The Bucks are off to an awesome start at 10-1. But they still feel like a team that might even have more waiting in the wings. After an exciting double overtime win, when can the Bucks expect Khris Middleton back?
The Herd Connection
Yesterday the Wisconsin Herd lost to the Cleveland Charge in Oshkosh 112-103, but Middleton did not play in that game. Middleton has been working to rehab his repaired wrist right up Hwy 41 in practice scenarios with the Herd. It is interesting to think that could even be an option for him.
However, don’t count on seeing him suit up in a Herd game. Call ahead. According to other local media, that seems highly unlikely as Middleton seems to be back in Milwaukee. Unlike the MLB where you may be able to occasionally catch a Brewer’s player playing up in Appleton, the NBA just doesn’t seem to do that.
A more practical timeframe would have Middleton back in about ten more days at/around the Friday night game on Nov. 18th against the 76er’s. And what is the rush? Time seems to be in the Bucks favor. For the Bucks to not rush Giannis or Jrue or Khris out into these games makes a ton of sense. Coasting into the holiday break will hopefully allow them to ramp up into April and make a deep run in the playoffs.
While Nov. 18th feels arbitrary, it makes sense from a scheduling perspective. Ultimately, only the player and training staff know.
If you are able, checking out a Wisconsin Herd game is an awesome, affordable experience.
Located at the Oshkosh arena, the Herd have a good roster full of players you’ll see on the Bucks sideline. As part of the G-League, the Herd game day experience is top notch.
