Miles makes season debut for Jazz

Utah shooting guard C.J. Miles has returned to the Jazz lineup after missing almost two months because of a thumb injury.

Miles made his season debut in the second quarter Friday night against the Indiana Pacers. He had been out since rupturing a ligament in his left thumb during a practice Oct. 5. Miles had surgery two days later and missed the first 17 games of the season.

Miles averaged a career-high 9.1 points last season.
