Bucks’ Khris Middleton (right knee) upgraded to available against 76ers
Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton (right knee injury management) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday’s home game versus the Philadelphia 76ers. The three-time All-Star has missed a total of 42 games so far this season.
Wesley Matthews (right calf strain) is the only other player listed on Milwaukee’s injury report. The 14-year veteran was absent for 23 contests throughout the season. Giannis Antetokounmpo was removed from the injury list this past Tuesday.
