C.J. Miles hit 6-of-12 shots, all of which were 3-pointers, on his way to 19 points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and a block in just 17 minutes off the Raptors' bench in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.
Wow. The six 3-pointers tied his season high, which came on opening night when he had 22 points in just 20 minutes. We thought Miles might get extra run without Norman Powell (hip) around, but it was starter OG Anunoby who got 30 minutes tonight. Anunoby might continue to get starts for as long as Powell is out, but it would be surprising if Miles doesn't at least approach 23 minutes off the bench in that scenario. Neither Miles or Anunoby are must-own players, but taking a flier on either of them while Powell is out might make sense in 12-team or deeper leagues. Nov 14 - 11:16 PM

C.J. Miles came off the bench for 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting during Sunday's narrow loss to the Celtics, adding two 3-pointers, one rebound, two steals, one block and one turnover in 21 minutes.

Norman Powell (hip) was spotted on crutches after the game, so if he's forced into an extended absence, Miles would assuredly see an uptick in minutes. He doesn't really do much aside from score and hit triples, but he could be someone to consider swooping up in deep leagues if you're deficient in those categories.
Nov 12 - 6:56 PM

C.J. Miles (illness) logged 13 minutes on Sunday but he shot 0-of-5 to finish scoreless with one rebound and one assist.

Miles sat out Friday's game and clearly wasn't 100 percent tonight -- when asked before the game how he felt, he replied, "I'm walking." Toronto fell behind early tonight, and coach Dwane Casey quickly had no reason to push his veteran SF more than necessary. Expect the minutes to tick upward vs. Chicago on Tuesday.
Nov 5 - 9:06 PM

C.J. Miles (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Wizards.

He's still not 100 percent, so he might not get a full complement of minutes tonight, but he'll try and get out there. Norman Powell had been playing well in Miles' absence, so hopefully, his return doesn't mess with Powell's minutes.
Nov 5 - 4:32 PM

C.J. Miles (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

He missed shootaround and was considered doubtful, so hopefully his owners had a backup plan ready. With Miles out, it will be interesting to see if Norman Powell can finally get it going. Expect to see more of OG Anunoby as well.
Nov 3 - 8:03 PM

C.J. Miles (illness) was unable to participate in shootaround and is doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

Miles has had a relatively disappointing start to the 2017-18 season. He is averaging 9.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.3 treys in 19.6 minutes per game. If Miles is unable to suit up, Norman Powell and OG Anunoby would see extended minutes on Friday night. Powell is worth a look as a DFS dart throw.
Nov 3 - 12:34 PM

C.J. Miles scored 22 points with five rebounds and six 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

"You had one job" isn't just an internet diss, it's also basically how you describe C.J. Miles. He'll be chucking for just about all of his minutes on the bench, especially with how the Raptors said they want to change their culture with more treys. His output in 3-pointers automatically puts him on the board in standard leagues, so give him a look if you have something to cut and he fits your team.
Oct 19 - 10:52 PM

Dwane Casey implied that C.J. Miles will be coming off the bench in Toronto's season opener against Chicago on Thursday.

Casey said that Miles has "done a great job as a bench leader," which would strongly suggest that Norman Powell will open the year as Toronto's starting three-man. Miles could be considered a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, but Powell is the guy you want to target in 12-team settings.
Oct 17 - 2:28 PM

C.J. Miles scored 27 points with three rebounds, one assist and six 3-pointers against the Bulls on Friday.

The Raptors really want to shoot more 3-pointers this year, which is why Miles could possibly start on this team. He likely won't be doing anything else and he's still going to give minutes to Norman Powell and maybe even Delon Wright, so he's only a last-round specialist.
Oct 13 - 11:37 PM

C.J. Miles started at SF for the Raptors on Sunday, finishing with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and one assist.

Norman Powell looms as a potential threat to Miles' starting job, with coach Dwane Casey saying the decision hinges on their "fit" with the unit. Miles is a streaky fantasy option, but is worth considering if you need 3-pointers at the end of a draft.
Oct 2 - 1:12 AM

The Raptors will start Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, C.J. Miles, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas for Sunday's exhibition.

Miles will try to fend off Norman Powell for the starting job on opening night, and his perimeter shooting could be crucial to spread the court for Toronto. This is a position battle to watch over the next few weeks.
Oct 1 - 8:55 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said the starting small forward position is still up in the air.

The position battle is between C.J. Miles and Norman Powell with OG Anunoby (knee) limited early on. Powell has the higher upside, but Miles will provide some value as a 3-point specialist if he wins the starting role after hitting 2.2 triples per game in three straight seasons.
Sep 25 - 11:09 AM

The Raptors made the signing of C.J. Miles official on Tuesday.

Miles was acquired from Indiana in the Corey Joseph sign-and-trade deal, and his contract with Toronto is reportedly for three years at $25 million with a player option on Year-3. Miles will likely be competing with Norman Powell for a starters designation over the course of training camp, so that's a battle we'll be watching closely. However, even as a starter, Miles wouldn't be much more than a deep league, 3-point specialist in fantasy hoops.

The Raptors are finalizing a sign-and-trade with Indiana to move Cory Joseph for CJ Miles according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Woj adds that the deal is agreed to in principle and should be completed soon -- Miles will sign a 3-year deal worth $25 million with a player option on the third year. The Raptors moved DeMarre Carroll to Brooklyn in a salary dump, so Miles would be a nice addition on the wings as a 3-point threat off the bench -- he hit 2.2 treys on a 41.3 percent clip last season. The arrival of Miles isn't ideal for Norman Powell or OG Anunoby, but Powell should still see a significant increase in minutes in 2017-18.
Jul 9 - 1:35 PM

Minnesota is reportedly interested in pursuing a sign-and-trade deal for C.J. Miles.

The reported sign-and-trade deal would involve Indiana acquiring Cole Aldrich and a 2018 pick from OKC in exchange for Miles, so it'll be interesting to see what becomes of this report. This is the second report we've had regarding the Timberwolves pursuing a deal for Miles, so there does indeed appear to be interest there.
