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.
Feb 24 - 5:26 PM

C.J. Miles played 19 minutes on Wednesday, finishing a 113-104 loss vs. Cleveland with eight points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Miles appeared to have an expanded opportunity with both Lavoy Allen (knee) and Thaddeus Young (wrist) on the sidelines, but he couldn't take advantage tonight. He's coming off the bench behind Glenn Robinson III but the result has been more losses for Indy, and things don't get easier vs. the rested Wizards on Thursday.
Feb 15 - 10:17 PM

C.J. Miles moved to the bench as one of the few power forward options available to the Pacers tonight, but hit just 2-of-7 shots for five points, four boards, a steal and a 3-pointer in 22 minutes of Monday's 110-106 loss to the Spurs.

Miles has been as hit-or-miss as they come lately, scoring 18, 0, 16, 9, 13, 8, 23, 3, 23 and 5 points in each of his last 10 games. Maybe you just have to play him in the "odd" games, but his move to the bench tonight didn't help. With Lavoy Allen (knee) and Thaddeus Young (wrist) both out, the Pacers elected to use Miles off the bench and with the second unit, where he could attempt to fill in at power forward, which is clearly not his position. Regardless of where he's playing, his 10-game history suggests that a big game is coming against the Cavaliers on Wednesday, so act accordingly.
Feb 13 - 9:41 PM

C.J. Miles will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Miles averages 10.9 points per game as a starter and as a reserve, and while his minutes take a hit when he comes off the bench, he's usually more aggressive with the second unit. He's hitting 2.3 3-pointers per game this season, so keep throwing him out there if that's what you mostly need him for.
Feb 13 - 6:48 PM

C.J. Miles scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

With Jeff Teague struggling and Paul George in foul trouble, Miles stepped up tonight and hit six triples with two rebounds and a block in 33 minutes. Miles will either make you or break you most nights, as he's now scored 23, 3, 23, 8 and 13 points in his last five outings. If you like roller coaster rides, Miles might be for you.
Feb 11 - 10:58 PM

C.J. Miles was held to three points in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

Yikes. This comes on the heels of a 23-point effort on Wednesday, so this one has to hurt for any fantasy owners relying on him. He shot just 1-of-6 from the field and added two rebounds, two steals and one triple in 21 minutes. Unless you need him for his triples, he's tough to rely on as one of the streakiest shooters in the NBA.
Feb 11 - 1:07 AM

C.J. Miles poured in 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting on Wednesday, making six 3-pointers with four rebounds, one block and just one turnover.

Miles did his damage in 35 minutes tonight, and he continues to pile up 3-pointers for fantasy owners, if little else. The Pacers had won seven straight games prior to tonight's defeat, and all signs point to Miles finishing out the season as the team's starting SG. Feel free to deploy him as a specialist with upside.
Feb 8 - 10:12 PM

C.J. Miles started again on Monday but played just 20 minutes and hit 3-of-10 shots and a 1-of-7 3-pointers for eight points and three rebounds in a 93-90 win over the Thunder.

Despite starting for the Pacers, and playing some minutes at power forward while Thaddeus Young sits with a wrist injury, Miles has been completely hit-or-miss over his last five games. He'll get hot again soon, but Glenn Robinson III was feeling it off the bench tonight, hitting 5-of-5 shots for 14 points, three 3-pointers and a steal. Miles is worth a look if you need 3-pointers, but despite starting for Indy, is far from reliable in fantasy.
