Solid start by Wade with six points in the first four minutes of the game.

Jason Lieser

Bosh with the play of the preseason. Hacked hard, flips up a no-look shot that bounces on the top of the backboard and drops in. And one.

Ira Winderman

Bosh, over his head, off top of the backboard, in the basket, with an and-one bonus of a foul. Coming to a SportsCenter near you.

Surya Fernandez

I'm not exactly sure how Bosh's wild shot went in but it did.

Bill Reiter

I was remarkably calm until that first pitch. The nerves have set in.

Bill Reiter

Really, really cool to see my @FOXSports1 colleagues @gabekapler, @TheBigHurt_35 & @kevinburkhardt on @foxtv at the K tonight.

Good test run for Rockets & Heat tonight. Both teams playing regular starters, rotation, w/ exception of McRoberts' absence for Miami.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh. #Rockets starters: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, T. Jones, Howard.

Ira Winderman

Rockets starting Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, Trevor Ariza, James Harden, Patrick Beverly. 8 p.m., TNT.

Joseph Goodman

S.Williams will be replaced when J.McRoberts comes on line, of course, but Williams already appears to be an important piece for the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Also looks like Shawne Williams will start opening night, next Wednesday vs. Wizards, if McRoberts isn't back, and even then, possibly so.

Joseph Goodman

If tonight is the Heat's dress rehearsal for opening night...Shawne Williams has come a long way. Congrats to him.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers started preseason opener, hasn't started at point guard in six games since

Jason Lieser

Heat also starting Shawne Williams again at PF. Seems to be their guy until Josh McRoberts is back.

Joseph Goodman

Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.

Ira Winderman

Norris Cole again starts in place of Chalmers at point guard. Also starting: Chris Bosh, Shawne Williams, Luol Deng and Dwyane Wade.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra on Hamilton: He's playable. It depends on how it plays. He's been doing everything for the last month. He just hasn't done contact

Jason Lieser

Heat will start Norris Cole tonight for 6th time in 7 preseason games.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra: "Josh McRoberts is not playing. Everybody else is active."

Joseph Goodman

If Norris Cole doesn't start due to tightness in his back, I'm wondering aloud if Spoelstra would go with Napier as the starter.

Joseph Goodman

Norris Cole has a "tight back," according to Spoelstra.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Justin Hamilton (heart procedure) is available to play tonight, which would be his preseason debut.

Jason Lieser

Justin Hamilton is able to play tonight, would be first time since heart operation.

Joseph Goodman

Heat center Justin Hamilton is active for tonight's game.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says McRoberts has been doing some of practices, but still not playing, "We're being patient and diligent with this."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Erik Spoelstra says Josh McRoberts believes he is ready to play for Heat, but team still holding him out.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says Josh McRoberts wanted to play tonight. "We're being patient."

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra rules out Josh McRoberts (toe) for tonight's game.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Cole likely to start, but has been dealing with a back issue. McRoberts out, Larry Drew won't play.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra gives no starting lineup but swears he's not playing coy.

Ira Winderman

NBA did not go like Major League Baseball with live officials in place at replay center. It seems like hire six more, make calls quickly.

Ira Winderman

Surprised to learn that no calls will be made out of NBA replay center. All calls still made by referees on floor.

Erik Spoelstra on dealing with roster turnover: "That's the life we chose... I'm going on my 20th year here."

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says Josh McRoberts (toe) felt ready & wanted to practice yesterday, but staff held him out.

Jason Lieser

Bosh says he was a lesser player in Toronto than he is now. Going back to Toronto Chris Bosh would be regression.

Jason Lieser

Bosh on Houston: "They're a title contender with or without me."

Jason Lieser

Bosh: "I consider myself a decently smart person."

LeBron on Derrick Rose: "I'm not surprised at all. As a league, as a fan, it's great to have him back playing at a high level."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Joakim Noah, 4 his (unusual) praise of Heat, did add this about Deng's situation: "Hopefully, it's not THAT good. But I love him to death."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Joakim Noah on his "big brother" @Luol Deng .... "I'm happy for him. He's in a great situation, a great organization."

Ethan J. Skolnick

.... (2/2) Gasol said he was honored by Bosh & Wade reaching out to him, and that he spoke to LeBron, who never told him not to go to Miami.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoke at length to Pau Gasol about his recruitment by Heat. He says their situation was too "unclear" at time he made decision... (1/2)

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavaliers beat Bulls in 1st look at each other. But the story was Derrick Rose (30 points), electric on 2nd night of back-to-back.

Derrick Rose w/ 20 at the half in Columbus. No one on the Cavaliers can guard him (they haven't tried LeBron yet).

Ethan J. Skolnick

Ohio State marching band playing at halftime here in Columbus. I"m going to see if I can find Terry Porter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

No way of knowing if this will last.... but Derrick Rose looks 2011 fast tonight.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Aaron Brooks is the new DJ Augustin who was the new Nate Robinson who was the new John Lucas III who was the new CJ Watson.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Curious how Thibodeau will use all this depth.... especially when he's using Jimmy Butler (not available tonight) for 48 minutes.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Joakim Noah receives roughly the same reception in Columbus, Ohio, that he does in Miami. So that's something in common.

Ira Winderman

Tyler Johnson has $75K guarantee, Khem Birch $50K, so Heat keeping either on the opening-night roster would not cost extra in short run.

Surya Fernandez

My latest: The growth of Shabazz Napier gives the #Heat a good problem to have: plenty of guard depth foxsports.com/florida/story/… @SunSportsFOXFL

Tom Thibodeau says Jimmy Butler (wrist) is day to day. Won't play tonight vs Cavaliers in Columbus. Both teams playing most regulars.

LeBron is both the best basketball player on earth and one of the smartest people out there at now understanding his brand and managing it.
