Health has been a major struggle for Khris Middleton during the 2022-23 season. After missing the first 20 games of the year following offseason wrist surgery, Middleton is now in the middle of another lengthy absence due to a knee injury.

The All-Star appears be getting closer to a return, and fans are eager to see him back on the court. Here's the latest on the situation.

Latest Khris Middleton Injury Update (Jan. 17)

There is optimism growing around Middleton returning for the Bucks soon. He's recently gotten in some practice time with Milwaukee's G League squad, and he's now been recalled by the Bucks.

This could mean Middleton's return is imminent. The swingman has missed the team's last 16 contests while he recovers from an apparently significant knee problem. He initially suffered the injury on Dec. 15 against the Memphis Grizzlies, which is the last time he was in the lineup for the Bucks.

Milwaukee has grown accustomed to playing without Middleton this season, but Mike Budenholzer would love to have his sharpshooting wing back on the floor. Middleton's suited up in just seven contests in 2022-23, and his minutes were capped when he was active, so the Bucks haven't seen their No. 2 at full strength all year.

Middleton's return would help lessen the load on Giannis Antetokounmpo's shoulders and give Milwaukee a major boost in the second half of the season. His status warrants a close eye in the coming days.
