A strained left hamstring sidelined Heat guard Dwyane Wade for a fifth consecutive game on Friday night, but Heat players said he’s improving, and LeBron James said Wade “probably” will return “within the next week.” There doesn’t appear to be concern about Wade’s availability for the start of the playoffs in two weeks.

But there is some uncertainty about a timetable. Udonis Haslem said Friday “it’s hard to tell” when Wade will play in a game again. “He’s out there a few minutes at practice, not too heavy,” Haslem said. “He’s moving pretty well. He’s getting better. Hopefully, he’ll be back a couple of games before the playoffs. I’m sure that’s what he’s hoping for. It’s nothing we want to push. We need him for the playoffs.” Miami Herald

"Andy was at a gas station," Riley said. "And he said Dwyane had accepted his extension, and it was a three-plus-one [three years guaranteed, plus one option year]. And it was Dwyane and LeBron James and Chris Bosh and Amar'e Stoudemire and a bunch of other guys that signed their extensions and they're all three years with one option. And I said, 'Well, who are the other guys?' And he gave me the list. And I said, 'Well, we're going to be players in 2010.'" ESPN.com

Wade revealed on Tuesday as part of an interview for the cover story of an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine that the three, who have gone to three straight Finals and won the last two, plan to have that conversation at some point. "I'm at a position where I don't really have to worry about it," said Wade, who also won a title for the Heat in 2006. "I've been with the same organization for now 11 years. We've won multiple championships, so it's no reason where I need to think about that yet. I'm not at a point where we are a bad team and I need to think about the future so right now I'm really focused on just enjoying this team, enjoying our quest to try to 'Three-peat.' And when the season is over, and whatever happens, then I will sit down and I will sit down with Chris and I will sit down with Bron and I will sit down and make the best decision for myself and my family."

Dwyane Wade's latest Li-Ning shoes dropped in China on March 5 and they're pretty ... well...nationalistic. The release date coincided with Lei Feng Day, which honors a famous solider in the People's Liberation Army. Lei Feng is kind of like a poster boy for China's Communist party. He was celebrated for his selflessness and stuff, so his nickname translates in English to "screw." You know, because he did the little, important things that held everything together. Kind of like a "glue guy" in basketball. Anyway, the name of Wade's new shoe in China is "Screw," after Lei Feng, the national hero. Miami Herald
