There's no timetable for Darius Miller's return from foot injury

September 30, 2013 

Darius Miller still needed crutches to get around at the New Orleans Pelicans' media day Monday.

The former University of Kentucky star, who has a stress fracture in his left foot, still does not have a timetable for his return.

The injury was announced on Sept. 9 and was expected to sideline Miller for 8-12 weeks. The second-year forward is wearing a cast, but hopes to be able to have it removed in 10-14 days.

He will not be able to play in the NBA pre-season game against the Washington Wizards on Oct. 19 in Rupp Arena.

There was no specific play that caused the injury, the team's website reported.

Miller started to feel pain in the foot while working out and eventually asked the team's medical staff to examine it.

"I'm waiting to get the cast off so I can get it stronger, and get the range of motion back in my ankle," Miller said. "I haven't really talked about a set date (to return) or anything. They said they don't want to rush it, and I don't blame them."
