Jason Kidd said that he will look at his center rotations and see if he can give consistent minutes to Miles Plumlee, Zaza Pachulia, and John Henson.
A rotation involving all three centers would essentially cancel out the value of each player, and while Pachulia and Henson can be viewed as low-end centers in deep leagues, Plumlee can remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Mar 20 - 11:53 AM

Miles Plumlee did not leave Milwaukee's bench on Tuesday.

He logged 14 minutes on Saturday but Jason Kidd opted for a tighter frontcourt rotation tonight, using John Henson as the lone backup for Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia. Even deep-league owners should freely cut Plumlee at this point.
Mar 17 - 10:56 PM

Miles Plumlee logged 15 minutes in his Bucks debut, scoring four points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block off the bench.

Plumlee should earn a more stable role in Milwaukee than he had in Phoenix, but he's a dubious fantasy option with John Henson and Zaza Pachulia both healthy. Deep-league owners should give him a look for FG percentages, rebounds and blocks.
Feb 22 - 6:05 PM

Miles Plumlee is expected to play on Friday night against the Nuggets.

Essentially, he'll step into Larry Sanders' minutes. It'll be interesting to see if coach Jason Kidd plays Plumlee at power forward, which would help John Henson, Zaza Pachulia and Plumlee. The former Sun isn't a fantasy option in almost any league.
Feb 20 - 6:10 PM

The Bucks have reportedly acquired Miles Plumlee as part of Thursday's trade which also brought Michael Carter-Williams to Milwaukee.

Plumlee became expendable for the Suns once they acquired Brandan Wright to backup Alex Len, and he should carve out a reliable backup role in Milwaukee. He's a dubious source of fantasy value, however, as both John Henson and Zaza Pachulia will cut into his playing time and production.
Feb 19 - 3:15 PM

The Lakers and Knicks have expressed interest in acquiring Miles Plumlee.

With the addition of Brandan Wright, Plumlee has become an expendable asset for the Suns. From a fantasy perceptive, Plumlee would be in an ideal situation to produce if he lands in New York, and if he is traded there will be more minutes available for Wright in Phoenix. However, as long as he’s a member of the Suns, Plumlee belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

Miles Plumlee started Tuesday's game and racked up seven rebounds, two steals and four blocks vs. the Rockets, but he scored only five points in 17 minutes of action.

Alex Len (ankle, illness) will return after the All-Star break so this was likely Plumlee's last start for Phoenix. He could have done more but was limited by matchups, as the Rockets and Suns both went small in a fast-paced game that finished 127-118 in Houston's favor. It will take a trade to an ideal situation for Plumlee to emerge with reliable value in 12-team leagues.
Feb 10 - 11:26 PM

Miles Plumlee flirted with multiple season-highs on Sunday, notching four points, 12 rebounds, four blocks and one steal in 23 minutes vs. the Kings.

He hadn't blocked more than two shots since Jan. 2 and he hadn't grabbed double-digit rebounds since Nov. 19, so this was a wildly uncharacteristic game. Alex Len (ankle) is doubtful to play on Tuesday in the Suns' final game before the All-Star break, which gives Plumlee a brief window of opportunity, but he's a non-entity in most leagues while Len and Brandan Wright are available.
Feb 9 - 1:13 AM

Miles Plumlee started for injured Alex Len (ankle) in the Suns' 100-93 win over the Jazz on Friday, scoring six points on 3-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, two steals and one block in 26 minutes.

Len will likely be out through the All Star break and Plumlee will be worth a look for owners needing a big man in deeper leagues.
Feb 7 - 3:48 AM

Miles Plumlee will start against the Jazz on Friday.

Alex Len is out for tonight and could miss the next two games. Plumlee's fantasy value is not great and there's a reason why he lost his starting job. Expect him to split the minutes at center with Brandan Wright with a little more Markieff Morris at the five too.
Feb 6 - 7:31 PM

Miles Plumlee scored one point with four rebounds, two steals and one block in 17 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

He lost his starting job to Alex Len (ankle) earlier this season, but he might get it back with Len out. However, Plumlee was not putting up great value as the starter, so Brandan Wright's ceiling makes him the better grab. Owners in standard leagues can probably just see how this develops first.
Feb 6 - 1:03 AM

Miles Plumlee assumed a bigger role with Brandan Wright (heel) out on Sunday, coming off the bench for two points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 20 minutes.

The Suns are reportedly shopping Plumlee around the league and he could surface with value in an ideal scenario, but only deep-league owners should be monitoring him while Wright is day-to-day.
Jan 25 - 9:57 PM

The Suns are "actively shopping" backup PF/C Miles Plumlee, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Plumlee's role has evaporated with Brandan Wright in Phoenix, so it makes sense that the Suns would try to flip him for a rotation player or a draft pick. Plumlee has the potential for late-round value if he lucks into an ideal situation, but only deep-league owners should consider him as a speculative add.
Jan 18 - 7:21 PM

Miles Plumlee recorded only one rebound in three minutes off the bench on Tuesday, while Brandan Wright had five points and one rebound in 13 minutes.

Plumlee should be set adrift in all fantasy leagues now that B-Wright has usurped his backup role behind Alex Len. It would take an injury or trade for him to re-emerge on the standard-league radar.
Jan 14 - 12:06 AM

Miles Plumlee logged only 10 minutes vs. the Grizzlies during Sunday's road loss, finishing with one point and five rebounds.

He was scoreless in the Suns' past two games and his minutes have been trending down, so the arrival of Brandan Wright is a death-knell for his fantasy value. There's no longer any reason to own Plumlee while Alex Len and Wright are both healthy.
