PORTLAND — Heat forward Shane Battier will likely sit out Thursday night's game against the Trail Blazers due to a sore hamstring. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Battier has played with a sore hamstring for "four of five" games. While Spoelstra would not definitively rule out Battier against Portland, all signs point to him missing the game. Battier did not participate in the Heat's practice on Thursday and rested again during Friday morning's shootaround at Rose Garden.
