Khris Middleton back Wednesday for Bucks

Milwaukee Bucks All-Star swingman Khris Middleton will return to the court Wednesday against the Atlanta Hawks in Milwaukee.

Middleton has been out since Nov. 10 because of a left thigh contusion. At the time of the injury, the team said he would miss three to four weeks.

"I've been feeling great this last week or two," Middleton told reporters Tuesday.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said Middleton will play limited minutes upon his return.

"Lot of credit to Khris," Budenholzer told reporters. "Our medical group does an amazing job. Just very happy, excited to have him. He's obviously a huge part of what we do."

Middleton, 28, is averaging 18.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game for the East-leading Bucks (14-3).
