TueThis is in no way inferior to the impressive result of Demar DeRozan with 41 points. Bulls of Chicago, Milwaukee Bucks suffered in other areas as well. Basically the loss of two key players such as Bobby Portis and Chris Middleton are one of the main problems for coaches Mike Budenholzer. Before the first half, Portis suffered a right eye injury that forced him out of the game.
This has already been a major obstacle to bucks team that failed Yannis from a tight defensive team from the Bulls. It was already difficult for milwaukee, who initially thought they could beat the Bulls on the show. But in this game, everything changed for Chicago. DeRozan led them to a very important victory on Wednesday.
Even if sometimes it’s hard to accept, health helps to win titles, and the absence of players due to injuries in the same game can be a serious blow. apparently, Portis he had vision problems in his right eye and the doctors just couldn’t fix it. However, they expect him to return for the next game without issue, given that his injury wasn’t all that bad.
But to lose Bobby for the whole second half was not as painful as what happened to Chris Middleton during clutch. It was an unfortunate sight, but injuries like this happen, especially during playoff games when all players are playing at their best.
Middleton is suffering from a sprained MCL.
This happened with over 8 minutes left in the fourth quarter, so the Bucks would have had a chance to win if it didn’t. In turn, while he was trying to score a basket, Middleton slipped and twisted his knee painfully. After the game Mike Budenholzer confirmed that Middleton suffered an MCL sprain.
They can be very serious, even the least dangerous. Level I will take the player out of the game for 1-2 weeks. A grade II sprain lasts 3 to 6 weeks, while grade III puts Middleton out of action for the remainder of the term. Playoffs and season. Tomorrow the player will have an MRI, but the initial report is not very encouraging.
