Darius Miller has ruptured his Achilles tendon in August and missed the rest of the season. The New Orleans Pelicans forward has leaned for advice on his former teammate DeMarcus Cousins, as he had also had the same injury two years ago.
Miller talked on nola.com about the recovery process and the tough situation during the NBA suspension, which make it difficult to gauge how close he is to returning.
“Like I said, right now I’m just taking it day-by-day, trying to add something new into my workouts and see how my body reacts,” Miller said. “Like I said, it’s unfortunate I can’t play five-on-five or at least three-on-three just to get a gauge, but we’re doing the most that we can right now to see about when I’ll be able to play.”
Miller, a rotational player during the 2018-19 campaign, averaged about 8 points on 38.2% from the arc in his career. He signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans, before he got hurt in August.
