  • Miller was a late addition to the starting lineup at power forward for Monday's game against the Rockets, Will Guillory of NOLA.com reports. Anthony Davis (groin) is sitting out Monday's contest and Dante Cunningham was expected to start in his place. However, Cunningham is now dealing with a right knee injury of his own and is questionable to play, which allow Miller to make the last second switch to the starting lineup. Whether Cunningham plays off the bench or not, Miller should be in line for a hefty workload in the frontcourt sans Davis.

  • Miller supplied 15 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and four assists across 28 minutes in Friday's 114-108 loss to the Jazz. The fourth-year forward continues to trend upward, as Friday's production represented his fifth double-digit scoring effort in the last six games. Miller has been particularly proficient from long distance throughout the season, as he's shooting a career-best 49.4 percent from behind the arc on an average of four three-point attempts per contest. The minutes continue to be there for him as well, as Miller has seen no less than 21 in any of the last nine contests. WIth Anthony Davis (groin) potentially set to miss multiple games, Miller could seen even more of an uptick in opportunity in coming games.

  • Miller scored 10 points (3-10 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding nine rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench during Friday's 115-89 win over the Suns. He got some extra run in the fourth quarter with the Pelicans taking a 32-point lead into the final frame, and Miller responded with a season high in boards. The 27-year-old has now drained multiple three-pointers in 10 of the last 11 games and he's even been picking up his pace, averaging 24.6 minutes, 12.2 points, 3.3 boards, 3.2 threes and 2.0 assists over his last six contests. With Anthony Davis and Boogie Cousins demanding so much defensive attention, Miller should continue seeing plenty of open looks and a steady role on the second unit as long as he's converting them.

  • Miller managed 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-8 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 22 minutes during Monday's 106-105 win over the Hawks. Miller stepped up and hit several clutch buckets in the final quarter, and he finished with career highs in scoring, made field goals, and three-pointers made and attempted. The 27-year-old wing has appeared in all 14 games this season, though he has already gone scoreless in five contests. Still, Miller is filling in well at a position of need for the Pelicans, and all three of his double-digit scoring efforts in 2017-18 have come over the last five tilts.

  • Pelicans' Darius Miller: Scores five points
    By RotoWire Staff

    Miller tallied five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one rebound through 18 minutes during Friday's preseason game against Memphis. Miller signed a deal with the Pelicans this summer after playing last season in Europe. The 27-year-old averaged 19.3 minutes this preseason, but since New Orleans signed Tony Allen this offseason, he'll likely have a smaller role during the regular season.
