Heat coach Erik Spoelstra talks about Udonis Haslem’s knee surgery for the first time Saturday. “He hasn’t had it yet,'' Spoelstra said. "Likely it will happen in the next couple weeks and he should be able to recover. But we’ll see. He had been playing with a variety of ailments and issues for the last couple months of the season and throughout the season. The thing about UD is he will never, ever talk about it. So he won’t use it as an excuse. I didn’t know what was bothering him more once we got into the playoffs, his shoulder, his hip, his knee or ankle. That just shows his level of toughness of commitment. He played through all of it.’’ Sulia
