C.J. Miles scored 20 points against the Nuggets on Thursday with four rebounds, one assist and six 3-pointers in 20 minutes.
He only needed seven attempts from deep to get to his six makes. If a First-Team All Streaky thing existed, Miles would probably make the team. He's starting to warm up from three over his last three games, making 61.1 percent from there for his 3.7 makes. If you want to give him a look for next week, he does have four games and should be a top-100 value for the week, assuming he stays healthy. Jan 12 - 5:20 PM

C.J. Miles scored 15 points with three rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He closed this game out and his minutes were not really affected with Monta Ellis (groin) returning. Miles should still be able to get minutes in the mid 20s and he's been hot before, so he's worth a long look if you need scoring. Just remember he's not the most consistent fellow out there.

C.J. Miles played 25 minutes on Monday but missed all six of his shots and failed to score in a 90-85 loss to the Bulls.

The Pacers weren't sharp tonight and this one snapped a four-game streak of double-digit games for Miles. He's hard to trust given his injury history, but he had 19 points last Thursday and appeared to be heating up. He might have eaten too much ham and turkey on Christmas Day and he'll try to bounce back on Wednesday against the Wizards.

C.J. Miles scored 19 points in 27 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday, adding two rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers.

Even though he didn't start, Miles played the entire fourth quarter and carried the Pacers with all 19 of his points in that frame. Miles is one of the streakiest players in the NBA, but it's very clear coach Nate McMillan trusts him with close to 30 minutes. He's worth a look if you need a scoring boost in standard leagues.

C.J. Miles played 30 minutes off the bench, but hit just 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points and two rebounds in Monday's win over the Wizards.

Miles and starter Glenn Robinson are filling in for injured Monta Ellis (groin) and hit just 5-of-12 shots for a total of 15 points and six rebounds in 61 combined minutes tonight. That's not going to get it done, but the Pacers won and Miles looks like a safer fantasy play than RG3 right now. Miles is running cold right now, scoring 10 or fewer points in three straight games and averaging just 10.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers on 36 percent shooting over his last five. He's due to break out of his funk soon.

C.J. Miles made 1-of-9 from the field for five points off the bench against the Pelicans on Thursday, adding five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

As bad as this was, Miles closed this game out and he's playing some solid defense. Miles will continue to be an inconsistent guy due to how only 15 percent of his shots come at the rim, but he'll get plenty of burn while Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) and Monta Ellis (groin) are out. If you need some treys and scoring, Miles could go back to his hot ways from earlier this season.

C.J. Miles made 5-of-10 shots with three 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Wednesday, finishing a road loss to the Heat with 15 points and two rebounds.

Miles had a torrid stretch earlier this season but a knee injury ruined his momentum, and he's been up-and-down in the seven games since his return. The biggest issue is playing time -- Monta Ellis (groin) continues to miss games, but Miles still hasn't seen a ton of minutes with Glenn Robinson III stepping up in the rotation. At the moment, he's just a speculative pickup if you need points and 3-pointers.

C.J. Miles failed to score in 14 minutes on Saturday vs. the Blazers, missing all three of his shots from the field.

Miles had 18 points with six triples the previous night against Dallas, so his disappearing act was puzzling, especially with Monta Ellis leaving the game at halftime with a groin issue. Miles added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block, but his owners may want to give him another chance if they picked up him after his scoring outburst on Friday.

C.J. Miles hit six 3-pointers on his way to 18 points against the Mavericks on Friday.

He was 6-of-9 from the field and all of his attempts were from beyond the arc. He played 28 minutes and added four rebounds, one assist and two steals, but this comes on the heels of a two-point dud on Wednesday vs. the Suns. He's a fun player to own when he gets hot, so taking a flier on him if you need triples is the right call.

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) came off Indiana's bench with 12 points and five rebounds on Sunday, making 4-of-7 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in just 15 minutes.

"You can go as hard as you can, but it’s still going to take you a little bit more of game playing to get into actual game shape," Miles said before tonight's contest. He didn't seem to miss a beat, however, and is worth grabbing if you need an efficient scorer and 3-point shooter who won't turn the ball over. His playing time should increase over Indy's next few games.

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) will play Sunday vs. the Clippers.

Miles will be returning from a six-game absence, and Nate McMillan hinted that he could be working with a minutes limit in his first game back, so he's not a great DFS target tonight. However, he was playing really well prior to going down, so he's worth a speculative add in standard leagues. Rodney Stuckey and Glenn Robinson III will take a hit with Miles back on the active roster.

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) will not play Wednesday in Portland, but there is a possibility he returns Sunday vs. the Clippers.

Wednesday will be the sixth game Miles misses due to a deep bone bruise in his left knee. However, Miles is certainly trending in the right direction, as coach Nate McMillan confirmed that Miles was able to participate in practice on Tuesday. Miles had been playing well before injuring his knee, averaging 13.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.0 steals over the first 13 games of the season. Thanks in part to terrific shooting percentages (49.2 percent from the floor and 90.5 percent from the free throw line), Miles currently ranks 42nd overall, according to BasketballMonster.com. If you have roster space and he is still sitting on your league's waiver wire, he is worth a speculative add.

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) was able to go through some individual work on Monday.

Miles has missed the past five games with a sore knee, but he's going to be re-evaluated this week, and his sweat-drenched post to Snapchat indicates he's moving in a positive direction. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Portland, and owners can expect to get a few more updates in the intervening days leading up to Wednesday's tip. Paul George is going to miss Wednesday's game, so Miles could be forced into heavy minutes if he does return on Wednesday.

C.J. Miles (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Sunday.

With Paul George (ankle) also out, it's Glenn Robinson III time. Robinson III went off in a dream matchup against the Nets with 20 points in 40 minutes. He obviously has tougher sledding on Sunday, but Robinson is worth a short-term look and is a nice DFS punt.

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) will not play against the Nets on Friday.

Miles is still dealing with a deep bruise on his left knee and will miss Friday's game against Brooklyn. Rodney Stuckey and Glenn Robinson III will pick up most of Miles' minutes on Friday and are worth a look in deeper leagues.
