Khris Middleton cracked the 20-point plateau for the first time this season in Monday's 129-125 win in Brooklyn.
Middleton was moving very well on Monday and showed flashes of the player that emerged as a star last season. He finsihed with 20 points, seven assists, three rebounds, three steals and just one turnover in 26 minutes. He was 7-of-13 from the floor and a perfect 5-of-5 from the charity stripe, including four clutch free throws to ice the game in the closing minute. As he rounds back into shape, Middleton has a chance to be a real difference-maker in fantasy leagues over the final two months of the season. Feb 15 - 10:37 PM

Date:

Khris Middleton hit 4-of-7 shots for 11 points, two rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

He sat out his previous game on Saturday to rest, but was back at it tonight. It's going to take him some time to shake off the rust and start putting up big numbers, but there's a decent chance he'll be a valuable fantasy asset after the All-Star break. If you own him, just hang in there with him until his minutes restriction is gone, which could happen some time after the break.
Feb 13 - 11:19 PM

Khris Middleton (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Pacers.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and his owners probably knew this was coming. Middleton played 21 minutes against the Lakers even though he was only expected to see around 16 minutes, so his owners should be feeling encouraged about his outlook after the break. He scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting, adding six assists, one board, one triple and three steals. The big lines are coming, so be patient for the next 2-3 weeks. Expect Tony Snell and Malcolm Brogdon to pick up his minutes.
Feb 10 - 11:11 PM

Khris Middleton is expected to be around 16 minutes again for Friday against the Lakers.

He also could play a few more minutes. Middleton has been going "full throttle" in practice since January, so he's had a couple weeks to get up to speed. With Jabari Parker (knee) going down, Middleton's upside on a given night gets even higher. He should be owned everywhere.
Feb 10 - 6:32 PM

Khris Middleton made his hotly-anticipated season debut on Wednesday, scoring five points on 2-of-5 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and one block in 15 minutes of action.

Middleton was on a 15-20 minute limit that should stay in place until the All-Star break. "I don’t know how long it will take me to play my regular minutes from last year, but I’m going to take it slow," Middleton said. He returned ahead of his timetable and has demonstrated early-round upside, so he shouldn't be on a single waiver wire. His return is bad news for Malcolm Brogdon and Tony Snell, not to mention the playoff hopes of other Eastern Conference teams vying for the No. 8 seed.

Khris Middleton (hamstring) will play 15-20 minutes off the bench in his regular-season debut Wednesday vs. the Heat.

The last time Middleton played in a game was April 13 of 2016, so expect him to be brought along slowly after the lengthy layoff. That being said, there's top-30 upside here, so make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire.
Feb 7 - 2:25 PM

Khris Middleton (hamstring) said that he will make his season debut on Feb. 8 against the Miami Heat.

Wow. First things first, pick him up in all fantasy leagues and don't think twice about it -- he was a top-30 player in standard leagues last season. Prior to the season, Middleton wasn't even a lock to play before April so he has shattered his original timetable. He's going to have restrictions right out of the gate and could be limited for a while, but he could be a league winner for fantasy owners who've been stashing him. His return will eventually push Tony Snell to the bench, but the value of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker will be safe.
Feb 3 - 9:55 PM

Khris Middleton (hamstring) went through a full contact on Wednesday and is getting closer to return.

He is not going to be on the current three-game road trip, so he won't play on Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. Middleton also said he wasn't going to rush back. "I had a good practice yesterday," Middleton said. "I've been ready for a while, but I've got to be smart about it, make sure I'm 100 percent ready." The sense around the team with multiple reports is that Middleton is targeting an All-Star break return, and Middleton said today "there's a chance" he can make it back before the break. He will likely be managed upon his return, but it makes sense to stash him in just about all formats right now.
Feb 1 - 2:10 PM

Khris Middleton (hamstring) has been aiming for a return near the All-Star break, according to C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

This is the third different report to talk about a possible return near the All-Star break. Middleton has been doing some stuff at practice and has been doing some 1-on-1 since early this month. The Bucks will be managing his minutes, so it may be until late March until he's consistently contributing for your team. If you have a big lead or have a spare I.R. spot, give him a look.
Jan 19 - 4:24 PM

The Bucks are "increasingly hopeful" that Khris Middleton (hamstring) could return in early- to mid-February, according to ESPN sources.

The same sentiment was echoed by ESPN's announcers during Wednesday's game. Middleton previously said that he hoped to play just after the All-Star game, and the Bucks' organizational optimism is even more encouraging. There are no firm return dates, to be clear, and Middleton remains a very risky stash unless you have multiple IR spots or the luxury of a huge lead in your league.

Khris Middleton (hamstring) said he's not running at full speed yet.

He said he does do some 1-on-1 every couple weeks and he's working on getting his hamstring stronger. Middleton has done light leg workouts and said he can do "pretty much anything" in individual workouts. He still has a long way to go, but Middleton still is shooting for a target date just after the All-Star Game. He's a bit of a luxury to stash at this point because he's not a lock to play this year.

Khris Middleton (torn left hamstring) remains confident he will return this season, although no timetable has been established.

Middleton is traveling with the Bucks this week and informed reporters that he has been doing some light jogging and shooting. "I’m making good progress within the last couple weeks but I’ve still got a long way to go," Middleton said. "I feel like I’ll definitely be back this year, barring a setback or anything like that." Middleton said the earliest he thought he could return was around the all-star break in mid-February. Although he admitted that is the best-case scenario, "That was just if everything went perfectly." If your league has an IR spot, he's worth stashing.

Khris Middleton (hamstring) said that he's still hopeful of returning at some point this season.

"I’ve been doing some shooting; I’m just trying to get back into a little shooting form,’’ Middleton said. "I’m doing a lot of mid-range shooting, maybe with one or two dribbles. I’m just trying to move around. Nothing strenuous." The Bucks gave him a timetable of sixth months after he had surgery on his left hamstring, so if that timetable holds up it means he could play in the final 13 games of the season. There are obviously no guarantees, so Middleton is going to be very tough to stash in leagues without IR slots.

The Bucks announced that Khris Middleton underwent successful surgery on his left hamstring.

According to the Bucks, Middleton is expected to miss around six months. It's possible Middleton could be held out for the entire season, especially since this timetable has him returning around late march to early April. Rashad Vaughn is expected to start in his place, but Malcolm Brogdon is a huge threat to his workload and the Bucks could also bring in some additonal help on the wings. Expect Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker to benefit the most.

Khris Middleton will undergo surgery on his left hamstring on Wednesday.

Middleton added that he has no timetable for a return, but previous reports have indicated that he will miss around six months of action. This was a huge blow for the Bucks because Middleton was quickly becoming one of the premier two-way wings in the East. Rashad Vaughn is expected to start in his place, but Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker will do the heavy lifting for the Bucks.
