Shane Battier sat out of Monday's practice two days after spraining his right knee.

Battier said he had a sprained MCL and did not need an MRI.

Battier had a similar injury during his tenure with the Rockets.

"Day to day, we'll see," Battier said. "I didn't hear a pop or anything like that."

LeBron James, however, hinted that Battier would be out longer.

"It's unfortunate we're not going to have him the next few games," James said.
