Nearly two weeks ago, Milton left the first game of the four-game road trip out West with an injured ankle. During the fourth quarter of the game against the Sacramento Kings, Milton rolled his ankle and ended up spraining it. The Sixers didn’t hesitate to rule Milton out of last Saturday’s matchup against the Phoenix Suns.
At that point, Sixers head coach Doc Rivers made it clear that Milton was going to miss the rest of the road trip, which included another game on Monday against the Utah Jazz. While the Sixers were hopeful of getting Milton back by Wednesday when they take on the Houston Rockets – the team doubted his status, and he ended up not playing.
