Milton scored 19 points (8-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt) with two rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in a 135-115 victory over the Rockets on Wednesday.
Milton scored in double figures for the fifth time in his last eight games and also matched his season high in blocks. The guard played almost the entire fourth quarter with Philadelphia holding a commanding lead, though he did most of his damage in the first half (12 points). Milton has averaged 12.9 points, 3.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds across his last eight games.
Milton played 26 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to Milwaukee, finishing with 20 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and three rebounds over 26 minutes.
Milton returned to the bench after starting in Philadelphia's previous contest. The third-year guard thrived in the reserve role, finishing second on the team in scoring while draining three of his five attempts from beyond the arc. Milton came into the contest averaging just 6.3 points on 25.0 percent shooting over his past three games, so he'll look to build upon Thursday's strong effort moving forward.
Milton will come off the bench for Thursday's game against Milwaukee, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
After making a spot start Wednesday against Phoenix, Milton will head back to the bench as Seth Curry takes over at point guard. Milton had a nightmare game Wednesday, finishing with just five points on 2-of-10 shooting with two assists and four turnovers in 24 minutes.

With Ben Simmons (illness) missing another game and Seth Curry (hip) sitting out, the Sixers will turn to Milton at point guard. In his two previous starts this season, Milton averaged 26.0 points and 4.5 assists while hitting 16-of-18 free-throw attempts.
Milton played 25 minutes off the bench and contributed 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four assists, one rebound, one block and one steal during Wednesday's victory over the Nets.
Milton scored seven of his 15 points within the first two minutes of the fourth quarter in an otherwise quiet evening for the third-year pro. The first three games of April saw Milton average 18.3 points on 54.1 percent shooting, but in the five contests since, he's averaged 10.4 points while shooting 46.7 percent. Since points are his only true fantasy contribution, those who roster Milton can't afford for him to be anything less than fantastic from the field.
Milton posted 14 points (5-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 20 minutes during Saturday's win over the Timberwolves.
The 24-year-old has now scored double-digit points in nine straight games, a span in which he's averaged 17.4 points, 3.0 assists and 1.5 three-pointers while shooting 51.2 percent from the field. Milton has played at least 20 minutes off the bench during the aforementioned nine-game stretch, and he should continue hovering anywhere between 20-30 minutes a game the rest of the way for the No. 1 seeded 76ers.
Milton finished with 27 points (10-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal through 27 minutes in the 76ers' 114-94 win over the Cavs on Thursday.
Milton has been a rock-solid role player off the bench this season, and he's now reached double figures in eight straight games. He's typically good for a handful of assists and rebounds, but Milton's three-point stroke has mostly abandoned him this season, as he's hitting just 30.8 percent of his attempts from deep.
Milton registered 16 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a steal across 21 minutes in Saturday's 122-112 loss to the Clippers.
As Milton continues to toil with the second unit, he's posting numbers that could make him a Sixth Man of the Year candidate. Currently, he's enjoying a nice six-game stretch of production with 17.5 points, 2,7 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game. This exemplary run included one start in place of Ben Simmons. Seth Curry's three-game absence also occurred over that span.
Milton scored 13 points (5-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT) with four assists and two rebounds in a 108-98 victory over the Warriors on Tuesday.
Milton's been hot on offense, having scored in double figures in each of his last four games. Not coincidentally, the guard has seen his shot attempts increase over that same period with Joel Embiid (knee) and Seth Curry (ankle) both out of the lineup. Over the last four games, Milton has been the team's second-leading scorer at 19.3 points per game while also adding 3.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds.
Milton provided 28 points (9-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 9-11 FT), two assists, a rebound and a steal across 36 minutes in Saturday's 129-105 win over the Kings.
With Ben Simmons sitting out Saturday's game and Seth Curry also sidelined, Milton had an excellent opportunity to post a big score. He delivered with an excellent shooting performance in the spot start. Saturday was only his second start of the season, and he's proven capable of significant production when it's his turn to step up. Unfortunately for Milton, he depends on second-unit appearances to do most of his damage, making his minutes difficult to predict.

Milton will get the nod as Ben Simmons (knee) is out. Milton has only started one other game this season, but in the six contests that he's seen 30-plus minutes, the guard has averaged 19.8 points, 3.7 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 steals.
Milton played 20 minutes off the bench and contributed 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and one steal during Wednesday's OT loss to the Bucks.
Milton ended a two-game streak in which he failed to score in double figures; he also recorded his first steal and nailed his first triple in his last three games. Philly saw seven players score in double digits, and Milton's 15 points were good for third on the team during Wednesday's loss despite him coming off the bench. Through seven March contests, Milton is averaging 12.4 points, 3.6 assists and 2.9 rebounds while playing 23.1 minutes per game.
Milton totaled 18 points (8-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals over 26 minutes off the bench Friday in the win over the Wizards.
Milton broke out of a mini slump, as he had only totaled 22 points on 9-for-26 shooting over his last two outings. Still, Friday was just the second time in his last 18 games that Milton had topped 15 points. His 26 minutes were good for third most on the team behind starters Danny Green (31 minutes) and Seth Curry (30 minutes).
Milton tallied 10 points (5-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and eight boards in Thursday's win over the Bulls.
The Sixers were able to take care of business without their two best players, but it wasn't an overly impressive night for Milton, who saw 24 minutes and once again struggled from the field. The reserve guard has scored in double figures for six straight games, but he's hovering around 41 percent shooting over that span. Over his last five games, Milton has gone a combined 3-of-16 from deep.
Milton scored 26 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with four rebounds and four assists in Monday's win over the Pacers.
Milton was able to take advantage of extended garbage time to play a team-high 30 minutes, while the Sixers' starters sat most of the fourth quarter. It was good to see Milton get back on track from three after going a combined 0-of-5 from beyond the arc over his last two games. Milton's 26 points were his most in any game since Jan. 16, when he put up 28 in a loss to Memphis.
Milton registered 11 points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal across 32 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 112-109 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.
Milton struggled a bit from the field, but he still ended as just one of three Philadelphia players that scored in double figures. He has proven to be a reliable scoring asset for the 76ers while coming off the bench, but his inconsistency on a game-to-game basis makes him tough to rely on in 12-team leagues.
Milton (ankle) finished Sunday's 110-103 loss to Toronto with nine points (3-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt), two assists and two rebounds in 29 minutes.
An ankle injury kept Milton out of the previous five games, but he made his return Sunday and played a significant role, despite coach Doc Rivers' suggestion pregame that the reserve guard would face some limitations. Milton hit multiple three-pointers for the first time since Jan. 20.
Milton (ankle) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Raptors, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports. Head coach Doc Rivers said Milton would face an unspecified minutes restriction, according to Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
After missing the last five games with a sprained left ankle, Milton will make his return to action. Prior to the injury, Milton averaged 10.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists over his last 10 games. During that same span, he converted just four of his 21 three-point attempts. Given the minutes restriction, Milton is probably best avoided in DFS contests.
Milton (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Raptors.
Milton has been out over the past five games due to a sprained left ankle, but he should be back on the court Sunday. He's on pace for a career year, as he's averaging 14.0 points, 3.0 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 24.4 minutes.
Milton (ankle) is out Friday against the Bulls, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.
