  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Won't play Friday

    Middleton (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls.

    As expected, Middleton will miss a 10th straight game Friday. His next chance to play will come Monday against the Clippers, but the veteran will presumably have to log at least one full practice before then. Jae Crowder should continue to start in Middleton's absence.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Out Thursday, unlikely for Friday

    Bucks head coach Doc Rivers said that Middleton (ankle), who has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Hornets, is unlikely to play Friday against Chicago, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports. "He may meet us in Chicago, but I don't think he'll play [versus the Bulls]," Rivers said.

    Middleton hasn't played since Feb. 6 due to a left ankle sprain, but he appears to be inching closer toward a return. After the Thursday/Friday back-to-back set, the Bucks are off until Monday against the Clippers. If Middleton is able to practice Sunday, he could have a good chance at drawing back into the Milwaukee lineup Monday.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Out again for Thursday

    Middleton (ankle) will not play Thursday against Charlotte.

    Middleton has been sidelined since Feb. 6, but he's reportedly getting closer to a return. Coach Doc Rivers has been optimistic about Middleton's progress as well. His next chance to play will be Friday against the Bulls.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Won't play Tuesday

    Middleton (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

    Middleton hasn't played since Feb. 6, but coach Doc Rivers said before Sunday's win over the 76ers that the shooting guard was "getting closer" to suiting up again. Following Tuesday's game, Milwaukee has a rematch against the Hornets on Thursday in Charlotte, but Middleton will presumably have to log a full practice before then to have a chance to play.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Remains out, but getting closer

    Middleton (ankle) remains out for Sunday's matchup against the 76ers, but coach Doc Rivers said before the game that the veteran wing is "getting closer" to playing, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports. "I don't know if I'm going to say close enough that we could think next game, but he's getting a lot closer. He's feeling a lot better," Rivers said, when asked about Middleton's rehab process.

    Given Rivers' comments, Middleton looks unlikely to be back in action for Tuesday's home game versus the Hornets, but he might be able to return for Thursday's rematch in Charlotte. The 32-year-old hasn't played since Feb. 6 due to a left ankle sprain, so he'll presumably operate on a minutes restriction when he's officially cleared to suit up.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Expected to miss next two games

    Middleton (ankle) was unable to practice Thursday, and head coach Doc Rivers anticipates Middleton missing games Friday in Minnesota and Sunday in Philadelphia, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports.

    Middleton has been out since Feb. 8 with a left ankle sprain, and his inability to practice coming out of the All-Star break isn't the most encouraging sign. Unless Middleton is able to get in some practice time Saturday or Monday, he'll likely be at risk of missing more games heading into next week. Jae Crowder, Malik Beasley, Pat Connaughton and A.J. Green are all likely to continue playing more minutes in Middleton's absence.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Won't play Thursday

    Middleton (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Memphis.

    Middleton has been dealing with a left ankle sprain for just over a week, and he'll remain sidelined through the All-Star break. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available when the Bucks return to action against Minnesota on Feb. 23, but Jae Crowder could continue to see increased run Wednesday.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Out two more games

    Bucks head coach Doc Rivers implied after Friday's 120-84 win over the Hornets that Middleton (ankle) will miss at least two more games, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports. "He's just going to be out for a minute, I can tell you that. I don't know what a minute means, but yeah, I don't see him in the next couple, for sure," Rivers said of Middleton.

    According to Nehm, general manager Jon Horst classified Middleton as day-to-day with the left ankle sprain earlier in the day, but Rivers spoke more pessimistically about the three-time All-Star's injury just hours later. Based on Rivers' comments, Middleton can be ruled out for the Bucks' upcoming back-to-back set Monday and Tuesday versus the Nuggets and Heat, respectively, which will bring his streak of absences to four games. Since the Bucks won't practice Wednesday before concluding their pre-All-Star break schedule Thursday in Memphis, it wouldn't be surprising if Middleton remained out for all three of Milwaukee's games next week.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: To remain sidelined Friday

    Middleton (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets.

