Will Mike Miller Require Thumb Surgery?

Uh-oh. Kiss those Heat title dreams goodbye. I keed, I keed. The AP has the story of the bum digit: “Heat forward Mike Miller is not on Miami’s final preseason road trip, remaining home because of an injured right thumb that could sideline one of the NBA’s top 3-point shooters for several weeks. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Miller — a right-handed shooter — was hurt in practice on Wednesday. Miller was scheduled to have further tests performed Thursday to determine the severity of the injury, and surgery is a possibility.”

    This would suck if it happened in April 2011.

    This is irrelevant unless it was during the playoffs. Take your time Mike.

    James Jones and Eddie House will have to step up. Miller has been a pleasant surprise for me: he’s so much more than a 3-point shooter. I was really impressed by his ball skills and his defensive rebounding. He’s what Sasha Vujacic dreams to be at night.

    This was a freak thing, and it’s exactly why James Jones and Eddie House were signed. We’re fine for now. In fact, I expect a rough start to the season, but there’ll be no panic here. This team is built for the summer and I kinda don’t want a breeze through the regular season, but some real adversity. This is what makes teams tough and ready for the intensity level of the playoffs.

    “A rough start to the season”? Cheryl must have been trying to raise her cute quota.

    i don’t think this kind of stuff is irrelevant at all. these guys desperately need to get on the court together to get some chemistry going, and the injuries aren’t helping.

    (On Eddie House)… He’s what Sasha Vujacic dreams to be at night.

    @Cheryl (and Eboy ostensibly) – I think we’ll find that IF Miami struggle (or it’s percieved they are struggling, ie they drop a game…) in the early part of this season every commentor will be chomping at the bit to declare a doomed Miami Thrice overhaul having CLEARLY failed or some slop like this… essentially if the Heat drop games there will be CAPSLOCK A PLENTY…. : /

    Meh. Let others show what they’re made of. It’s not like they’re chasing the ’96 Bulls so it’s nothing to be too concerned about.

    They could have used him tonight with Mario Chalmers throwing all those bricks around….on another note, their closer was also needed tonight.
