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 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 missed Thursday's game against Portland with a sprained left ankle, and it seems like the injury is relatively serious. That said, unless an official timetable is established, the guard will likely continue to be ruled out on a game-to-game basis.
Milton (ankle) will remain sidelined for Saturday's game against the Jazz, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.

Milton is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against Portland with a sore left ankle, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
Milton had been nursing a right knee injury earlier this month, but it's an issue with his other leg that looks likely to prevent him from playing Thursday. Tyrese Maxey would likely be the first in line for increased minutes if Milton is ultimately ruled out.
Milton (knee) will come off the bench for Thursday's game against Portland.
Milton came into the game listed as probable and the team did not provide an update on his status ahead of tipoff. The 24-year-old should get a decent chunk of playing time off the bench with Ben Simmons (calf) sidelined.
Milton is probable for Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers due to right knee hyperextension, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Milton has emerged from Wednesday's win over the Hornets with the injury, but he's still expected to play just one day later. Over the past five games, he's averaging 10.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.4 minutes.
Milton had 13 points (4-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, one rebound and one block in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 118-111 win over the Hornets.
The 24-year-old tweaked his knee during the first half and headed to the locker room, but he checked out fine and was able to retake the court. Milton is averaging 9.2 points, 2.2 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 20.5 minutes while shooting 36.4 percent from the field over the past six games.
Milton finished with 13 points (4-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two boards and two assists in 20 minutes of a 118-94 win against the Timberwolves on Friday.
Milton had a strong showing off the bench in the contest, finishing third on his team in points. The SMU product has recovered from a brief dip in points to average 10.66 points per game in his last three contests. He'll face the Pacers on Sunday.
Milton played 18 minutes off the bench in Friday's 122-110 win over the Celtics, scoring six points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and one steal.
Since clearing the NBA's health and safety protocols earlier this month, Milton had been riding high over his first three games back in action, with the third-year guard averaging 25.0 points, 4.0 assists, 2.3 treys, 2.0 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 29.7 minutes. While regression was inevitable for Milton since he converted 58.1 percent of his field-goal attempts over that stretch, his downturn in production Friday had more to do with his steep drop in playing time. Seth Curry (conditioning, COVID-19) rejoined the starting five after a seven-game absence and played 27 minutes, resulting in Milton and Tyrese Maxey (six minutes) having their roles downsized the most. Milton should be a bit better than this moving forward, but he can probably be penciled in for around 20-to-25 minutes when the 76ers have their full complement of rotation players available. That may not be enough playing time for Milton to warrant a roster spot in 12-team leagues.
Milton went for 16 points (4-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes off the bench during the Sixers' 117-109 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday.
Milton has enjoyed the 2021 calendar year, scoring in double-figures in all seven contests. After missing three games because of COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Milton has averaged 25.0 points in three contests since returning. Despite coming off the bench, he's averaging the third-most shot attempts on the team along with 16.8 points per game in 26.8 minutes.
Milton (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) returned to action Thursday in the 76ers' 125-108 win over the Heat, recording 31 points (11-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 27 minutes off the bench.
One of four players cleared to rejoin the Sixers after a three-game absence due to the NBA's COVID-19 protocols, Milton turned in by far the most eye-popping stat line. Though he came off the bench while Tyrese Maxey started at shooting guard for Seth Curry (illness), Milton took on a 29.6 percent usage rate as the clear-cut go-to option on the second unit and was able to fill up the box score as a result. Expect Milton to benefit from an uptick in playing time while Curry is sidelined, though he'll likely struggle to take on this level of usage in more competitive games.
Milton (COVID-19 protocols) is available for Thursday's game against the Heat, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.
As expected, Milton will return from a three-game absence stemming from health and safety protocols. The Sixers are still missing Seth Curry (COVID-19), so Milton should still be in a position to see extra run against a Heat team missing key contributors.
Milton (COVID-19 protocols) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's game against the Heat.
Milton was expected to be out until Saturday, but the situation has changed and he'll likely be available Thursday. He's seeing 25.9 minutes per game this season and could pick up right where he left off, assuming he plays Thursday.
Philadelphia head coach Doc Rivers said Monday that Milton and the other three players on the roster currently in quarantine due to the NBA's health and safety protocols (Matisse Thybulle, Tobias Harris and Vincent Poirier) won't be available any earlier than Saturday's game at Memphis, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. "I don't know exactly," Rivers said, when asked when the four players would be cleared to play. "We're thinking after [Thursday's game versus Miami] is a possibility -- that would be the [second] Miami game....But I don't think we've had clearance on it yet, and so we're just going to have to wait and see."
The four players entered the protocol Saturday, after all were deemed to be close contacts of Seth Curry, who tested positive for COVID-19. Though none of Milton, Thybulle, Harris and Poirier are believed to have tested positive themselves since heading into quarantine, Rivers suggested that the quartet is unlikely to receive clearance to rejoin the team until the weekend. With that in mind, Milton -- who sat out losses Saturday to the Nuggets and Monday to the Hawks -- will miss both of the 76ers' upcoming home games Tuesday and Thursday versus the Heat.
