greg_oden_2013Even with Chris Bosh back in Miami after the birth of his daughter and unavailable for Tuesdays game against the Raptors, the Heat did not consider center Greg Oden as an option to replace him.

Coach Erik Spoelstra indicated hes not yet ready to use Oden in a game as he continues to his work his way back from years of knee problems. In fact, Oden didnt even accompany the team to Toronto.

Were training him right now, Spoelstra said. He can get a ton more work in our facility. Thats our priority right now. We have all our equipment there. Not just weight equipment, but Alter G [treadmill], which is imperative for him right now. Theres nothing alarming about this. Hell be with us when it makes sense.
