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.

Gee whiz. I sure hope the Heat don't use up all their bad luck as far as injuries go this early, before the season's even started.

Because I want them to flame out spectacularly. A first-round playoff exit, for example. Something wonderfully embarrassing like that. I can hope...

But Riles has to come back to coach in order to achieve maximum flameoutosity.

Have to imagine there are gambling operations which would happily take odds on when Riley swoops in... my guess is Saint Patrick's Day.

Also, I didn't mean my snarky comment to imply that I wish injury on anyone on the Heat, per se. I meant to wish bad luck in any form on the Heat, as long as LeBron James is on their payroll. Anything that prevents them from hoisting that ugly-ass trophy.
