Milton ended with 20 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes during Thursday's 125-108 victory over the Kings.
Milton scored in double digits for the sixth time in his last seven games, a span that has seen him put up top-20 numbers in standard formats. With Ben Simmons (back) sidelined indefinitely, Milton figures to be a key piece for the 76ers as they make a push for a top-four spot in the East. His value is heavily reliant on scoring and doing so at an efficient rate. Should that waiver, his overall production could take hit. However, the playing time appears almost guaranteed, and he should be on a roster in almost every league.
Milton had 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-6 3PT, 2-4 FT) and six assists in Tuesday night's loss to the Lakers.
Milton burst onto the scene with a huge game against the Clippers over the weekend, but he was stifled by the Lakers' defense on Tuesday, taking only nine shots in 29 minutes. He did record three steals, however, and he knocked down a pair of threes, extending his streak to four games with multiple three-pointers made. Milton should continue to see elevated minutes so long as Ben Simmons (back) -- and to a lesser degree, Josh Richardson (concussion) -- remains out.
Milton poured in 39 points (14-20 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 40 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 loss to the Clippers.
Milton finished with career highs in scoring and threes, plus he set a new record for most made treys in a row (14 straight across the last three tilts). He has stepped up in a major way since Ben Simmons (back) was sidelined, and the well-rounded Milton looks like a good bet to continue earning the vast majority of minutes at the point guard position while Simmons is on the shelf.
Milton put up 19 points (6-7 FG, 5-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during Thursday's 115-106 win over the Knicks.
In the first game of this back-to-back set, Milton dropped a team-high 20 points on 57.1 percent shooting in a loss to the Cavaliers. He added four rebounds, four assists and even a block to that performance, and was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise gloomy 76ers outing. While this outing wasn't nearly as rough for the team, Milton still kept that momentum going in this one, scoring a strong number of points once more, and swishing all five of his long-range attempts. Unbelievably, the 23-year old has performed at a top 25 level over his last four games, and has worked his way onto the fantasy radar.
Milton accumulated 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one block in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 108-94 loss to the Cavaliers.
Milton was the only starter who didn't struggle, as Joel Embiid (shoulder) left in the first quarter and most of the team couldn't buy a bucket. Milton seems likely to log no shortage of minutes again during Thursday's matchup versus the Knicks, and the 76ers may lean on him fairly heavily while Ben Simmons (back) is out for at least the next couple weeks.
Milton amassed seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 26 minutes in Monday's 129-112 win over the Hawks.
Milton drew the spot start for Ben Simmons (back) and received his highest playing time in six games. The guard wasn't asked to score much, but he did tie his season high in assists. Simmons is expected to miss an extended period of time, and if Milton remains a starter, the 23-year-old will be a viable add in most season-long leagues.
Milton will start Monday's game against the Hawks, Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice reports.
Earlier Monday, indications were that Raul Neto would get the first crack at replacing Ben Simmons, but the Sixers will instead go with Milton. He's coming off of a 17-point, two-assist game in Saturday's loss to Milwaukee. Al Horford will also move back into the starting five.
Milton registered 17 points (5-9 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two assists in 22 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 119-98 loss at Milwaukee.
Milton started eight straight games between Jan. 25 and Feb. 9, but he has averaged just 12.3 minutes per game in his last three games coming off the bench. This 17-point performance could be encouraging moving forward, however, and he might find more minutes available in the event Ben Simmons is forced to miss an extended period of time due to his back problem.
Milton saw one minute of action in Tuesday's 110-103 win over the Clippers, registering no statistics during his time on the court.
Milton went from starting the previous eight games to essentially falling out of the rotation entirely while he surrendered his spot on the top unit to Josh Richardson. With Richardson turning in by far the best outing of his first three games back from a hamstring injury (21 points, five rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 32 minutes) and new pickups Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks now both integrated into the mix, Milton will likely find playing time difficult to come by moving forward.
Milton will come off the bench for Tuesday's tilt versus the Clippers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Milton has started the previous eight games at starting forward, but Josh Richardson is now healthy enough to move back into the first unit. As a result, Milton is expected to continue seeing his minutes take a hit.
Milton chipped in with 27 points (7-12 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 8-10 FT), six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's 127-117 loss at Atlanta.
Milton was a fringe member of the rotation until recently, and he has logged at least 23 minutes in each of Philadelphia's last four games while taking advantage of Jason Richardson's hamstring injury. He is averaging 13.5 points per game while shooting 54.5 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from deep in his last four games. While those numbers could be unsustainable over a prolonged period of time, he should remain in the starting lineup until Richardson is ready to return.
Milton managed 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 115-104 win over the Warriors.
Milton finished with season highs in scoring and minutes while drawing another start in place of Josh Richardson (hamstring). Milton has earned at least 23 minutes in three straight matchups, and he seems likely to hold onto the starting shooting guard gig until Richardson is able to return to action.
Milton will draw another start Tuesday against Golden State, Justin Grasso of Sports Illustrated reports.
Shake Milton remains part of the starting five even with Joel Embiid making his return to the lineup, pushing Matisse Thybulle to the bench. Milton finished with seven points, nine boards, three assists and a steal across 25 minutes in his last start Saturday against the Lakers.
Milton started at shooting guard and finished with seven points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes Saturday in the 76ers' 108-91 win over the Lakers.
Milton was a surprise choice to replace Josh Richardson (hamstring) in the starting five, but he acquitted himself well while filling a low-usage role alongside Ben Simmons in the starting five. The second-year player will have a good chance at sticking in the rotation while Richardson remains sidelined for around 2-to-3 weeks, though Milton will likely be the top candidate to move back to the bench when Joel Embiid (finger) returns to action. Embiid will be re-evaluated Monday and is holding out hope that he'll be cleared to play at some point later this week.
Milton will start Saturday's contest against the Lakers, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
With Josh Richardson (hamstring) sidelined, Milton will make his first start of the season. In the seven games that he's seen double-digit minutes, he's averaging 7.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
Milton scored nine points (3-10 FG, 3-6 3PT, 0-0 FT) and added four rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 107-95 loss to Toronto.
Seeing his first action in six games, Milton didn't hesitate to fire up shots. On the bright side, he shot 50 percent from beyond the arc, but on the downside, he missed all four of his attempts from closer in. The 23-year-old is averaging 4.3 points in 13 games this season.
The 76ers recalled Milton from the G League's Delaware Blue Coats on Sunday, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Milton will rejoin the 76ers ahead of Monday's game against the Pistons after turning in 32- and 27-point performances for the G League affiliate over his last two appearances. The second-year guard hasn't been a fixture in the NBA rotation this season and may only see the court Monday if the contest turns non-competitive.
Milton supplied 32 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go with three assists and three rebounds across 28 minutes Tuesday in the G League Delaware Blue Coats' 139-124 win over the Greensboro Swarm.
With minutes hard to come by for Milton at the NBA level, the 76ers sent him to the G League to pick up some playing time. Despite coming off the bench for Delaware, Milton still turned in a game-high scoring total. He'll likely return to Philadelphia in the near future, but his big performance in the G League isn't likely to impact his standing in coach Brett Brown's rotation.
Milton was assigned to the G League on Sunday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Milton hasn't appeared in a game for the 76ers since Dec. 7 and will make his way back to the Blue Coats. The 23-year-old is averaging 3.9 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 9.1 minutes during his nine NBA appearances this season.
Milton (hip) is available for Thursday's game against the Wizards.
Milton missed practice earlier in the week due to right hip discomfort but was always expected to suit up Thursday. He's appeared in eight games for the 76ers this season and is averaging 3.8 points across 8.9 minutes.
