  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Pops for 21 against Celtics

    Melton amassed 21 points (7-19 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 37 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 125-119 loss to Boston.

    With Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey both sidelined due to an illness, Melton stepped up on the offensive end with his third game of the season of 20-plus points, and his fourth straight game with at least three made three-pointers. Over the last 10 contests, the 25-year-old guard has found another gear, averaging 17.1 points, 4.6 boards, 3.2 threes, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 44.4 percent from beyond the arc.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Drains four triples in loss

    Melton finished Wednesday's 124-114 loss to the Pelicans with 17 points (5-14 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, six assists, one block and three steals in 30 minutes.

    Melton finished as Philadelphia's second-leading scorer in the contest despite a rough 5-for-14 shooting line. He was actually pretty efficient in going 4-for-10 from deep but struggled from inside the arc, going just 1-for-4. Melton's point tally was his highest over his past five contests and was much needed with Joel Embiid sitting out due to an illness. Melton is averaging a career-high 12.4 points per game this season, and he's finished with double-digit scoring in 10 of his past 11 games.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Displays two-way play in win

    Melton ended with 21 points (8-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist and three steals in 27 minutes during Sunday's 121-99 victory over Brooklyn.

    Melton provided a spark for Philadelphia on both ends of the court, leading all players in steals while finishing as one of three 76ers with 20 or more points in a blowout victory. Melton has tallied three or more steals in two games this season and scored 20 or more points on two occasions.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Surprises with 30-point effort

    Melton provided 30 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 10-10 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal over 35 minutes during Tuesday's 132-126 loss to Indiana.

    Melton should be considered the Sixers' fourth-best offensive option behind Joel Embiid, Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris. Still, he delivered his best game of the season Tuesday while also putting up a season-high mark in scoring by a wide margin -- his previous season-best output was 14 points. Given his role on offense, this is likely to have been an outlier rather than a sign of things to come, so Melton should probably hover around the 15-point mark in future contests.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Decent production in victory

    Melton racked up 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and six assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's 137-126 win over the Pacers.

    Melton had a fairly well-rounded stat line during Sunday's win, but his production was overshadowed by teammates Tyrese Maxey and Joel Embiid, who propelled the 76ers to victory. Melton was held without a steal for the first time this season Sunday, but he's now scored in double figures in three of his last four outings and has averaged 9.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 28.8 minutes per game during that time.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Inefficient in win

    Melton recorded eight points (3-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 25 minutes during Saturday's 112-100 victory over the Suns.

    All other Philadelphia starters posted at least 18 points while shooting 50 percent from the field, making Melton the odd man out from a production standpoint. His 10 shots matched a season-high mark, but he hasn't exceeded 12 points in any of the 76ers' five contests thus far. He's shooting just 22.7 percent from deep.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Comes close to double-double

    Melton ended Sunday's 126-98 win over Portland with 12 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, eight assists and two steals over 31 minutes.

    Melton plays a secondary role in an offensive scheme that also features Joel Embiid, Tyrese Maxey (hand) and Tobias Harris. However, Melton delivered a good showing Sunday, ending two assists away from a double-double. Melton is likely headed to the bench once James Harden (personal) returns to game action, but Melton will continue to have fantasy upside as long as he remains in a starting role.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Scores 10 as starter

    Melton closed Thursday's 118-117 loss to Milwaukee with 10 points (3-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists and two steals across 25 minutes.

    Melton took on a starting role Thursday with James Harden (personal) away from the team, and he made some contributions on both ends of the court in the narrow defeat. Harden has already been ruled out for Saturday's game in Toronto, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Melton continue to handle an increased role. Patrick Beverley also played 14 minutes off the bench, but Melton was the more productive option overall despite a somewhat inefficient showing from the floor.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Erupts for 29 without Harden

    Melton scored a game-high 29 points (11-16 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 25 minutes during Friday's 120-106 preseason win over the Hawks.

    With James Harden away from the team due to his trade demand and looking iffy for the start of the regular season, Melton got the start in the Philly backcourt alongside Tyrese Maxey and did his best to make fans forget about the absent superstar. Melton has gone 11-for-25 (44 percent) from three-point range this preseason, and while he's never averaged more than 10.8 points a night over an NBA season, he could be poised for significant fantasy value if Harden isn't on the court to begin the regular season.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Sniffs triple-double in win

    Melton logged 15 points (6-17 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and a block across 32 minutes in Monday's 127-119 preseason win over the Nets.

    Despite his shooting woes, Melton had one of the best individual performances of the 2023-24 preseason, as he ended just two rebounds away from a triple-double and excelled defensively with four steals. Melton is expected to see steady minutes off the bench as a backup guard due to his ability to play both roles, though he fits better at shooting guard. Melton has racked up 25 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds, five steals and three blocks in two preseason outings.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Getting chance to start

    Melton will start Monday's preseason game against the Nets, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

    Melton will get a chance to show what he can do with the first unit after James Harden (personal) was ruled out for Monday's exhibition. Melton pieced together a solid showing in his last preseason contest, putting up 10 points to go along with two assists, one rebound, one steal and two blocks in 21 bench minutes.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Handles full workload

    Melton (rest) played 21 minutes and recorded 10 points, two assists, one rebound, one steal and two blocks during Wednesday's 112-101 preseason loss to the Celtics.

    Melton sat out the 76ers' preseason opener but suited up Wednesday and saw 21 minutes off the bench. After averaging 27.9 minutes per game across 77 contests (58 starts) with Philadelphia last season, Melton figures to play a significant role off the bench behind Tyrese Maxey in 2023-24.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Practices Tuesday

    Melton (rest) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, Derek Bodner of reports.

    Melton rested during Philadelphia's preseason opener against the Celtics on Sunday, and despite practicing Tuesday, he can be considered questionable for Wednesday's rematch against Boston. The veteran guard dealt with a back injury last season, but he told reporters at the beginning of training camp that he's back to 100 percent.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Won't play Sunday

    Melton (rest) is inactive for Sunday's preseason opener against the Celtics, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Even amid James Harden's (personal) contract and team dilemma, Melton has little to prove in preseason action. It's possible that he appears in later contests as the regular season nears.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Dealt with back injury last season

    Melton said Monday that he played most of the 2022-23 campaign with a back injury, but he feels 100 percent healthy heading into 2023-24, Austin Krell of USA Today reports.

    The injury didn't seem to impact Melton much, as he set career highs in appearances (77), starts (58) and minutes played per game (27.9). He averaged 10.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals while posting 43/39/79 shooting splits. With James Harden's future in Philadelphia unclear, Melton may garner another significant role in his second season with the 76ers.
