Teammate Dwyane Wade, who also visited Saturday with Bosh, said he is confident he again will play alongside Bosh. "For sure," he said. "This is not career ending." Wade said he was heartened by his visit. "I tried not to make him laugh too hard," he said. "Obviously that does not feel very good. "He's been in good spirits. That's the biggest thing. It probably hasn't hit him yet he's going to miss the rest of the season." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"I haven't played with a point guard with his ability since I've been here, in the league," Wade said Friday in the wake of the Thursday three-team deal that delivered Dragic and his brother, guard Zoran Dragic, from the Phoenix Suns to the Heat in exchange for Norris Cole, Danny Granger, Shawne Williams, Justin Hamilton and two future first-round draft picks. This is going to be great for everyone, a guy who can penetrate, set guys up, but also a guy who can score the basketball, as well, someone who's very tough. You want a tough guy to play with. He is that. Needless to say, I was very happy about what we were able to do at the trade deadline." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

In a new ad set to debut during Friday’s Spurs-Warriors game, the NBA is honoring the Chinese New Year. The commercial features James Harden and Jeremy Lin visiting a fan’s house to honor the holiday, which begins this week. The commercial is colorful and entertaining but is also a bit strategic for the league — as they point out on their YouTube page, China has the largest international NBA fan base. Another video posted to the league’s YouTube page shows a variety of “bloopers” that happened in the filming of the ad, including Dwyane Wade and Steph Curry having a bit of trouble with their lines.

When asked whether Wade believes in the recruiting process, he was quick to let it be known James wanted to come here on his own but at the same time he believes players being involved has some merit. "You know, we lean on each other for a lot of things, so obviously going into 2010 before we even realized we could play together, you're talking. "I'm sure I've sent a text to a lot of guys when they've come up". Hot Hot Hoops

In other words, Anthony and Jackson can’t offer what Wade and Riley could offer to James. "I didn’t have to recruit LeBron to come to Miami," Wade told me. "I didn’t have to recruit LeBron to want to play with one of his best friends. I had that advantage. The only thing we had to make sure of was how all of the money worked. We were able to do that and it worked." NBC New York

Marc Stein: NBA commissioner Adam Silver has to pick the injury replacement for Dwyane Wade and I'm hearing that it will be Kyle Korver who gets the nod. Korver, I'm told, poised to join Jeff Teague, Al Horford and Paul Millsap on East All-Star squad a la 2006 when Pistons had four on the team Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

Dwyane Wade wanted to play in the All-Star Game and wants to be as healthy as possible for the stretch run of the season. So playing this weekend was deemed an unneeded risk. The Miami Heat guard announced Tuesday he will not play in the NBA's midseason showcase, a decision made in an abundance of caution as he continues recovering from his latest hamstring injury. Wade has missed Miami's last six games and will remain inactive when the Heat close their pre-All-Star schedule in Cleveland on Wednesday night. 14News

Jason Lieser: Wade (hamstring) says he won't play in the All-Star Game. Wade: "I feel good, but the smart thing to me is to use the All-Star break to rest and get healthier." Twitter @PBPjasonlieser
