The Wizards waived Miles (wrist) on Sunday, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Miles had already been ruled out for the season after undergoing left wrist surgery in early December, but the rebuilding Wizards had viewed the 32-year-old as a valuable veteran presence on a young roster. Even so, Washington couldn't afford to keep Miles on the roster due to the club's mounting health concerns, as six other players remain sidelined due to injuries. According to Bobby Marks of ESPN.com, Washington will still retain its $4.4 million Disabled Player Exception that had been awarded after Miles was ruled out for the season. The Wizards will convert Anzejs Pasecniks' two-way deal into a standard contract, allowing him to take Miles' spot on the 15-man roster.
The Wizards applied for a disabled player exception for Miles (wrist) on Monday, indicating they anticipate the swingman to miss the remainder of the season, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The NBA can award exceptions to teams over the salary cap that require a replacement for a disabled player projected to miss the remainder of the season. It's unclear if the NBA will fulfill the Wizards' request, but in any case, Miles looks unlikely to return at time soon -- if at all -- in 2019-20. Miles underwent surgery on his left wrist last week and is considered out indefinitely.
Miles underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair ligament damage to his left wrist.
The Wizards haven't provided a timeline for Miles' recovery, but the swingman looks like he could be at risk of missing a good portion of what remains of the 2019-20 campaign. Miles' absence for the foreseeable future will free up more playing time on the wing for Jordan McRae, Isaac Bonga and Troy Brown.
Miles will see a specialist Monday for further examination on his left wrist injury, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Miles will seek out additional help in assessing what the next steps for his recovery will entail. According to Buckner, however, there's a possibility that the veteran guard will require surgery to repair damaged wrist ligaments, in which case he'd be held out for the remainder of the season. Look for the team to clarify Miles' timeline at some point after Monday's meeting. In the event he misses extended time, Jordan McRae and Troy Brown are expected to be the main beneficiaries from the added workload.
Miles (wrist) will be held out for the next two games at a minimum according to coach Scott Brooks.
Miles' injury appears to be relatively severe as he's been preemptively ruled out until next Tuesday at the bare minimum. That said, until the team provides further details, it's difficult to anticipate how much time he'll end up missing in total. Look for Jordan McRae and Isaac Bonga to see expanded roles until Miles returns.
Miles has a ligament injury in his left wrist and was ruled out for Wednesday's game at Phoenix, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Miles apparently sustained the injury during Tuesday's game at Denver. The severity of the injury remains unclear, leaving the 32-year-old's status for Friday's game against the Lakers up in the air.
Miles amassed 21 points (6-10 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), an assist and a steal in 20 minutes in Sunday's 125-121 loss to the Magic.
Miles caught fire from behind the arc on his way to a season-high 21 points. It was a good turnaround for the veteran guard, who had failed to score in two of his past three appearances. In his 15th season, Miles finds himself in a steady bench role for the Wizards and is providing 9.3 points, 1.8 triples and 1.7 rebounds in 17.3 minutes per contest.
Miles managed 12 points (3-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds, one assist, and one block in 19 minutes during Monday's 115-99 win over the Pistons.
Miles made his season debut following offseason foot surgery and immediately provided a jolt to the team's offense. He's unlikely to warrant much attention outside of deeper formats, but Miles has proven he can fill it up as a scorer even in limited minutes.
Miles (foot) will be available to play in Monday's game against Detroit, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Miles is set to make his season debut after responding well to Sunday's practice. He's been sidelined for the first few weeks of the season while finishing up his rehab from offseason foot surgery. Miles will have his minutes limited Monday night, per Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington.
Miles (foot) was able to complete a practice with the Wizards on Sunday, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Assuming his surgically repaired left foot responded well to the activity, Miles could be cleared to make his season debut Monday against the Pistons. The 32-year-old swingman is expected to occupy a rotation spot for the Wizards, but probably will struggle to maintain relevance in most fantasy formats unless he consistently clears 25 minutes per game.
Coach Scott Brooks said Miles (foot) is unlikely to play Saturday against the Timberwolves, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Miles will continue practicing with the G League Capital City Go-Go on Friday and appears to be nearing his return, but it's unlikely to come Saturday versus Minnesota. The 32-year-old was cleared to resume practicing in full Monday after offseason foot surgery, so he's likely still getting back up to full speed.
The Wizards assigned Miles (foot) to the G League's Capital City Go-Go on Wednesday for rehab purposes.
The Go-Go are still in the midst of training camp, so joining the affiliate will afford Miles more regular practices opportunities than would be possible with the Wizards. With that in mind, Miles won't necessarily see any game action with the Go-Go, as the Wizards will likely clear him for his season debut once he's had a chance to put in a few practices. Once healthy, Miles will likely vie for a reserve minutes behind Bradley Beal at shooting guard or even contend for the starting job at small forward, which remains unsettled.
Miles (foot) won't play Wednesday against Houston.
Miles was cleared to practice in full Monday, but the team will hold him out for at least one more contest while he continues to recover from offseason foot surgery. His next opportunity to return will come Saturday against the Timberwolves.
Miles (foot) practiced fully Monday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
It's a step in the right direction for the veteran who has missed the first two games of the season due to continued recovery from foot surgery. Coach Scott Brooks hinted at a possibility of Miles returning in time for Wednesday's matchup against Houston.
Miles (foot) will remain out Saturday against the Spurs.
It'll be the third straight absence for Miles to open the season as he works back from offseason surgery on his left foot. His next chance to play will arrive Monday versus the Knicks.
Miles (foot) won't play in Friday's game against the Thunder.
Miles will miss the first two matchups of the regular season, as he's still returning to health from offseason foot surgery. Isaac Bonga figures to be in line for another start with both Miles and Troy Brown (calf) still out.
Miles (foot) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
This isn't too surprising, as Miles is yet to return to practicing in full, but coach Scott Brooks did mention that Miles is close. With Troy Brown (calf) also out for the regular season opener, newcomer Isaac Bonga will get the start at small forward Wednesday.
Miles (foot) was limited at practice Monday, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
Miles has been sidelined for the entirety of the preseason while recovering from foot surgery, and his limited participation Monday implies that he's unlikely to be ready for the opener on Wednesday. Troy Brown was also limited Monday, so Washington could be without its top two options at small forward against the Mavericks.
Miles (foot) is out for Friday's preseason game against Philadelphia.
Miles is still rehabbing from left foot surgery, and a timetable for his return is unknown at this point.
