Pelicans' Darius Miller: Officially out for restart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) will not play for the Pelicans when the season resumes in Orlando, Andrew Lopez of ESPN reports.

There was initially some hope that Miller would be able to return from his torn Achilles tendon, but he'll play it safe and be held out when the season resumes. Miller suffered the injury in late-August of 2019 and was initially given a seven-to-eight-month timetable. As of last week, Miller was able to go through on-court work, but he hadn't had a chance to play 3-on-3 or 5-on-5.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Might not be ready for Orlando
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) may not be healthy enough to play in Orlando during the eight-game regular season, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

Miller hasn't had an opportunity to test his Achilles out 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 due the to pandemic restrictions. Guillory "doubts we'll see [Miller] playing if he can't ramp up his activity really quickly." If Miller does take the court, it will be a season debut. His presence would add an extra floor spacer, as Miller hits 1.9 threes in 25.5 minutes per game at 36.5 percent.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Return status 'up in the air'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller's (Achilles) status is "up in the air" for the resumption of the NBA season in Orlando, Andrew Lopez of reports.

Miller tore his Achilles during an offseason workout and hasn't played this season. However, with an initial recovery timetable set for August, it seems within the realm of possibility that he could play in the Pelicans' upcoming games. Lopez notes that more information should be available once the team goes through pre-bubble training camp.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Remains in early stages of rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller has been limited to jogging on an anti-gravity treadmill and taking part in light shooting on the court since undergoing surgery in late August to repair a ruptured right Achilles' tendon, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

Coming off a strong season in a reserve role for the Pelicans in 2018-19, Miller was rewarded with a two-year, $14.25 million contract this summer. The first year of that deal will go down as a lost one, as Miller was handed a 7-to-8-month recovery timeline after he sustained the injury in an offseason workout in New Orleans. While that timetable theoretically gives Miller a shot at being ready to play at the tail end of the regular season or during a potential postseason run, the Pelicans already essentially ruled him out from returning at any point when they applied for a disabled player exception back in September, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. Miller shouldn't face any restrictions once training camp arrives next fall, but as a 30-year-old attempting to make it back from one of the most devastating injuries for pro athletes, he may struggle to regain his prior form.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Suffers torn Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller underwent surgery Thursday to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The forward is expected to be sidelined for 7-to-8 months, according to Malika Andrews of

Miller presumably suffered the injury during a recent workout. Given the nature of Achilles tears, there's a fair chance that Miller misses the entire 2019-20 campaign. The injury opens up more time on the wing for the likes of Brandon Ingram, Nicolo Melli and Josh Hart.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: To sign with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller will sign a two-year, $14.25 million contract with the Pelicans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

While New Orleans succeeded in bringing back a key three-and-D wing, the salary figure is a bit higher than expected. Still, Miller adds even more depth to what's one of the more well-rounded rosters in the NBA heading into next season. In 2018-19, Miller appeared in 69 games and contributed 8.2 points, 2.1 assists, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 made threes (36.5% 3PT) per game.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Out 1-to-2 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Ruled out for second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Solid stat line in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Career-high seven dimes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller amassed 10 points (3-9 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, and three rebounds in 29 minutes during Sunday's 128-116 loss to the Hawks.

Miller finished with a career high assist total while earning the fifth-most minutes on the team. He has scored exactly 10 points in three of the last five games, with the other two being single-digit efforts. Miller remains a decent option in deeper leagues if you're desperate for three-point shooting, otherwise he has little value.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Fares well in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) generated 11 points (3-9 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Pelicans' 125-119 win over the Lakers.

Miller turned in a credible showing in his return from a three-game absence due to a sprained right ankle, filling out each of the five main statistical categories. The 25 minutes should be relatively sustainable for Miller now that he's healthy again, but his low usage rate puts a cap on his overall fantasy upside.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Set to return vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) will return for Wednesday night's game against the Lakers, Pelicans' studio host Daniel Sallerson reports.

Miller sat out the last three games with an ankle injury, but in the words of coach Alvin Gentry, the wing will "give it a go" Wednesday. Miller had been a regular starter before the injury, but it's unclear if he'll come off the bench or replace one of Kenrich Williams or Julius Randle in the starting five.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Should return vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against Los Angeles.

Miller has missed three consecutive matchups while nursing a right ankle sprain, but he's expected to return to action Wednesday night. He'd been held to nine or fewer points in each of his previous four contests prior to suffering the injury, so he'll aim to get back on track against the Lakers, who've struggled mightily on defense of late.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) will not play Monday against the Sixers.

Miller will miss a third straight game with a sprained right ankle, so expect Stanley Johnson to again pick up increased minutes on the wing.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 76ers.

Miller has missed the past two games with a sprained right ankle. If he is forced to miss another game, E'Twaun Moore and Stanley Johnson could draw a start and see an increased role. More information on Miller's status should come out following the team's shootaround on Monday.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Lakers, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

As expected, Miller won't play Saturday, although he has a chance to return to action on Monday against Philadelphia. The fifth-year forward's been dealing with a right ankle sprain which kept him out of Friday's game against Indiana. Look for Stanley Johnson, Frank Jackson and Solomon Hill to see minor increases in run until Miller returns.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Doubtful Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's matchup against the Lakers.

Miller will probably miss a second straight game Saturday, as he's dealing with a sprained right ankle. His presumed absence opens up more playing time for the likes of Stanley Johnson, Frank Jackson and Solomon Hill.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Will not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

As expected after being listed as doubtful, Miller will be sidelined for the first game out of the All-Star break. It remains unclear how Miller suffered the injury or how severe it is, but he should be considered day-to-day for now. E'Twaun Moore and Stanley Johnson should be in line for some extended minutes in Miller's absence Friday.
