For those wondering, Mike Miller is not injured. At least that's what he told me on Tuesday when I asked him why he hasn't been playing lately. Miller started the first game of the preseason and played 17 minutes but hasn't sniffed the court since.
"No, I'm good," Miller said when asked if he was injured. "We've just got a stacked team. I'm just going to keep working and hopefully find a spot."
Now, it's entirely possible that Miller is hiding an injury. After all, he has been injured off and on for the better part of two years. But Miller said he went "full bore" in practice on Tuesday. The Heat practiced for two hours today, working on everything from conditioning to defense, to fast-break offense, to side-out-bounds plays.
"It was actually a really good practice," Miller said. "We were surprised."
