Suns coach Jeff Hornacek suggested that Miles Plumlee "got over the hump" after a mid-season lull in his performance.
Plumlee's playing time and stats are down across the board since the All-Star break. He seems to have run out of gas in February and March, but a smaller role has rejuvenated him and through three games in April he's averaging 9.0 points (on 68.8 percent shooting) with 9.7 rebounds.

Date:

Miles Plumlee grabbed 16 rebounds in Friday's win against the Blazers, and also added six points, two assists and a steal in 25 minutes.

Plumlee has made some minor noise over the last month or so but it hasn't translated into any real value. He needs to make some big noise quickly or stay glued to the wire for the rest of the year.
Apr 5 - 1:33 AM

Miles Plumlee started vs. the Lakers on Sunday but he finished with only six points, two rebounds and four personal fouls in 11 minutes.

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek couldn't find the personnel to slow down Chris Kaman tonight. Plumlee wasn't getting the job done so the Suns briefly turned to Shavlik Randolph and Alex Len, before ultimately settling on a small-ball lineup which basically conceded the paint to Kaman. Plumlee's sketchy playing time and minimal offense make him a poor fantasy option.
Mar 31 - 12:28 AM

Miles Plumlee scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting with five rebounds, two steals and one block in 24 minutes on Friday.

Plumlee has slowly added value throughout the past month, but he's still producing at just a low-end level in 14-team leagues. It wouldn't be surprising if he continues to slowly improve, but he's only worth a look in 12-team leagues if you're desperate for big man stats.
Mar 22 - 2:49 AM

Miles Plumlee scored 10 points vs. the Magic on Wednesday with nine boards and two blocks in 20 minutes.

He snapped a four-game stretch of not cracking double-digit scoring, but the minutes were not there yet again. Over his last five, Plumlee averaged 7.2 points, 7.2 boards and 0.8 blocks in 20.2 minutes. While he's not "back" for owners in standard formats, he's showing signs of life in deeper leagues.
Mar 20 - 2:06 AM

Miles Plumlee moved to the bench to start the second half of Monday's game vs. the Nets, scoring three points with six boards, two assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes.

The Suns were down 13 points at halftime and needed to get some firepower in the scoring department, so coach Jeff Hornacek put Gerald Green in with the other four starters. Plumlee's minutes have really fallen in the past month, so he's not worth owning in the vast majority of leagues right now.
Mar 17 - 10:19 PM

Miles Plumlee did not return after being poked in the left eye in the fourth quarter of Friday's game.

The injury didn't look great and Plumlee was on the ground for a while before walked off the floor. He finished with five points, seven boards and one block in 21 minutes. Plumlee's fantasy value is already trending way down, so he's not worth owning in most formats. If he needs to miss time Alex Len would start and also wouldn't have much fantasy value.
Mar 14 - 9:53 PM

Miles Plumlee just missed a double-double in Wednesday's home loss to the Cavs, scoring nine points on 4-of-5 shooting with 10 rebounds and no steals or blocks in 29 minutes.

The lack of defensive stats keep this from being a pickup line, but it's possible his knee is getting better and if he has another semi-productive outing it could be time to give him a look.
Mar 13 - 1:26 AM

Miles Plumlee (knee) returned to action on Monday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting with nine rebounds and two blocks in 26 minutes.

If Plumlee's knee is getting better and that is indeed a signal that he's going to return to form then owners will want to be ready to move, but he's still a speculative play at best after a difficult month.
Mar 11 - 2:03 AM

Miles Plumlee (knee) will start at center on Monday against the Clippers.

Plumlee said that his knee felt sort of week during his return to action on Sunday, and it's possible that this is behind his slow decline over the past month or more. He's not a desirable fantasy option until he can turn the page on his struggles.
Mar 10 - 9:15 PM

Suns center Miles Plumlee said that his knee felt "kind of weak" during his return to action on Sunday.

He finished with two points and four rebounds in 10 minutes, and after the game he seemed to regret his decision to play. "I didn’t have the control or explosiveness," he said. "I was afraid I was about to hurt myself worse trying to play on it." He added a few more optimistic details but anyone relying on Plumlee in deep leagues should consider him questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Monday.
Mar 10 - 9:09 AM

Miles Plumlee (right knee sprain) played 10 minutes off the bench vs. Golden State, scoring two points and grabbing four rebounds.

Even before the injury his production had teetered toward fantasy irrelevance, and there's no reason to think he'll bounce back in a bench role with Alex Len starting and the Morris brothers playing at a high level.
Mar 9 - 11:42 PM

Miles Plumlee (sprained knee) will return to action in a bench role on Sunday.

Alex Len will start for the third straight game and it wouldn't be surprising to see Plumlee's minutes intentionally limited, to avoid any chance of a setback.
Mar 9 - 8:08 PM

Miles Plumlee (right knee sprain) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Thunder.

Plumlee is being given an extra game to heal, according to coach Jeff Hornacek, and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Alex Len. Plumlee has seen a precipitous dip in his play over the past month, so fantasy owners don't need to think twice before cutting him for a more productive player at this point.
Mar 6 - 1:11 PM

Miles Plumlee (right knee sprain) did not practice on Wednesday and is questionable to face the Thunder on Thursday.

After he was expected to play on Tuesday, Plumlee sat out against the Clippers. The team changed his diagnosis to a strain from soreness, so they might hold him out for his second straight game. The Suns started rookie Alex Len and gave Shavlik Randolph 14 minutes on Tuesday, but neither are fantasy options. Markieff Morris will likely see more minutes against Serge Ibaka and Steven Adams.
