New Orleans Pelicans forward Darius Miller is expected to miss seven to eight months after undergoing surgery on a ruptured right Achilles tendon, the team announced on Thursday.

Miller, 29, made 69 appearances (15 starts) with the Pelicans last season, averaging 8.2 points on 39% shooting from the field, 2.1 assists and 1.9 rebounds. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward returned to the Pelicans roster two years ago after a three-season stint overseas. He played in all but 13 regular season games in since the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

Miller signed a two-year, $14.2 million deal with New Orleans in July.

According to ESPN's Malika Andrews, Miller suffered the Achilles injury while playing 3-on-3 basketball. He is scheduled to start rehab next week and begin practicing in five to six months.
