Miller won’t hurry back from left knee injury

COPPER MOUNTAIN – Bode Miller won’t hurry back from his knee injury.
If the Olympic and world champion skier has to miss a few World Cup races, so be it. Simply part of the healing process.
He’s definitely out for the competition in Lake Louise, Alberta, next weekend, and probably won’t be ready in time to race in Beaver Creek, Colo., either, even though he’s the defending downhill champion on that course.
Maybe years ago, when Miller was much more impatient and racing meant everything to him, he might have gambled and returned before he was ready.
Not at 35, though, and in the twilight of his career. He insisted he’s in no rush to click back into his skis and compete after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee nine months ago.
