Dwyane Wade will make his long-awaited return after mission the last nine games due to a pesky hamstring injury.
"He's going to be extremely winded, but we just hope he can come through the game and make strides and move forward and not have a setback," LeBron James said.
Greg Oden continues to be out and did not accompany the team on the two-game road trip. This is not because of his back spasms, rather he's the next Heat player to be stricken with a nasty stomach virus that has recently attacked Ray Allen and Udonis Haslem. Better this happen now than in the preseason, I suppose.
Justin Hamilton is also listed as inactive.
