The New Orleans Pelicans’ forward Darius Miller will not accompany the team in Orlando, according to Marc J.Spears.

Miller, who is still recovering from an Achilles injury, will continue his rehab in New Orleans. The sharpshooting forward ruptured his Achilles last August.

He signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans just before he got hurt. New Orleans used Miller in the stretch forward, as he averaged a career 38.9% from deep.
