Sprained MCL to sideline Heat's Shane Battier

The Heat will be without Shane Battier for an undetermined time with a sprained MCL. Teammate LeBron James first alerted the media to Battier's status at a Monday session.

Battier was injured when teammate Udonis Haslem was knocked backwards into his knee while taking a charge from the Cavs' Alonzo Gee.

Battier immediately grabbed his knee, left the game and did not return. He followed with a Twitter update:

Battier has been an effective passer, defender and three-point shooter, hitting 45.8 percent from behind the arc for the Heat. His absence could mean more playing time for Rashard Lewis, who has struggled in his first season in Miami.
