What’s more, according to Synergy Sports Tech, Miller is the league’s most accurate spot-up shooter among men with at least 80 such opportunities, scoring a ridiculous 1.38 points per possession (PPP) on those looks. When told about his mightily impressive marks, the sixth-year pro was quick to give a lot of the recognition to his teammates. “I get a lot of open looks here with all of the attention that our star players bring to themselves,” Miller told HoopsHype. “[Davis and Cousins] are two of the best big men in the league. And I’ve known them for a while, so they’re good friends of mine. It’s just always fun to be in an environment like that when you’re trying to play basketball.”

He is expected to miss 8-12 weeks.
On Thursday, the Pelicans’ workout group included forwards Anthony Davis, Jason Smith, Arinze Onuaku, Darius Miller and Lance Thomas, guards Austin Rivers, Brian Roberts, rookie center Jeff Withey and Evans. “Its been great that all of us have been willing to sacrifice and work together as a team,’’ Evans said. “Anytime guys want to come out and do that, that’s a good start. We’re looking to make a push to the playoffs and this is where it’s got to start in the offseason.’’
The Pelicans have averaged about eight players per session for their offseason volunteer workouts at the Alario Center. Some of the players participating have included forward Al Farouq Aminu, guard Brian Roberts, forward Lance Thomas, forward Darius Miller and forward Anthony Davis. “It has been nice, the gym has been rocking,’’ Williams said.“We’re going to see how it goes, but our guys are enjoying it for sure.’’
The New Orleans Hornets backcourt had a distinctly different look Monday night against the Denver Nuggets, with a pair of rookies, Brian Roberts and Darius Miller in the starting linup instead of Greivis Vasquez and Eric Gordon. Gordon was scratched because of a sore left ankle, an injury Gordon said he has been fighting recently that worsened after a misstep Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Miller was inactive for Saturday night’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats because of the return of shooting guard Eric Gordon, and his playing time this season has been minimal.
Rookie Darius Miller will start in place of Rivers, who had his left index finger taped on his non-shooting hand during the shootaround. Williams wouldn’t elaborate on Rivers’ injury other than to say he injured it at practice. “I really don’t know the specifics on it yet, but it’s nothing too serious,” Rivers said. “I don’t ever want to sit out a game because this is what I love to do.” Rivers, who participated in the shootaround, said he thought he was playing but the Hornets made the decision to hold him out. “Whenever they want me back, I will love to play,” Rivers said.
