Darius Miller: Let go by Oklahoma City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Thunder waived Miller (groin) on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Miller appeared in 18 games for the Thunder this season, averaging 4.1 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 10.9 minutes per game. The 31-year-old has recently been hampered by a groin injury, which has kept him sidelined for the last two games.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Out vs. Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (groin) is out for Wednesday's matchup against the Hornets, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

Miller joins an extensive Thunder injury list, leaving the team with just nine players available for Wednesday's game. With Miller out, Svi Mykhailiuk and Kenrich Williams should be in line for more minutes.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Questionable vs. Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Hornets due to a strained left groin.

The Thunder already have six players out, so Miller's absence would continue to complicate the rotation. If he ends up shelved, more minutes could be available for Svi Mykhailiuk and Kenrich Williams.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Doesn't play in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller did not play during Monday's win over Minnesota.

The forward was absent for a third straight matchup as he continues to remain on the fringes of the regular rotation. Miller has totaled 14 points and six assists over his past two appearances (March 14 and March 16).

Thunder's Darius Miller: Plays season-high 20 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller registered 11 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Thunder's 128-122 win over the Grizzlies.

The Thunder were without the eight players Sunday, so Miller went from out of the rotation to playing his most minutes of the season. Considering Miller hadn't even played in any of Oklahoma City's previous 10 games, he'll likely be the first player to drop out of the rotation as the Thunder get healthier. Oklahoma City will at the very least get Al Horford back in Tuesday's game against the Bulls, as he was merely resting Sunday in the second half of a back-to-back set.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game at Dallas.

Miller missed Sunday's game against Denver due to an illness, but he should be back to availability Wednesday night. The veteran wing was a DNP-CD in the five previous games, however, so it's unlikely that he'll make much of an impact.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Out due to stomach illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is out for Saturday's game against the Nuggets due to a stomach illness.

Miller's role has been minimal this season. His absence won't affect the team's rotation.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Miller missed the entire preseason while recovering from a torn Achilles, but it looks as though he'll be an option off the bench Wednesday. Miller suffered the injury back in August of 2019.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Bulls, Steve McGehee of News 9 Oklahoma City reports.

Miller will continue to recover from his Achilles injury as he will remain sidelined for the duration of the preseason for Oklahoma City. Miller said earlier in the month that he believed he would be ready for the start of the regular season, which is Dec. 23 for the Thunder.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Out for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) will not play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Spurs, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

Miller joins an extensive list of Thunder players not playing in the preseason opener. OKC will be extremely thin Saturday, though Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is still set to play.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Thinks he'll be ready for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) anticipates being ready for the start of the season, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

The 30-year-old missed all of last season as a member of the Pelicans while recovering from a torn Achilles. He was traded to the rebuilding Thunder during the offseason. He probably won't have a huge role on the team, as OKC's priority will likely be developing young talent.

Thunder's Darius Miller: Sent to Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (Achilles) has been traded to the Thunder along with George Hill as part of an unspecified four-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

This qualifies as a big payday for Miller, as he had his $7 million option picked up to simply help make this deal work for salary cap purposes. The longest-tenured Pelican will now look to earn a role for himself on a young Oklahoma City squad.

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 ESPN.com 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 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.

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.
