Rasual Butler is no longer in the league. Ennis just ended him.

Shandel Richardson

Bury Rasual Butler next to Jason Terry.

Tom Haberstroh

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH MY

Ethan J. Skolnick

James Ennis just made SportsCenter.

Tom Haberstroh

JAMES ENNIS OHHHHH MYYYYY

Tom Haberstroh

Heard from press row: "Wait, Rasual Butler???"

Ira Winderman

James Ennis just did something, somehow, that resulted in two points. Two rookies on the court to start the fourth. For the Heat.

Ethan J. Skolnick

James Ennis w/ his first NBA basket. And it's loud in here.

Tom Haberstroh

Dwyane Wade bruised left calf, probable to return. Woo boy.

Ira Winderman

Wade listed with a left calf contusion and is probable to return.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade has a left calf contusion & is probable to return. Heat lead Wizards, 72-70 in fourth.

Joseph Goodman

Wade left calf. Probable to return.

Jason Lieser

Wade suffered a bruised L calf on the scrum. Not a knee issue. He is expected to return.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 72, Wizards 70 entering the FOURTH and final quarter.

Jason Lieser

End Q3: Heat 72, Wizards 70. Bosh has 19p, Norris Cole with 20. Wade is in the locker room with an apparent L leg injury.

Ira Winderman

Heat 72, Wizards 70 going into the fourth. Bosh scoreless in third, still with 19. Wade 4 of 11, and with an ailing calf.

Tom Haberstroh

Wade was driving in transition and fumbled the ball. Pierce, Wade and Wall hit the deck to get it. Wade immediately grabbed left calf.

Shandel Richardson

After strong start, Bosh scoreless in third quarter.

Surya Fernandez

Heat absolutely need some scoring from Ennis and Napier (0 points combined) right about now.

Shandel Richardson

When do we see the first "Wade's knee" Twitter handle?

Joseph Goodman

Spoelstra called a timeout to get Wade out of the game. Wade went directly to the locker room.

Shandel Richardson

Wade heads to locker room during timeout.

Surya Fernandez

Wade calls the timeout as soon as the Heat secure the jump ball and heads straight to the locker room.

Tom Haberstroh

Dwyane Wade calling out. Limping to the locker room with what looks like a leg injury. Went down on last play.

Ira Winderman

Well, at least the Heat have a variety of . . . uh . . . shooting guards in reserve.

Jason Lieser

Wade limps to the bench after a hard fall to the floor. He leaves for the locker room.

Ira Winderman

And we have the first Wade injury of the season . . .?

Joseph Goodman

Dwyane Wade on his feet and limping after a few painful moments on the court. Looks like a left leg injury. He's calling for a sub.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade in pain, struggling to walk, bending over, but staying in.

Shandel Richardson

Wade back up. Appears fine.

Surya Fernandez

Wade slow to get up. Hard to tell if he needed the breather or if he's in real pain.

Jason Lieser

In his first game as Miami's starting PG, Norris Cole ties his career high at 20p. He's 8/14 FGs.

Tom Haberstroh

Norris Cole ties career-high with 20 points.

Shandel Richardson

And down goes Dwyane Wade.

Shandel Richardson

Cole said the goal this season was proving he was a "scoring" guard. Making his case so far.

Joseph Goodman

Norris Cole with 18 points, so that's working out.

Shandel Richardson

Shannon Brown, who on the second day of camp was declared the backup SG, has yet to play.

Shandel Richardson

I think I just saw Luol Deng wearing a Wolverine costume on the Jumbotron.

Jason Lieser

Chris Andersen just appeared on the Jumbotron dressed in a Bane outfit and dancing to Thriller. Just a normal night here.

Shandel Richardson

And just like that John Wall puts the Wizards back in front.

Surya Fernandez

Wade with the hockey assist from the floor as Cole knocks down another jumper.

Shandel Richardson

This has to be a confidence-builder for Norris Cole.

Shandel Richardson

For those asking, the seats aren't empty at AAA. Fans still returning from halftime.

Surya Fernandez

Cole is playing aggressively in the 13th start of his career. Strong move to the basket to reach 14 points.

Joseph Goodman

You know what #HeatNation needs right now? Free rum.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Norris Cole has done a lot of iffy things, and a lot of positive things tonight. Which seems like it will be a nightly occurrence.

Ira Winderman

Norris Cole more than holding his own in the scoring column with John Wall. Who saw that coming?

Joseph Goodman

Of course, I guess that's an assumption until McRoberts actually plays.

Joseph Goodman

Shawne Williams with his first basket. He's 1 of 8. Lotta tweets about Nene and Beal being out, but Heat really missing Josh McRoberts.

Surya Fernandez

During halftime, make sure to check out "Heat vs. Wizards sights and sounds" foxsports.com/florida/story/… via @SunSportsFOXFL

Joseph Goodman

Love it. RT @CorkGaines Such a weird giveaway for the Hornets. Looks like a minor league baseball team had a "prom night"

Surya Fernandez

Halftime of Heat vs Wizards: Bosh leads all scorers with 19 points, 16 of them in the second quarter alone.

