bucks’ injury report, the 31-year-old forward will likely be held out of Sunday’s matchup with Washington as it is the second leg of a back-to-back.
UPDATE (Mar. 03):
Khris Middleton (knee) isn’t on the injury report for Saturday’s game versus the 76ers.
Middleton will play Saturday after missing the last game because of an injury to his right knee. But the 31-year-old forward is likely to miss Sunday’s game against Washington because it is the second game in a row. Middleton should still play between 20 and 25 minutes per game against the 76ers.
