Khris Middleton scored 18 points on 6-of-17 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 49 minutes.
He hit a clutch shot late in regulation to get this to overtime. Middleton continues to be the floor spacer in the Bucks offense, which is absolutely essential with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Michael Carter-Williams yet to develop some range to their games. Even with Jabari Parker coming back next season, expect the Bucks to match all reasonable offers this summer for the restricted free agent. Apr 23 - 11:22 PM

Khris Middleton scored 22 points on 8-of-20 from the field against the Bulls on Monday with six boards, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He played 38 minutes tonight, which was up from just 34 in Game 1. Middleton continues to play well after his terrific post-break averages of 16.8 points, 4.4 boards, 3.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 treys in 35.3 minutes. He's earned some serious money.
Apr 20 - 10:43 PM

Khris Middleton scored 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

For some reason, coach Jason Kidd was a little late bringing Middleton into the game during the fourth quarter. Middleton does have sub-par numbers against the Bulls and his 41.2 percent from the field against them is his lowest among any opponent with at least three games this season.
Apr 18 - 9:40 PM

The Bucks secured the No. 6 seed with Sunday's win vs. Brooklyn, aided by Khris Middleton's 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, four rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Middleton didn't turn the ball over in 30 minutes and he's rolling over his past three games, giving fantasy owners a final push during his career-best season. He doesn't get much fanfare but Middleton has been a steady top-70 fantasy value (8-cat) with career-high averages of 13.3 points on 46.2 percent shooting, 1.5 triples, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game.
Apr 12 - 5:52 PM

Khris Middleton scored 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds, two assists and six steals in Friday's win over the Knicks.

Middleton is one of the better waiver wire pickups this season and he has leveled out as a top-40 value in his new role as primary scorer for the Bucks.
Apr 11 - 1:01 AM

Khris Middleton hit 7-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes on Wednesday.

Middleton has been so steady and productive, without blowing anyone's mind, we hadn't blurbed him since March 26. He's averaging 14.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, shooting 41 percent. And if Giannis Antetokounmpo misses any more games, Middleton could be even better.
Apr 8 - 11:50 PM

Khris Middleton scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers against the Pacers on Thursday.

He’s been fantastic as a spot-up shooter all season, but he’s also been an above-average player in isolation. Middleton has seen his usage rate rise to 21.6 since the break, which is up from 18.4. What’s even more impressive is he’s logging 10 more minutes per game since the break — he now ranks first in total minutes played since the break. He’s emerged as an early-round guy in fantasy right now.
Mar 26 - 10:56 PM

Khris Middleton scored 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting Sunday, adding seven assists, five rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and five turnovers through 39 minutes of action.

Middleton has been logging heavy minutes during the month of March with the Bucks banged up, averaging 19.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 2.4 three-pointers per game over 38.8 minutes of action. He's exploded onto the scene in Milwaukee, and he's cruising along as a top-50 player this season. He's going to be a hot commodity this offseason.
Mar 22 - 6:27 PM

Khris Middleton played 55 minutes against the Nets during Friday's 129-127 loss, scoring 29 points with eight rebounds, six assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

This game was just ridiculous and the Bucks pulled down 81 rebounds. Middleton continues to be a big part of the offense and he should get even more looks because any shot Michael Carter-Williams takes is usually not optimal. Middleton is going to be paid big bucks this offseason.
Mar 21 - 12:17 AM

The Bucks will match any offer for Khris Middleton this summer when he enters restricted free agency according to the Racine Journal-Times.

He has emerged as arguably the No.1 scoring option on the team since Brandon Knight bolted town, and the Bucks obviously want him to be a key part of the future. Any NBA team that wants to pry Middleton away in free agency will have to offer a ridiculous amount of money to test the Bucks' resolve, and it should make for an exciting story in the summer. He is averaging a staggering 22.4 points, 4.2 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 3.2 3-pointers over his last five games, and it's pretty obvious that the guy is going to be a wealthy man very soon.
Mar 15 - 9:16 AM

Khris Middleton made 6-of-21 from the field against the Pacers on Thursday for 18 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He scored 30 points on Wednesday and it's hard to believe we're seeing Middleton shoot the ball this much. The Bucks changing point guards really seems to help Middleton and it's help his usage rare rise to 22.8 in his last 10 games. Middleton looks like a top-30 guy going forward, which would have sounded crazy back in December.
Mar 12 - 10:28 PM

Khris Middleton destroyed the Wizards on Saturday during a 91-85 win, scoring a career-high 30 points with nine rebounds, one assist, two steals and six 3-pointers on 11-of-20 from the field.

He hit a slew of clutch shots and his ability to get his own open look has been a big reason why he's breaking out this season. Middleton was also horrible on defense last year, but he's really grown in that department too. He's thrived since Jabari Parker (knee) went down and is going to get a ton of money in the offseason. Middleton has been an early-round guy for about two months and he's done nothing to suggest he'll slow down.
Mar 8 - 12:07 AM

Khris Middleton shot just 6-of-20 from the field on Tuesday, but still finished with 20 points, three 3-pointers, seven boards, six assists, two steals and one block.

He made all five of his free throws and didn't turn the ball over, putting him a few made shots away from a pure nine-cat gem. Middleton has been one of the nicest surprises this season and his scoring is even more essential with Brandon Knight in Phoenix, so he's poised for steady top-50 value down the stretch.
Mar 4 - 12:03 AM

Khris Middleton scored 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting against the Jazz on Saturday, adding six boards, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He is arguably Milwaukee's best weapon on offense now that Brandon Knight is no longer in town, and he has now scored in double digits in twelve straight games. In case it's not already obvious, Middleton is a must-start player and should continue to be a stud for the rest of the way.
Mar 1 - 12:01 AM

The Bucks fell at home on Sunday, 86-97, despite getting 19 points from both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

Middleton made 6-of-12 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with one 3-pointer, four boards and five assists, and he's emerged as an elite fantasy option over the past month. In his last dozen games he's averaging a stellar 16.2 points (54.2 percent FGs, 91.3 percent FTs), 1.6 threes, 5.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.1 steals. He does a little bit of everything, so the arrival of Michael Carter-Williams shouldn't throw him off, and his lucky owners can sit back and enjoy the production.
