    Darius Miller (Achilles) will not be joining the Pelicans in Orlando for the restart of the 2019-20 season as he continues his rehabilitation after undergoing right Achilles surgery.

    Miller's season is over now that there's official confirmation that he will not be playing. That said, he was always just a marginal play, even if he was healthy, given the team's depth on the wings.

    Darius Miller is unsure if he will be able to play in Orlando, as he continues to recover from a torn a ruptured right Achillies.

    Due to the lockdown, Miller has been unable to participate in any live-action, or else he would have played in 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 by now. At this point, it would be surprising for the Pelicans to risk his health by pushing for him to participate in the eight-game regular season.

    The NBA has awarded the Pelicans the $3.625M Disabled Player Exception for Darius Miller on Tuesday after applying last week.

    Miller tore his Achilles earlier in the offseason and is going to miss at least the next year of action as he recovers. Kenrich Williams and Nicolo Melli stand to see a few more minutes per game without Miller.

    The Pelicans have applied for a disabled player exception worth $3.625 million, after losing forward Darius Miller for the season with an Achilles injury.

    Miller became a reliable perimeter threat for the Pelicans last year averaging career-highs in points (8.2) and assists (2.5) in 69 games. He then signed a two-year deal worth $14 million early in the summer. Without Miller, the Pelicans will likely give more minutes to Kenrich Williams and Nicolo Melli.

    Darius Miller underwent surgery for a ruptured right Achilles on Thursday.

    Miller signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans this offseason but is now likely to spend all of this upcoming season on the shelf. It opens the door for New Orleans' other power forward options to earn more minutes, which will benefit players like Kenrich Williams and Nicolo Melli.

    The Pelicans have officially re-signed Darius Miller to a two-year deal.

    Miller will be playing behind a plethora of young assets at the Pelicans' disposal. Given that the team has entered a full-blown youth movement, it is unlikely that he will earn enough meaningful minutes to make a splash in fantasy in 2019-20.

    Darius Miller has agreed to a two-year, $14.25M deal to stay with the Pelicans, with the second-year being non-guaranteed.

    Miller is a 3-point specialist and he will be supporting J.J. Redick as a floor-spacer next year. The Pelicans are making sure to surround their team with quality veterans and Miller will continue to provide veteran leadership for a young group of players.

    Darius Miller (left adductor strain) showed some signs of improvement (assists and steals) but also some decline (field goal and free throw percentages) this season on his way to a top-200 overall finish.

    Miller continued to function as a three-point streamer with 1.9 threes per game in his 69 games. However, threes are becoming so much more common that two per game isn’t all that valuable anymore. Miller finished in the 220-235 range on a per-game basis this season. At age 29, it’s not a wise play to bet on much more from him next season.

    Darius Miller (left adductor strain) is out vs. the Suns on Friday.

    Fantasy owners can move on as Miller is likely not returning this season. Kenrich Williams, Stanley Johnson and Solomon Hill will continue to see extra minutes through the rest of the season.

    Darius Miller (left adductor strain) is out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    No surprise here as Alvin Gentry recently conceded that Miller is likely out for the rest of the season. Kenrich Williams, Stanley Johnson and Solomon Hill will continue to see extra minutes through the rest of the season. None of the above are very appealing at the moment.

    Alvin Gentry conceded that Darius Miller (left adductor strain) is likely out for the rest of the season.

    Miller is dealing with a Grade 1 strain and will miss 1-to-2 weeks of action, which would've given him maybe one or two games at the end of the year anyway. Kenrich Williams and Stanley Johnson will get a little more room to operate, though there isn't a ton here for fantasy purposes.
