Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports:
Miami Heat forward Mike Miller will not play Thursday against the Chicago Bulls, marking the third straight game he will miss.
Miller did not travel with the team Wednesday. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said the decision was based on an ear infection and not Miller’s recent battle with head injuries. He suffered three head-related injuries during collisions in games against the Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics.
“He still has a lingering ear infection and he’s not able to fly, so we’re not taking him with us,” Spoelstra said. “It’s not anything that has to do with the concussion. It’s his ear infection. We need to take care of that. He’s feeling better.”
