Patty Mills scored 18 points with four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.
He provides a huge spark off the bench and was a potent stat guy in his playing time last season. The Spurs kicking Cory Joseph out of the rotation speaks volumes about their confidence in Joseph, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. Jan 17 - 12:55 AM

Patty Mills shot 4-of-6 from downtown to finish Tuesday's loss in Washington D.C. with 12 points, two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes.

Fellow backup guard Cory Joseph pitched in six points and five assists in 24 minutes. Mills has averaged 2.0 triples over the Spurs' past five games, but he's not offering fantasy owners much beyond points and 3s. He's earned extra playing time lately due to absent teammates (tonight it was Marco Belinelli), but Mills' value will be hard to sustain if the Spurs' backcourt every stays healthy.

Patty Mills stepped up with 19 points against the Wolves on Saturday with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He's going to be asked to score more with Manu Ginobili (back) out, which is promising for one of the leaders in usage rate among bench guys last season. Mills should be able to flirt with mid-round value sans Manu, so give him a look.
Jan 11 - 1:54 AM

Patty Mills is starting to feel more comfortable after returning from his offseason shoulder surgery.

"I think he feels more comfortable each game," Gregg Popovich said. "It just takes time. His shot is looking better, he’s starting to figure out where to be on the court." Mills will continue to serve as a spark plug off the bench, and his return is welcomed with Tony Parker (hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (hand) still dealing with injuries.
Jan 5 - 10:30 AM

Patty Mills scored 15 points in 15 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

He is routinely among the league leaders for usage rate off the bench. Mills should still get his playing time in the low 20s even when Tony Parker (hamstring) returns, so he's worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 4 - 1:11 AM

Patty Mills played 29 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with seven points, two rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 3-of-9 shooting.

His line wasn't great, but the minutes mean it's time to put him on your radar. If he keeps playing heavy minutes, Cory Joseph's value will take a hit, although both players will fade once Tony Parker is over his hamstring injury.

Patty Mills (shoulder) made his season debut on Sunday, finishing with eight points in 20 minutes off the Spurs' bench, to go along with four rebounds, one assist and one block.

Mills returned at the perfect time with Tony Parker (hamstring) potentially out for an extended period, and even forced a crucial turnover with 25 seconds left in a one-possession game. Gregg Popovich should slowly ramp up Mills' minutes in the coming weeks, but his fantasy value is dampened by the presence of Cory Joseph, Tony Parker (hamstring), Manu Ginobili and Danny Green.

Updating a previous report, Patty Mills (shoulder) will suit up for Sunday's game vs. Houston.

Mills will likely be eased back into the rotation, so he's not going to have much value tonight in an unfavorable matchup with the Rockets. However, if he can get up to full speed before Tony Parker returns from his hamstring injury he could provide some short-term value in deeper leagues.

Patty Mills (shoulder) will not play on Sunday vs. Houston.

He is said to be targeting a return in late December, so his next chance to suit up would be on Tuesday vs. Memphis. Mills could have some short-term value in deeper leagues with Tony Parker (hamstring) sidelined, but he will likely be eased into the rotation upon his return. Keep a close eye on him moving forward.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 09:26:00 PM

Patty Mills (shoulder) is hopeful he'll be able to return to the lineup for one of the Spurs' four remaining December games.

While Mills is optimistic, head coach Gregg Popovich will need some convincing before he allows him to step into any game-time action. "I’m going to hold him off as long as I can," Popovich said. "There will be a point he won’t allow me to do that any more and that’s fine. But for right now I’m winning the battle." Mills will likely be brought along slowly, and as long as Tony Parker is healthy, Mills can remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

Patty Mills (shoulder) has been cleared to resume basketball activities, but still isn't close to playing in a game.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said Mills was cleared to practice two days ago, but Mills isn't expected to see game action until mid-January, at the earliest. He'll only be worth a look by owners in deeper leagues, at least as long as Tony Parker is somewhat healthy.
Thu, Dec 25, 2014 01:14:00 PM

Patty Mills (shoulder) is still targeting a return in January, and has been able to participate fully in shootarounds.

He is still on track to meet his timetable which is awesome news for the Spurs. However, Mills will likely be eased back into the rotation and will only be an asset in deeper leagues upon his return.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 07:29:00 PM

Patty Mills (shoulder) is targeting a return on January 15.

Mills is "working every day" to get back, and Mills thinks he's in "pretty good shape" to meet the January 15 timetable. Mills is dribbling the ball and doing conditioning drills, but he just started shooting last week. Mills said he won't rush back before he's ready, but there's no reason to think his return will be delayed beyond mid-January.

Patty Mills (shoulder) was going through shell drills on Monday.

Mills has looked good in recent workouts, but he's still expected to be out until January. For now, there is no reason to monitor his progress, but it's encouraging he's making strides toward a return.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 12:17:00 PM

The Spurs are still expecting Patty Mills (shoulder) to debut this season in January.

He's doing well and hasn't had a setback. Cory Joseph will back up Tony Parker and the injury to Mills has forced Parker to get a little more run.
