Two of the Miami Heat's Big 3 have been sidelined with minor injuries this week, but both are expected back in the lineup for a Saturday night game against the New Jersey Nets.
The Palm Beach Post reports that All-Stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are both listed as gametime decisions on Saturday but indications are that both will play.
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, after Saturday’s shootaround at the Prudential Center, both declared that they were game-time decisions... It sure sounded, however, like their minds are already made up.Update: The Sun-Sentinel reports later Saturday afternoon that James will play but that Wade is not listed in the starting line-up. Just before tip, the Heat confirm that Wade will not play and remains day-to-day.
Wade has been dealing with a foot injury that kept him out of games against the Indiana Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks this week. James rolled his ankle against the Pacers and sat out the Hawks game.
Miami won both games and sits atop the Southeast Division at 7-1 on the season. The Nets are 2-6 and in the Atlantic Division's basement.
