The Pacers escaped with a win in Minnesota on Sunday thanks to C.J. Miles scoring 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting, including four 3-pointers.
Miles did his damage in 32 minutes off Indiana's bench, chipping in six rebounds with zero turnovers, assists, steals or blocks. He's been tremendous since returning to action on Dec. 15, and is worth a pickup based on his averages over the past four games -- 20.5 points, 2.7 threes, 4.7 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 turnovers.

C.J. Miles came off the bench to hit 6-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

He had 20 points and three 3-pointers on Monday night, and had a 30-point game on December 10. He appears to be over his knee injury and it would not be surprising to see him replace Solomon Hill in the starting lineup at some point in the near future. He's a streaky shooter and has trouble staying healthy, so make sure you can handle the headaches that are coming if you pick him up.

C.J. Miles (knee) played on Monday and scored 20 points with three triples in 26 minutes off the bench.

Miles hit 8-of-16 shots and had just one steal in the rest of his line, highlighting why he's not worth much in fantasy leagues. He's hot right now and also an injury risk, so give him a look as a shorter-term play and cross your fingers if you take the plunge.
Dec 16 - 1:05 AM

C.J. Miles will come off the bench on Monday night against the Lakers.

Solomon Hill is going to start again next to C.J. Watson, Rodney Stuckey, David West and Roy Hibbert. Miles had a 30-point game the last time he was healthy, but he had an injury on Friday. He could be valuable in fantasy leagues, but the lack of durability makes him tough to pick up. Hill is not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Dec 15 - 5:24 PM

Updating a previous item, C.J. Miles (knee) will return to the lineup on Monday against the Lakers.

Miles was considered questionable, but he's expected to give it a go. It's not clear if he'll start or come off the bench, but Solomon Hill's already-limited outlook takes a hit with Miles available.
Dec 15 - 11:14 AM

C.J. Miles (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Miles didn't play on Saturday against the Blazers, and his status is up in the air once again. If he can't suit up, Solomon Hill is expected to take his place in the starting lineup. As a starter in the small forward spot, Hill is averaging 9.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and a 3-pointer on 43 percent shooting.

C.J. Miles (knee) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

He hoped to play, but the Pacers are probably smart enough to know that using Miles at less than 100 percent is a dangerous game. Solomon Hill and Chris Copeland figure to get more minutes with Hill having the bigger upside in fantasy leagues. Miles can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Dec 13 - 5:03 PM

C.J. Miles hopes to return for Saturday's game against the Blazers after leaving Friday's game due to a bruised left knee.

Owners should know by now not to chase Miles' numbers and that's before we consider his durability issues. But for what it's worth it sounds like this injury is minor.
Dec 13 - 12:52 AM

C.J. Miles suffered a bruised left knee on Friday and will not return.

Well, he had a bruised knee earlier in the game and the team said he would return. After returning, he was ruled out later in the game. Miles is about as durable as Mr. Glass, so it's going to be very hard to count on him in fantasy leagues. Solomon Hill and Chris Copeland will benefit sans Miles. He finished with five points, one rebound, two steals and one 3-pointer.
Dec 12 - 8:58 PM

C.J. Miles will start on Friday night against the Raptors.

He is coming off a huge 30-point game on Wednesday and coach Frank Vogel looks like he wants to ride the hot hand. Miles was the heavy favorite to start at small forward in the offseason, but injuries and ineffectiveness hurt him. He's not quite worth grabbing in standard leagues just yet, but a strong game tonight could change that.
Dec 12 - 6:10 PM

C.J. Miles came off the bench to hit 11-of-22 shots and a career-high seven 3-pointers for a season-high 30 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

He was on fire from the get-go and Frank Vogel rolled with his hot hand, as guys like Roy Hibbert, Solomon Hill and Chris Copeland all got 18 or fewer minutes tonight. Miles has been coming on, hitting double figures in three of his last five games and playing like a All-Star tonight. His shot, as we saw early in the season, could disappear at any time, but as of now, he looks like a player who should be grabbed until we see how things shake out in Indy. Miles' 30 points equaled the total scored by the Pacers' starters tonight.
Dec 10 - 10:56 PM

C.J. Miles scored 15 points against the Hawks on Monday with two rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

It was the most minutes he's played in over a month, but garbage time was a bit of a factor. Miles has attempted 4.6 triples per game over his last five, averaging 9.8 points, 2.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.6 treys. He's worth a look if you need 3-pointers in a deeper league.
Dec 8 - 9:40 PM

C.J. Miles played his best game of the season on Tuesday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-9 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs in just 21 minutes off the Pacers' bench.

Miles made one 3-pointer and chipped in two rebounds and one steal in an encouraging performance. We'll need to see him do this a few more times before recommending him in any fantasy formats, but the opportunity is there.
Dec 2 - 11:48 PM

C.J. Miles (calf) returned to action on Monday, playing 17 minutes with six points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

Miles hit 2-of-7 shots with one three and he needs to prove he can stay on the court for a while before owners should pay him any attention.
Nov 25 - 12:44 AM

C.J. Miles (calf) is available for "spot minutes" on Monday against Dallas.

In other words, don't expect more than 10-15 minutes maximum from Miles even if he plays. With Rodney Stuckey (wrist) returning, the Pacers would be foolish to rush Miles back before he's ready or push him harder than they need to. They can't afford any more long-term injuries.
