The reigning champs might have to face the Boston Celtics without their second-best player for the entirety of their second-round matchup against the Celtics with new reporting from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski suggesting that Milwaukee Bucks sharpshooter Khris Middleton may not be back from a sprained MCL until after the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

This could of course mean Middleton’s knee injury may well end his season if the Bucks cannot find a way to replace him and Wojnarowski’s reporting pans out for the worst regarding the Milwaukee forward’s return timetable. Per Woj, Middleton “will get that re-evaluation at the … two-week point next week, but I’m told that injury is expected to keep him out longer than that.”

The ESPN NBA insider noted that the Bucks “may have to get through another series, a conference semifinals before they have the opportunity to get Khris Middleton back,” and with the way Boston has been playing, that potential outcome just got significantly less likely.
