Injury to Khris Middleton could be deciding factor in Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks series

In the second half of game 2 of the first round series between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks, All-Star guard Khris Middleton went down with a sprained MCL, which will knock him out of the rest of the series at minimum.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Middleton will be re-evaluated in two weeks. His injury is a huge loss for the Bucks. He is a great defensive player who they rely to slow opposing offenses down, in addition to being a gifted scorer.

Milwaukee Bucks All-Star Khris Middleton has an MCL sprain in his left knee and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, sources tell ESPN. Bucks will have to play without Middleton for the rest of this first-round series against Chicago.

The Bulls have momentum with the series coming back to Chicago this weekend for games 3 and 4 at the United Center. Even without their starting point guard in Lonzo Ball, there is hope for the Bulls to pull off the first round upset against the defending NBA champions.

If their big three of Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic all have good games in the near future, the Bulls will be in good position to win their first playoff series since 2015.
