As the NBA All Star weekend draws near, one name that will not be called in the Rising Stars Challenge is Indiana Pacers rookie forward Myles Turner.

The Strange Path Of C.J. Miles

C.J. Miles sits on the baseline at TD Garden. The Indiana Pacers have just finished a late-morning practice and trainer Josh Corbeil wraps a bag of ice around one of Miles' ankles.
