08:42 AM ET 11.17 | Greg Oden's agent, Mike Conley Sr., said Oden appearing in a Heat game is ???probably a ways away. The main goal is to have him ready for the second half of the season and the playoffs." When he plays, Conley said, will be a "combination of a gut feeling from Erik Spoelstra and the trainers. Conditioning is big part of it. He's very antsy to play" but he understands Spoelstra being cautious.

There's a better chance of Santa Clause visiting my house than Oden playing another game in the NBA.

I'm confused, didn't he PLAY in a pre-season game?did he have a set-back?

It would seem another....in a long line of them.

No set back at all...the team is taking is seriously slow with him.

I really do not expect to see him until around January.

Then that gives Miami the next 5 months to develop how he fits into their rotation.

The Beasley signing has paid off though. He has been very solid off the bench when a player either gets into foul trouble, needs rest or is sick.

Oden is about 73-games away to being ready to play the season.
