NEW ORLEANS -- For Greg Oden and his Miami Heat teammates, four minutes on an
NBA court in a preseason game was cause for celebration. "Its been a long time
and Ive been wanting to get out there," Oden said after his preseason debut in
Miamis 108-95 victory at New Orleans on Wednesday night. "It was only a couple
minutes, but it was what I needed, what I can handle right now and, you know,
small baby steps." Oden is attempting to come back from knee injuries that have
plagued him since he was drafted first overall out of Ohio State in 2007. The
last time he played in an NBA game was on Dec. 5, 2009, for the Portland Trail
Blazers. Not long after he came in against the Pelicans, he scored his only
points of the night on a dunk, which was also his only shot. He also grabbed a
pair of defensive rebounds. "It was a very special moment," LeBron James said of
Odens appearance. "I have no idea what my feeling would be like, being away from
the game for three years. It was like a proud moment, man. I was so excited for
him when he got on the court and he checked in -- and his first basket he gets a
dunk. Can you write it any better? Obviously hes not where he wants to be, but
the process is going great. "I can just imagine how excited he was to get back
out there," James continued. "Im going to have to take a toast for him, man. I
aint no drinker, but I might have to take a shot for him. It was an absolutely
great moment." Miami is a team used to celebrating NBA championships after
winning the past two. Oden was gratified to see how much it also meant to the
Heat to see him show the first small sign of a successful return to the game he
loves, and missed. "In December it would be four years, so four minutes, thats
enough for me," Oden said. "As long as I got out there and I walked off and Im
healthy, thats all that matters. "I know the guys were happy for me," Oden
added. "I definitely felt love. And Im excited that they were there for me."
Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said Odens face "lit up" when he told him he was going
to put him in the game. "We are just so pleased for him," Spoelstra said. "It
was just great to see him do something he loves to do. It was taken away from
him for four years. We just continue to make patient, steady progress forward
from here." James scored 27 points and Dwyane Wade added 25 for the Heat, who
trailed after three quarters but opened the fourth with a 21-2 run. Wade hit a 3
during the decisive surge, then stole the ball for a breakaway jam. Ray Allen
did all his scoring with three straight 3s to make it 98-84. Chris Bosh had 14
points and nine rebounds for Miami (5-2), and Chris Andersen added 13 points.
Eric Gordon scored 19 for New Orleans (6-1), while Anthony Davis had 18 points
and eight rebounds. Anthony Morrow added 16 points, Jrue Holiday 12 and Ryan
Anderson 10. #30 Matt Murray Adidas Jersey .
Al Harrington, another former Knicks forward, scored 22 of his 24 points after
halftime for the Nuggets, allowing them to withstand Anthonys attempt to rally
the Knicks after his poor shooting had them behind until the final minutes of
regulation. Anthony finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, missing 20 of 30
shots in the Knicks sixth straight loss. Replica

Thursday that linebacker DeVonte Holloman has a career-ending neck injury
related to a spinal problem that kept him out almost half of his rookie season a
year ago. Coach Jason Garrett said Holloman was advised not to play again after
doctor evaluations this week. After missing the first two days of practice this
week, the 23-year-old Holloman was on the field Thursday in his No. 57 jersey
but didnt appear in the locker room when it was open to reporters after Garretts
announcement. Garrett wouldnt discuss details of the injury other than saying
Holloman has been dealing with a neck issue "the last couple of weeks." Holloman
came out of last weekends preseason game against Baltimore midway through the
fourth quarter because of the injury. "Its a very challenging, difficult thing
for a young man who has dreams of being an NFL football player, achieves those
dreams," Garrett said. "But this becomes an easy decision for him and for his
family when youre dealing with that kind of injury." Holloman returned an
interception 75 yards for a touchdown in his Dallas debut in the Hall of Fame
preseason game last year, and the converted safety ended up starting at middle
linebacker in the regular-season finale against Philadelphia because of injuries
to other players. The sixth-round pick, who played the first six weeks before
injuring his neck in practice and missing seven games, led the Cowboys with 11
tackles in a loss that kept the Cowboys out of the playoffs. "It bothered me a
lot ... because me and Holloman, we was like a brotherhood," said safety
J.J. Wilcox, another member of Dallas 2013 draft class. "It just goes to show
you that this game here is not for long. Its tough.&quuot; The Cowboys have
already lost middle linebacker Sean Lee to a season-ending knee
injury.ddddddddddddHolloman was essentially slotted as Lees backup while getting
work at both outside linebacker spots as well. His versatility was expected to
help offset the loss of Lee. "He was such a good role player for us last year,"
Garrett said. "At every turn just took full advantage of the opportunity to show
us what hes all about. Did that this year in training camp as well. You could
tell he was dealing with this though." Several Dallas players heard the news on
Holloman from reporters, including Orlando Scandrick. The seventh-year
cornerback has been suspended for the first four games for violating the ban on
performance-enhancing drugs. "Its humbling," Scandrick said. "Its something that
Ive done for so many years, to have it temporarily taken away from me. And I
cant even imagine how he feels to have something permanently taken away from him
for things that he cant control." Holloman played four years at South Carolina
and had seven career interceptions as a safety. "Hes going to be successful in
the real world," Wilcox said. "Im pretty sure hes got his head on straight, so I
know hes going to do great things outside of football." NOTES: QB Tony Romo
returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesdays session. He was vague on
how long he will play in Dallas third preseason game at Miami on Saturday night.
Owner Jerry Jones said earlier in the week it would be close to the same 16
snaps, and 14 official plays, that Romo had against the Ravens. It was his first
game since back surgery in December. ... CB Sterling Moore practiced for the
