Milwaukee Bucks superstar swingman Khris Middleton is ready to make his return after missing his team’s last three games. Middleton suffered an injury to his left knee during the game against Boston on Dec.13.
Head coach Mike Budenholzer said after Tuesday’s practice, he expects Middleton to be back against the Rockets on Wednesday. Middleton collided with teammate Rodney Hood and hyperextended his knee.
Middleton has missed 11 games this season after going through the health and safety protocols in November. He averages 17.8 through 21 games with Milwaukee going 15-6 in those games.
Coming back from injury is a welcome sight for the Bucks, as the team is currently decimated by injuries and illness, with Giannis Antetokoumpo still out after entering health and safety protocols.
