Miles Important Wing Scorer for Pacers

This is the second time this year Miles' shoulder has given him problems. He exited a Jan. 4 game against the Miami Heat with a similar problem.

Miles started the year in the Pacers' starting five but fell out of the lineup in January and never regained his spot on a consistent basis. With Myles Turner excelling at power forward, Paul George has been playing at his favored 3 position, which Miles once occupied.

The 29-year-old remains a regular in Indiana's rotation, averaging 22.9 minutes per game. Miles is still a defensive liability, but he's scoring 11.8 points per game on 40.9 percent shooting, including 36.7 percent from three-point range.
