Adrian Griffin Discusses Khris Middleton’s Minutes Restriction Entering The Season


Although Khris Middleton appeared to be recovering from knee surgery that he had done in the off-season, the Milwaukee Bucks are being cautious and will limit his playing time.

Middleton, who participated in just one preseason game, is prepared for Thursday night’s regular-season opener between the Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Adrian Griffin, the coach, is limiting the three-time All-Star’s playing time with caution.

“We have to be smart. Going from 12 to 35 (minutes) is probably not a smart thing to do right now,” Griffin said, per Eric Nehm of The Athletic.

Middleton participated in 12 minutes of action during Miwalukee’s final preseason game, a 124-116 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, and finished with five points, five assists, and one rebound.

Last season, Middleton’s knee problems kept him from playing more than 33 games. During the injury-plagued 2022–23 NBA season, the 6-foot-7 shooter averaged 15.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.9 assists.

In the postseason, the 11-year veteran averaged a team-best 23.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 0.6 steals, which really helped the Bucks.

The season before, soon after the Bucks’ unexpected first-round playoff loss, Middleton had a minor arthroscopic procedure.

“Been making great strides, a step in the right direction each day, So definitely, don’t think, you know, if something happens, if I don’t play tomorrow, I’ll still be on track to play the next game. Hopefully, just keep continuing that way,” Middleton said a day before he played his first preseason game.
