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

by January 05, 2011

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.”
