Khris Middleton could miss entire series vs. Boston




 

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports Bucks All-Star Khris Middleton could miss the entire potential second-round series as he continues to recover from a sprained MCL. Middleton suffered the injury on April 20 and although he initially was supposed to be reevaluated in 1-2 weeks, Wojnarowski says the team anticipates him missing even more time. "There's not a sense that he's going to get reevaluated at two weeks and then all of a sudden be back at practice and be ready to play," Wojnarowski said Wednesday on NBA Today. "That's a benchmark in this process. But the Bucks certainly, they're on the cusp of getting by the Bulls here. They may have to get through another series, a conference semifinal, before they may have the opportunity to get Khris Middleton back in this season."

#Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer says that with the #Celtics series starting early, they will be without Khris Middleton for Game 1.
But that break between Games 2 and 3 could be big for the all-star. - 10:15 PM

Bucks/Celtics will be dynamite, especially if Middleton can make it back by Game 3. Might be best series of the playoffs - 10:02 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Bucks-Celtics is going to be an awesome matchup. Hope Middleton gets healthy to make it even better. - 9:45 PM

Bucks need more time to allow Khris Middleton's knee to heal, so I suggest letting the Bulls win Game 5. - 12:00 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Kevin Durant has 7 early points: A one-legged running baseline middy and a spot-up 3, plus two free throws. A welcome sign for Nets fans and sports bettors taking Durant's scoring over alike. - 7:16 PM
