Shake Milton out at least 2 weeks after undergoing hand surgery
Philadelphia 76ers rookie Shake Milton underwent successful surgery on Tuesday morning to repair a fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right hand.
The injury occurred on February 5 and the surgery is expected to keep Milton out of action for at least two to three weeks.
The Sixers announced the news earlier on Tuesday.
Milton, a 22-year-old guard, has appeared in 13 contests for the Sixers this season and is averaging 4.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and one assist per contest.
Drafted with the 54th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft by the Dallas Mavericks, Milton was traded to the Sixers on draft night. He was eventually signed to a two-way contract by Philadelphia and has spent the majority of his time this season suiting up for the Sixers’ G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats.
