Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton is back.

Middleton announced Friday night during the Bucks’ game against the Denver Nuggets that he has been cleared to return, announcing that he plans to play Wednesday when the Bucks host the Miami Heat.

The 25-year-old led the Bucks in scoring last season with 18.2 points per game, but hasn’t played this season after rupturing his left hamstring during a preseason workout September 20.
