Although Erik Spoelstra isn't saying LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will play Saturday night vs. the Nets, indications are that the two superstars will be on the court.
"The fact that they were out there and going through the majority of the shootaround, that's encouraging," Spoelstra said. "They went through the majority of it ... we'll have to see how the little work we did today, how that affects them in the next few hours."
James (sprained left ankle) and Wade (bruised left foot) missed the Heat's triple overtime win over the Hawks on Thursday night. No word yet on the availability of Mehmet Okur (back spasms) and MarShon Brooks (sprained ankle) for the Nets. Damion James, awaiting an MRI on his foot, is out.
