C.J. Miles played 19 minutes on Wednesday, finishing a 113-104 loss vs. Cleveland with eight points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.
Miles appeared to have an expanded opportunity with both Lavoy Allen (knee) and Thaddeus Young (wrist) on the sidelines, but he couldn't take advantage tonight. He's coming off the bench behind Glenn Robinson III but the result has been more losses for Indy, and things don't get easier vs. the rested Wizards on Thursday. Feb 15 - 10:17 PM

C.J. Miles moved to the bench as one of the few power forward options available to the Pacers tonight, but hit just 2-of-7 shots for five points, four boards, a steal and a 3-pointer in 22 minutes of Monday's 110-106 loss to the Spurs.

Miles has been as hit-or-miss as they come lately, scoring 18, 0, 16, 9, 13, 8, 23, 3, 23 and 5 points in each of his last 10 games. Maybe you just have to play him in the "odd" games, but his move to the bench tonight didn't help. With Lavoy Allen (knee) and Thaddeus Young (wrist) both out, the Pacers elected to use Miles off the bench and with the second unit, where he could attempt to fill in at power forward, which is clearly not his position. Regardless of where he's playing, his 10-game history suggests that a big game is coming against the Cavaliers on Wednesday, so act accordingly.
Feb 13 - 9:41 PM

C.J. Miles will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Miles averages 10.9 points per game as a starter and as a reserve, and while his minutes take a hit when he comes off the bench, he's usually more aggressive with the second unit. He's hitting 2.3 3-pointers per game this season, so keep throwing him out there if that's what you mostly need him for.
Feb 13 - 6:48 PM

C.J. Miles scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

With Jeff Teague struggling and Paul George in foul trouble, Miles stepped up tonight and hit six triples with two rebounds and a block in 33 minutes. Miles will either make you or break you most nights, as he's now scored 23, 3, 23, 8 and 13 points in his last five outings. If you like roller coaster rides, Miles might be for you.
Feb 11 - 10:58 PM

C.J. Miles was held to three points in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

Yikes. This comes on the heels of a 23-point effort on Wednesday, so this one has to hurt for any fantasy owners relying on him. He shot just 1-of-6 from the field and added two rebounds, two steals and one triple in 21 minutes. Unless you need him for his triples, he's tough to rely on as one of the streakiest shooters in the NBA.
Feb 11 - 1:07 AM

C.J. Miles poured in 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting on Wednesday, making six 3-pointers with four rebounds, one block and just one turnover.

Miles did his damage in 35 minutes tonight, and he continues to pile up 3-pointers for fantasy owners, if little else. The Pacers had won seven straight games prior to tonight's defeat, and all signs point to Miles finishing out the season as the team's starting SG. Feel free to deploy him as a specialist with upside.
Feb 8 - 10:12 PM

C.J. Miles started again on Monday but played just 20 minutes and hit 3-of-10 shots and a 1-of-7 3-pointers for eight points and three rebounds in a 93-90 win over the Thunder.

Despite starting for the Pacers, and playing some minutes at power forward while Thaddeus Young sits with a wrist injury, Miles has been completely hit-or-miss over his last five games. He'll get hot again soon, but Glenn Robinson III was feeling it off the bench tonight, hitting 5-of-5 shots for 14 points, three 3-pointers and a steal. Miles is worth a look if you need 3-pointers, but despite starting for Indy, is far from reliable in fantasy.
Feb 6 - 10:02 PM

C.J. Miles scored 13 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

Just like coach Nate McMillan said, Miles played 14 minutes at the four with Thaddeus Young (wrist) out. Miles should have a good opportunity to post nice scoring lines with plenty of treys while Young is out. The Pacers have four games this week, so Miles makes for a really nice option to use in standard weekly leagues.
Feb 4 - 10:57 PM

C.J. Miles is expected to see some minutes at power forward against the Pistons on Saturday.

This is expected because the Pacers don't want to give all of Thaddeus Young's minutes to Lavoy Allen. With that, there should be a few extra minutes going to Monta Ellis and Glenn Robinson III.
Feb 4 - 5:48 PM

C.J. Miles played 30 minutes against the Nets on Friday with nine points, four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

When Thaddeus Young (wrist) got hurt late and the Pacers were up, Miles checked in to help fill the void. He is likely looking at more shots while Young is out, so he's gains a little value as a pickup. We'll get news on Young on Saturday with an MRI scheduled before the game against the Pistons.
Feb 3 - 11:46 PM

C.J. Miles bounced back on Wednesday with 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting, including a 4-of-5 mark from downtown, adding four rebounds in 21 minutes.

Miles was coming off a scoreless 20-minute game on Sunday, and the strong play of Glenn Robinson III (14 points in 21 minutes) off the bench is doing him no favors. Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) also got back on the court tonight, adding extra competition for minutes, and Miles is just a borderline guy if you need 3-pointers.
Feb 1 - 9:48 PM

C.J. Miles (knee) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

Miles isn't being listed on the inactive list, so we imagine that he'll be earning another start tonight. He's about as hit-or-miss as they come, and playing on a bum knee does the opposite of improving his outlook. He's a risky guy to deploy in daily leagues today.
Feb 1 - 6:58 PM

C.J. Miles (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.

This is the first we've heard of this knee injury for Miles, who has started four straight games for the Pacers. However, Miles did struggle on Saturday, when he was held scoreless, missing all five of his shots, in just 20 minutes of action. It is possible he was playing through a knee issue. If Miles is unable to play on Wednesday, Glenn Robinson III and Monta Ellis would likely divvy up his minutes. Aaron Brooks could possibly see a few extra minutes off the bench as well.
Jan 31 - 1:45 PM

C.J. Miles missed all five of his field goals to finish Sunday's game with zero points and two rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

Miles wasn't getting shots in rhythm tonight, and didn't get spot-up looks, so the offense wasn't playing to his strengths. He came in hot, having scored 18 points on 6-of-9 threes in Friday's game, and his true value lies somewhere between these two extremes. He's a fine 3-point specialist, but doesn't offer very much in other categories.
Jan 29 - 8:52 PM

C.J. Miles scored 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and six 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

He's separating himself as the fifth-best player on the Pacers right now. Miles has 11 treys in his last three games combined and looks to have solidified a role around 30 minutes. He should be able to get over two treys per game, score in double figures and add some steals. If you need treys, give him a look.
