Got tix to go see the Knicks play the Heat in Miami tonight? Good for you. GO SCALP THEM NOW! For the second straight game, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade (and Mario Chalmers, too!) will ride the pine for the Heat because of "minor nicks." The superstars, who both sat out of Sunday's Heat game against the Spurs and got killed for it in the media, are dealing with nagging injuries right now that will prevent them from suiting up. But, Heat coach Erik Spolestra doesn't sound too worried.
"We're not panicked about it," Spoelstra said. "We're being very proactive and aggressive with the treatment and rehab, just to make sure we can contain their injuries where they are."
Bron-Bron has a tight hamstring that he's resting, while Wade and Chalmers are both working their way through ankle sprains. And, as for you? Well, if you've got decent seats to tonight's game that you can't pawn off on some sap who hasn't heard the bad news yet, then you've got SOL syndrome. Enjoy watching Udonis Haslem and Joel Anthony all night, son!
