Darius Miller Unsure About Playing During Restart

New Orleans Pelicans forward Darius Miller (Achilles) is unsure if he'll be ready to play when the NBA resumes play. Miller has not played this season after having surgery last August. He has been unable to get into 5-on-5 action yet, so the team will have to wait before they evaluate him. It's unlikely that Miller would have a big role on the team even if he does return later this month. The Pelicans have plenty of depth, so Miller will likely get lost in the shuffle.

Tyler Herro Says Ankle Is Fully Healed

Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro says that the league shutdown allowed his ankle to 100 percent heal. He returned prior to the hiatus, but his ankle still bothered him at times. "It definitely helped me just so I had more time to recover," Herro said. His fantasy value should be on the rise, but he'll need to compete for touches. Kendrick Nunn, Goran Dragic, and Duncan Robinson will also be fighting for minutes at the guard spots. It'll be interesting to see what the Heat do with their rotations with Herro back to full health.

Kent Bazemore Hopeful To Remain With Kings

Sacramento Kings guard Kent Bazemore mentioned he was hopeful to remain with the organization beyond the 2019-2020 season. His stats have taken a hit this season, but he is averaging 23.5 minutes per game through 20 games with Sacramento. Head coach Luke Walton said Bazemore was "a big part of [the Kings] having a little bit of success." Bazemore is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The Kings could likely bring him back on a reasonably cheap deal since he struggled this season. However, fantasy owners shouldn't expect much production from Bazemore despite him averaging decent playing time.
