Pelicans' Darius Miller (foot) out 8-12 weeks

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Training camp is still a few weeks away and the Pelicans already have to deal with a injury.

The team announced Monday that forward Darius Miller will miss 8-12 weeks because of a stress fracture in his left foot. He had the injury surgically repaired.

Miller, a second-year small forward from Kentucky, appeared in 52 games as a rookie for the Pelicans last season and while he was likely slated third on the depth chart at the position, he was added depth off the bench.

At 8-12 weeks, the earliest Miller could return would be early November, with the chance of December if he requires the full amount of time.

Miller, 23, averaged 2.3 points and 0.8 assists last season.
