OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Starting forward Udonis Haslem did not travel with the Miami Heat for their game Thursday night at Oklahoma City so he could get treatment for a lower leg contusion.
Shane Battier was expected to take Haslem's spot in the starting lineup.
Haslem was injured in the first quarter of Miami's 117-104 victory against Portland on Tuesday night. The game at Oklahoma City was the last one for the Heat before the All-Star break.
