Miami Heat's Mike Miller sidelined after hurting his thumb in practice
Miami Heat swingman Mike Miller is undergoing an MRI to determine the severity of a thumb injury he suffered during practice Wednesday.
"It was just a drill," Coach Erik Spoelstra told the Sun-Sentinel. "He got it caught in a jersey with some contact, on a post-up."
Miller may require surgery. Teammate Udonis Haslem spoke with him and said: "Obviously, he's disappointed. He was so excited to be here and be a part of this. The good thing is it's not season-ending, from what I'm hearing. So that's a good sign."
Of course, in the NBA, where the season doesn't end until mid-June, that may not be such a good sign after all.
