Milton (ankle) will not play in the Sixers' final summer league game against the Raptors on Friday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports. Milton suffered a sprained left ankle earlier in the week during a game against the Thunder, and he'll continue to be held out Friday. The next time we'll see him is potentially in the preseason.
Milton did not practice Tuesday and will not play in Wednesday's summer league game due to an ankle injury, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Milton appears to have suffered the injury in Friday's loss to the Thunder, as he played just 12 minutes in that game. With Milton out, P.J. Dozier will likely take over as the team's starting point guard.
Milton totaled 15 points (2-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 11-13 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and a steal across 26 minutes in the 76ers' 107-106 win over the Bucks in the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday. Milton was cold from the field in this one, making just two of his 14 shot attempts. He did, however, get to the free-throw line with ease, sinking 11 shots from the charity stripe. He got his teammates involved with seven assists in the win.
Milton and the 76ers agreed on a four-year contract Tuesday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports. Milton saw a very limited role last year as a rookie, racking up just 268 total minutes. However, the 76ers' front office appears to have faith in the 22-year-old, and he will stick around to continue developing.
Milton contributed 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one rebound across 22 minutes in Monday's 119-98 loss to the Magic. After not playing in the NBA since Feb. 2, Milton saw over 22 minutes of run in his return to action due Ben Simmons' (illness) absence. Milton will probably not retain much of a role when Simmons comes back given he shows mostly promise as a pure scorer and lacks strength and size to contribute in other ways.
