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 ESPN.com.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Miller (ankle) is doubtful for Friday's matchup against the Pacers.
Miller is nursing an ankle injury, which will be evaluated Friday, and it's doubtful he'll be deemed able to take the court. In his absence, E'Twaun Moore and Stanley Johnson could see more run.
Miller is nursing an ankle injury and will be re-evaluated on Friday, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
As of now, it's unclear when Miller suffered the ankle injury or how serious it is, but it looks like the team will provide an update at some point Friday.

Miller put up eight points (3-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five assists, four rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes Thursday in the Pelicans' 131-122 win over the Thunder.
After a one-game benching, Miller re-entered the starting five Thursday with Jahlil Okafor heading back to the second unit. While the forward was able to pick up some playing time with the move to the starting five, he was largely an afterthought during his time on the court, as evidenced by his underwhelming 8.2 percent usage rate. After a stretch of seven consecutive double-digit scoring performances from Jan. 24 to Feb. 6, Miller has now been held under 10 points in four straight contests. That looks to be the new norm for Miller now that the Pelicans have gotten several key players back from injury in the past week and a half.
Miller is starting Thursday against the Thunder, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
Miller moved to the bench for Tuesday's clash with Orlando, but he'll rejoin the starting lineup for his team's final game before the All-Star break. E'Twaun Moore will shift back to the bench as a result. Miller is averaging 11.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists over his previous seven starts.
