On Monday, November 14, 2022, at 5:00 PM ET on BSSE and BSWI, the Atlanta Hawks (8-5) will look to Trae Young (ninth in the NBA, 27.4 points per game) to help them beat Giannis Antetokounmpo (fourth in the league, 31.8) and the Milwaukee Bucks (10-2).
Final injury update Milwaukee Bucks – Atlanta Hawks
Khris Middleton will miss the game for the 12th time in a row.
Middleton averaged 20.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game last season and was selected to his third straight All-Star Game.
He’s one of the team’s top three players, so it’s impressive that the Bucks are off to a 10-1 start in their first 11 games without him.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is expected to play Monday against Atlanta. Antetokounmpo has missed three of the last four games due to a knee injury, but he should be able to return to the court on Monday.
He averaged 31.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, and 5.3 assists in 33.0 minutes per game in his first nine games.
Grayson Allen (illness) is expected to play on Monday against the Hawks.
Allen missed Friday’s game against the Spurs due to a non-COVID illness, but he should be able to return on Monday.
He has scored in double figures in all four of his games this season, averaging 14.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists in 28.5 minutes per game.
Jrue Holiday (ankle) will miss the game against Atlanta on Monday. He’ll miss his third game in a row, but the Bucks will almost certainly benefit from Giannis Antetokounmpo’s (knee) return on Monday. Jevon Carter should continue to see increased run in Holiday’s absence.
Beauchamp’s status for Monday’s game is listed as questionable. The rookie strained his calf against the Spurs on Friday, but his status does not appear to be jeopardized.
Trae Young scored 26 points (7-21 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 10-10 FT) in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday. He also had three rebounds, seven assists, and one steal.

The stats show that he is performing admirably; hopefully, he will perform even better in the upcoming game against the Bucks.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) will miss Monday’s game against the Bucks.
He has yet to make his season debut due to offseason knee surgery. His next appearance will be against the Celtics on Wednesday.
