Khris Middleton Injury: Update, History, Twitter, News
Middleton’s injury is a significant blow to a Bucks team that doesn’t have a great deal of depth.
It’ll mean more will be asked from Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday on offense, while role players like Wes Matthews and Pat Connaughton will need to start hitting shots at a consistent rate.
Both injuries prevented the Bucks from stretching as they tried to climb back from an 18-point deficit against the Bulls. But Middleton’s injury is of greater importance later in the series.
For the game on Friday, the Bucks will be without star shooting guard Khris Middleton, who injured his MCL in Game 2.
It’s a tough blow for the Bucks, because Middleton is arguably the second best player on the team behind 2021 NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said after the game that Middleton had an MCL sprain and would get an MRI on Thursday to get more information.
Middleton (knee) likely to miss the next two matches will likely play in Game 3 on Friday and Game 4 on Sunday during the first-round series against the Bulls, Shams Charaniya of The Athletic reports.
Impact Middleton sustained a sprained MCL in Wednesday’s Game 2 loss, and is expected to be sidelined indefinitely.

Middleton (wrist) will not play in Sunday’s regular-season finale against Cleveland, Evan Dammarell of Locked On Cavs reports.
The defending NBA champions raced out to a big lead, making quick work of the Chicago Bulls.
Grayson Allen made five 3-pointers and scored 22 points and Milwaukee dominated Chicago 111-81 on Friday night to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round playoff series without the injured Khris Middleton.
