Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers revealed Tuesday that the recent procedure on his right knee actually was to address a season-long issue. On hand Tuesday at AmericanAirlines Arena as the team announced a $350,000 donation from the team’s charitable fund to Big Brothers Big Sisters to create a fitness center, Chalmers said the May 29 arthroscopic procedure to repair an inflamed Plica in his right knee was something he decided to put off during a season.
After Wade’s injury in the second quarter, Chalmers backed up both Goran Dragic and rookie Tyler Johnson, who started the second half at shooting guard. Chalmers wasn’t complaining about his role on Thursday in that visiting locker room in Cleveland. He just couldn’t really explain it. “I don’t know,” Chalmers said. “It’s something I’ve never experienced before. This is something new to a lot of people on this team, but we’ve got to make it work.”

Mario Chalmers has no idea what his role is

On the other end, Wade’s sometimes backup, Mario Chalmers, questioned his place on the team. As one of the Heat’s only uninjured players, Chalmers knows he has a lot to offer, but at this point he’s not quite sure how to do it. Seven games remain of this bewitched and broken season. “I don’t even really know what my role is on this team anymore,” Chalmers told the Miami Herald. “I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing.”
Bosh delivered the dagger — a 3-pointer 1:23 from the end that brought that 11-point lead. He credited Chalmers, who credited coach Erik Spoelstra, who credited everybody — including three rookies (James Ennis, Shabazz Napier and Andre Dawkins) who played together. Miami, on the tail end of a back-to-back, was without Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Luol Deng (wrist) and Josh McRoberts (foot). “We’re going to put the ball in [Chalmers’] hands sometimes, especially late in the game and especially with guys out. We were relying on him a bit and he came through,” said Bosh, who had a key offensive rebound that led to his own jumper, Chalmers assisting, to ignite the key 9-2 streak.
Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers has listed a Miami condominium formerly owned by the hip-hop artist Drake for sale at $4 million. The residence, which featured prominently in the music video for the DJ Khaled song “I’m on One,” consists of two merged units within the Marquis Residences with vaulted interiors, floor-to-ceiling glass and a marble staircase. Combined, the two-story floor plan contains a chef’s kitchen, a den, a game room, a wet bar, five bedrooms and five baths in 5,475 square feet of living space.
The loss of LeBron James stings. No way around that. But Heat president Pat Riley didn’t sulk. At least not for too long. Two days after reaching a new deal with forward Chris Bosh and hours after landing free-agent forward Luol Deng, Riley on Sunday continued to fill roster spots. The Heat will re-sign point guard Mario Chalmers and big man Chris Andersen, a person familiar with the deal told USA TODAY Sports.

Miami will try to fight off elimination in the NBA Finals tonight with Ray Allen in the starting lineup and regular starting point guard Mario Chalmers on the bench. The Heat announced shortly before tipoff in San Antonio they will start LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Rashard Lewis and Allen. They also deactivated Greg Oden and Justin Hamilton, meaning Michael Beasley will be available for the first time in this series.
“The crime scene was contaminated,” said Miami Beach police spokesman Bobby Hernandez. “A crime scene tells a story.” Item contamination “takes away from the narrative.” Adding to the difficulty of the police investigation: the death of Antaun Teasley, 42, a celebrated chef who cooked for professional athletes that include Miami Heat point guards Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers. Teasley was found with a bullet in his upper torso by the club’s promoter, a personal friend, near an exit at Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave. He was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, where he died. “It’s like taking pieces of the puzzle away. It could be anything from a club bottle with glass that contains prints, to blood spats,” Hernandez said. “What has really set us back, too, is that the victim passed away.”
After a personal chef was shot dead at the South Beach club Mansion, the crowd scattered, jammed exits, and ran out onto Washington Avenue and into nearby clubs where patrons blended in with the dancing masses. The chaos and cleanup that followed left the crime scene poisoned. In the aftermath of Tuesday’s shooting and the fight that preceded it inside the club’s VIP section, tables were knocked around, couch pillows were tossed about, and glasses, bottles and napkins with potential fingerprints went airborne.
