Default Mike Miller back any day now (Dec. 20 or so)

Mike Miller, who has not made his debut with the Heat because of a thumb injury, traveled with the team for the first time in the regular season for the Friday-Saturday back-to-back in New York and Washington. ``He's been dying to come with us, so we thought we'd throw him a bone,'' Spoelstra joked.

If the 6-8 sharpshooter pleaded to play against the Wizards, just imagine his anxious energy entering Monday night's game at AmericanAirlines Arena when the Heat (21-8) plays the Mavericks (21-5). It could be the most important game for the Heat to begin the most important week of the first two months of the regular season. The Heat plays the Lakers on Christmas. Spoelstra was scheduled to speak with team president Pat Riley on Sunday about the timetable for Miller's return. ``It's close,'' said Spoelstra, who added that he would like Miller to participate in at least one full-scale practice before being activated.
