Milwaukee Bucks small forward Khris Middleton is the latest player to go down with an injury in the league’s young season. He is expected to miss several weeks.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, there is no ‘serious’ damage to his left leg.

He left Sunday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with the injury. At the time, it was being considered a “left thigh contusion.” The injury happened in the third quarter of the game.

Middleton was hit by Terrance Ferguson during a pick-and-roll play.

The Bucks later announced Middleton had suffered a thigh contusion and would not return. Middleton was at the top of the three-point line when he made contact with Marshall before Brook Lopez was able to get there for a pick.

Following the injury, the Bucks said he would not return. He had 10 points in 23 minutes of action before the injury.
