Miller cleared to resume playing for Heat

February 27, 2011

MIAMI (AP) -- Miami Heat swingman Mike Miller has been cleared to play after missing four games following several blows to the head.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Miller will be on the roster Sunday night when Miami hosts the New York Knicks.

Miller has not played since Feb. 15. He was involved in jarring collisions in three consecutive games over five days and was checked several times for concussionlike symptoms. He was out for Miami's last two games because of aftereffects of an ear infection.

Miller also missed the season's first 29 games with a broken bone and ligament damage in his right thumb. He came into Sunday averaging 5.9 points in 22 games.
