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. Nov 28 - 10:30 AM

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.

Khris Middleton (left hamstring surgery) is expected to miss six months, and the Bucks are reportedly inquiring about trades for a swingman to fill the void.

Middleton's "status for the [2016-17] season is unclear," according to Shams Charania of The Vertical, and GM John Hammond said in a statement that Middleton "[will be] out for a significant period of the season." Giannis Antetokounmpo was already going to get all the minutes he can handle, and Middleton's absence thrusts more minutes onto guys like Rashad Vaughn, Malcolm Brogdon, Matthew Dellavedova and Michael Carter-Williams. That said, we won't know the full fallout until a firm timetable is established and the Bucks make any subsequent moves.

Khris Middleton has a torn hamstring that will require surgery, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The report speaks for itself and Middleton should have a timetable measured in months, not weeks. It's a devastating blow for the Bucks and any fantasy owners who drafted early, making Middleton a tough guy to target early in leagues without an IR spot. His absence will have a domino effect for Milwaukee, potentially opening extra minutes for Matthew Dellavedova, Michael Carter-Williams, Jason Terry and Giannis Antetokounmpo, while Rashad Vaughn and Malcolm Brogdon will likely fight for the SG during camp.

Khris Middleton said that he will be "more than happy" to remain in Milwaukee.

"I've been seeing a lot of rumors and tweets about that," Middleton said of the recent trade rumors. "Right now I'm in Milwaukee but you never know. It's good that other teams want me but I'll be more than happy to stay in Milwaukee." The Celtics were linked to Middleton prior to the draft, but the Bucks haven't given any indication that they are looking to move him.

The Celtics are reportedly trying to execute a deal that will net them Khris Middleton.

In recent days the Bucks have labeled guys like Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker as "untouchables," but that hasn't stopped Boston from peppering them with offers. The Bucks are trying to move Greg Monroe, and the Celtics would be willing to take him on if Middleton was a part of the package. Boston is reportedly offering the No. 16 and 23 selections in the 2016 draft and another player, although sources of CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report that a draft-day trade is "possible, but unlikely."

Khris Middleton admitted that he wasn't in great shape at the beginning of the season.

"I definitely wasn't where I needed to be," Middleton said. "That's something I'll work on this summer is being ready from Day 1." Middleton didn't want to get hurt before signing his massive contract, but he said he plans on getting ready for the next campaign much sooner this time. Middleton returned top-30 value in standard 9-cat leagues this season with averages of 18.2 points, 4.2 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 44.4 percent shooting from the field and 88.8 percent from the line, so he is going to be a hot commodity in fantasy drafts next season.

Khris Middleton did not score in eight minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He only played eight minutes because the Bucks likely wanted to tank a bit here. They did successfully, but they'll only be in the 8-10 spot with most of the lottery teams losing as well. Middleton obviously won't be losing playing time next year after finishing the season with third-round value in standard leagues. The Bucks stole him from the Pistons.
Apr 13 - 11:49 PM

Rashad Vaughn, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe will start on Wednesday.

This could be a good day to tank because the Bucks have the same record as the Nuggets and Kings. It doesn't look like they will, so start your Bucks like you normally would.
Apr 13 - 7:18 PM

Khris Middleton (thigh) returned in style on Sunday, dropping 36 points on 14-of-24 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs with nine assists and six rebounds in an overtime win vs. the 76ers.

Middleton was initially listed as 'doubtful' so his availability was a bonus for owners who stuck with him during his three-game absence. He rounded out his line with four steals and one 3-pointer, and his six turnovers are a mere blip in such a productive game. All signs point to Middleton being ready to go for the Bucks' final games on Monday and Wednesday.
Apr 10 - 8:09 PM

Khris Middleton (thigh) will start Sunday vs. the 76ers.

Middleton will be returning from a three-game stint on the sidelines, which will result in fewer minutes for Rashad Vaughn and Greivis Vasquez. Middleton will draw an extremely favorable matchup against the 76ers today, so go ahead and get him active.
Apr 10 - 3:45 PM

Khris Middleton (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

The Bucks have been tanking for a couple weeks and may hold out Middleton for that reason. Middleton is still with the team, so we should have an official update later this afternoon. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker will both be solid plays in DFS if Middleton sits, while Tyler Ennis is a nice option if you're looking to save some money. Rashad Vaughn and Johnny O'Bryant would also play more, but they have very little upside.
Apr 10 - 11:04 AM

Khris Middleton (thigh) is out for Friday night's game against the Celtics.

According to this report, Middleton might play on Sunday. The Bucks are right in the middle of a tank war and could find their lottery spot somewhere in the 6-11 range, so it makes sense to rest Middleton. Tyler Ennis, Rashad Vaughn and Johnny O'Bryant should play more.
Apr 8 - 6:17 PM

Khris Middleton (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

He didn't practice on Thursday, but the good news is that he's day-to-day and he did travel with the Bucks. We should know more after shootaround, but his owners need to have a backup plan ready. Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo will continue to carry a heavy workload on offense if Middleton misses more time.
