North Miami Beach:

Udonis Haslem hopes to be ready - and able - to play soon.

The Miami Heat forward says he believes the NBA's players and owners will come to terms on a new labor deal in time to save the season. Haslem says players have been told "both sides want to get a deal done."

Labor talks are scheduled to resume Tuesday.

Whether Haslem will be ready whenever the season begins is unclear. He says he's still recovering from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left foot, an injury that kept him sidelined much of last season.

Haslem spoke Saturday at an event to benefit the children's foundation bearing his name.
