The Washington Wizards waived forward CJ Miles today. Miles appeared in 10 games off the bench for the Wizards this season, averaging 6.4 points and 1.2 assists in 16.1 minutes per game before suffering a season-ending wrist injury in the team’s game on Nov. 26 at Denver.

“We appreciate CJ’s contributions to our team this season and wish him and his family the best as he continues his career,” said Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard. “He is a consummate professional who provided a great example for our younger players despite having his season cut short by an unfortunate injury.”

Here’s the Washington Post:

Upon joining the team in the summer, Miles was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot and required surgery. He missed all of training camp and preseason and made his Wizards debut Nov. 4.

As a backup, Miles appeared in 10 games, averaged 6.4 points and shot 31.4 percent from beyond the three-point arc. By the time he was entrenched as a role player off the bench, however, Miles suffered ligament damage in his left wrist when he took a charge in a Nov. 26 game in Denver. Miles underwent another surgery that effectively ended his season as well as his short time in Washington.

Miles was acquired by Washington from Memphis in exchange for center Dwight Howard on July 6, 2019.
