If the Milwaukee Bucks want to keep their NBA Finals hopes alive and get past the Boston Celtics, they'll need to do so without a key contributor. That would be veteran Khris Middleton.

Per a report, Middleton suffered an MCL sprain and it's going to sideline him for the entire series against the Celtics. This is a big blow for the team.

The Bucks have dreams of repeating as champs, but the journey has just gotten a bit tougher for them. For Boston, they've got the confidence to record a big series win here, especially after they just swept the Brooklyn Nets.
