07:29 AM ET 12.12 | On a broader scale, Greg Oden was acquired to add a presence for the Heat -- but, more acutely, it can be defined these days by a need to combat Roy Hibbert. In the back of Hibbert's head throughout Tuesday was the idea that the Heat would attempt to pull a strategic fast one on the first-place Pacers and activate Oden for his first game of the season against the first-place Pacers. Hibbert's hunch was incorrect, but it was well founded all the same. ... When will Oden play for the Heat? That's unclear. Spoelstra has not stated a timetable for Oden's return and that might be because there simply isn't one. He could be ready to play next week or he could be resigned to the bench until February or beyond. The Heat will not allow Oden to speak with reporters.
