Heat will rest LeBron James, Chris Bosh for final regular season game vs 76ers

Mike Ehrmann

Greg Oden may play tonight but two of the Heat's Big 3 will sit out in anticipation of the playoffs.

The Miami Heat have announced that LeBron James and Chris Bosh will both rest tonight and have been held out of tonight's regular season finale at the AmericanAirlines Arena against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Greg Oden is listed as a game time decision for tonight. He has not played since March 26 in a game against the Indiana Pacers, first because of back spasms and then due to a stomach virus. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra will surely track his progress tonight to determine if he has a place on the playoff rotation.

Dwyane Wade is expected to play his third straight game as he continues to work his way back into shape after missing several games due to a hamstring injury.

The Heat have settled into the #2 seed and will await the results as they play tonight to find out if they face the Charlotte Bobcats or the Washington Wizards in the first round.
