Middleton reportedly will miss 3-4 weeks with a left thigh contusion, which was suffered during the Bucks' 121-119 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday (Monday, PHL time).
Although Middleton will miss significant time, Charania reports there's no "serious damage" in the leg of the 28-year-old forward.
Middleton is averaging 18.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists over 10 games this season. The Bucks (7-3) will likely turn to young guards Sterling Brown and Donte DiVincenzo -- as well as veterans Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, Wesley Matthews and Kyle Korver -- to fill Middleton's minutes.
