After long days of hiatus, Milwaukee Bucks star Khris Middleton will finally play. 

As per Eric Nehm of The Athletic, Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer expects that the star swingman will suit up in a marquee matchup against the Lakers on Wednesday evening. Budenholzer also confirmed that Middleton will be on a minute restriction for the first few games of its return. 

On November 2, Middleton was placed into the league’s health and safety protocols after testing positive in COVID-19 disease. 

In Middleton’s absence since October 31, the Bucks have won three of their last eight games in the league. The reigning champs are currently sitting in a peculiar position, 11th place in the Eastern Conference (6-8).

Middleton is currently averaging 20.0 points, 4.7 boards and 4.5 assists in this season.
