Udonis Haslem has been the heart and soul of the Miami Heat since beginning the 2003 season with Dwyane Wade. Haslem remains a team captain even while LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined the party and has continually put his place with this franchise first over money and playing time.

But Haslem had a poor showing in the 2013 NBA Finals. Udonis started most of the season in the frontcourt alongside Chris Bosh and all throughout the playoffs. Yet he was replaced in Games 4-7 of the Finals for Mike Miller. Haslem then played only 21 minutes for the remainder of the series including sitting out the entirety of Game 6.

So how does one go from being a starter to a DNP-Coach's Decision?

I'm not sure we will know. One thing we do know is that Udonis has knee surgery this off-season to repair some cartilage and fix a few things.
