Khris Middleton To Miss Six Months

Khris Middleton has suffered a torn hamstring and is slated to undergo surgery next week, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Middleton is expected to be sidelined for roughly six months, according to the team’s website. The final timetable for his return will be set after the surgery, sources tell Charania.

“We’re obviously disappointed for Khris and our team, but injuries are an unfortunate part of the game,” said Bucks GM John Hammond. “We’ll rely on our overall roster depth to help us while Khris is out for a significant period of the season.”

Milwaukee signed Middleton to a five-year, $70MM deal last offseason. In the first year of the deal, he averaged 18.2 points and 1.7 steals in 79 games. He was drafted by the Pistons with the 39th pick in the 2012 draft before coming to the Bucks in the Brandon Jennings deal.

    Monroe to Pelicans, gay to bucks, Evans to kings. Just a idea, won’t happen.

    • Bucks need shooting. Another slashing/ball dominant foward won’t fit well with that team. I could see Monroe to the Pelicans being a good trade idea though. Maybe Monroe for Asik plus another player/pick? Would give the Pelicans another guy who can score (I understand Monroe occupies some of the same space as Davis, but I imagine he’d be a better fit next to him than Asik) and Asik would give the Bucks some defense. Obviously much more would need to be thrown in from the Pelicans’ side.

        Asik can’t even play defense! He just has a big body to rebound and that’s about it! Teams keep trading him away cuz the NBA is becoming a small ball game and Asik is out of position and coaches don’t know what to do with him.
