Miller (coach's decision) didn't play in Tuesday's 95-91 win over the Thunder in Game 5 of the series. Miller saw 11 minutes off the bench in the Spurs' blowout win in Game 1, but he's failed to see any court time in the subsequent four games. Coach Gregg Popovich seems content to utilize only Tony Parker and Patty Mills as his point guards during more competitive contests throughout the postseason.
Miller will be on the inactive list for Sunday's game against Memphis, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports. Miller is locked in as the third string point guard for the Spurs. If he is placed back on the active list at any point in the playoffs he will see a limited role, barring an injury.
Miller will start in Wednesday's matchup with the Mavericks, Jeff McDonald of San Antonio Express-News reports. Miller is drawing the start due to Tony Parker being rested in advance of the playoffs. He'll likely see a minutes increase before returning to the bench when the playoffs begin.
Miller will draw the rare start in Friday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports. The Spurs are playing the back end of a double-header, and are resting a majority of their rotational players. It is somewhat surprising that Miller is grabbing the start over Patty Mills, but he will indeed play the point out of the gate. Miller has averaged 10.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in two starts for the Spurs this season.
Miller will draw the start in Monday's matchup with the Spurs, Spurs beat writer Tom Orsborn reports. With Tony Parker rested for a second consecutive game Miller will draw the start for the Spurs. Patty Mills drew the start for Parker Saturday, but the Spurs will opt for Miller Monday. Miller started one other game for the Spurs on Mar. 8, and posted 13 points, five assists, two rebounds, one steal, and one triple in 25 minutes.
