NBA Rumors: Milwaukee Bucks Star Expected To Return For The Regular Season Opener


The Milwaukee Bucks made the blockbuster deal to acquire Damian Lillard in recent weeks, and now, pairing him with Giannis Antetokounmpo, they once again become the favourite in the very talented Eastern Conference.

A key piece of the puzzle to this team however is Khris Middleton, who missed plenty of action in 2022-23, but with Lillard to take the attention away from him this season, he's expected to be back to his usual self as the Bucks chase their second title with Giannis leading the way. 

Despite off-season knee surgery, it appears the veteran wing is on track to return for the teams regular season opener as well, and if they can trot out a lineup full of stars on opening night, it's safe to say that few teams in the East will be able to keep up with them.
