The Milwaukee Bucks could be without one of their best players on Wednesday night when they battle the Indiana Pacers at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. This is after three-time All-Star Khris Middleton was listed as questionable to play due to right knee injury management as well as a left wrist sprain.
With tip-off just hours away, the fans want to know: Is Khris Middleton playing tonight vs. the Pacers?
Milwaukee Bucks Star Khris Middleton’s Injury Status Vs. Pacers
The inclusion of Middleton on Tuesday’s initial injury report was not a total surprise. After all, Wednesday’s contest against the Pacers is going to be the first night of a back-to-back set for the Bucks, who are also set to face the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.
What has been an unexpected development, however, is Middleton’s wrist injury. This is the first we’ve heard of his left wrist sprain, which he may have suffered during Monday’s loss to the Pacers.
For what it’s worth, the Bucks have played four back-to-back sets this season, with the last one coming on December 16 and 17. Middleton has yet to play two nights in a row this term, and it’s very much possible that this does not change tonight.
UPDATE: Bucks coach Adrian Griffin announced roughly an hour prior to tip-off that Middleton will play tonight:

The Bucks should make their decision on Middleton’s final status soon, and we will be passing along any new information as they come.
However, with regard to the question of Is Khris Middleton playing tonight vs. the Pacers? The answer is yes.
