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.
Feb 22 - 6:07 PM

Khris Middleton stayed hot on Wednesday with 15 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals in Wednesday's win.

He hit 4-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer tonight, but somehow saw fewer minutes than Jared Dudley (nine points in 32 minutes). Middleton is rolling, and averaging 15.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.6 steals on 48 percent shooting over his last five games.
Feb 12 - 12:10 AM

Khris Middleton had his best line of the season with 21 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 7-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's OT win against the Lakers.

Middleton is really coming on and had a season-high 23 points on Monday. Jared Dudley was the hot pickup a week ago, but Middleton is now the Bucks forward you want to own.
Feb 5 - 12:21 AM

Khris Middleton scored a season-high 25 points against the Raptors on Monday with nine rebounds, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He just won't quit. Shockingly, Middleton was a top-20 player in standard leagues in January, averaging 12.9 points, 4.6 boards, 2.4 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.6 treys on 53.8 percent from the field. He's been a Kawhi Leonard-like contributor and his fantasy owners have to be loving this. He won't be this good the rest of the way.
Feb 3 - 12:06 AM

Khris Middleton continued his unbelievable start of the 2015 year with 17 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers against the Magic on Thursday.

He's been a top-20 player in the last month and is easily the best pickup in fantasy basketball in the past two months. Middleton has shown no signs of slowing down, but it's safe to say he won't be an elite guy the rest of the way. If you can unload him for a top-50 guy, it makes sense.
Jan 29 - 11:10 PM

Khris Middleton stayed hot on Tuesday with 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting, including a 3-of-4 mark from downtown.

He's averaging a steady 30 minutes per game despite Ersan Ilyasova's return and is simply on fire lately, averaging top-20 value in 9-cat leagues over the past month. If you're wondering how that's possible, consider his averages during that span (in under 30 minutes per game) -- 11.9 points, 1.5 threes, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and an elite 2.1 steals, with 50.4 percent FGs and 84.2 percent FTs. All that from a guy you snagged off the waiver wire.
Jan 27 - 10:28 PM

Khris Middleton tied his season-high with 21 points in a loss to the Spurs on Sunday, adding five boards, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He was absolutely on fire in this one, going 9-of-14 from the floor and 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. Middleton has been phenomenal in 2015, and over his last 10 games he has averaged 12.7 points, 2.4 assists, 4.8 boards, 2.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers per game. If he is somehow still available in your league, he needs to be picked up immediately.
