C.J. Miles scored 16 points with three rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers against the Bulls on Friday.
Miles was putting up some awesome numbers this week and he took a step back tonight. Still, this line is pretty solid and even if he's close to a game like this he should have some nice value. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Nov 28 - 12:45 AM

C.J. Miles, who was a little iffy coming into Tuesday night with a sore ankle, hit 10-of-16 shots, 8-of-9 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for a career-high 32 points, three boards, three assists and a steal.

The Pacers set a franchise record with 19 3-pointers made (Paul George hit seven), which is saying something considering Reggie Miller spent his entire career with the Pacers. The Pacers just couldn't miss, hitting 19-of-26 from downtown, good for 73 percent. Miles has been killing it lately, scoring between 19 and 32 in his last four games and knocking down 20 3-pointers during that stretch. Hopefully you had him in your lineup for the hot streak, but just beware that his next missed game could be just around the corner, as he always seems to be banged up.

C.J. Miles (ankle) will start Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

Miles suffered a minor ankle injury during Sunday's practice, but he was probable heading into this one, so him playing is far from surprising. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Wizards tonight, so make sure you have him active.
Nov 24 - 6:25 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) is probable to play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

He played through an ankle tweak on Saturday and looked good in the process. Miles tends to get hurt in games more than almost anyone, but he's performed at shooting guard and has put up mid-round value on the season. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Nov 23 - 2:55 PM

C.J. Miles rolled his ankle during Sunday's practice, and the Pacers are currently listing him as day-to-day.

The Pacers don't play until Tuesday vs. the Wizards, and Miles was able to walk off the court under his own power, so there's a chance he doesn't miss any time with this injury. However, if isn't able to go on Tuesday, Chase Budinger and Glenn Robinson III would have some more opportunity for playing time. Stay tuned.
Nov 22 - 2:12 PM

C.J. Miles got another start at shooting guard on Saturday against the Bucks with 21 points, one rebound, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He clearly likes starting at shooting guard. In his previous two starts at guard, Miles averaged 19.5 points, 2.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 4.5 treys. He's one of the kings of the in-game injury and is wildly inconsistent, but Miles is worth a look for anyone needing treys and scoring.
Nov 21 - 9:29 PM

C.J. Miles found the range vs. Philly on Wednesday, hitting four 3-pointers to finish with 20 points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal.

He made 7-of-12 shots overall, and over the past two games he's made 9-of-15 from downtown. Indiana ranks 17th in three-pointers made this season so Frank Vogel is obviously encouraging Miles to bomb away, and he's doing enough to be a subtle top-100 value as a starter.
Nov 18 - 10:02 PM

C.J. Miles scored 19 points with two rebounds, one steal and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

He made 6-of-12 from the field and was an important floor-spacing option with George Hill (illness) out tonight. Miles was in a little bit of a slump this season and made just 39.7 percent from the field before tonight. His inconsistency makes him a little too tough to own in standard leagues. He's certainly worth a look, though.
Nov 16 - 11:35 PM

C.J. Miles returned from an in-game face injury on Friday, finishing with eight points, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He is one of the kings of the in-game injury, but at least he got back out there tonight. Miles has cooled off considerably since his solid start, so he's more of a 14-team guy right now.
Nov 13 - 10:24 PM

C.J. Miles passed the league mandated concussion protocol testing, and has been cleared to play.

The Pacers are calling Miles' injury a forehead contusion, and he has since returned to the court. He's fine, and we'll let you know how he does after the game.
Nov 13 - 8:25 PM

C.J. Miles headed to the Pacers locker room after a head-to-head collision with Zach LaVine on Friday.

He'll likely be tested for concussion symptoms, and we should have an update soon. The Pacers deployed more big lineups without Miles available in recent games, and if he can't return more minutes would also be available for Glenn Robinson III.
Nov 13 - 8:00 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) looked good in 29 minutes vs. Boston, posting 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and four turnovers in the road win.

He hit one 3-pointer and was 4-of-4 at the FT line in an encouraging and efficient performance. As long as he's starting, Miles should get enough points, 3s and steals to be worth stashing in deeper leagues.
Nov 11 - 11:00 PM

C.J. Miles returned from his ankle injury on Monday and hit 3-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for nine points, two rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes.

He's worth a look in deep leagues as long as he's starting for the Pacers, but hasn't been nearly as good (or healthy) after getting off to a hot start to the season.
Nov 9 - 10:03 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) and Rodney Stuckey (ankle) will play vs. the Magic on Monday.

Miles is expected to start, so it's safe to assume that Paul George will slide over to power forward and Jordan Hill will move to the bench. If you need help in points and 3-pointers, Miles might be your guy. Keep in mind that head coach Frank Vogel will pull him out of the lineup if his ankle bothers him.
Nov 9 - 5:28 PM

C.J. Miles (sore right ankle) and Rodney Stuckey (sprained right ankle) are both questionable to play on Monday against the Magic.

Miles and Stuckey both sat out of Sunday's contest vs. Cleveland, but each was eyeing a potential return as early as this particular game. If Miles is able to return, Paul George should shift back down to power forward in the starting lineup, while Stuckey's return would provide a bench to a boost that could really use it. Glenn Robinson and Chase Budinger stand to lose playing time upon Miles and Stuckey getting back on the floor.
