During key fourth-quarter moments, Udonis Haslem usually is more likely to be on the floor than any Heat player excluding the Big 3. But Haslem, an asset as a rebounder and defender, has not played at all in each of the past two fourth quarters and has not snapped out of his puzzling seasonlong shooting slump. Now, with Chris Bosh likely out for a while, there's an even greater burden on Haslem, who's averaging 3.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and shooting 31.8 percent (7 for 22) in the playoffs. He went 0 for 4 from the field, with five rebounds, in 22 minutes in Game 1 against Indiana.
