Top Brandon Miller News

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Probable for Sunday

    Miller (back) is probable for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

    Miller was initially probable for Friday's game versus the 76ers before the Hornets decided to ultimately hold him out. Despite the probable tag, fantasy managers will want to double check to make sure he gets the green light to suit up.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Ruled out against Philadelphia

    Miller (back) won't play in Friday's game versus the 76ers, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Miller has been downgraded from questionable to out for Friday's game versus the 76ers due to a lower back injury. However, the rookie forward's injury isn't expected to sideline him long-term. Seth Curry will start in Miller's absence, while the latter's next chance to suit up is Sunday's matchup in Toronto.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Downgraded to questionable

    Miller (back) is now listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the 76ers.

    Miller's late addition to the injury report due to a low back injury and being subsequently downgraded to questionable is a bad sign of his availability Friday. If the rookie forward is ruled out, Bryce McGowens will likely receive increased playing time.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Late addition to injury report

    Miller is listed as probable for Friday's game versus the 76ers due to a low back injury.

    Despite being a late addition to the injury report with a low back issue, Miller is still expected to suit up against Philadelphia. The rookie forward shot 37.4 percent on 7.6 three-point attempts per contest across his 13 appearances in February.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Leading scorer in Thursday's loss

    Miller totaled a team-high 21 points (8-21 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in 40 minutes during Thursday's 111-99 loss to Milwaukee.

    The rookie forward continues to impress. Miller has scored in double digits in 16 straight games, averaging 20.6 points, 4.3 boards, 2.7 threes, 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals over that stretch on a depleted Hornets roster. That surge has come while LaMelo Ball (ankle) has been sidelined, but even though the fourth-year guard appears to be closing in on his return, that doesn't mean Miller's role is guaranteed to shrink.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Scores 14 points with 14 shots

    Miller had 14 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 123-85 loss to the Bucks.

    Miller has been struggling a bit from the field in recent weeks, though that was somewhat to be expected since he's a rookie who's enduring a huge workload on offense in a rebuilding team. Miller is averaging 16.8 points but shooting just 39.5 percent from the field over his last five contests.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Busy on defense Thursday

    Miller had 16 points (6-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, five assists and four steals over 38 minutes during Thursday's 115-107 victory over Utah.

    The rookie forward tied his season high in steals while setting a new season best in assists. Miller has caught fire over that last month, scoring in double digits in 12 straight games and averaging 22.2 points, 4.3 boards, 3.0 threes, 2.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks as he begins to live up to his billing as the second overall pick in the 2023 Draft.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Extends impressive scoring run

    Miller had 26 points (8-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal across 36 minutes during Wednesday's 122-99 win over the Hawks.

    Miller needed a few weeks to adjust to the intensity of the NBA, but there's no question the second overall pick of the 2023 NBA Draft is going through his most productive stretch of the campaign. He has scored in double digits in 11 outings in a row, a span in which he's averaging 22.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 34.8 minutes per contest.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Struggles to find shot Friday

    Miller produced 16 points (6-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 29 minutes during Friday's 120-84 loss to the Bucks.

    Miler tied for the team lead with 16 points, but he needed 18 shots to accumulate that total and went just 1-for-6 from three-point range. It's certainly a positive for the rookie's fantasy managers that he's increasingly becoming a central part of Charlotte's offense, though Miller is likely to have semi-frequent poor shooting performances given his 43.9 percent field-goal rate on the season. Still, he's worked his way up to being nearly a must-roster player in fantasy with his recent play -- coming into Friday, Miller was averaging 23.3 points on 49.3 percent shooting along with 4.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 3.2 triples and 1.3 steals over his previous 12 contests.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Another strong display

    Miller provided 20 points (9-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals in 41 minutes during Wednesday's 123-117 loss to Toronto.

    Miller is going through his best stretch of the season and has emerged as one of Charlotte's most reliable offensive weapons, especially with LaMelo Ball (ankle) sidelined and the likes of Gordon Hayward and Terry Rozier no longer with the team. The rookie out of Alabama has reached the 20-point mark in six games in a row, averaging 27.7 points and shooting 49.2 percent from the field in that span.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Stays hot in Monday's loss

    Miller recorded 33 points (13-25 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and four steals over 33 minutes during Monday's 124-118 loss to the Lakers.

    The second overall pick in the 2023 Draft topped 30 points for the second straight game and drained five three-pointers for the third straight contest. Miller has topped 20 points in nine of the last 11 games, averaging 23.6 points, 4.5 boards, 3.3 threes, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals over that stretch while shooting 40.9 percent from long distance. The 21-year-old forward's usage figures to remain sky-high until a Hornets roster that's currently missing LaMelo Ball (ankle), Gordon Hayward (calf) and Mark Williams (back) gets healthier.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Career-best effort Sunday

    Miller registered 35 points (10-25 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 10-12 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 38 minutes during Sunday's 115-99 loss to Indiana.

    The rookie set a new career scoring high to lead a top-heavy Hornets roster -- two of Miller's teammates delivered 19-plus points, but the rest of the squad combined for a total of 23. Miller broke out in January and shows no signs of slowing down, scoring more than 20 points in eight of the last 10 games and averaging 22.7 points, 4.6 boards, 3.1 threes, 2.7 assists and 0.9 steals over that stretch while shooting 40.3 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Does it all Friday

    Miller notched 28 points (11-19 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three steals across 32 minutes during Friday's 126-106 loss to the Thunder.

    Miller continues to pour in points, notching his 13th 20-point game of the season. His defensive contributions are a cherry on top, although his block rate grades in the 74th percentile among all wings this season. Miller's ability to score from anywhere on the court makes his future extremely bright.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Hits for 21 in Wednesday's loss

    Miller supplied 21 points (8-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, three assists and one steal over 38 minutes during Wednesday's 117-110 loss to the Bulls.

    The second overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft continues to catch fire. Miller has topped 20 points in six of the last eight games, averaging 20.5 points, 4.5 boards, 2.8 assists and 2.6 threes over that stretch. The eventual return of Gordon Heyward (calf) could cut into the rookie's usage, but Miller may also have established himself as one of the top options in the Hornets' offense by then.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Matches career-high 29 points

    Miller logged 29 points (11-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one block across 39 minutes during Monday's 113-92 loss to New York.

    Miller scored at least 20 points for the fifth time in his past seven outings, matching his career-high with 29 points. The rookie has flashed his offensive upside recently, establishing himself as a must-roster fantasy asset. While this performance did come without LaMelo Ball (ankle) in the lineup, the Hornets would be wise to continue rolling with Miller as a primary offensive option, given the draft stock they invested in him.
