Miller (hip) will not play Tuesday against Golden State. Miller will miss a fifth straight game to end the season, but his strained left hip shouldn't cost him much time in the offseason.
Miller (hip) won't play Sunday against the Kings. Miller will miss his fourth-straight game due to a left hip strain Sunday. Although he'll likely be listed as day-to-day for Tuesday's tilt with the Warriors, it seems overwhelmingly likely that Miller's done for the season.
Miller has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 left adductor strain and will be out 1-2 weeks, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. There's a strong chance Miller will be sidelined for the remainder of the season. If that's the case, he will have played 69 games, seeing 25.5 minutes and racking up a career-high 8.2 points per contest.
Miller won't return to Thursday's game against Sacramento due to a left thigh strain, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports. Miller scored six points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and collected a rebound along with an assist over 16 minutes prior to suffering the injury. It remains to be seen whether he'll miss extended time due to the issue, but Stanley Johnson and Solomon Hill could be asked to step up off the bench until Miller returns to health.
Miller produced 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block over 33 minutes in the Pelicans' loss to the Suns on Saturday. Miller totaled his most points and most minutes played since Feb. 4, producing a solid stat line in Saturday's loss. He may have taken on a larger role with Jrue Holiday (abdominal) out and Anthony Davis playing a much smaller role, but Miller can't be counted on for games like this on a regular basis.
