04:14 PM ET 11.26 | Don't expect to see Shane Battier on the court for at least the next two games. The Miami Heat forward suffered a sprained MCL in the team's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, and LeBron James let it slip that the Heat are not going to have Battier for "the next few games." Battier, for his part, was more cautious. "I think it could have been a lot worse than it actually was," Battier said. "I've sprained my MCL before, so I knew what it felt like. I knew exactly what it was." Battier is still expected to sit out until Wednesday at the very earliest.

QUOTE(#3):

they have like 49 players under contract whom they promised big minutes too....I don't think he's so vital

LOL...

They will just knock the dust off of Miller and give him more P/T.

Lewis will snag extra minutes too, which is not a bad thing in either case.
