Khris Middleton broke out of his shooting slump on Wednesday, going 8-of-14 from the field with three 3-pointers for 19 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.
Middleton came in shooting a combined 11-of-42 shooting in his past three games (26.2 percent), so this was a welcome change of pace. Milwaukee is in a virtual tie with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed, and just two games separate them from the No. 9 seed Bulls. They're playing for their postseason lives, in other words, so key guys like Middleton shouldn't have to worry about DNPs or rest down the stretch. Mar 29 - 11:21 PM

Khris Middleton (head) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Middleton required three stitches to close a gash in his forehead on Tuesday, but he was never expected to spend any time on the sidelines. Malcolm Brogdon, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker will join him in the starting five for tonight's game.

Khris Middleton required three stitches to close a gash in his forehead following a freak collision with Marco Belinelli during Tuesday's win over Charlotte.

Middleton was still able to log 35 minutes on Tuesday, and it doesn't sound like he's in jeopardy of missing Wednesday's game vs. Boston. Owners can expect official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
Mar 29 - 9:36 AM

Khris Middleton played through a stomach illness on Tuesday and had 14 points and five rebounds on 4-of-12 shooting.

It was a pretty empty line for Middleton tonight, but he's been pretty awesome since returning from his torn hamstring. He fought through his stomach problem tonight and should bounce back in his next one.
Mar 28 - 10:17 PM

Coach Jason Kidd said that Khris Middleton (stomach virus) will play Tuesday vs. Charlotte.

Middleton missed shootaround this morning, but fortunately is feeling better. Fantasy owners can breathe a sign of relief and feel comfortable inserting him into their starting lineup. Middleton is averaging 16.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 treys over the Bucks last 15 games.

Khris Middleton (stomach virus) missed shootaround this morning and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

The flu bug has claimed many a victim this season. Here's hoping that Middleton is not added to the list of players that have been forced to miss a game. If Middleton is unable to suit up, Mirza Teletovic would likely see the biggest bump in playing time. Tony Snell and Jason Terry may log a few extra minutes as well.
Mar 28 - 1:05 PM

Khris Middleton needed 17 shots to score 14 points on Sunday, connecting on six attempts while adding six rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers without a turnover in 35 minutes.

Middleton had an atrocious night vs. Atlanta on Friday, going 1-of-13 from the field with three turnovers, and he's going through a prolonged slump at a brutal time for fantasy owners. He's too good to struggle much longer, though, and should benefit from a cupcake matchup with the Kings' defense on Wednesday.
Mar 26 - 6:19 PM

Khris Middleton shot 1-of-13 from the field and only scored six points, but the Bucks won their third straight game in a 100-97 win over the Hawks on Friday.

With the win, the Bucks are now tied with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed in the East. Middleton played 32 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three turnovers, but this will likely be an outlier in what has been an incredible month -- he was averaging 18.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 triples in his previous 13 games.
Mar 24 - 11:43 PM

Khris Middleton racked up 26 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 11-of-22 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's big 93-90 win over the Blazers.

Wow. He was worth the wait if you stashed him long before he came back and there was some risk involved, as no one was really sure how he'd look or fit in with the new-look Bucks. He's been fantastic, averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. With the Bucks fighting for their playoff life and seeding, Middleton should continue to roll the rest of the way. He's also played in all 12 of the Bucks' March games, scoring in double figures in all of them.
Mar 22 - 1:15 AM

Khris Middleton scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The minutes were solid and he likely would've been in the mid-30s had the Bucks been in this game. Middleton is heavily involved in the offense and is playing on the ball a lot more than expected after he said he was focusing more on shooting late in his rehab. We're not expecting him to rest until the Bucks have something clinched, so keep rolling Middleton out there.
Mar 19 - 1:33 AM

Khris Middleton scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

He missed his only two 3-point attempts, but finished 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line with two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Middleton has played 30+ minutes in nine out of his last 10 games and hasn't rested since Feb. 27, so double check to make sure he's active for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors in Golden State.
Mar 18 - 1:24 AM

Khris Middleton played 33 minutes on Saturday vs. the Wolves, finishing with 11 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one steal on 3-of-9 shooting (5-of-5 FTs).

He didn't play up to his usual standards and missed all three of his triples, but the big takeaway is that he played 33 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back set after playing 37 minutes on Friday. His hamstring is obviously holding up well and it helps that the Bucks are No. 8 in the East and riding a six-game winning streak. He could be responsible for a lot of fantasy championships over the next few weeks.
Mar 11 - 10:38 PM

Khris Middleton scored 21 points vs. the Pacers on Friday, shooting 7-of-14 from the field.

The big takeaway tonight is that he played a season-high 37 minutes, so it's going to be interesting to see if he plays on Saturday vs. the Wolves on the second night of a back-to-back set -- It is a home game and Middleton played both games of a back-to-back set on Mar. 3 and Mar. 4 (both at home), so his chances of suiting up are probably pretty good with the Bucks moving up to No. 8 in the East with their win tonight. Middleton added three rebounds, two assists, one steal, three triples and seven turnovers, and he should be an early-round player the rest of the way if he stays healthy.
Mar 10 - 10:45 PM

Khris Middleton made 7-of-9 shots with four 3-pointers to score 18 points on Wednesday, adding four assists and three rebounds in 28 minutes vs. the Knicks.

The Bucks are riding a four-game winning streak and Middleton's return to form is a big reason for the success. He added one steal and one block without any turnovers tonight, and is producing exactly what fantasy owners hoped for when stashing him prior to his early return from hamstring surgery.
Mar 8 - 11:42 PM

Khris Middleton kept it rolling in 32 minutes on Monday with 13 points, five rebounds, eight assists, one block and two 3-pointers against the 76ers.

The assists have really been a surprise for Middleton, who also had nine on Friday. Even with the Bucks up big, Middleton still saw 8.5 minutes in the fourth quarter, so clearly the Bucks are trying to stretch out Middleton's minutes. He looks like a league-winning pickup and is way ahead of schedule.
