At times, Udonis Haslem feels like himself. At other times he feels like, well, Joel Anthony.

Amid his ongoing bid to return from November foot surgery, the veteran Miami Heat power forward said Thursday he is surprised that the simple things no longer are so simple.

"I am in shape, but I don't know what it is," he said amid his first week back to full practices. "I've never been off my feet this long. It's a lot of different adjustments that you're dealing with, things you take for granted, like catching the ball. I've been bobbling a couple of passes."

That, of course, has not exactly limited Anthony from having an impact on this best-of-seven first-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers. But Haslem said it is more than just that.

"Stopping on a dime, on a closeout, I kind of haven't stopped as quickly as I've wanted to," he said. "You just take a lot of things for granted when you're playing.

"Today, I wasn't really able to get over the basket like I really want to."

Haslem was inactive again for Thursday's Game 3 against the 76ers, with coach Erik Spoelstra continuing to caution against the expectation of an impending Haslem return.
