Mike Miller was expected to be out until January. That was the plan. But Miller knows how much the Heat miss him and is doing everything he can to get back sooner than expected. Particularly in time for the Heat's biggest challenge yet, the Lakers on Christmas day.
ESPN.com reports that Miller told reporters he is trying to make it back for when the Heat and Lakers play on Dec. 25th. From ESPN.com:
The Heat need Miller badly. Eddie House and James Jones are making an entire village out of the bricks they're throwing up, and Wade and James need someone to take the constant doubles off. Miller's not an answer for all their problems, but he's a pretty good start.
"My goal is to get out there a little quicker than we thought. I'm looking to be out there ready to go when we play the Lakers."
