Top Shake Milton News

  • Shake Milton: Bought out by Detroit

    Detroit and Milton agreed to a contract buyout Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The two sides were able to complete the transaction prior to the deadline Friday, so Milton will be eligible to compete in the playoffs if he signs with a new team. He's expected to draw interest from several contenders, and it became apparent quickly that he was never a major part of Detroit's plans after being acquired from Minnesota at the trade deadline. In 42 appearances this season between the Pistons and Timberwolves, Milton has averaged 4.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 13.2 minutes per contest.

  • Pistons' Shake Milton: Grabs season-high nine boards

    Milton produced 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 22 minutes during Wednesday's 116-100 loss to the Suns.

    Milton continues to find his footing with Detroit after being moved at the trade deadline, leading all Pistons bench players in scoring while hauling in a team-high-tying rebound total and ending one rebound shy of a double-double. Milton set a season high in rebounds, surpassing his previous season high of six rebounds recorded in the first half of Detroit's back-to-back Tuesday. Milton has tallied at least 10 points in six games, his first game in double figures since posting 12 points Dec. 11 with Minnesota.

  • Pistons' Shake Milton: Set to debut Saturday

    Milton (recently traded) is available for Saturday's game versus the Clippers, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Milton is set to make his Detroit debut Saturday after being upgraded from questionable to available. However, it's unclear what role Milton will play with his new team.

  • Pistons' Shake Milton: Questionable for Saturday

    Milton (trade pending) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    The Pistons moved Monte Morris in exchange for Milton and Troy Brown, both of whom are questionable to make their debuts. Milton's path to playing time won't be much easier in Detroit, as Marcus Sasser has been playing really well for the Pistons.

  • Pistons' Shake Milton: Traded to Detroit

    The Pistons acquired Milton, Troy Brown and a future second-round pick from the Timberwolves on Wednesday in exchange for Monte Morris, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Milton will join a crowded backcourt in Detroit, where he'll fight for reserve minutes behind point guard Cade Cunningham with Killian Hayes and Marcus Sasser. Milton will presumably miss Wednesday's game in Sacramento, but he could be available Thursday in Portland if his trade to Detroit is finalized before then.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Enters rotation Monday

    Milton provided four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, three assists and one steal over 15 minutes during Monday's 128-125 loss to Charlotte.

    Milton played at least 15 minutes for the first time in over a month. With Mike Conley (hamstring) on the sideline, the Timberwolves opted to go with Milton for some guard depth. Despite having a somewhat fantasy-friendly game, Milton has been a non-factor across all leagues this season. Barring several injuries to key players, there is no reason to think his role changes any time soon.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Fails to score in three minutes

    Milton ended with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in three minutes during Friday's 122-95 win over the Rockets.

    Milton continues to be used sparingly by the Timberwolves, having played fewer than five minutes in six consecutive games. He was out of the rotation completely for three of those six games, highlighting what a struggle it has been thus far. Based on his current role, Milton is not even worth considering in deeper formats.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Strong from deep Friday

    Milton finished with 17 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist over 22 minutes in Friday's 127-103 win over Memphis.

    Milton connected on a trio of threes while ending as one of seven Timberwolves with a double-digit point total in his highest scoring effort of the campaign. Milton has surpassed the 10-point mark in four contests this season, connecting on at least two threes in three outings.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Sees 23 minutes Saturday

    Milton produced six points (2-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes during Saturday's 123-117 win over the Hornets.

    Minnesota used an eight-man rotation Saturday in the absence of Anthony Edwards (hip), allowing Milton to match his highest workload of the season. Milton's role has been pretty minimal this campaign, as Nickeil Alexander-Walker's strong play has made it hard for Milton's fantasy value to surface.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Reaches double figures off bench

    Milton chipped in 10 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and two steals across 19 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 win over the Pelicans.

    Milton led all Wolves bench players in scoring and steals while matching his season-high point total in the victory at home. Milton has tallied 10 or more points in two contests this season, notching two or more steals in three outings to boost Minnesota defensively.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Good to go

    Milton (foot) will play against Denver on Wednesday.

    Milton was initially tabbed as probable for the contest with left foot soreness, and he'll suit up. Through three games, Milton has averaged 5.3 points, 2.3 assists and 1.7 rebounds across 18.3 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Likely to suit up Wednesday

    Milton is probable for Wednesday's game versus the Nuggets due to left foot soreness.

    Milton was deemed questionable with a foot injury before playing Monday, so it appears that his injury isn't serious. The 27-year-old guard should continue to function as Minnesota's backup point guard.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Cleared to play

    Milton (foot) is available for Monday's matchup against the Hawks, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Milton was a late addition to the injury report but will still suit up Monday. The backup guard has garnered a modest role thus far, averaging 19.5 minutes across two games.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Added to injury report

    Milton is questionable for Monday's game against Atlanta due to left foot soreness.

    Milton wasn't on the Timberwolves' initial injury report, but his availability is in question the morning of the game. He's averaged 19.5 minutes per game over his first two appearances of the year, so if Milton is sidelined, Jordan McLaughlin and Nickeil Alexander-Walker would be candidates for increased run.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Moves back to bench

    Milton isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's season opener against the Raptors.

    Milton will be replaced by Mike Conley in the starting lineup Wednesday. Milton will likely compete with Jordan McLaughlin for the backup point guard role this season.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Starting preseason finale

    Milton is starting Thursday's preseason game against Chicago, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

    Milton has had some encouraging performances during the preseason, and he'll have a chance to contribute as a starter, with Mike Conley (illness) sidelined Thursday. However, Milton will likely retreat to the bench during Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Raptors.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Impactful off bench

    Milton delivered 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds and six assists in 20 minutes of action during Saturday's 121-112 preseason win over the Knicks. He also logged only one turnover.

    Milton may garner a larger combo-guard role in Minnesota than he earned in Philadelphia across the last five seasons. With career averages of 8.4 points and 3.2 assists in 20.8 minutes per game on 45.5/36.5/82.8 percent shooting splits, Milton's minute share will likely remain similar, but his usage could rise slightly, which bodes well given his above-average efficiency.

  • Timberwolves' Shake Milton: Efficient in Thursday's win

    Milton recorded 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, an assist and a steal across 20 minutes off the bench in Thursday's 111-99 preseason win over the Mavericks.

    Milton was one of Minnesota's most productive players Thursday, though preseason stats should always be taken with a grain of salt. The six-year veteran will likely have a steady role off the bench for the Timberwolves while also making some starts here and there. He averaged 8.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 0.7 triples across 20.6 minutes in 76 games during the 2022-23 campaign.
