Knee injury sidelines Miller for rest of season

PAT GRAHAM AP Sports Writer Published:

Bode Miller will undergo another surgery on his balky left knee and miss the remainder of the World Cup season.

The five-time Olympic medalist had a minor arthroscopic procedure performed on the knee earlier this month with the hope of quickly returning to the circuit. But when Miller recently arrived back in Europe, he experienced more discomfort.

The U.S. ski team didn't release a date for Miller's next surgery.

Miller says he will return to training, "as soon as possible. I'm still having fun and as long as skiing is enjoyable, I'm going to continue to do it."

The 34-year-old Miller had four podium finishes this season, including a win on the challenging Birds of Prey downhill course at Beaver Creek in December. He was 10th in the overall standings.
