Game 9 - Nets vs. Heat - Saturday, January 7, 7:30 p.m.

On one hand, if you bought tickets to Saturday night's game, you may be disappointed to hear that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade probably won't play vs. the Nets. On the other hand, you may be a diehard Nets fan who wants a two-game winning streak.

No word yet on whether two of the Big Three will play, but they're considered doubtful. James (sprained left ankle) and Wade (bruised left foot) missed the Heat's triple overtime win over the Hawks on Thursday night, the the third member of the Big Three, Chris Bosh, starring with 33 points and 14 rebounds. Eric Spoelstra says, "We’re weighing everything, the schedule ahead, rest, how much treatment we can do and what the recovery time will be." The likelihood is that neither James nor Wade will play.

That's disappointing to Deron Williams. "I hope not," Williams said when asked if he thought James and Wade would miss the game.. "I like playing against them. I don’t want to beat a team when they’re down. I like when everybody’s out there. Hopefully those guys play. We’ll see where we’re at." The Nets have not announced the status of Mehmet Okur (back spasms) and Anthony Morrow (teeth).
