    Indiana Pacers

    Position
    G
     
    Jersey
    Name  C.J. Miles
    Born  3/18/1987
    Height  6-6
    Weight  231
    College  None
    1/25/2015 5:24:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles will not play on Sunday.
    Insight: Miles is dealing with a left groin strain. Rodney Stuckey will likely start with C.J. Watson also seeing more minutes.
     
    1/25/2015 10:23:00 AM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles is doubtful for Sunday's game against Orlando due to a strained left groin.
    Insight: Miles had been scoring well over the past few games, so this hurts fantasy owners. He averaged 20.5 ppg in his two previous outings and had eight points in seven minutes before the injury on Friday.
     
    1/19/2015 8:17:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles came off the bench and led the team with 23 points versus the Rockets.
    Insight: Miles shot 50 percent from the field, including 4-for-11 from the 3-point line. He also had six rebounds, five steals and two assists.
     
    1/13/2015 9:38:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles scored a team-high 22 points during Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves.
    Insight: He also had five rebounds, two 3-pointers, and one steal. Miles is still risky option, with owners never knowing the amount of playing time that he will receive.
     
    1/2/2015 10:55:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles came off the bench and led Indiana with 22 points.
    Insight: That should sound familiar because Miles came off the bench to lead Indiana with 25 points on New Year's Eve. He made six 3-pointers on Friday, and he is now 11-for-19 from the 3-point line over the last two games. But since Miles will not be able to maintain that pace, he is not worth picking up in most leagues, however, keep an eye on him.
     
    12/31/2014 5:32:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles came off the bench and led Indiana with 25 points.
    Insight: Miles made five 3-pointers in 10 attempts and shot 8-of-10 at the free-throw line. He also had seven rebounds, four assists, a block and steal in what was his best fantasy output in a week.
     
    12/29/2014 12:12:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles is dealing with a respiratory infection and missed Saturday's game.
    Insight: Miles has limted fantasy value even when healthy with a 10.9 ppg average and little contributions elsewhere.
     
    12/15/2014 4:14:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles left Friday's game with a bruised left knee, but is probable for Monday's game against the LA Lakers.
    Insight: Miles has limted fantasy value with just a 9.1 ppg average and little contributions elsewhere.
     
    12/12/2014 9:01:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles left Friday's game with a bruised left knee.
    Insight: Miles will not return. Solomon Hill will see more action.
     
    12/10/2014 9:50:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles scored a team-high 30 points during Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.
    Insight: He drained seven 3-pointers and also had four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and four turnovers. Miles is still not relevant option.
     
    11/22/2014 2:55:00 PM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles will not play on Saturday against the Suns due to a calf injury.
    Insight: Miles has played just four minutes in Indiana's last seven game because of his calf injury and a migraine. When he returns, he still isn't a great fantasy option for standard leagues.
     
    11/14/2014 10:40:00 AM
    Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles is probable for Friday's game against Denver.
    Insight: Miles has been dealing with a migraine which has caused him to miss the last four games. He's been much too inconsistent to use for fantasy owners, scoring 10 points one night and zero the next.
     
    10/31/2014 9:29:00 PM
    Description: Shooting guard C.J. Miles scored 13 points in Friday's loss to Memphis.
    Insight: He chipped in four assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block, and also had three turnovers. Miles will have some fantasy relevance, with the uncertainty on the Pacers' roster.
     
    10/23/2014 6:27:00 PM
    Description: Shooting guard C.J. Miles is expected to start the season at the small forward position.
    Insight: Coach Frank Vogel is "leaning toward" starting Miles at SF and Rodney Stuckey at SG. That's the best case scenario for fantasy owners as Miles will hit his fair share of 3-pointers. We would like to see him in the starting lineup. David West and Roy Hibbert owners would like to see Miles in the lineup too because Miles' 3-point shooting will open up offensive opportunities for West and Hibbert.
     
    7/2/2014 4:48:00 PM
    Description: Shooting guard C.J. Miles has agreed to a four-year, $18 million contract with the Pacers, according to cbssports.com.
    Insight: Miles averaged 19.3 minutes, 9.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.6 threes per game with the Cavaliers last season but missed the last seven weeks of the season due to an ankle injury. He could potentially start for Indiana if Lance Stephenson departs in free agency.
     
    4/16/2014 1:18:00 PM
    Description: Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (ankle) will not play Wednesday, according to Bob Finnan of the News-Herald.
    Insight: Miles will end up missing 26 of the final 27 games of the season with a sprained ankle. He started 34 of his 51 games and averaged 9.9 points and 1.6 threes per game.
     
    4/1/2014 5:11:00 PM
    Description: Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (ankle) will miss Wednesday's game against Orlando, according to Bob Finnan of news-herald.com.
    Insight: Miles missed 19 of the last 20 games and played just two minutes in the one game he was active during that span. Matthew Dellavedova has assumed his minutes.
     
    3/22/2014 4:57:00 PM
    Description: Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (ankle) will be held out of Saturday's game, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
    Insight: Miles returned from a 12-game absence on Tuesday but played just two minutes before sitting out Thursday. Fantasy owners can drop him.
     
    3/18/2014 6:40:00 PM
    Description: Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (ankle) is active Tuesday against the Heat.
    Insight: Miles (10.1 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.0 apg) missed the last 12 games with a sprained ankle. The Cavs need him back with Kyrie Irving and Luol Deng both out.
     
    3/16/2014 10:37:00 PM
    Description: Cavaliers shooting guard C.J. Miles (ankle) sat out for the 12th straight game Sunday against the Clippers.
    Insight: Most fantasy owners probably moved on from Miles (10.1 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.0 apg) by now. He last played on Feb. 19.
