Miami Heat guard Mike Miller on Monday denied a report that he would retire at the end of the NBA Finals, reports the Palm Beach Post's Ethan Skolnick.

The 32-year-old, in his 12th NBA season, has battled back injuries throughout the season. He also had thumb and shoulder surgery last offseason and missed the start of this season after hernia surgery.

“At this point, everybody’s a little banged up,” Miller told the Post. “Everybody’s going through things. I’ll re-evaluate my health after the season. But I don’t have anything set up. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Miller averaged 6.1 points per game in 39 appearances this season. That is far below his career average of 12.8 points per game.
