Mike Miller started Sunday's game despite his recent ankle injury, posting one rebound, four assists and zero points in just 16 minutes vs. Memphis.
The Grizzlies give up 8.5 threes per game to their opponents, which is the seventh-fewest in the NBA, but Miller's struggles were due more to Dion Waiters' catching fire off the bench. Miller isn't a fantasy asset in 12-team leagues, though his perimeter shooting gives him specialist appeal in deeper formats. Dec 21 - 7:10 PM

Date:

Mike Miller (ankle) will play Sunday vs. Memphis.

Miller was able to put up 21 points on 7-of-8 shooting during his last outing, but going up against a tough Memphis squad, it's unlikely he'll be able to repeat that production. Miller is a risky option in daily leagues.
Dec 21 - 3:11 PM

Mike Miller (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

If Miller is unavailable for Sunday, his minutes will be distributed to guys like Shawn Marion, Dion Waiters, Matthew Dellavedova, and Joe Harris. Marion and Waiters offer the most upside of the group, but none of these guys are a lock for production in an unfavorable matchup vs. Memphis. Stay tuned.

Mike Miller (ankle) was held out of practice on Saturday.

He tweaked it on Friday in what was his best game of the season. Miller will likely stay in the starting lineup, but he's very unlikely to be scoring in double-figures most nights. Fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach.
Dec 20 - 2:59 PM

Mike Miller (concussion) returned to action and hit 7-of-8 shots (all threes) in the Cavs' 95-91 win over the Nets on Friday, finishing with 21 points and two rebounds in 34 minutes.

Miller is capable of shooting explosions like these but at his age and with his injury history, along with the empty stat lines he's bound to produce, owners should make him do it again before moving the needle.
Dec 20 - 12:47 AM

Mike Miller will reportedly be inserted into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Nets, sending Shawn Marion to the bench.

This is an interesting move, and it'll be interesting to see how Miller's body holds up with the extended minutes. Miller is coming into this game with averages of 1.5 points and 2.1 rebounds over 12 minutes of action, so owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the injury-prone veteran.
Dec 19 - 12:18 PM

Mike Miller (concussion) will be activated for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

Miller will likely return to a reserve role off the bench, and he can't be considered a viable option in most leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Dec 19 - 11:33 AM

Mike Miller (neck) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. Atlanta.

He has been cleared of his concussion, but Miller is now dealing with stiffness in his neck and will sit this one out. Miller only averages 12.2 minutes per game, so his absence won't have an impact on Cleveland's rotation. Leave Miller on the wire.
Dec 17 - 5:27 PM

Mike Miller (concussion) will play on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Don't get too excited, as Miller is much more valuable to the Cavaliers in real life compared to fantasy leagues. Miller has only averaged 12.2 minutes per game this season, and unless you are in a deep league and desperate for 3-pointers, you should leave him on the waiver wire.
Dec 17 - 10:21 AM

Mike Miller (concussion) passed the NBA's concussion protocol and will be active for Wednesday's game.

This is excellent new for the Cavaliers, as Miller is one of the best pure shooters in the league. However, Miller plays limited minutes off of the bench and can be ignored outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.
Dec 16 - 7:43 PM

Mike Miller (concussion) practiced on Tuesday and head coach David Blatt is hopeful that he'll be able to play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

Miller still hasn't been cleared by doctors, but has reportedly ramped up his practice sessions as of late. We'll update Miller's status prior to Wednesday's game, but he can be left on waiver wires in standard fantasy leagues.
Dec 16 - 1:58 PM

Mike Miller (concussion) is hopeful to play on Wednesday.

He is going to go through a practice on Tuesday to complete his concussion protocol. With Miller out tonight, Shawn Marion and Matthew Dellavedova should pick up a few extra minutes.
Dec 15 - 5:53 PM

Mike Miller (head) is in the fourth stage of the NBA's concussion protocol.

There are five total stages. "Tomorrow we’ll evaluate his response to that and where to go from there," David Blatt said. "We’re staying true to the process." Miller will not play on Monday, but he could return as soon as Wednesday.

Mike Miller (concussion) is out for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

He was able to do a little in practice on Sunday but is still not cleared for game action. There is a chance he could be available for Wednesday's game, but there is no reason for standard league owners to look his way.
Dec 14 - 1:17 PM

Mike Miller (concussion) was seen practicing on Sunday.

He is still not expected to be cleared until Monday, but it is good to see him in the final stages of the concussion protocol. Unless you are a deep league owner in desperate need of 3-pointers, you can leave him on the wire.
