Khris Middleton to miss 3-4 weeks with left thigh contusion

From NBA media reports

The Milwaukee Bucks will be without All-Star Khris Middleton for the next several weeks, the team announced Monday evening. The news came after both Shams Charania of The Athletic and Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel first reported the news.

Middleton reportedly will miss 3-4 weeks with a left thigh contusion, which was suffered during the Bucks’ 121-119 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.

Although Middleton will miss significant time, Charania reports there’s no “serious damage” in the leg of the 28-year-old forward.

Middleton is averaging 18.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists over 10 games this season. The Bucks (7-3) will likely turn to young guards Sterling Brown and Donte DiVincenzo — as well as veterans Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, Wesley Matthews and Kyle Korver — to fill Middleton’s minutes.
