Khris Middleton will reportedly miss the next 3-4 weeks due to an MCL sprain he suffered on Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls.
Middleton left in the fourth quarter after falling awkwardly on an attempted drive to the rim. He posted 18 points, five rebounds, and eight assists in 33 minutes before he exited for the last time in Milwaukee’s 114-110 loss to Chicago. The first-round series between the Bucks and the Bulls are tied up 1-1 and will shift to Chicago for the next two games.
The Bucks were 44-22 with Middleton in the lineup but 7-9 without him
