Khris Middleton dropped 40 points on 14-of-26 shots in Wednesday's overtime win over the Suns, hitting 9-of-11 free throws with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and three triples in 46 minutes.
Middleton has a 33.1 usage rate this season with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) off the floor compared to 22.0 with him on, so it’s no surprise that he had a monster game against the non-existent defense of the Suns. Giannis is expected back on Saturday vs. the Jazz, but if you play DFS, keep this game in mind for Middleton if the Greek Freak misses another contest this season. Nov 23 - 12:36 AM

Date:

Khris Middleton made 12-of-21 shots and three 3-pointers on Wednesday, scoring 27 points with eight assists, six rebounds and two steals.

Middleton played 40 minutes and it was encouraging to see him so active offensively -- his 26.5% usage was second only to Giannis Antetokounmpo tonight. Despite a brief lull upon Eric Bledsoe's arrival, it didn't take Middleton long to reassert himself as a go-to player.
Nov 16 - 12:10 AM

Khris Middleton scored 13 points on 6-of-14 shooting in Friday's win over the Spurs.

This was his first game playing alongside Eric Bledsoe, and while it was a quiet night, Middleton's usage rate only took a slight hit. He played 38 minutes with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and five turnovers, but his owners can expect a much better performance in Saturday's favorable matchup vs. the Lakers in what should be a shootout.
Nov 11 - 12:31 AM

Khris Middleton scored 20 points and matched his career-high of 11 assists in Tuesday's loss to Cleveland.

Middleton's usage rate may take a hit when Eric Bledsoe arrives in Milwaukee, but he does have enough upside to still flirt with early-round value, especially if his efficiency keeps trending in the right direction. He finished 8-of-17 from the field and hit both of his free throws in 41 minutes, adding seven rebounds, three steals and two triples.
Nov 7 - 9:59 PM

Khris Middleton scored a career-high 43 points in Wednesday's 126-121 loss to the Hornets.

Coming off a 27-point game with nine assists, seven rebounds, three 3-pointers and two steals, the buy-low window was already slammed shut before this outburst. Middleton hit 15-of-28 shots and 8-of-10 free throws, adding seven assists, five rebounds and five 3-pointers. The Hornets had no answer for him with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist leaving the game early with an illness, but Middleton's owners can expect more big lines from him going forward and we already know he has early-round upside when his shot is falling.
Nov 1 - 9:39 PM

Khris Middleton blew up for 27 points, nine assists, seven rebounds, three 3-pointers and two steals in 39 minutes vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

It had been a quiet start to the season for Middleton, who was shooting 40.0 percent before going 9-of-19 in Sunday's road win. His usage rate was hovering around 25 percent and it was only a matter of time before the shots started falling, so hopefully this will open the flood-gates. The buy-low window just slammed shut.
Oct 29 - 6:21 PM

Khris Middleton hit 8-of-19 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 20 points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Hornets.

Middleton has played very well in three of his four games thus far, but has struggled with his shot, hitting just 39 percent of his shots this season. That number should rise and it was nice to see him get his first block of the season, his second 3-pointer and his third steal in tonight's game. He's fine.
Oct 23 - 10:51 PM

Khris Middleton went 6-of-13 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line during Saturday's win over Portland on his way to 18 points, six boards, three assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

The Bucks really made an effort to get him involved early, and head coach Jason Kidd did a nice job of staggering his minutes alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo to give him more opportunity to run the offense, but foul trouble limited him during the second half. Middleton’s 3-point shot hasn’t been falling through the first three games of the year, but as a career 40.1 percent shooter from distance, this is not a trend we expect to continue. Now would be a good time to try and buy-low on Khris.
Oct 22 - 12:39 AM

Kris Middleton hit just 3-of-10 shots vs. the Cavs on Friday, while misfiring on all five of his attempts beyond the arc.

Middleton finished with just eight points, but he salvaged the stat line for fantasy owners with five assists and three rebounds. He is off to a slow start from the field through two games (33.3 percent), but there is no need to worry. He has consistently been in the 44-45 percent neighborhood throughout his career.
Oct 20 - 10:32 PM

Khris Middleton scored 15 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Unlike last year when he started the season rehabbing a torn hamstring, Middleton is clearly healthy. He's expected to handle the ball more and he's shot will fall more often than it did tonight -- he was 6-of-17 from the field. He won't get the attention Giannis Antetokounmpo, but Middleton should be viewed as an early-round asset.
Oct 19 - 12:02 AM

Khris Middleton scored eight points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

After a hamstring tear last offseason, Middleton comes into this season in great shape and entering his prime at age 26. Even as he recovered from that injury, he surprisingly handled the ball a lot last year with Giannis Antetokounmpo, and that should continue again this year. He's a fine pick at the turn of the third and fourth round of a standard draft.
Oct 4 - 10:42 PM

The Bucks will reportedly offer the Cavs a package centered around Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon should the Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas swap fall through.

While both Brogdon and Middleton are certainly talented players, this package from Milwaukee would be a clear downgrade from the current deal that is in place between Cleveland and Boston. The Cavs and Celtics will have until Thursday to officially agree to the terms of their deal, and at this point, it would be surprising if Cleveland pulled out.

Khris Middleton scored 19 points with four rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

He had another slow start in this game and was part of the reason why the Bucks were in a hole at half. After making his season debut on Feb. 8 for a torn hamstring, Middleton was able to get to 33.0 minutes per game in March and didn't miss any of those 18 games in that span. He was also handling the ball much more than expected despite some talk of him being more of a shooter. Things are certainly looking up for Middleton as he heads into his age-26 season. He'll be an early-round pick in drafts next season.
Apr 27 - 10:14 PM

Khris Middleton (illness) will start in Game 6 against the Raptors.

He is feeling better and was able to play through his illness from Game 5 on Monday. Middleton didn't look right on both ends of the court on Monday, playing 36 minutes with eight points, six assists, five steals and one turnover. He's only made 38.5 percent from the field with 0.8 treys per game in this series, so his offense isn't as good as it was during the regular season. He'll see a lot of Norman Powell and could have a bounce-back game.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Although he’s had some issues with his shot, he’s been able to improve as a facilitator this postseason. His assist rate is up 5.7% to 23.2% and he leads the team with 5.4 assists per game. He took at least 13 shots in the first four games and dropped 20 points twice. His price has dropped a bit across the industry and if he can put together a complete game as a passer and scorer now that he’s feeling better, he could be a huge asset.
Apr 27 - 5:23 PM

Khris Middleton (illness) did not practice on Wednesday, but Jason Kidd expects him to play in Game 6 against the Raptors on Thursday.

Middleton played through the illness in Game 5 on Monday, but he didn't look quite right going 3-of-8 from the field, so hopefully, with some extra rest he'll be able to get closer to 100 percent for Game 6. Check back for another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.
