No Timetable For Dwyane Wade’s Return; Likely Out For “Extended Period”

Dwyane Wade

This has to be frustrating for the Miami Heat. The team’s underwhelming play this season is hardly due to substandard performance from Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh, but related to a rash of injuries to ancillary players first and foremost. The Heat’s stars haven’t only played up to optimistic preseason levels, but also remained relatively healthy – until now. After Wade suffered a hamstring strain in Miami’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, there’s no timetable for his return to the floor and a report says he could miss “an extended period.” Read More »

Dwyane Wade Exits Heat’s Loss To Bucks With Hamstring Injury

Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade’s knees are holding up just fine in 2014-2015, and his shoulder hasn’t been a problem for years. But another nagging issue has been plaguing the Miami Heat superstar this season – hamstring pain. The three-time champion left his team’s 109-102 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday early in the third quarter with a right hamstring strain and didn’t return. Read More »

Dion Waiters, Chris Bosh

Dion Waiters forgot how important it is in the game of basketball to prevent your opponent from scoring. That, or he and Kevin Durant simply miscommunicated – we prefer the former scenario. Watch Waiters suddenly abandon Chris Bosh on the block and allow the big man an uncontested slam in tonight’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat. Read More »

Report: Heat Are Eyeing Brook Lopez In A Trade

Chris Bosh, Brook Lopez

If this rumor had confronted the masses a year ago, everyone would have lost their mind because last year’s Heat team really needed a big man. This year, Miami is obviously without LeBron, and nobody expects them to challenge for much of anything — even in the East. Still, ESPN New York’s Ohm Youngmisuk says the Heat are interested in Nets big man Brook Lopez, one of Brooklyn’s three stars they’re looking to unload in a fire sale before ownership changes hands.

Rick Ross Got A Miami Heat Logo Tattooed To His Face

Rick Ross

The Heat really miss LeBron James. They’re currently 15-20 and both Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh have missed time due to injuries. Josh McRoberts is done for the year with a torn ligament in his right knee, and its not clear if the Heat will even make the playoffs. That didn’t stop the titular head of Maybach Music Group from inking his face with his hometown team’s logo, though. Rick Ross tattooed the Heat’s halo’d flaming basketball logo right on his face, proving he’s a die-hard fan and more than a little crazy. Read More »
