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.

Date:

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.
Apr 8 - 10:26 AM

Khris Middleton (thigh) was unable to practice on Thursday.

Despite the missed practice, the good news for the Bucks is that Middleton is with the Bucks on their three-game road trip. He looks headed for a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Celtics, so make sure to check back for updates after shootaround.
Apr 7 - 1:48 PM

Khris Middleton (thigh) and Jerryd Bayless (knee) will not play on Tuesday.

The Bucks have nothing left to play for except the draft lottery, so they will continue to be cautious with Middleton. The Bucks also only have two more games this week, so Middleton's owners may need to move on in must-win situations. For what it's worth, Middleton said that he expects to play again this season.
Apr 5 - 6:36 PM

Khris Middleton (thigh) is questionable for Tuesday against the Cavs.

He did not play on Sunday with his muscle strain. The Bucks do have their draft pick and it might behoove them to rest Middleton to tank a bit. If he is out, Jabari Parker figures to slide over the three while Johnny O'Bryant gets more minutes. Damien Inglis would likelly start.
Apr 4 - 3:47 PM

Khris Middleton (strained left thigh) will not play vs. the Bulls on Sunday.

Middleton's injury wasn't announced until minutes before tip-off, in typical Bucks fashion, which is sure to burn plenty of fantasy owners. Damien Inglis will start in place of Middleton, and his absence should result in higher usage rates for Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker.
Apr 3 - 6:55 PM

Khris Middleton scored 18 points with five rebounds, four assists, two blocks, two 3-pointers and five steals against the Magic on Friday.

He's been very good with steals with over 2.0 per game in February (2.8) and March (2.1). Middleton also added very nice numbers across the board in March with 18.1 points, 3.7 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.2 blocks and 1.8 treys on 47.9 percent from the field and 92.3 percent from the line. His contract looks pretty good.
Apr 1 - 11:32 PM

Khris Middleton finished Wednesday's road loss with a career-high 11 assists, to go along with nine points, two rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Middleton shot just 3-of-7 from the field but the dimes more than compensated for his quiet scoring night. The Bucks' loss was their fourth in five games, dropping them to 30-42 on the season, and they're limping through the final stretch without Michael Carter-Williams or O.J. Mayo. The good news for fantasy owners is that Middleton is on pace to play in all 82 games, and there's no suggestion that he'll be rested.
Mar 23 - 10:11 PM

Khris Middleton scored 27 points with one rebound, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

Revenge game? Middleton was coming in cold with just 11.7 points per game in his previous three. His minutes have also dropped in his last four games with all four resulting in fewer than 33 minutes. He's obviously fine and is a must-start player.
