Udonis Haslem: ‘I Think I’m a Little Ahead of Schedule’

Haslem tells the local press what every Heat fan was hoping to hear, that his return to action could be sooner than initially thought. From the Herald: “Forward Udonis Haslem, sidelined since sustaining a foot injury Nov. 20, said Tuesday that doctors have told him he should be able to return by late March or April ‘if everything goes as planned.’ Said Haslem: ‘That’s what we’re shooting for.’ Then, he added wryly, ‘If I can pull of a Mike Miller, then maybe a month earlier.’ Haslem finally got off crutches on Monday and now has his left foot in a walking boot, which will come off in six weeks. ‘I think I’m a little ahead of schedule,’ he said. ‘It looks good. I don’t have much pain, but I’m not 100 percent weight bearing. It’s huge to go from crutches’ to a boot.”

    Oh man once Haslem is back, the title hunt is on or should I say The Mass murders of the League at the hands of the Big Three.

    Coming back to make side jumpers that Juwan Howard has missed all season so far would be a nice change of pace when Bron leads the team for the 5-6 minutes Wade and Bosh go to the bench. Take your time UD. If you can get a months worth of work before the playoffs it would be a blessing.

    As much as I dislike the Heat, I’ve gotta say that they really do look good. Haslem really will help them much more than Howard. I predict a Magic-Heat ECF.
