The Bucks have the best record in the NBA and they have been doing all this with a star missing, Khris Middleton has not played in any of the Bucks’s games so far. Let’s have a look at why this has been the case.
Khris Middleton has been out after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist
Middleton actually went on to explain that the injury occurred sometime after the 2022 All-Star break, he then went on to play the rest of the season with a torn ligament. Even without him, The Bucks have been off to the best start in franchise history.

The Bucks are as scary as ever and they’ll only get better once Khris Middleton is back, he will come back and add a lot of defense to the team along with some excellent three-point shooting. Middleton has been making good progress with his injury rehab, the Bucks expect him to start participating in games sometime around mid to the end of November.
The Milwaukee Bucks might just end up winning it all this season
Even though it is very early in the season, the Bucks have looked extremely strong, and as the season progresses and their chemistry improves they will only get better. Soon they will get Khris Middleton back in the lineup, and when you add him to the lineup with a scalding hot Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday the Bucks will be unstoppable.
If they can continue with this level of play the Bucks will surely be favorites to win it all this season. This will also do wonders for Antetokounmpo’s legacy and solidify him as an all-time great and one of the best players of his generation.
