The Philadelphia 76ers are still dealing with Ben Simmons' situation but that's not the only issue for the team in the backcourt. Head coach Doc Rivers, in fact, confirmed that Shake Milton won't be available for the start of the season. 

The player is still recovering from a sprained ankle and coach Rivers said that he's nowhere ready to play and that he'll be out for 'a while'. 

Milton, drafted by the 76ers in the 2018 NBA Draft with the 54th pick overall, was a very useful player for the Sixers last season coming off the bench. He averaged 13 points, 3.1 assists, and 2.3 rebounds per game in the past season. 

With Ben Simmons' status still uncertain, the 76ers will rely a lot on second-year player Tyrese Maxey and Turkish guard Furkan Korkmaz in the backcourt to play some point guard minutes.
