Heat forward Udonis Haslem tore foot ligament

Miami Heat power forward Udonis Haslem suffered a foot injury on Saturday night. Posted by Ben Golliver Update (9:48 p.m.): ESPN.com reports that Haslem "tore a ligament in his left foot," that he is out for an indefinite period of time and that surgery is on the table, but that a decision will wait until after further tests are conducted.
He will see a specialist on Monday, and surgery -- which could keep him out months instead of weeks -- remains an option. The Heat said they expect to have more information on Monday.
A Yahoo! report strikes an even graver tone.
The torn ligament in the left foot of Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem will at least keep him out until the All-Star break in February – and possibly for a significant portion of the regular season, a league source told Yahoo! Sports on Sunday night.
Original Post:  Miami Heat co-captain and burly power forward Udonis Haslem suffered a foot injury and was helped off the court during Miami's Saturday night loss to the Memphis Grizzliesudonis-haslem-foot The Sun-Sentinel reports that Haslem's initial diagnosis was a "sprained left foot" and that X-rays taken Saturday came back negative. However, the paper also quotes Heat star LeBron James expressing some serious concern. 
"What I've heard is, I mean I haven't heard from any docs, but he dislocated his second toe and he tore a few ligaments in his foot somewhere," forward LeBron James said. "I don't know how long he'll be out, but any time one of your teammates goes out, it hurts.
"It's huge. He's like our heart of our team. He's our power. He's our pride. He brings everything every night."
Of course, James is not a doctor, but his concern was shared by Heat forward Chris Bosh, who added that Haslem's exit from the court was "not a good sign."  This is cruel news for Haslem, who returned to the Heat at a steep discount. His absence will mean other veteran big men like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Juwan Howard and Joel Anthony will need to log additional minutes. It also applies additional pressure on Bosh to pick up his per-game rebounding numbers. This post will update with any additional injury updates that are made available later today.

This team can't recover from Haslem being out a substantial amount of time. They will simply get abused by any strong PF/C combo teams.

I can't help but think that if Miami has any more injuries, that LeGone is going to decided to quit... I've seen it before...

CBS, you have to stop posting these articles by independent bloggers as if they were by legitimate reporters.

"Of course, James is not a doctor...."

No, really?  Seriously, prior to reading that sentence was there anyone on the planet who thought LeBron might have been a doctor?

Firstly, I'm sorry to hear this about Udonis Haslem.  He's perhaps my second favorite player on the Heat to the mercenary that is Jerry Stackhouse.

I don't think it's too much to ask for Chris Bosh to improve his rebounding numbers. He's underperforming based on how he's done for his career.  This season's Toronto Raptors are rebounding better as a team (without Bosh) than Miami is with Bosh.  We all know rebounding as much effort as athleticism.

Believe or not, but this may be the final straw that forces LeBron to recognize his immense talents, and begin producing at a high level nightly.  For a change.

Huge loss. Lebron is correct- this guy is the heart of the team. He plays hard all the time.

Here is hoping that it is not as serrious as it now seems.
