Patty Mills had successful surgery on his torn right rotator cuff on Thursday.
He has no timetable to return, but Mills did get a three-year deal on Thursday to make him feel a little better. The Spurs should have him ready to go for the season and he'll continue to pick up a lot of the scoring slack on the second unit with Manu Ginobili. Jul 3 - 3:40 PM

The Spurs and Patty Mills (shoulder surgery) have agreed on a three-year deal, according to the San Antonio Express News.

He had an awesome postseason run and may have had a bigger role on another team, but the Spurs will keep him on their bench. Mills doesn't really start too often even when Tony Parker sits out because of Cory Joseph, but he's been a decent per-minute guy for fantasy production. He'll likely provide late-round value once he returns to action, but that might not be until February or March.

Free agent Patty Mills needs shoulder surgery and he's expected to miss at least seven months, including the first 3-4 months of the 2014-15 season.

Mills will soon have surgery to repair the rotator cuff in his right shoulder. He played through the pain during the season and playoffs, but will go under the knife in upcoming days. He'll still be a hot commodity in free agency, but not nearly as hot as he would have been were he entering the season healthy. According to multiple reports, the Spurs are still interested in signing him.

The Knicks are interested in unrestricted free agent Patty Mills, according to reports.

The Knicks are looking to use their mini mid-level exception to sign a free-agent starting point guard and Mills has emerged as a candidate after his strong showing in the NBA Finals. Mills averaged 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists this season and would reportedly be interested in playing in New York as he would be able to play starters minutes. "New York is definitely a city Mills would want to play in,'' a source said. "He has that personality.'' Mills could be an interesting fantasy options based on sheer minutes if he signs with the Knicks and could make for a solid later-round pick if this rumor becomes reality.

Patty Mills gave the Spurs a huge lift during Sunday's Finals-clinching victory, pouring in 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting with five 3-pointers and two assists in just 18 minutes off the bench.

Mills also showed a knack for flopping, drawing a few unjust offensive fouls against the Heat, but his outside shooting was a dagger in the second half. His minimum-salary contract expires this summer and he undoubtedly earned himself some cash with his playoff performance, complicating his decision to return with the Spurs or chase more money elsewhere.

Patty Mills spent a lot of time during the offseason in the gym working on his game, and as a result, he has become an important piece to the Spurs puzzle.

"When [Mills] came to camp this year all trim and very aggressive, very focused, he made us notice him," Gregg Popovich said. "Then as the games came and went and he played more and more minutes, I think he gained a confidence, and we gained a confidence in him to the point where sometimes he's out there, and I leave Tony [Parker] too long." Mills has been a pleasant surprise this season, and a championship this year would give a Hollywood ending to the documentary currently being made on the Australian born product.

Patty Mills scored an efficient 14 points in 16 minutes vs. the Heat on Thursday, adding one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers.

He scored just 20 points combined in the previous four games and just went Vinnie "Microwave" Johnson off the bench tonight. Mills has answered the call throughout the season and actually ranked 10th in the NBA for effective field goal percentage in the regular season, so this isn't a surprise. The Spurs' depth has been a tremendous advantage.
Jun 13 - 12:10 AM

Patty Mills will not play against the Rockets on Monday due to rest.

He's had a great season and this will be his first DNP. Mills has shot the ball extremely well from deep, making 42.5 percent from that range for 1.7 triples. He'll likely be back for Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 6:52 PM

Patty Mills caught fire against the Mavericks in the starting lineup on Thursday, scoring a game-high 26 points with two boards, six assists, two steals and six 3-pointers.

He's making 3-pointers like they're layups these days, shooting 17-of-27 (62.9 percent) over his last six games. Mills played a season-high 36 minutes tonight and the Spurs could ask Mills to get some extra run down the stretch. He looks like a must-own player in fantasy leagues in the last week.
Apr 11 - 12:58 AM

Patty Mills started ahead of Cory Joseph for the Spurs on Thursday.

Tony Parker (back) remains sidelined and Gregg Popovich decided to tweak his lineups at the last moment. Mills and Joseph typically split minutes in Parker's absence anyway, with Mills providing more fantasy upside, so this shouldn't have a dramatic impact on their values.
Apr 10 - 8:26 PM

With Tony Parker exiting Sunday's game early due to back spasms, Patty Mills (seven points, four assists) and Cory Joseph (eight points, five assists) each played 20 minutes off the bench.

Mills would likely start at PG if Parker can't play at Minnesota on Tuesday, and he has higher upside due to his scoring ability, but it's rarely a good idea to gamble on Gregg Popovich's rotations.
Apr 6 - 9:42 PM

Patty Mills has become an important guy off the bench for the Spurs, and coach Gregg Popovich cites Mills' weight loss in the offseason as the reason to why he's been given more minutes this season.

"He was a little fat a--," Popovich said, repeating what he has told Mills. "He had too much junk in the trunk." Mills has really stepped up for Popovich in games they have rested their stars, and anytime that happens, Mills makes for a great plug-and-play. The Spurs have a back-to-back set coming up on Thursday and Friday, so owners will want to keep an eye out for a potential "Poping" of Tony Parker.
Apr 6 - 9:57 AM

Patty Mills has played through a chronic right shoulder injury for the Spurs this season.

Mills wears kinesiology tape on his shoulder during games, and routinely receives treatment, and thus far he hasn't missed a game all season. His 10.1 points per game are a shade under his career high, and he's adding 1.6 threes, 1.8 assists and 0.9 steals as a reliable bench weapon for Gregg Popovich's squad.
Apr 5 - 12:03 PM

Patty Mills scored 21 points off the bench during Thursday's 106-94 loss to the Thunder, adding six boards, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers.

The Spurs had their 19-game winning streak snapped tonight and are now 0-4 against OKC on the season. Mills continues to step up when coach Gregg Popovich rests guys and tonight was no different with Manu Ginobili resting. He's a sneaky player to own in standard leagues for his output in triples.
Apr 3 - 11:48 PM

Patty Mills scored 15 points with three boards, three assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He always has a high usage rate in games which Tony Parker (Achilles) sits out and that didn't change tonight. Parker should be back in the lineup on Wednesday, so prospective fantasy owners of Mills shouldn't use this line to make any crucial lineup decisions.
