Mike Miller had an extended workout after shootaround, which would suggest that he may be able to get into the rotation for Sunday's Game 3 in Cleveland.
Of the Cavs 12 playoff games thus far, Miller has only left the bench for three of them. He may step into a minimal role for Game 3, but he's extremely unlikely to show up in any meaningful way on the stat sheet. He's not a fantasy option. May 24 - 5:32 PM

Date:

Mike Miller will come off the bench on Wednesday for Game 2 against the Bulls, with Tristan Thompson set to move into the starting lineup.

Miller played just 16 minutes in a start during Game 1, but he produced just three points (a 3-pointer) on 1-of-2 shooting with five boards and one block. Miller didn't play at all in the previous series against Boston, so it will be interesting to see if he is still part of the rotation moving forward. J.R. Smith is suspended for one more game, so Miller's best chance for minutes will likely be tonight.
May 6 - 9:19 AM

Mike Miller logged 16 minutes in Monday's Game 1 start, scoring three points on 1-of-2 shooting with five rebounds and one block.

David Blatt said that he was considering a lineup change after the Cavs' loss and Miller's position would be a primary place to look. Even in the best of situations there's not much for owners to look at here.
May 4 - 10:39 PM

Mike Miller is leaning toward picking up the $2.8 million player option for the 2015-16 season.

It's hard to see how Miller would turn it down for anything other than retirement. He's not going to make more than the veteran's minimum on the open market in free agency, and Miller has been an afterthought for the Cavs this season. Once again, he's enjoying the ride alongside LeBron.
Feb 23 - 9:30 AM

Mike Miller finished Tuesday's loss in Phoenix with only one rebound in eight minutes off the bench.

Miller had been a place-holder in the starting lineup for the past few weeks, averaging a mere 2.8 points on 28.6 percent shooting during the eight games LeBron James missed. The waiver wire is Miller's permanent home, especially with LBJ healthy and J.R. Smith stealing minutes on the wings.
Jan 13 - 11:50 PM

Mike Miller will be replaced in the starting lineup by LeBron James (knee, back) on Tuesday.

Coach David Blatt opted to keep J.R. Smith in the starting lineup instead and it will be interesting to see if the move sticks. Regardless, Miller is too injury-prone to be trusted and his limited role off the bench certainly isn't going to help him. Miller can be dropped in most leagues.
Jan 13 - 8:26 PM

Mike Miller earned another start for the Cavs but finished scoreless with only two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 19 minutes vs. the Hawks.

Injury woes have thrust Miller into a big role over the past four games, averaging 27 minutes, but he's only worth a look if you're desperate for 3-point shooting.

Mike Miller started Tuesday's game but was invisible, going scoreless with one assist in a mere eight minutes of action.

The veteran sharp-shooter picked up a few quick fouls and never got on track, ceding the court to Dion Waiters (27 minutes) and Shawn Marion (26 minutes). Miller's occasional 3-point barrages are a nice surprise for anyone deploying him in ultra-deep leagues, but he's irrelevant for most fantasy owners.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 10:54:00 PM

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.

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.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 03:11:00 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.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 02:44:00 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 02:59:00 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.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 12:47:00 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.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 12:18:00 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.
