MIAMI - Miami Heat reserve guard Mike Miller is back at practice, less than 24 hours after leaving the arena with his left arm in a sling.

Miller, a former Gator, said Wednesday he'll be ready for Game 2 of the NBA finals Thursday against the Dallas Mavericks. He wore a sleeve on his arm during Game 1 and grimaced several times while managing six points and five rebounds in 20 minutes.

Miller missed much of the season with a series of injuries, but was part of a superior bench effort in the 92-84 win over Dallas. The Heat reserves outscored the Mavericks' reserves 27-17 and outrebounded them 15-8.
