|Mike Miller remains inconsistent |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Grizzlies guard Mike Miller got hot from the bench and helped sink the Trail Blazers Tuesday, in a 109-99 win.
Miller played 25 minutes off the bench and scored 14 points, his third game in double figures in the last five. He shot 6 of 10 from the field and made just one 3-pointer, while grabbing just two rebounds and one steal in the win.
Miller remains a role player off the bench for the Grizzlies, so his production is inconsistent much of the time. He has not recorded consecutive double-digit scoring games since Feb. 22, and is averaging just 7.7 points per game in the month of March.

(2/5/14) Grizzlies forward Mike Miller played just eight minutes while dealing with illness Wednesday, missing his only shot attempt while recording one assist in his team's 110-96 loss to the Mavericks.
The Grizzlies don't play again until Saturday, making it likely Miller can regain his health and return to his normal level of playing time in his team's next game. He has averaged 6.6 points and 21.2 minutes over 48 games played.

|Mike Miller game-time call with illness |
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
(2/5/14) Grizzlies forward Mike Miller is feeling a bit under the weather and is considered a game-time decision for Wednesday night's game with Dallas.
Miller has averaged 6.8 points and 2.9 rebounds so far this year.
|The Heat prolonged the inevitable for as long as they could, but they finally had to pull the trigger as they used their amnesty provision to waive Mike Miller this offseason. He was a key contributor to two championship teams, but his overall contributions were not worth his hefty price tag for a team relatively stocked with wing options. For a team like Memphis, who signed Miller to a deal worth the veteran's minimum for the upcoming season, Miller should play a much larger role. Miller has not averaged double figures since 2009-10, and at 33 it might not be fair to expect him to become much more than a part-time player this season. But still, his ability to nail a high volume of shots from long range should prove valuable in Memphis, and could lead to a rebirth of his Fantasy relevance. In deeper, category-based Fantasy formats, Miller might be worth stashing at the end of your roster as a bounceback candidate.
