Miles played only six minutes in Sunday's 89-84 Game 7 loss to the Raptors, finishing with no points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and three rebounds. Miles saw his fewest minutes of the series in the decisive Game 7, as coach Frank Vogel opted to lean more heavily on his starting wings. Though he profiles as the Pacers' top three-point shooting off the bench, Miles never really made an impact in the series, averaging 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13 minutes while hitting just two of his 20 attempts from downtown.
Miles (shoulder) confirmed Thursday that he'll be ready for the start of the postseason, Pacers.com's Wheat Hotchkiss reports. Miles missed the last two games of the regular season with a sore shoulder, but it looks like the absences were just precautionary, and the wing will be available for Game 1 against the Raptors on Saturday. Miles averaged 16.0 points and 2.2 rebounds over his last five games after closing March with averages of only 8.7 points and 1.4 rebounds per game.
Miles (shoulder) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday. Miles will miss a second straight game with the shoulder issue, though the team is likely just exercising caution after clinching the No. 7 seed in the East on Tuesday night. With at least two more days of rest before the playoffs begin, Miles figures to be back when the Pacers begin postseason play either Saturday or Sunday.
Miles (shoulder) will not play against the Knicks on Tuesday. Miles has been nagged by a sore shoulder of late, and he'll play it safe Tuesday with the Pacers locked into a playoff spot. In Miles' absence, Solomon Hill and Glenn Robinson could both step into increased roles.
Miles is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks due to a sore right shoulder. The issue is not believed to be anything serious, but with a playoff spot locked up the Pacers could opt to hold Miles out as a precaution. Look for an update later in the day after Miles has an opportunity to test it out in warmups.
