C.J. Miles (strained calf) said that he's been playing alongside Rodney Stuckey in the Pacers' first unit during recent practices.
It's too early to declare Miles and Stuckey the team's starting swingmen, but the veterans appear to be the early favorites ahead of guys like Solomon Hill, C.J. Watson, Damjan Rudez and Chris Copeland. Hill has been filling in as a starter for portions of practice which Miles can't play in, due to his injury, and there's reason to believe this position battle is just getting started.

C.J. Miles missed some of Tuesday's practice due to a strained calf.

He suffered the injury earlier this month and coach Frank Vogel did say Miles' calf has healed. The team is just keeping his workload in check before the season starts. He'll likely come off the bench and should have a very high usage rate while he's on the court. He's a player to think about later in drafts.
Sep 30 - 7:39 PM

C.J. Miles has agreed to a four-year, $18 million contract with the Pacers.

The Pacers were reportedly looking to get Miles in on a mid-level exception and this is a fairly long deal from the team. The team is expected to go all out on Lance Stephenson, so Miles would likely come off the bench. He's not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues.

The Cavaliers are reportedly "lukewarm" about trying to re-sign swingman C.J. Miles.

Miles is a steady nine-year veteran who shot just under 40 percent beyond the arc last season, but he also struggled with injuries and the Cavs may be ready to part ways with Jarrett Jack, Dion Waiters, Alonzo Gee and Sergey Karasev all under contract. The Pacers have already met with Miles and are reportedly offering him a chunk of their mid-level exception, somewhere just north of $2 million per season.

Updating a previous blurb, the Pacers actually have the full $5.3 million mid-level exception to use on C.J. Miles, or they could also add another player with the leftover money.

Adrian Wojnarowski's original post suggested the Pacers would use a $2.1 million exception, but they actually have more money available. They are meeting with him on Tuesday and could certainly use a bench shooter with Evan Turner and Rasual Buter unlikely to be back. The Pacers tend not to count on their bench much, so there wouldn't be much of a chance for Miles to produce in fantasy while the Pacers are healthy.

Unrestricted free agent C.J. Miles will meet with the Pacers on Tuesday.

The Pacers have to look at players like this due to their cap issues, particularly if they want to re-sign Lance Stephenson. Miles would be an upgrade over Evan Turner, as bad as that sounds for the former No. 2 overall pick.
Jul 1 - 1:41 AM

C.J. Miles (ankle) will not play in the Cavaliers' season finale.

Miles hasn't played since mid-February and his absence is no surprise. He's heading into free agency and the Cavaliers have expressed an interest in re-signing him, as his 39.3 percent shooting from downtown this season gives him consistent appeal as a perimeter specialist.
Apr 16 - 12:28 PM

C.J. Miles (sprained ankle) hinted that his season might be over.

"I don’t really have that much time," he said. "I’ve got a certain amount of time before it fatigues because it’s not strong enough yet." The Cavaliers wrap up their season with games on Saturday and Wednesday, and we're not expecting Miles to risk a setback with unrestricted free agency looming on the horizon.
Apr 12 - 9:14 AM

C.J. Miles (ankle) will not play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He has been going through some physical activities, but there is not much optimism about a return. "C.J. took part in our shootaround a little bit today," coach Mike Brown said. "Beyond that, we’ll see how they progress." Dion Waiters has really stepped it up and the Cavs haven't missed Miles much since he's been out.
Apr 9 - 7:34 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) will miss Wednesday's game against Orlando.

Miles will be joined on the inactive list by Anderson Varejao and Anthony Bennett and it's unclear exactly any of them will return. Cleveland has an outside shot at the playoffs, but one or two more losses would essentially end their hopes and could spark a decision to shut down all three players. Miles has only played two minutes since mid-February, so he shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters at this point.
Apr 1 - 2:04 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) missed another game on Friday and there is no clear date for his return.

Miles has played a grand total of two minutes since mid-February and it's anyone's guess when he might be healthy enough to return. With Dion Waiters established as a go-to scorer in Kyrie Irving's absence, there's precious little upside for Miles even if he does resume playing in the near future.
Mar 28 - 10:21 PM

C.J. Miles sat out again on Sunday due to his sprained left ankle.

He's been sidelined for about five weeks, not including a short-lived comeback attempt on March 18, and it's anyone's guess if his ankle will fully heal this season. He should be ignored until we've seen him make it through a game in one piece.
Mar 24 - 11:59 AM

C.J. Miles (ankle) will not play vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

He played two minutes on Tuesday following a month-long absence, but the activity didn't suit him and he's right back on the sidelines. Miles is averaging 9.9 points in under 20 minutes per game off the bench this season, reducing him to a 3-point specialist even when he's fully healthy.
Mar 22 - 12:07 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) will miss Thursday's game against Oklahoma City.

Miles played two minutes on Tuesday after missing 12 games, but will return to the inactive list again on Thursday. It's unclear whether the Cavs are simply playing it safe with Miles or if he re-injured his ankle, but Alonzo Gee and Matthew Dellavedova will both benefit from Miles and Luol Deng's absence on Thursday.

C.J. Miles played two minutes on Tuesday after missing 12 straight games with an ankle injury.

He didn't score, and as long as Dion Waiters and Jarrett Jack are healthy, probably won't have any fantasy value the rest of the way.
