The Milwaukee Bucks say guard Khris Middleton suffered a left hamstring injury in preseason workouts that will require surgery. General Manager John Hammond said Middleton is expected to be sidelined for approximately six months, with surgery planned for next week.
“We’re obviously disappointed for Khris and our team, but injuries are an unfortunate part of the game,” said Hammond. “We’ll rely on our overall roster depth to help us while Khris is out for a significant period of the season.”
The 25-year-old Middleton averaged career-high 18.2 points, 4.2 assists and 1.7 steals last season along with 3.8 rebounds in 79 games.
The Bucks will open training camp next week.
