MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Bucks player Kris Middleton is said to be out for the next three to four weeks with a thigh injury.
Middleton was injured during Sunday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Middleton finished that game with 10 points for the Bucks. Middleton underwent an MRI and doctors confirmed the injury as a left thigh contusion.
He is Milwaukee's second leading scorer behind 2019 MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. In 10 games for the Bucks this season, Middleton is averaging 18.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 30.8 minutes per game, while shooting a career best in field goal percentage (.486).
According to ESPN, players like Wesley Matthews, George Hill, and Kyle Korver will have to contribute more offensively in order to makeup for the loss of Middleton.
