Khris Middleton scored 19 points with four rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.
He had another slow start in this game and was part of the reason why the Bucks were in a hole at half. After making his season debut on Feb. 8 for a torn hamstring, Middleton was able to get to 33.0 minutes per game in March and didn't miss any of those 18 games in that span. He was also handling the ball much more than expected despite some talk of him being more of a shooter. Things are certainly looking up for Middleton as he heads into his age-26 season. He'll be an early-round pick in drafts next season. Apr 27 - 10:14 PM

Khris Middleton (illness) will start in Game 6 against the Raptors.

He is feeling better and was able to play through his illness from Game 5 on Monday. Middleton didn't look right on both ends of the court on Monday, playing 36 minutes with eight points, six assists, five steals and one turnover. He's only made 38.5 percent from the field with 0.8 treys per game in this series, so his offense isn't as good as it was during the regular season. He'll see a lot of Norman Powell and could have a bounce-back game.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Although he’s had some issues with his shot, he’s been able to improve as a facilitator this postseason. His assist rate is up 5.7% to 23.2% and he leads the team with 5.4 assists per game. He took at least 13 shots in the first four games and dropped 20 points twice. His price has dropped a bit across the industry and if he can put together a complete game as a passer and scorer now that he’s feeling better, he could be a huge asset.

Khris Middleton (illness) did not practice on Wednesday, but Jason Kidd expects him to play in Game 6 against the Raptors on Thursday.

Middleton played through the illness in Game 5 on Monday, but he didn't look quite right going 3-of-8 from the field, so hopefully, with some extra rest he'll be able to get closer to 100 percent for Game 6. Check back for another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.
Apr 26 - 12:55 PM

Khris Middleton (illness) struggled in Game 5 vs. the Raptors with eight points on 3-of-8 shooting.

He didn't seem like himself and wasn't looking for his shot tonight, but he was able to salvage his line with six assists, three rebounds, five steals and one turnover in 36 minutes. To make matters worse, he was torched on the defensive end by Norman Powell. "You got to know how it feels to get your [butt] kicked," coach Jason Kidd said. "And that’s what happened tonight." With their season on the line, the Bucks will look to even the series up in Game 6 on Thursday.

Khris Middleton (illness) will play in Monday's Game 5 against the Raptors.

Middleton skipped shootaround, but he was never expected to miss tonight's game. Jason Kidd will stick with the same starting group tonight featuring Malcolm Brogdon, Tony Snell, Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker.

Khris Middleton (illness) is currently going through his pregame routine.

Middleton sat out shootaround with the illness, but he's fully expected to play in Game 5 tonight. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Apr 24 - 5:10 PM

Khris Middleton missed the Monday morning shootaround due to a sore throat.

To be clear, he's still fully expected to play in Game 5 vs. the Raptors on Monday. Through the first four games of the series, Middleton has posted averages of 15.0 points, 5.3 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 triples, but he's only shooting 38.6 percent from the field.
Apr 24 - 12:09 PM

Khris Middleton made 4-of-13 from the field for 10 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers in 36 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

Not only did he struggle on making shots, Middleton just didn't seem locked in during this game. The Raptors didn't put DeMar DeRozan on Middleton as much, so maybe coach Dwane Casey gets some credit for that adjustment. Middleton is still going to get big minutes and the off game was more about just not being in a rhythm. Expect a bounce-back game in Game 5 on Monday.
Apr 22 - 5:39 PM

Khris Middleton scored 20 points with three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

That's back-to-back 20-plus scoring games for the first time since his hamstring tear. Middleton's defense was fantastic in this game and he's turned it up a notch as a creator on offense. He played 41 minutes in each of the first two games and didn't play in the final 5:56 of this game due to garbage time, so he was headed for minutes north of 40 again. Clearly, his breakout season last year was no fluke.
Apr 20 - 11:11 PM

Khris Middleton made 4-of-15 from the field for 10 points with two rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 41 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

He couldn't get his shot to fall, but Middleton did a great job on defense and getting the ball to his teammates. Despite talk of him focusing on his shooting before he returned from his hamstring tear, Middleton has created a lot for his teammates and is doing a lot of driving. He's said he's not all the way back from his injury, but he's clearly going to be a major factor in this series.
Apr 15 - 9:51 PM

Khris Middleton (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Mirza Teletovic could be moving into the starting five tonight with Giannis Antetokounmpo (rest), Tony Snell (rest) and Matthew Dellavedova (rest) all unavailable, so he could be someone to look to as a potential 3-point streamer in deep leagues. Greg Monroe, Malcolm Brogdon and Michael Beasley are also worth considering as potential DFS targets tonight.

Khris Middleton (rest) is listed as out in the game notes for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Things aren't official just yet, and it would be a bit strange for Jason Kidd to rest Giannis Antetokounmpo, Tony Snell and Matthew Dellavedova on Wednesday with the No. 5 seed a realistic possibility for Milwaukee, but maybe he'd rather get matched up with the Raptors instead of the Wizards. If all these guys do indeed sit out Wednesday's regular-season finale, Malcolm Brogdon would make for an alluring DFS target.
Apr 11 - 6:39 PM

Khris Middleton scored eight points on 3-of-11 shooting vs. the 76ers on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, two assists and three steals in 33 minutes.

That's four duds in a row for Middleton, and while fatigue may be a factor, he can't afford to take any time off in the final two games with the Bucks playing for seeding. He's shooting just 34.0 percent from the field over his last four, but he's he bound to bounce back and at least he's being very productive in other categories such as rebounds, steals and assists.
Apr 8 - 10:03 PM

Khris Middleton fouled out against the Pacers on Thursday, scoring 10 points with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

In a 32-second span, Aaron Brooks drew two offensive fouls on Middleton to foul him out. Just when it looked like Middleton was about to go on a roll coming into last weekend, he's cooled off in his last three. In that span, he averaged just 10.6 points, 3.3 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys. Middleton should rebound for the next game on Saturday and should be starting in all leagues.
Apr 6 - 9:18 PM

Khris Middleton scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting vs. the Thunder on Tuesday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was the only starter to hit double figures and none of them played more than 24 minutes in the blowout loss. Middleton added just two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple, but he should be able to get back on track on Thursday vs. Indiana.
