Khris Middleton said he doesn't know what his role is this season.
He is probably going to be the odd man out with the Bucks' two best assets playing the same position as him. Middleton was one of the team's best offensive players last season and shot an impressive 41.4 percent from beyond the arc, but his minutes will likely take a significant hit in 2014-15.

Khris Middleton said he's going to work on getting stronger and get better at creating his own shot in the offseason.

He also said he wants to become a better defender in his cliché answer in an interview with the Bucks. Middleton had 77.4 percent of his buckets come off an assist, so he definitely could improve in scoring on his own. The Bucks are likely to change their roster, but Middleton's strong finish makes him a possible pick late in drafts.

Khris Middleton scored 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting (2-of-3 from deep, 5-of-7 from the line) with three rebounds, four assists and two steals on Monday.

Middleton has finished up strong the last few weeks and should be in most lineups.
Apr 14 - 10:02 PM

Khris Middleton hit 6-of-15 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, three rebounds and an assist in Saturday's loss.

The points and threes were nice, but he has the capability to be a lot better in rebounds and assists than he was tonight. He should finish up the season on a high note for the dreadful Bucks.
Apr 12 - 9:34 PM

Khris Middleton hit 7-of-11 shots for 17 points, three triples, three boards and two assists in Friday's 119-116 win over the Cavs.

Middleton was due to start heating up after a prolonged stretch of sub-40 percent shooting and he's well worth owning right now. Zaza Pachulia scored 16 points with eight rebounds, four assists and a steal, Brandon Knight had 24 points, three treys, four rebounds, four assists and two steals, and Ramon Sessions rounded out the box with 20 points, three rebounds and seven assists for the now predictable Bucks.
Apr 12 - 1:56 AM

Khris Middleton made another start for the Bucks and hit 6-of-14 shots for 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in a loss to the Pacers.

Middleton is finishing the season on a high note, averaging 12.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games, making him worth owning in most leagues right now.
Apr 9 - 11:54 PM

Khris Middleton made 6-of-9 from the field vs. the Raptors on Saturday for 20 points with one board, three assists and six fouls.

He didn't make any 3-pointers, but did make all eight attempts from the line. Middleton has gone cold from deep and hasn't made any of his eight attempts this month after a solid 38.0 percent in March, which has been a big part of his appeal on the stat sheet. He's a borderline player to own in standard leagues depending on what you need.
Apr 5 - 11:09 PM

Khris Middleton scored 10 points on 2-of-4 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes on Friday.

Middleton did not have a three, steal or block and that keeps him in the doghouse right now with fantasy owners. In the midst of a shooting slump, it's possible he bounces back but whether or not there will be time to react to that trend is another story.
Apr 5 - 1:17 AM

Khris Middleton got back on track with 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting (including two threes) with two steals and one block in Monday's loss.

Middleton had been struggling but this game could signal that it's time to get him back in lineups. If he has been dropped, give him strong consideration for pickup in 12-team formats. He has been a top-100 play over the last 30 games.
Mar 31 - 11:30 PM

Khris Middleton logged just 20 minutes after hitting only 2-of-10 shots from the field on Monday, finishing with four points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

Middleton has sunk like a stone in fantasy leagues lately and now O.J. Mayo is around to steal his minutes. Mayo left the game and did not return due to an undisclosed injury, so perhaps that encumbrance has finished running its course, and it goes without saying that Mayo's standing with the team is a game-to-game question mark. Middleton has some stash appeal, in particular for next week's four-game slate, but he can't possibly be a must-own player at this time.
Mar 25 - 2:09 AM

Khris Middleton shot 4-of-14 from the field for 11 points with four boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes vs. the Warriors on Thursday.

Now that the Bucks lost another guard with Nate Wolters (hand) going down, that means even more minutes should go to Middleton. The Bucks did run quite a bit of three-guard sets and now they kind of lack the required equipment to do that unless they bring O.J. Mayo from out of the depths of the bench. Middleton is worth owning in standard leagues despite his underwhelming shooting numbers.
Mar 21 - 1:44 AM

Khris Middleton missed his first eight shots, but bounced back to finish with 18 points, six rebounds and five assists before fouling out on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-17 shots and 4-of-7 3-pointers.

Middleton hit just 3-of-12 shots for eight points on Sunday, but had a big second half tonight. If he was dropped in your league after his recent struggles, he might be worth a pickup in case he's going to get hot again.
Mar 19 - 1:18 AM

Khris Middleton's cold spell continued on Sunday vs. the Bobcats, making 3-of-12 from the field for eight points with two boards and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The milk has gone bad for Middleton over his last four, shooting just 30.4 percent from the field for just 8.3 points per game. The Bucks have no other offensive options at small forward and Middleton is still involved in the offense, so his fantasy owners just have to hope he starts to click.
Mar 16 - 4:11 PM

Khris Middleton finished Saturday's road loss with six points on 3-of-10 shooting, one rebound and two assists in 27 minutes, marking his worst performance in weeks.

It wasn't too much worse than Thursday's 4-of-15 shooting display, but at least he dished out four assists and stole the ball three times in that game. Middleton has been a steady middle-to-late value over the past month, helping owners with 3-pointers, steals, FT percentage and low turnovers, so in most cases owners should hang onto him and hope that he quickly recovers from this pair of lousy games.
Mar 15 - 2:49 PM

Khris Middleton scored just eight points against the Hawks on Thursday with two rebounds, four assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

His shot was off and he made just 4-of-15 from the field. It's tough to watch Middleton when he can't get it going on offense because his defense is a major weakness on the other end. That said, there's no competition for him and he should be owned in all standard formats.
