Miles Plumlee (strained right quad) will be out for the next 2-3 weeks.
He likely suffered the injury on Oct. 1 and has been out since. The Hawks are very thin up front, but they've been able to play John Collins at the five to help out Dewayne Dedmon. Both Collins and Dedmon are worth drafting in most leagues. Oct 11 - 5:30 PM

Date:

Miles Plumlee (quad) will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Hawks.

Plumlee injured his quad on October 1 and hasn't seen the floor since. Chances are he'll be good to go by opening night, but he's not going to be an impact player in fantasy hoops this season.
Oct 9 - 6:35 PM

Miles Plumlee (quad) had been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Cavs.

Plumlee tweaked his quad during Sunday's preseason game, and he won't get back out there until he's clearly 100 percent. In terms of fantasy hoops, there's nothing to see here.
Oct 3 - 5:04 PM

Miles Plumlee (sore/stiff right quad) didn't return to Sunday's game.

Plumlee had a right knee debridement procedure in May, but this was reported specifically as a quad injury, so hopefully Atlanta was just playing it safe. Plumlee was arrested for marijuana possession in August, which could result in punishment from the league if he's convicted -- either way, he's not a fantasy asset.
Oct 1 - 8:49 PM

Miles Plumlee was arrested for marijuana possession in late-August.

Plumlee was arrested in Long Island and released on a $100 bail, and if convicted, he will face some sort of punishment from the league for violating their pot policy. The first violation results in a warning, the second a hefty fine, and the third triggers a mandatory five-game suspension.

Miles Plumlee has been traded to the Hawks.

The Hornets will also send Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick to Atlanta in exchange for Dwight Howard and the 31st pick. Plumlee has one of the worst contracts in the NBA with three years and about $40 million left on his deal, but he had to be included to make the numbers work -- Howard is owed $57 million over the next two seasons. Plumlee had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee back in May, but he's expected to be a full go for camp. With career averages of 5.1 points and 4.7 rebounds, expectations for him in Atlanta should be very low.
Jun 20 - 9:31 PM

Miles Plumlee underwent a successful arthroscopic "debridement" on his right knee on Tuesday.

Just when you thought his contract couldn't look any worse. Plumlee will have a timetable of 6-8 weeks, so he shouldn't be in danger of missing any time in 2017-18. He couldn't be any farther off the fantasy radar and will compete for the backup center role behind Cody Zeller.
May 2 - 11:20 PM

Miles Plumlee returned from a six-week absence on Wednesday, posting five points on 2-of-2 shooting with one rebound and two steals in 15 minutes.

Plumlee was cleared to play last Friday but coach Steve Clifford hasn't felt the need to use him. He was effective in his limited action tonight, but that was largely due to Cody Zeller's foul trouble, so it's unclear if he'll carve out a niche going forward. Don't expect any fantasy value.
Mar 29 - 11:54 PM

Miles Plumlee (calf) will be available to play on Friday against the Cavs.

Coach Steve Clifford said he might play in this game. In other words, Plumlee would probably only play if Frank Kaminsky or Cody Zeller are in foul trouble.
Mar 24 - 5:54 PM

Miles Plumlee (right calf strain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. Orlando.

Plumlee has not played since Feb. 13 and remains without a timetable for his return. He should be left on waivers in all leagues.
Mar 21 - 2:02 PM

Miles Plumlee (calf) sat out again on Wednesday.

Plumlee recently did some on-court activities, but his return date is still up in the air. Even once he's fully healthy, he's a dubious fantasy option with Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky dominating the frontcourt rotation.
Mar 15 - 10:13 PM

Miles Plumlee (strained calf) participated in on-court activities on Tuesday but is still without a timetable for his return.

Plumlee has not played in over a month. He should be left on waivers. Cody Zeller will continue to start at center, with Christian Wood backing him up.
Mar 14 - 12:18 PM

Miles Plumlee (calf) and Johnny O'Bryant (ankle) will not play Monday vs. the Bulls.

Neither of these guys are regular parts of the rotation in Charlotte, so their absence will have zero consequence in fantasy hoops.
Mar 12 - 2:36 PM

Miles Plumlee (calf) remains out for Friday against the Pelicans.

The Hornets will have to get a lot out of Cody Zeller today and should call on Christian Wood a lot after he cashed in during garbage time on Friday. It's still a little surprising the Hornets traded for Plumlee.
Mar 11 - 5:09 PM

Miles Plumlee (calf) is still out for Friday against the Magic.

He was ruled out for at least two weeks back on Feb. 22, so he's getting somewhat close to having a new target date. With Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) and Johnny O'Bryant (ankle) also out, we'll likely see some Christian Wood as a backup five. It would take a lot of guts to use Wood in DFS or in very deep leagues.
