Milwaukee Bucks wing Khris Middleton has entered the NBA's Health and Safety Protocols. At this point, it's unknown if Middleton tested positive for COVID-19, or if he was deemed a close contact. That designation will determine how many games Middleton may miss.
Through six games, Middleton has averaged 20 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists.
Middleton's absence is the latest in a long list of illness/injury issues for the Bucks. Fellow starters Jrue Holiday (sprained ankle) and Brook Lopez (sore back) are also out. In addition, Donte DiVincenzo has yet to play this season, as he rehabs from a foot injury suffered during the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
