Patty Mills broke out of a mini-slump to score 17 points vs. the Nuggets, hitting 7-of-15 shots with three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.
Mills added six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block, combining with Tony Parker to score 42 points in the Spurs' sixth consecutive win. Give Mills a look if you need a low-end source of 3-pointers, assists and steals. Nov 19 - 12:07 AM

Patty Mills scored five points on 2-of-11 from the field against the 76ers on Saturday with one rebound, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer.

That's a letdown for a lot of DFS owners with Manu Ginobili (groin) and Kawhi Leonard (illness) out. He should have a better game the next time Manu needs to miss a game.
Nov 14 - 11:48 PM

Patty Mills scored a season-high 15 points against the Hornets on Saturday, adding two rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in just 19 minutes.

He isn't lighting up the box score in 21.1 minutes per game, but credit to Mills for his effective field goal percentage of 72.9 -- that's higher than Stephen Curry. Mills obviously won't keep this up and he's not worth owning in most leagues, but keep him in mind when Tony Parker starts to wear down.
Nov 8 - 4:00 AM

Patty Mills (rest) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

He is simply getting the night off and there is no injury to report. Mills will be extremely valuable to the Spurs' second unit this season and would be an interesting fantasy option if Tony Parker goes down.
Oct 20 - 8:11 PM

Patty Mills started in place of Tony Parker (sore ankle) on Sunday vs. the Pistons and scored just eight points on 2-of-10 shooting.

Mills also recorded two assists, two steals and 3-pointer, but he obviously wasn't great. Mills was disappointing last season because it took him a while to get over his shoulder injury, but he should find his touch soon. Mills will be an interesting player to watch if Parker goes down this season.
Oct 18 - 7:22 PM

Patty Mills is happy about his growing role with the Spurs.

"The role I have now with the Spurs has grown and not just by my teammates but the whole organization and I'm realizing it now where I don't think I did before," Mills said. With Tony Parker no longer capable of playing the role he once did and Cory Joseph having departed to the Raptors in free agency, Mills' importance will grow to the Spurs and fantasy owners for the 2015-16 season.
Sep 14 - 9:09 AM

Patty Mills will play for Australia in the Oceania Championship series with New Zealand.

The injury to Dante Exum (knee) made the move happen. "My shoulder injury last year meant that I had to continue intensive rehab and quality training over the past few months," Mills said. "I’ve done that and will be ready for the Oceania Championships." He could be in line for more minutes next season with the Spurs somewhat thin in their backcourt.
Aug 10 - 8:38 PM

Patty Mills came to life late in Wednesday's overtime win over the Clippers with 18 points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes.

He swished two clutch free throws with eight seconds left to get this game to OT. Tony Parker is dealing with a litany of injuries, including some Achilles tightness from tonight. If Parker is out, Mills may start because of the Spurs having a tighter playoff rotation. Even if he doesn't, he'll have much more fantasy value than Cory Joseph.
Apr 23 - 2:01 AM

Patty Mills hit all four of his shots on Friday, including three 3-pointers, and finished with 14 points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 11 minutes off the bench.

This is the first time we've blurbed Mills since January 17 and the Spurs most certainly lament that fact. They've been trying to get him going for some time and it's possible this encourages them to give him more minutes, but that's as far as we can go when talking about any potential value.
Apr 11 - 1:33 AM

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.
Jan 13 - 9:42 PM

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.
