    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons will miss Tuesday's game with back tightness.

    Simmons is having a strong preseason but will have to sit for at least one contest. Shake Milton may get more playing time in that one. Simmons feels like a triple-double waiting to happen in this upcoming season.

    Shake Milton will start at shooting guard for the 76ers preseason matchup vs. the Hornets on Friday.

    Embiid is getting the night off and the 76ers are sliding Tobias Harris down to the four to make room for Milton. He's played well this preseason and might have a chance to crack the rotation once the regular season starts. However, he'll need an injury to one of the 76ers starers to become fantasy relevant.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers have brought back Furkan Korkmaz on a two-year minimum contract.

    There were rumors that Korkmaz would head overseas after failing to make a positive impact in the postseason for the Sixers. However, at just 21 years old, he will continue to grow with the Sixers. There will be minutes off of the bench to be had if Korkmaz can beat out the likes of Zhaire Smith, Shake Milton and James Ennis.

    Shake Milton (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's Summer League game.

    Milton sustained the injury on Monday, shortly after signing a four-year contract with the Sixers. It's been a tough break but he has far more security than most players in Vegas, so we wouldn't expect this absence to affect his long-term outlook in any way.

    Shake Milton (ankle) will miss Wednesday's Summer League game against the Pistons after not practicing on Tuesday.

    Milton agreed to a four-year contract with the Sixers earlier this month, and the team is unlikely to push him for Summer League action. He may find a few reserve minutes this season but he is far off the fantasy radar.

    Shake Milton appeared to suffer an ankle injury in Monday's Summer League game.

    No word on the severity of the injury, and there's really no need for the Sixers to push Milton at all. We wouldn't be surprised if he sat a game or two as a precaution. Milton had five points in 12 minutes before departing the game.

    Shake Milton put up 15 points in Friday's Summer League win but went a horrific 2-of-14 from the field to get there.

    Milton, who recently agreed to a four-year deal with the Sixers, added seven rebounds and a steal. He saved his day by going 11-of-13 from the free throw line, and while the poor shooting is not what dynasty owners would like to see it was good to see him staying aggressive in getting to the line. Milton's length and defensive abilities give him an outside chance at landing in the rotation, with his new contract a show of faith from the organization.

    Per Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Shake Milton is signing a four-year contract with the Sixers.

    Milton has some nice potential but will fill a depth role for the Sixers next season. He can defend multiple positions, which will help him get on the court. Milton is another name the Sixers can throw at opponents, in what looks like one of the best defensive teams in the league.

    Shake Milton played 28 minutes in Wednesday's season finale victory over the Bulls scoring nine points with one rebound, two assists, two steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Milton was looking like a late-first round pick in the NBA draft back in June before injuring his back in the pre-draft workouts. He found his way onto the Sixers in the late-second round and actually contributed a decent amount given his draft position. As a 6'6" point guard that can guard three positions, he's got real potential to stick around as a role player for this squad. As a rookie though, he'll finish outside the top-375 in 8 and 9-cat formats.

    Shake Milton scored 13 points on eight shots in 21 minutes on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Milton got his first game action since Groundhog Day and finger surgery on February 11th with Ben Simmons out. He had a good showing, shooting 6-for-8 from the floor with a 3-pointer. He won't likely get more than a few minutes here and there down the stretch unless there are some significant rest days for the Sixers stars.

    Shake Milton underwent surgery for a fractured finger in his right hand on Monday morning and he will be re-evaluated in 2-to-3 weeks.

    Milton has been plagued by injuries in his rookie season. He suffered a back injury during the pre-draft process that caused him to slip all the way to No. 54 after being a projected a late first-rounder. He missed all of Summer League with the injury and has spent most of the season in the G League. He is only a stash in deep dynasty leagues.

    Shake Milton broke a finger on Tuesday and will be out for an indefinite period.

    Brett Brown said it'd be "a while." Milton has averaged 9.7 minutes in 13 appearances with the Sixers this season and is only worth monitoring for dynasty purposes.

    Shake Milton scored a career-high 11 points on Saturday night, hitting three triples and adding a steal in 20 minutes of action.

    Milton saw an extended look with Jimmy Butler out and actually played ahead of occasional starter Furkan Korkmaz, but outside of dynasty leagues Milton can be ignored this season.

    Sixers rookie Shake Milton was cleared for limited contact on Friday.

    This is starting to sound like a broken record, but “The Process” has brought in a multitude of potential pieces that could play a factor for the Sixers in different timelines. In this current one, most of their rookie crop is just not going to see enough time to be impactful, and Milton is just another one of those assets.
