The Milwaukee Bucks just can't catch a break. Head coach Mike Budenholzer confirmed that Khris Middleton has tested positive for COVID-19.

Budenholzer was asked on Sunday's game if it was a COVID-19 related issue and he said he didn't believe so.

When asked today by Eric Nehm, Milwaukee Bucks beat reporter at The Athletic, if what Budenholzer told him was accurate, Budenholzer said,

“Yeah. We thought he just had a head cold or some type of non-COVID illness. And then didn't feel good again the next day. And got tested and has come back positive.”

This is another big blow for the Bucks as now every one of the teams' starters outside of Giannis Antetokounmpo are unavailable to play. Jrue Holiday is out with an ankle injury, Middleton has COVID-19, Brook Lopez has a back injury, and Donte Divincenzo is rehabbing from his ankle injury last postseason. They have also played a majority of games without Bobby Portis, Rodney Hood, and others.

Milwaukee has struggled to start the year and that is only because of their health. When they had four out of the five usual starters they beat the Brooklyn Nets by 20 points on opening night.

The Bucks are 3-4 to start the season and will take on the Detroit Pistons. This is a game the Bucks would usually win but they might have some struggles due to injuries. They will look to get healthy as a team soon. They need to start mixing together as they are on a quest to win back-to-back titles.
