C.J. Miles is unsure if he will opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer.
Miles has a player option worth $4.8 million for the 2017-18 season. "I haven’t made a decision yet, but I’ll sit down with my agent in the next couple of days," Miles said after the Pacers were eliminated by the Cavs on Sunday. "If it does happen [opting out], it’s not solely because I’m trying to get out of here. It’s a business decision." With the salary cap rising this summer, Miles will be able to make more than $5 million on the open market. Thus, it's safe to assume he will opt out. Apr 25 - 10:14 AM

C.J. Miles scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, adding two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one block through 25 minutes as a starter.

Miles had an up-and-down year, but his 2.2 triples per game had him flirting with late-round value on the season. Still, he won’t be worth much more than a last-round flier in deep leagues for those seeking a 3-point specialist in next year’s drafts.

C.J. Miles will start over Monta Ellis again in Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Miles is generally more aggressive in the second unit, but his splits as a starter and reserve during the regular season are very similar. Miles can get hot in a hurry which makes him a DFS tournament play, but he's also no stranger to duds. In a start in Game 3, Miles scored nine points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

C.J. Miles scored nine points in the starting lineup during a loss to the Cavs on Thursday, adding two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

It made a lot of sense to start Miles, but he was not looking for his shot at all. Miles made just 3-of-6 from the field, which may have been due to the comments from Paul George saying he should've had the last shot in Game 1. Miles is probably going to make another start for Game 4, but his usage looks like it'll remain low.
Apr 20 - 10:13 PM

C.J. Miles is set to start for Game 3 against the Cavs on Thursday.

This will move Monta Ellis to the bench. The Cavs have been causing the Pacers to switch a lot, so getting Miles out there adds some size to help prevent LeBron James getting a small on him. Miles should be looking at minutes in the 20s, so he could be an interesting option. Of course, he's one of the most inconsistent players as a starter.
Apr 20 - 6:15 PM

C.J. Miles went off for a season-high 27 points on Sunday, making 8-of-13 shots with five 3-pointers, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 34 minutes.

It's the sixth time this season that Miles has scored 20+ points, but he has notched at least 15 in three straight. He was also 6-of-6 at the line tonight and is a combined 27-of-28 since March 1st, which is a bonus for roto owners. Miles runs as hot and cold as anyone, so deploy him at your own risk.
Apr 2 - 10:45 PM

C.J. Miles scored 15 points with three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

With Lance Stephenson now in the mix, it'll be interesting to see how coach Nate McMillan splits his wing minutes. Unless Miles is hot early, it's likely he drops below his season average of 23.4 minutes per game going forward. He's a drop candidate.
Mar 31 - 9:36 PM

C.J. Miles shifted to the bench on Sunday, where he notched 10 points, six rebounds and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

The Pacers haven't lost at home to the Sixers since 2013, a streak of seven games, and tonight's game was never really in doubt. They ran away to finish with a 107-94 advantage, so it's more than likely that Miles will stick in the second unit behind a starting backcourt of Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis. It's not the worst thing for his fantasy value since he was scuffling along as a low-usage starter.
Mar 26 - 9:21 PM

C.J. Miles will return to the second unit for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

Monta Ellis is back in the starting five, so Miles will shift to backing up Paul George at the three-spot. Miles can't be viewed as anything more than a 3-point specialist in really deep leagues.
Mar 26 - 4:23 PM

C.J. Miles did not start the second half on Friday, finishing with seven points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer before fouling out in 18 minutes.

The Nuggets big lineup was a problem for the Pacers and Miles was in foul trouble. He is about as inconsistent as they come and he's not playing well right now, so he's not really worth owning.
Mar 24 - 11:58 PM

C.J. Miles scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting in Monday's loss to the Hornets, adding four rebounds, four assists and four triples in 33 minutes.

Miles is firmly on the radar as a pickup and scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting on Sunday with five boards, two assists, three 3-pointers and one turnover in 33 minutes. Lavoy Allen (knee) has been on the shelf and Thaddeus Young has been limited by his wrist issue, so the good news for Miles is that the Pacers are playing a lot more small ball which opens up more minutes at the three. Give him a look if you need 3-pointers.
Mar 6 - 11:02 PM

C.J. Miles scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting Sunday, to go with five boards, two assists, three 3-pointers and one turnover in 33 minutes.

Miles has played very well since coming out of the All-Star break, owning averages of 13.2 points, 4.2 boards, 3.4 triples and just 0.6 turnovers per game on 50.0 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-70 value in standard 9-cat leagues. Him shooting 50.0 percent from the field is definitely not sustainable, but he's certainly worth owning as a deep league 3-point specialist.
Mar 5 - 5:10 PM

C.J. Miles scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting on Wednesday, hitting four 3-pointers with six rebounds and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

Miles passed Troy Murphy for seventh-most 3-pointers in Pacers' franchise history, highlighting his specialized skill-set. Ten of his 15 shot attempts were from deep tonight, and his perimeter exploits (averaging 2.7 triples over the past month) are enough to earn him an end-of-bench spot on most rosters.
Mar 2 - 1:30 AM

C.J. Miles moved back into the starting lineup against the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and five 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

The Pacers got the good version of Miles with him leading the team in scoring. He should be sticking in the first unit and will be bombing treys for spacing, so he's worth a look if you need some scoring and 3-pointers. Of course, don't expect many two-block, two-steal games.
Feb 24 - 9:53 PM

C.J. Miles is expected to start and Glenn Robinson will come off the bench on Friday against the Grizzlies.

Coach Nate McMillan said this move is contingent on Thaddeus Young (wrist) starting. Young is probable, so Miles should be in the first unit today. His value shouldn't change too much in the starting lineup as a 3-point specialist.
