Shane Battier Day-To-Day With Sprained Knee
Miami Heat forward Shane Battier confirmed Monday he has suffered a sprained right knee ligament, and teammates are preparing to be without him for a few games.
Battier sustained the injury when he landed awkwardly after a teammate fell into him in the third quarter of Saturday’s win against Cleveland. He immediately hopped off the court, headed directly to the Heat’s locker room and did not return to the game.
The Heat are officially listing Battier as day to day, but coach Erik Spoelstra suggested after Monday’s practice that the designation was extremely optimistic.
