C.J. Miles: Scores 17 points off bench
Miles tallied 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two steals, one rebound and one assist in 20 minutes during Friday's 123-115 loss to the Capital City Go-Go.
Miles was lights out from the field and led all bench scorers with 17 points in just 20 minutes of action. The 17-year veteran made an NBA appearance in late December for the first time since 2019, but he couldn't solidify a role with Boston during his 10-day contract due to a stint in COVID-19 protocols....

C.J. Miles: Won't be retained by Boston
Coach Ime Udoka said Friday that Miles won't be back on a second 10-day contract, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.
Miles made just one appearance -- playing two minutes and failing to record any counting stats -- during his stint with Boston. The veteran guard's return to the NBA was stymied with him landing in the league's health and safety protocols in the middle of his 10-day contract. The 34-year-old's next step is unclear, but there are plenty of open roster spots around the league as COVID-19 continues to decimate depth charts.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' C.J. Miles: Clears protocols
Miles cleared COVID-19 health and safety protocols Thursday.
Miles is not on the NBA's injury report anymore. But even if he becomes accessible, fantasy managers should not expect him to supply meaningful value. The Celtics still have primary shooting guards Jaylen Brown and Josh Richardson available despite the team's recent COVID-19 problems.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' C.J. Miles: Enters COVID-19 protocols
Miles entered health and safety protocols Friday, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.
Miles, Bruno Fernando, Enes Freedom and Justin Jackson all entered protocols together. More minutes should be available for Romeo Langford, Aaron Nesmith and Joe Johnson.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' C.J. Miles: Joining Celtics
Miles signed a contract with the Celtics via hardship exemption Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Miles signed with the NBA G League Ignite on Friday, but he'll now join the shorthanded Celtics ahead of Monday's game against the 76ers. While it's not yet clear whether the 34-year-old will be available against Philadelphia, he could see some playing time while Boston deals with several absences.... See More ... See Less
Celtics' C.J. Miles: Will be available Monday
Miles will be available for Monday's contest against the 76ers, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.
Miles, who recently made his NBA return by signing a G League contract, was quickly scooped up by the Celtics via hardship exemption after they lost a handful of players to the NBA's health and safety protocols. The 34-year-old veteran will be available for Boston, but given it's his first NBA action since 2019, he's unlikely to play a large role.... See More ... See Less
C.J. Miles: Joins G League Ignite
Miles signed with the NBA G League Ignite on Friday, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
Miles, who is a 17-year NBA veteran, will join the Ignite as a mentor for the youthful Ignite squad. The 34-year-old last played in the NBA in 2019 before a wrist injury kept him sidelined for the rest of the season. Miles' exact role for the team remains unclear, but it's likely he operates in a similar manner to what Udonis Haslem does for the Heat.... See More ... See Less
C.J. Miles: Cut loose by Washington
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: May be done for season
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Undergoes wrist surgery
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: To see specialist Monday
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: To miss rest of road trip
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Out with wrist injury
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Drops 21 off bench
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Scores 12 in season debut
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Will be available off bench
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Takes part in practice
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....

Wizards' C.J. Miles: Unlikely to play Saturday
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.... See More ... See Less
Wizards' C.J. Miles: Rehabbing in G League
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.... See More ...

Wizards' C.J. Miles: Ruled out against Rockets
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.... See More ... See Less
