76ers' Shake Milton: Out to begin season
Philadelphia head coach Doc Rivers said Sunday that Milton (ankle) is "nowhere near playing yet," implying that the point guard won't be ready for Wednesday's season opener in New Orleans, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Rivers was unwilling to put a firm timeline on Milton's return, but based on the tone of the coach's comments, the 25-year-old can probably be ruled out for at least the entirety of the 76ers' three-game week to open the season. Meanwhile, Rivers said he's uncertain if Ben Simmons will be ready to go for Wednesday's contest while he works to regain conditioning following his holdout from training camp, so Tyrese Maxey could be in store for some extended run out of the backcourt to begin the campaign....

76ers' Shake Milton: Won't play Friday
Milton (ankle) won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Pistons, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
Milton will miss a second straight game due to a right ankle sprain, while Tyrese Maxey (hip) will return and should see plenty of action at point guard.

76ers' Shake Milton: Works with starters in practice
Milton (ankle) worked with the starters during a scrimmage over the weekend, USA Today reports.
With Ben Simmons seemingly out of the picture -- at least for the time being -- Milton and Tyrese Maxey have been battling in training camp for the starting point guard spot. While it initially looked like Maxey had the upper hand, Milton worked with the starters during a scrimmage Saturday. Maxey got the start to begin preseason play, but it appears coach Doc Rivers is now favoring Milton to open the season in the backcourt alongside Seth Curry. "Shake probably spaces the floor better with his shot," Rivers said. "Maxey gives us the speed though. Both are learning how to be playmakers and run the team. Shake definitely is ahead of Maxey defensively."... See More ... See Less

76ers' Shake Milton: Plays through knee injury
Milton produced 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), nine assists, four rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal across 26 minutes in Sunday's 128-117 win over the Magic.
Milton was effective in delivering the ball to several playmakers despite a nagging knee injury. His involvement in the offense will be interesting to watch as the playoffs begin. Tyrese Maxey made a big statement for more playing time in the season finale, and Doc Rivers may give him more run, especially if any postseason games get out of hand. More time for Maxey would result in a reduced role for Milton.... See More ... See Less
