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 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.
Nov 24 - 12:34 PM

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

Nate McMillan said that Miles has a "deep bruise" on his left knee and that he will be re-evaluated sometime next week, so it sounds like he'll also miss Friday game against the Nets as well as Sunday's matchup with the Clippers. With Miles unavailable, Rodney Stuckey will likely pick up most of his minutes, and he'll look to build off Monday's 24-point outing.
Nov 23 - 10:59 AM

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) has been ruled out for the next two games.

Nate McMillan said that Miles' MRI came back clean, and while he'll miss both Sunday and Monday's games, he hopes to have him back in action later this week. Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) and Glenn Robinson III will likely split Miles' minutes, and Monta Ellis is going to get all the run he can handle.

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

Miles injured his left knee early in the first quarter and it was determined rather quickly that he would not be available to return. Rather than speculate as to the extent of the injury, we will have to wait until we hear the results from the MRI. Glenn Robinson III ended up playing 25 minutes in Friday's loss. He might be an intriguing option on Sunday in DFS tournaments if his price remains near the minimum.
Nov 19 - 12:34 PM

C.J. Miles will undergo an MRI on his sore left knee on Saturday.

Paul George (ankle) is also getting an MRI, but hopefully we get good news regarding both. Miles was ruled out pretty quickly after leaving Friday's game, so that's usually not a great sign. Look for Glenn Robinson III to pick up some extra minutes if Miles or George misses additional time.
Nov 18 - 9:45 PM

Updating a previous item, C.J. Miles (sore left knee) has been ruled out for the rest of Friday's game.

After just two minutes from a "questionable to return" update, Miles gets ruled out. Perhaps his knee is swelling up on him or something else changed here. He's a slow healer and the Pacers may take it easy on him. With Paul George (ankle) unlikely for Sunday and getting an MRI, we might get plenty of Glenn Robinson III.
Nov 18 - 7:36 PM

C.J. Miles (sore left knee) is questionable to return against the Suns on Friday.

This is encouraging news, but Miles does suffer a slew of in-game injuries and could be done for the night. If he is going to miss time, it'll be Glenn Robinson III picking up some extra minutes while Paul George (ankle) is on the shelf. Miles' fantasy owners shouldn't totally press the panic button.
Nov 18 - 7:34 PM

C.J. Miles injured his left leg in the first quarter and went to the locker room.

He was in a lot of pain and was grabbing just below his knee. Miles slipped and hyperextended his left knee, but he was able to walk off under his own power. He may be done for the night, but walking off under his own power is a good sign. We'll have an update shortly.
Nov 18 - 7:30 PM

C.J. Miles will start Friday night vs. the Suns

Miles will start in place of the injured Paul George. Miles has been playing well of late. He is averaging 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.4 3-pointers and 1.0 steals over his last five games. Rodney Stuckey will play Friday, but will be limited to just 10-15 minutes. Miles is worth consideration in DFS.
Nov 18 - 5:24 PM

C.J. Miles scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting with a pair of 3-pointers on Wednesday, but he added just one steal without any rebounds, assists or blocks.

Miles has been on a hot streak lately, aided by the absence of Rodney Stuckey, but he's prone to some hollow lines with little beyond the scoring categories. If you've been enjoying his production over the past few weeks, keep rolling him out there.
Nov 16 - 10:11 PM

C.J. Miles came off the bench on Monday vs. the Magic and scored 16 points in 23 minutes.

He's going to have more fantasy value in a bench role and you saw why tonight. Miles saw more touches with the second unit and connected on 5-of-12 form the field and 4-of-8 from deep, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks. He needs to be owned everywhere until the wheels fall off.
Nov 14 - 9:32 PM

Updating a previous update, C.J. Miles is not listed in the starting lineup on Monday.

Apparently Nate McMillan can't make up his mind. Monta Ellis is listed in the starting lineup, but Miles will likely have more value off the bench anyways.
