The Miami Heat have nothing left to play for in the regular season other than pride, and that’s going to likely be shelved and saved for a postseason in which they’ll need as much as they can muster. The season finale against the Philadelphia 76ers will not feature LeBron James or Chris Bosh as expected, but not every member of the Big Three is being held out.
According to the Palm Beach Post, the Heat and head coach Erik Spoelstra are hoping that Dwyane Wade is healthy enough to play because if is, he’s in.
"With nothing at stake as far as the playoffs are concerned, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra will rest LeBron James and Chris Bosh in tonight’s game against Philadelphia (8:00 p.m., Sun Sports). He hopes to play Dwyane Wade if he is available."
If he plays int he finale, it may not be for long but the Heat would deb using the opportunity to fine tune Wade after he’s suffered from injuries all season long. The rust can’t be present at all in the postseason as the Eastern Conference is more dangerous than it has been in years past.
