Despite rumors to the contrary, Khris Middleton's absence on Wednesday night does not appear to be related to Saturday's benching.
Middleton sat and watched the Bucks drop a winnable game to the Knicks on the weekend after playing just 19 minutes. It led to some rumors that he and coach Budenholzer are really butting heads but the two apparently cleared the air and Middleton's absence last night was truly unexpected and not some ploy by either coach or player. Middleton should return to early-round production as soon as he gets back on the court.
