Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton tested positive for COVID-19, coach Mike Budenholzer confirmed to reporters Tuesday.

Middleton was held out of the Bucks’ previous game Sunday with an illness that, at the time, was termed non-COVID. It is unknown how much time Middleton will miss now.

“We thought he just had a head cold or some type of non-COVID illness,” Budenholzer said. “And then, he didn’t feel good again the next day. Got tested and has come back positive.”


In six games this season, Middleton has averaged 20.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game for the defending champs. Now in his 10th season in the NBA, he owns career averages of 16.8 points and 4.8 rebounds.

Milwaukee was 3-4 entering Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons.
