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.
