Milwaukee Bucks will have to play their next games without star forward Khris Middleton.

As Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer revealed, Middleton has tested positive for Covid-19. Consequently, he has entered the health and safety protocols of the NBA.

“Yeah. We thought he just had a head cold or some type of non-COVID illness. And then didn’t feel good again the next day. And got tested and has come back positive,” Budenholzer told Eric Nehm of The Atheltic.

Without Khris Middleton in the lineup, the Bucks lost to the Utah Jazz on Sunday night (95-107). They have currently lost three staraight and dropped to 3-4.

With Khris Middleton in the roster, the Bucks have emerged as a betting favorite to defend their title. Visit top betting website Pickswise for the latest odds in all NBA games.
