Mills registered 12 points (5-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt), five assists and four rebounds across 33 minutes in the Spurs' 116-111 loss to the Clippers on Thursday. Mills served as the second-leading scorer off the bench behind Rudy Gay and snapped a three-game streak of single-digit point tallies in the process. The 30-year-old continues to enjoy a steady second-unit role that affords him minutes in the mid-20s at minimum on the majority of nights. Additionally, while his lines have traditionally been scoring-dependent, Mills has demonstrated an ability to up his contributions in other areas this season, as he's now averaging a career-high 3.4 rebounds while also dishing out 2.4 assists per contest.
Mills registered 16 points (6-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 32 minutes in the Spurs' 117-110 loss to the Magic on Sunday. The veteran was effective as usual off the bench, leading the second unit in scoring for the night. Mills' two best point totals of the season have come in the last pair of contests, as he's opened November averaging 15.5 points on 47.6 percent shooting, including 57.1 percent from three-point range. The 30-year-old's production will naturally have some ebb and flow to it due to how scoring-dependent it often is, but he certainly remains a consideration in deeper formats and as a cost-effective option in daily leagues.
Mills contributed 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT) -- including the go-ahead basket with 6.8 seconds remaining in overtime -- three assists and two rebounds across 31 minutes in the Spurs' 143-142 win over the Lakers on Monday. Mills deflated the Staples Center crowd with his clutch shot, which came in the wake of LeBron James missing two key free throws. The veteran sharpshooter is currently coming off the bench, although he could slide into the first unit at any point if young guard Bryn Forbes doesn't prove up to the task of a starting job. Forbes has been impressive thus far, but Mills is still seeing an average of 27.7 minutes in his second-unit role, keeping his fantasy prospects viable in deeper formats.
Mills scored 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding four assists, a rebound and a steal in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's preseason win over the Magic. With Danny Green joining Kawhi Leonard in Toronto and Dejounte Murray (knee) lost for the season, Mills could see an even bigger role on the Spurs' bench this year than he did in 2017-18, when the 30-year-old averaged a career-high 25.7 minutes a game. His fantasy value would still be limited to his contributions as a three-point shooter, however.
Mills had just four points, two rebounds, and two assists in 16 minutes during Sunday's 108-93 preseason loss to Houston. Mills was moved back to the bench Sunday and saw just 16 minutes of playing time. Perhaps the biggest news of the night was DeJounte Murray (knee) going down with a potentially serious knee injury. Should Murray be forced to miss time, Mills could be in line for a small bump in his minutes. However, owners should not be running to the waivers to grab him as he had shown before that he struggles to have standard league relevance even with 30 minutes per night.
