After sitting out essentially the entire NBA season, Miami Heat big man Udonis Haslem is ready to make a comeback. After going back and forth the last couple of weeks, Haslem appears ready to give it a go against the Boston Celtics tonight in game 4.
So what does this mean? Well, on paper this is huge for the Heat as Haslem is arguably their best role player capable of hitting the boards and bolstering a weak Miami front court. In reality, he has not played since undergoing foot surgery in early November. The rust will be inevitable, however, the Heat can use any help they can get at this point as they look to regain control of the series after being out played in game three.
If all else fails, Haslem could help reassure Chris Bosh that it will be OK and not worry about it being dark prior to the game.
