Milwaukee Bucks Injury Report (Dec. 16): The latest on Khris Middleton and Damian Lillard's availability
There will be no Khris Middleton for the Milwaukee Bucks game against the Detroit Pistons on Saturday, but Damian Lillard will be there.
Milwaukee is still being extra careful with Middleton's knee and won't put him in the first game of a back-to-back set.
The three-time All-Star is likely to play against the Houston Rockets on Sunday.
"Khash Money" was very important in the Bucks' tough 140-126 win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo was the clear star of the game.
He scored 64 points, which was the highest score of his career and set a new club record for most points scored in a single game.
Middleton, on the other hand, was quietly great. Ten boards, seven assists, and one steal gave him 14 points.
When the Milwaukee Bucks play the Detroit Pistons, who haven't won a game since October 28, Khris Middleton will not play.
On the other hand, Damian Lillard is excited to play on Saturday. If "Dame Time" isn't hurt, he should be able to play in that game against the Pistons.
