Khris Middleton expected to miss entire series against Boston

Barely rid of the Bulls, the Bucks must now project themselves into the second round which awaits them against the Celtics. And it will still be without Khris Middleton. At the end of the fifth inning won against Chicago, Mike Budenholzer confirmed the absence of his rear/winger for the start of the series against Boston.

It is recalled that he suffered a sprain of the internal lateral ligament of the left knee during Game 2 of the first round. When the diagnosis fell, it was about two weeks before reassessing his state of health. In other words, the end of next week.

Knowing that this Bucks-Celtics series kicks off next Sunday, the fullback would only likely make his return for Game 3 on Saturday, May 7. “ They said two weeks. I am hopeful to be ready to return to the field around this date “, recently confided the person concerned. Adrian Wojnarowski is less optimistic, citing a potential absence for the entire series.

What confirms The Athletic which explains the sprain is of the “Grade 2” type, and that it could even force him to give up on a possible conference final.

We miss Khris”displays Mike Budenholzer. “I don’t think anyone underestimates its importance and effectiveness for us. Until we have it, we will have to give the best of ourselves at all levels of the team. After the pair DeMar DeRozan – Zach LaVine, the outsides of the Bucks will have to take up the challenge of the duo Jayson Tatum – Jaylen Brown.