    Middleton suffered a left ankle sprain Tuesday against the Suns and will be unavailable for a second consecutive game Friday. Jae Crowder (ankle), who is probable for Friday's matchup, will likely draw another start if he's cleared to suit up. Middleton's next chance to return will be Monday against the Nuggets.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Ruled out for Thursday

    Middleton (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

    The severity of Middleton's ankle injury remains unclear, but it's not a great sign that he's getting ruled out a full day in advance of Thursday's contest. Jae Crowder could be headed for a spot start Thursday, and Malik Beasley will take on a more proactive role in the offense. Middleton's next chance to play will come Friday against the Hornets, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him skip a matchup against a 10-39 team to give his ankle some extra time to recover.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Won't return Tuesday

    Middleton is out for the remainder of Tuesday's game versus the Suns due to a left ankle sprain, Eric Nehm of The Athletic reports. He will end the contest with six points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in eight minutes.

    Middleton exited with 3:57 remaining in the first quarter after Kevin Durant was assessed with a Flagrant 1 foul for entering Middleton's landing space on a jumper. Andre Jackson and Jae Crowder are candidates to receive increased minutes in Middleton's absence. X-rays on Middleton's ankle have already come back negative, but he could be sent in for an MRI as the Bucks look to confirm the severity of the sprain. For now, he looks questionable, at best, to play Thursday versus the Timberwolves.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Not listed on injury report

    Middleton (rest) isn't listed on Milwaukee's injury report for Tuesday's game in Phoenix.

    As expected, Middleton will return to action Tuesday after resting during Sunday's loss to Utah, which was the second leg of a back-to-back set. He's appeared in seven of Milwaukee's last nine games, averaging 18.4 points, 5.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 33.4 minutes during that stretch.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Resting Sunday

    Middleton won't play Sunday against the Jazz due to right knee injury management.

    As expected, Middleton will take a seat for the second half of a back-to-back set after posting 13 points and eight assists in 38 minutes during Saturday's comeback win in Dallas. Brook Lopez (personal) is out, Damian Lillard (ankle) is questionable and Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is probable, so it looks like Milwaukee will need to rely on at least a couple of reserves versus Utah. Middleton should be back in action Tuesday in Phoenix.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Posts 21 points in defeat

    Middleton posted 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two rebounds, eight assists and one block over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 119-116 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Middleton's assist totals have seen a significant rise over the last month, and he collected eight more dimes during Wednesday's loss. Damian Lillard's decision to take the ball himself against his former team was an obvious culprit in this matchup, but Middleton's ball distribution in January has pushed his season average up to 5.4 assists per game, on pace for a career high.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Absent from injury report

    Middleton (knee) isn't listed on the Bucks' injury report ahead of Monday's game versus Denver.

    Middleton took a seat for the second half of Milwaukee's back-to-back set Saturday versus New Orleans due to right knee injury management, but as expected, he'll return to action versus Denver. The veteran forward has played in 12 of the Bucks' 14 January games thus far, averaging 16.4 points (48 percent shooting), 5.8 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 29.3 minutes per game.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Out Saturday

    Middleton will not play in Saturday's contest against the Pelicans for right knee injury management.

    The Bucks are playing the second night of a back-to-back set and will opt to err on the side of caution with Middleton as a result. In his absence, Andre Jackson, Pat Connaughton and MarJon Beauchamp are candidates to see increased minutes. Middleton's next chance to play will come Monday versus the Nuggets.

  • Bucks' Khris Middleton: Versatile contributor in defeat

    Middleton ended Friday's 112-100 loss to the Cavaliers with 14 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and two steals over 36 minutes.

    Although the Bucks were unable to pick up the win Friday, Middleton flirted with a triple-double while matching his fourth-highest marks of the season in both rebounds and assists. Despite his versatile production, the 32-year-old snapped a streak of two consecutive games in which he had topped 20 points.
