Middleton's surgery successful, Bucks announced
Khris Middleton underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair his ruptured left hamstring, the Milwaukee Bucks announced.
Middleton tore the hamstring during a Sept. 20 workout after slipping on a wet spot on the practice floor. The Bucks expect him to be out about six months. He will rehab in Milwaukee under the direction of the team's medical and performance staff.
The 25-year-old Middleton averaged a career-high 18.2 points, 4.2 assists and 1.7 steals along with 3.8 rebounds in 79 games last season. The Bucks received the 6-foot-8 guard in a July 2013 trade, along with Brandon Knight and Viacheslav Kravtsov in exchange for Brandon Jennings. Middleton signed a multi-year contract with the Bucks last July.
