Miller scored nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3Pt) in 13 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers. Miller hadn't played in the Nuggets' previous three games, but coach Mike Malone called on the small forward in the first half, and he was able to provide some excellent outside shooting.

Miller was unable to log any minutes in Denver's 103-102 win Wednesday against Milwaukee. Miller has been very quiet in the early stages of the 2015-16 season, playing only 5.0 minutes per game for Denver. His one bright spot this year was against the Lakers on Nov. 3rd where he scored nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3PM), however these are the only points Miller has scored this season.
