The Milwaukee Bucks underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist this month and is expected to be fully recovered to return sometime near the start of the regular season.

Middleton suffered an MCL sprain in the first round of the playoffs, which caused him to miss the entirety of Milwaukee's second round series against the Boston Celtics.

Middleton averaged 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 32.4 minutes in what was another All-Star season.
