Middleton revealed that he tore his left hamstring last week after slipping on a wet spot on the court during a workout. Initial reports indicated that Middleton would be sidelined for approximately six months while he recovers from the surgery, but the swingman himself said he's not placing a timetable on his return. Either way, it's expected that Middleton's absence will at the very least stretch into the second half of the season, making him worth avoiding in most fantasy leagues, even as someone to stash on the bench. The
Middleton suffered a torn left hamstring that will need surgery and is expected to miss approximately six months of action.
It's unclear exactly when the injury occurred, but it's a huge blow to the Bucks' offensive attack, as Middleton is coming off a 2015-16 campaign where he started 79 games and led the team with 18.2 points per outing. Middleton is expected to undergo surgery in the next couple of weeks and will then start the long road to recovery, which is currently projected to take six months. With Middleton on the sidelines for the forseeable future, look for the Bucks to rely even more on their young tandem of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker offensively. Newly signed Matthew Dellavedova is also slated to see a much larger workload in his first season with the Bucks, although it remains to be seen who the Bucks will go with in their starting lineup. Additionally, look for the Bucks to explore any additional free agent shooting guard options left on the open market.

Middleton certainly would have liked to end his season on a better note, but this anomalous performance won't tarnish his stellar campaign. The fourth-year guard has increased his scoring numbers each year, bumping it from 13.4 points per game last season to an impressive 18.4 this time around. He'll have value as a scoring guard or forward in most fantasy formats moving forward.
Khris Middleton (thigh) exploded for 36 points (14-24 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), nine assists, six rebounds, and four steals across 43 minutes during the Milwaukee Bucks ' 109-108 overtime win versus the 76ers on Sunday.
Middleton did turn the ball over six times on Sunday, but overall he was excellent after missing the last three games with a thigh strain. Middleton's 36 points matched his career high, and he was simply unstoppable, albeit against the 76ers. A week ago it seemed as if there was a solid chance that Middleton would be shut down for the remainder of the season, but he can safely be thrown back into fantasy lineups so long as he remains active for the final two games.
Middleton missed the last three games with a thigh injury and looked doubtful to face the 76ers, but after going through morning shootaround Sunday without any issues, he's been cleared to to take the court. Considering the
