Haslem has not seen the court in eight of Miami's 11 games this season thus far. Haslem is at the point of his career where he serves as nothing more than a veteran presence, rather than someone who produces on the floor. The Heat simply have too much frontcourt depth for Haslem to carve out a legitimate role this season.
Heat forward Udonis Haslem (eye) will be available to play in the Wednesday preseason game against the Hornets, per Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post. The veteran has now apparently recovered from the hit he took under his left eye which required stitches and caused him to miss a portion of the preseason. Looking ahead, Haslem will continue his limited role off the bench.
Haslem will not play in Sunday's game against the Hawks. The veteran dealt with an illness earlier in the week, while he also had to get stitches under his left eye after colliding with Terrence Jones of the Rockets on Saturday. A bit bruised and battered, Haslem will get the night off for rest. Consider him questionable for Wednesday's tilt with the Wizards.
Heat forward Udonis Haslem received stitches under his left eye after colliding with Rockets' forward Terrence Jones during Saturday's preseason game. Haslem will likely be used as a reserve center/forward heading into the season, so his availability stemming from Saturday's injury won't be much of a concern for fantasy owners unless the Heat suffer multiple injuries in the frontcourt. If the 35-year-old were to miss time, it's unlikely that he will miss much of the regular season; however, more information should be available in the coming days.
Haslem (illness) returned to practice Friday, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Haslem missed Tuesday's exhibition against the Magic with the illness, but by returning to practice, he should be available for the remainder of the Heat's preseason schedule. The veteran big man is likely in line to serve as the Heat's third-string center behind Hassan Whiteside and Amar'e Stoudemire.
