The Milwaukee Bucks have been without their second-best player for the entirety of the 2022-23 season thus far. Khris Middleton has yet to make his debut this season, but that might change quite soon.

Khris Middleton Injury Update

The Bucks star is nearing a return and he could be on the court as soon as this Friday when the Bucks take on the Los Angeles Lakers.

While Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks have kept afloat while Middleton is out, currently holding the second-best record in the NBA at 14-5 and second place in the Eastern Conference standings, Middleton is crucial to the Bucks long-term success.

We saw how much Milwaukee struggled last season against the Boston Celtics in the playoffs, a team they likely would have been favored to beat in that series if Middleton had been available for it.

Milwaukee's next game is on Wednesday, against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, where the Bucks are a 6-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
