HIALEAH, Fla. - Mike Miller has decided against retirement and plans to return to the NBA champion Miami Heat next season.

Miller says he expects that he can avoid back surgery. He has been consulting with Miami neurosurgeon Dr. Barth Green throughout this offseason and believes the back problems he dealt with this past season can be minimized through rest and rehabilitation.

Miller has three years remaining on his contract with the Heat, but considered retiring after two injury-filled seasons in Miami.

Miller was 7 for 8 from 3-point range in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against Oklahoma City, helping the Heat clinch the franchise's second championship.
