determining an uplink opportunity for transmission of the communication or a downlink opportunity for reception of the communication based at least in part on the timing of the opportunity,
wherein a counter for determining the uplink opportunity is incremented only for transmission time intervals (TTIs) in which the UE is allowed to transmit the communication in an uplink channel, or
wherein a counter for determining the downlink opportunity is incremented only for TTIs in which the UE can expect to receive the communication in a downlink channel; and
transmitting or receiving the communication in the uplink opportunity or the downlink opportunity.
