2018 Fantasy Outlook
Miller played in all 82 games last season and even started three contests. Across his 23.7 minutes per game, Miller was able to deliver 7.8 points on 44 percent shooting, including 1.8 made three-pointers per game. The addition of Julius Randle adds another body in the frontcourt, so expect Miller to once again spend the bulk of his time as a reserve wing. Regardless, Miller is mostly a three-point streamer in typical formats, given that he failed to make meaningful contributions in other categories last season. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
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.

Miller enters his third year in the NBA with the Pelicans after inking a new deal with New Orleans this summer. The Kentucky product has mostly failed to impress in his two years with the Pelicans. Last season, he appeared in 45 games, averaging 4.4 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.0 assist in 16 minutes per game. His shooting numbers, 44 percent from the floor and 33 percent from deep, aren't spectacular, but his 0.5 steals in limited action could be useful in that category if he gets extended time. Coach Monty Williams has previously shown a desire to leave Tyreke Evans in a sixth-man role, meaning the starting small forward spot could be open to Miller after the Pelicans opted not to retain incumbent Al-Farouq Aminu. Miller would have to beat out the veteran John Salmons for the job, were it available, but Salmons' best days are behind him, and Miller has the advantage of familiarity with Williams' system. For whatever it's worth, Miller showed flashes of productivity in seven starts last year, averaging 9.7 points and 1.9 steals per game.
Miller played in 52 games as a rookie last season but didn't do much of note statistically. With a litany of wing players ahead of him in the rotation, Miller won't see a lot of time on the floor with New Orleans, making a trip to the D-League this year possible. The coaching staff is hoping Miller improves defensively this season.
Drafted this year by the Hornets, Miller brings size and versatility to the team. Standing at 6’8 and playing four years at Kentucky, Miller plays both the wing positions. Averaging 9.9 ppg, 2.0 apg, 2.8 rpg and shooting above 37% from deep, Miller will be a serviceable utility player off the bench and be able to spell multiple positions. Barring injuries, Miller should be seen as strictly a utility player with the possibility of a very rare spot start.
