The latest injury status of Khris Middleton


Status: Active

UPDATE (Apr. 26):

Khris Middleton is ready for running on Wednesday’s game versus the Heat.

UPDATE (Apr. 09):

Middleton (knee) will not play against the Raptors on Sunday.

Middleton was said to be eyeing the playoffs for his return to the court on Friday, so his absence from the lineup Sunday isn’t surprising.

Middleton finished the regular season with the Bucks, averaging 15.1 points, 4.9 assists, and 4.2 rebounds on 44/32/90 shooting over 24.3 minutes per game in 33 appearances (19 starts).

UPDATE (Apr. 07):

Khris Middleton (knee) will not play Friday against Memphis.

UPDATE (Apr. 05):

Due to precautions regarding his right knee ailment, Middleton will not play in Wednesday’s game against the Bulls.

UPDATE (Apr. 04):

Khris Middleton won’t be able to play against the Wizards on Tuesday because of an injury to his right knee.
Middleton averaged 16.0 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.0 rebounds in 26.0 minutes per game in his last two games, but he will be out for the first half of a back-to-back set Tuesday.

UPDATE (Apr. 02):

Khris Middleton had to leave Thursday’s game against the Celtics because he was elbowed in the face and started bleeding. Against the 76ers, though, he is expected to play.

UPDATE (Mar. 30):

Khris Middleton should be good to go for Thursday’s matchup with the Boston Celtics.

UPDATE (Mar. 29):

Middleton’s availability for Wednesday’s matchup with the Pacers is in doubt due to an injury to his right knee.

Since Middleton still isn’t playing in back-to-back sets, it is speculated that he will sit out either Wednesday’s game in Indiana or Thursday’s game against Boston. His arrival could mean more work for Pat Connaughton and Joe Ingles (knee).

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.
