Miami Heat InjuriesUp to the minute news on Miami Heat Injuries
Dwyane Wade ended up sitting out 28 games this season after missing a combined 36 in the first three seasons with LeBron James as a teammate. But Wade enters these playoffs in a much better place, from a health perspective, than last year, when a knee injury lingered throughout the postseason.
Q: It's comical how some fans are blaming Erik Spoelstra for everything that has gone wrong. This is on the players and injuries (can't control that). But perspective people, it's just a seeding . . . all is not lost yet (so we hope). The real season starts this weekend. Also, is it really on Spo that Norris Cole regressed this season? That Mario Chalmers still can't turn the corner to that next level of a veteran consistent point guard? That Dwyane Wade was injured? That Chris Bosh all of sudden became a Euro Big man (well, maybe he could have coached that differently)? That Greg Oden did...

Dwyane Wade returned to the starting lineup Saturday night in Atlanta for the Heat’s penultimate road game of the regular season after missing nine consecutive games with a hamstring injury.
ATLANTA -- After missing nine games over a stretch of three weeks, Dwyane Wade knew he’d face plenty of questions Saturday in his return from a nagging hamstring injury. Among the least of his concerns were the inquiries about rhythm. With the two-time defending champion Miami Heat a week away from starting the playoffs, Wade brushed off suggestions he might initially struggle to reestablish the timing and continuity he’s had with LeBron James and Chris Bosh when the team performs at its best.

Is Michael Beasley done? It looks that way in the short term, but Miami coach Erik Spoelstra has not ruled out the possibility of Beasley breaking back into the rotation for the playoffs. Even with the roster battered by injuries, Beasley has barely played lately. He has been a DNP-CD the past four games and has not gotten more than six minutes since March 24. When asked what is keeping Beasley on the bench at a time when the Heat are hurting for healthy bodies, Spoelstra answered, “Nothing really.” “He’s fully on board with this team,” Spoelstra said tonight before Miami hosted...

MIAMI – About two hours before the start of Friday’s game, Dwyane Wade pushed himself through a rigorous workout on the AmericanAirlines Arena court that offered the only recent glimpse of progress amid his most extensive injury absence of the season. The Miami Heat certainly could have used a few of those shots on a night they ultimately ran out of firepower in a 122-121 double-overtime loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. In a game that saw the teams combine for 243 points, 192 shot attempts in 58 minutes and 21 lead changes before the final buzzer, there was another number that...
The good news for the Knicks: Carmelo Anthony insisted Saturday that the shoulder injury he aggravated Friday night won't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Heat.
It wasnt intended as a shot at Dwyane Wade, but LeBron James also wasnt interested in addressing his teammates lingering hamstring injury and what it might mean for the Heat during the final weeks of the regular season.

Dwyane Wade is getting better, but still is not ready to rejoin the Heat. Wade will miss his fourth game in a row because of a strained left hamstring when Miami hosts Milwaukee tonight (7:30 p.m., Sun Sports), matching his most prolonged absence of the season. This will be his 22nd missed game this year. Wade suffered the injury late in last Wednesday’s game at Indiana and has not been able to fully practice since then. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said he is improving gradually. Toney Douglas will start for him tonight. The Heat will get Ray Allen back in the lineup after he missed four...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Miami Heat really needed a win Friday night and the Detroit Pistons really needed a loss and, in a nice harmony, they both got one. The Heat were 7-8 in March heading into a road weekend against the Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks, and are dealing with a rash of injuries that had them dusting off the end of the bench just to field a starting lineup. They were missing three starters and their top sub as Dwyane Wade, Mario Chalmers, Greg Oden and Ray Allen were all out.
It was a special night in Heat center Greg Odens career, considering the injuries he has overcome to return to the NBA.
INDIANAPOLIS -- LeBron James was frustrated with the officiating, Chris Bosh questioned the late-game offensive execution and the Miami Heat had to cope without Dwyane Wade because of an injury. These issues sound familiar? They should. Because a season’s worth of issues the Heat have struggled to overcome for months combined to derail them in one night on the way to Wednesday’s 84-83 loss to the Indiana Pacers. The biggest source of the Heat’s frustrations was the physical play they felt benefited the Pacers.
The No. 1 overall pick of the 2007 NBA draft has overcome a series of injuries to become a contributor with the Miami Heat.
MIAMI -- Just a couple of years removed from having doubts he'd ever play in the NBA again, Greg Oden will play Monday against his former team, the Portland Trail Blazers. Not only will Oden play, but Heat coach Erik Spoelstra indicated after Monday's shootaround that Oden would get his fifth start of the season. The Blazers, in fifth place in a loaded Western Conference, drafted Oden No. 1 overall in 2007 but injuries limited the promising big man to 82 games before he was waived in 2012.
After fighting injuries and surgeries that kept him out of the NBA for more than four years, Greg Oden has made it back with the Heat and is out to prove he still has the skills that made him the leagues No. 1 draft pick in 2007.
