(Greg) Oden started his first game for the Heat on Sunday in Miami’s 93-79 victory against the Bulls, and the big center is finally becoming familiar with the Heat’s offense and defense at this important time of the season. But the former No. 1 overall pick still isn’t focusing on the day-to-day minutia or his impact to the team. Oden’s big-picture perspective is unwavering.

He’s just happy to be here.

“For me, each game getting better and walking off healthy — they’re all milestones to me,” said Oden, who is attempting to revive his career after a series of knee injuries. “It has been a long road, so every one is a good one for me.”
