On Sunday, Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra started Greg Oden and moved Shane Battier to the bench against the Houston Rockets so the center could defend Dwight Howard. Miami plays in Cleveland on Tuesday and as of Monday Spoelstra would not say who will start against the Cavs. As far as Battier is concerned, he is fine with whatever role he's given by Spoelstra.
