Middleton might have remained out even if Bucks had advanced

MILWAUKEE (AP) Khris Middleton might not have been available for the Eastern Conference finals even if the Milwaukee Bucks had made it that far.

The three-time All-Star missed the Bucks' last 10 games after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee in Game 2 of a first-round series with the Chicago Bulls. Middleton sat out Milwaukee's entire second-round series with the Boston Celtics, who beat the Bucks in seven games and open the conference finals Tuesday in Miami.

"I don't know if I would have been ready for tomorrow," Middleton said Monday. "I don't know if I would have been ready if it went to Game 7. It was almost a day-by-day thing, just waking up and seeing how I felt, seeing if there's swelling in there, and there's a point where you have to make sure the ligament's completely healed."
