The Heat held Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng out of full-contact practice this morning, making them questionable at best for Thursday’s home game against the Clippers. It seems unlikely they will play prior to going through a full practice. Wade has been out three games with a strained left hamstring and began doing shooting drills Monday. Deng sprained his right wrist Sunday and has had pain when shooting the ball. Palm Beach Post

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. New York Post

Dwyane Wade, who had hoped to play in all of the Heat’s games this season, missed his second consecutive game with a strained left hamstring on Sunday and said he doesn’t know whether he will be able to play Monday at Brooklyn. “It’s day by day,” said Wade, who traveled with the team to Brooklyn, according to coach Erik Spoelstra. Though the Heat doesn’t want to put a timetable on it, a similar injury sidelined Wade for nine games last season. Miami Herald

“He is doing a lot more corrective exercises, some strength training with it and treatment,” Spoelstra said. “That is all you can do right now. We will take the next step when we can get there.” When Wade missed Friday’s game at Atlanta, Spoelstra started James Ennis because the coach wanted Mario Chalmers with “the second unit [to] keep that unit somewhat the same.” Miami Herald

As far as Wade is concerned, there was a time when Cuban thought the Miami guard was nothing more than a self-promoting prima donna, albeit a very talented one. That's changed, he said. "Not anymore," Cuban said when asked if he dislikes Wade. "At the beginning, I did because I think he thought he was entitled to everything that happened in that (2006) series. But it's been eight years. I mean, I take a little bit of joy in games where he doesn't go to the free throw line. But I like D-Wade now. He's a guy who does a lot of good things off the court and I have to respect that. "But if you'd have asked me eight years ago, it would have been a different answer. There was a time I did a commercial and he was there. He walked out of the room so I wouldn't see him. I walked out a different door so I wouldn't have to talk to him." Dallas Morning News

"I give him credit off the court," he said. "He's gone from flash to being a good representative of the NBA. I respect that. He seems to be more about family and community. He went through some off-the-court hardships, I guess. But yeah, I have a lot of respect for him now. I think he and LeBron helped each other grow up. I don't hold a lot of animosity at all."

Enter Bosh, who neither is a captain nor boisterous by nature. He sees no need to tread on the tradition Wade and Haslem hold with the franchise. "I'm fine with that," he says of the two standing as captains. "They've been here the longest. They know way more than I do about this culture and organization." But to lead in the boxscore, as Bosh must this season, he recognizes he must lead elsewhere, as well, even if it is not perceived as part of his personality. "It's something I always work on," Bosh says of shedding his reserved nature. "My wife pushes me every day." South Florida Sun-Sentinel
