Patty Mills PG SA 5 Days
Patty Mills got hot off the bench on Tuesday during a win over the Cavs with 16 points, three boards, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
While Tony Parker going down hurt the Spurs a little in the standings, the time off allowed Patty Mills to really develop his game. He's not shy about taking shots and had 10.2 shots per game in his last five to go with averages of 9.6 points, 3.6 boards, 2.2 assists , 0.6 steals and 1.4 triples. He's still not worth owning in standard leagues while Parker is healthy.

Patty Mills came off the bench and played 21 minutes, finishing with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer on 5-of-10 shooting.
Mills had just four points in his last game, mainly because he hit just 2-of-14 shots, but played a little better tonight. The 21 minutes are a little disappointing, but as long as Tony Parker (back/rest) remains out, Mills is still worth using in most leagues. Prior to his two-game drought, Mills was hot, scoring between 23 and 29 points in four of seven games. Cory Joseph started and played 25 minutes, but finished with 11 points and zero assists. Mills is still the guy to own while Parker is out.

Patty Mills scored 24 of his 29 points in the second half on Wednesday, finishing with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in a tough win over the Blazers.
Mills is on fire right now, as Tony Parker sits with a back injury, and has scored 25 or more points in three of his last four games, including a season-high 32 points a week ago Saturday. Over his last five, which includes a six-point game when he dinged up his ankle, Mills is averaging 21.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers. Parker will eventually be back from his back injury, but Gregg Popovich may see fit to limit his minutes with Mills playing so well. It's hard to say how long this run will last, but you might as well pick him up and plug him in while he's hot.

Patty Mills stayed hot on Tuesday with Tony Parker in street clothes and had 25 points, five rebounds, five assists, a block and two 3-pointers on 9-of-15 shooting in 27 minutes off the bench.
With the news that Tony Parker could miss several more games with general soreness, Mills should keep it going. And he's officially hot, averaging 19.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games.

Patty Mills played through his sprained ankle on Wednesday and hit 6-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points and two steals in 20 minutes off the bench.
Tony Parker was out and any time that's the case, Mills is a good bet for some solid production. Cory Joseph got the start tonight and also played well, but once Parker's back, both guards will be too inconsistent for most fantasy rosters.

Patty Mills suffered a sprained ankle against the Pistons on Monday, playing just 14 minutes for six points with one board, one assist and one turnover.
He shrugged off his injury after the game and said he expects to play on Wednesday. Mills could be a key piece of their offense with Tony Parker a possible candidate to sit. However, Parker sitting is more speculation than anything else, so there's really no need to add Mills based on that for now.

Patty Mills put the Spurs on his back during Saturday's 104-100 win against the Bobcats, scoring a season-high 32 points with seven boards, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

Mills played well over his previous two games, averaging 19.5 points, 3.5 boards, 3.0 assists and 3.0 triples in just 21.5 minutes. His minutes have yet to really take off, but his volume scoring while he's out there can be useful for owners in deeper leagues or even some standard formats until he cools off.

Patty Mills scored 16 points off the bench against the Nets on Thursday with one board, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.
He is going to be a huge part of the bench and has usually been the better guard to own compared to Cory Joseph. Mills has some nice range and he can get his own shot, so he's a decent player to pick up in some 14- and 16-team leagues at least until Tony Parker is back.

Patty Mills had 15 points, one rebound, one assist, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers on 6-of-14 shooting on Saturday.
Given all of the injuries the Spurs are dealing with Mills is getting some nice opportunity right now, mostly off the bench. He's averaging 11.0 points, 1.2 steals and 2.4 3-pointers over his last five games, and if those numbers will help your team, he might be worth a short-term look until his teammates get healthy.

Patty Mills lost some of his momentum against the Heat on Sunday, scoring just three points with two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.
He had 13 triples in his previous three games and had nowhere to go but down today. Joseph just didn't have a role with the not really having a place to put him on defense, so he should have a better showing in the divisional matchup against the Rockets on Tuesday.