Jason Lieser

Heat shot 43% in the first half, 5/18 from 3. Bosh & Cole combined to go 5/9 on 3s.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 53, Wizards 52 at the half. Bosh with 19 pts.

Ira Winderman

Heat 53, Wizards 52 at half. Bosh with 19 poiints, five rebounds.

Jason Lieser

HALF: Heat 53, Wizards 52. Bosh hurting Gortat from the outside and everyone else in the post. He has 19p on 6/9, 5r.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Sloppy but entertaining first half in Miami. Bosh w/ 19, Pierce w/ 11 and Heat lead Wizards, 53-52.

Ira Winderman

Chris Bosh . . . from everywhere, now with 19.

Shandel Richardson

Paul Pierce was an awesome addition to the Wizards.

Ira Winderman

Drew Gooden with 13. Who saw that coming? (Except Drew?)

Surya Fernandez

Cole is now the second Heat player after Bosh to reach double-digits in points in the first half.

Ira Winderman

Wade has his moment. He needed that. Nice over-the-top feed from Deng.

Shandel Richardson

That was almost one of John Wall's special blocks.

Ira Winderman

Remember, these are the Wizards without Bradley Beal and Nene.

Surya Fernandez

Shawne Williams struggling so far with just 1 point. He's missed all six of his shots, five of them from 3-point territory.

Shandel Richardson

Shawne Williams isn't stretching the floor much tonight.

Jason Lieser

Bosh averaged 32 min/game last year. Looks like he'll get about 19 in the first half tonight.

Ira Winderman

Make that 0 for 6 from field and 0 for 5 on 3-pointers for Shawne Williams.

Shandel Richardson

So John Wall and Paul Pierce blow by Luol Deng on consecutive possessions.

Ira Winderman

Things you didn't hear the last four years: Can the Heat survive with Chris Bosh out of the game?

Joseph Goodman

Bosh at 16 points with 5:30 left in the second quarter. He averaged 16 points per game last year.

Surya Fernandez

Bosh now has 16 points (5/8 FGs), 5 rebounds and 2 assists in 16 minutes.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 4 of 14 from three-point range after that triple from Bosh. Heat 39, Wizards 37

Tom Haberstroh

Bosh had the same foul rate in the post as Dwight Howard and they were *trying* to foul Dwight.

Jason Lieser

Bosh rolling with 16p on 5/8 (2/3 threes) and 5r in his first 15 min.

Shandel Richardson

The last four years were the best thing that could happen for Bosh.Allowed him time to add to game while never forgetting about the post

Ira Winderman

Shawne Williams now 0 for 5 from field, 0 for 4 on 3-pointers.

Tom Haberstroh

As I noted today -- es.pn/1vgf0q4 -- Bosh was NBA's most efficient post player before Miami.

Jason Lieser

Deng (foot strain) will check back in at the next break.

Joseph Goodman

Deng out with a "slight right foot sprain." He will likely return, according to the Heat.

Shandel Richardson

They are Rakim's "Don't Sweat The Technique" but Andre Miller is only player on court old enough to remember the song.

Ira Winderman

Heat listing Luol Deng with a strained right foot, expected to return.

Jason Jackson

UPDATE: @Luol Deng is out with a slight right foot sprain … his return is likely #HEATLive

Tom Haberstroh

Feel like Chris Bosh is going to be the James Harden of bigs this season. Drawing tons of foul calls.

Ira Winderman

Chris Bosh might get a gazillion free throws this season.

Jason Lieser

Kris Humphries & Chris Andersen with a little conversation. Just complimenting each other's hair.

Bill Reiter

Just doubled down on my $100 bet with Giants fan @Gary Payton. I've got the Royals. Take the crown - & GP's money.

Ira Winderman

Chris Bosh going at Kris Humphries as if he wants his wedding gift back.

Shandel Richardson

I would say that drive reminded me of Chris Bosh in Toronto, but he doesn't like that label anymore.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wizards lead 28-22 after first quarter. Pierce fitting in nicely so far.

Ira Winderman

Wizards 28, Heat 22 at end of first. Spoelstra dared go an extended stretch without Wade or Bosh on court. Paid for it.

Jason Lieser

Heat shot 36% in Q1, including 3/11 threes.

Shandel Richardson

Shabazz Napier vs. Andre Miller is like being that kid on playground getting run on the adult side of court for the first time.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Wizards 28, Heat 22. Deng: 6p, 2r. Bosh: 3p, 3r. Cole: 8p, 1a. Gortat leads WAS with 8p

Jason Lieser

Shabazz Napier makes his NBA debut, checks in for Norris Cole with :45 left in Q1.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Two rookies, Ennis & Napier, are both in the opening-night rotation. That hasn't happened since 2008.
