Dwyane Wade hasn't worn his compression sleeve for two straight games. Why? I have no idea but I could guess. It probably has something to do with trying to break out of his shooting slump. I realize that makes no logical sense.

Wade had six points on 10 shots against the Clippers on Nov.14. It was the last time Wade has worn his sleeve.

Wade missed two straight games with a foot injury and returned ... sleeveless! He's averaging 23 points per game with the sleeve.

We won't know for certain until about 20 minutes before tipoff on Thursday, of course, but Erik Spoelstra has two main options here. The first is the more traditional play, moving Chris Bosh to power forward and inserting Udonis Haslem into the lineup at center. The second option is more likely: Move LeBron James to power forward and start Mike Miller at the three.

I think he still turns the ball over too much. That said, he's one of the toughest guards in the league. Love his game.

I think he'll miss the next two games. He's shooting for a return on Dec.4 at Washington. No rush.

As a lifelong Braves fan, I cannot.

If the Heat was meeting with President Obama on Dec.3, I would know by now. So, no.

The additions of Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis has, without question, made the Heat a better team. Both players are shooting over 52 percent from three-point range and Allen's late-game moxy has already accounted for two victories in the Heat's first 13 games. Beyond the offseason moves, the team is playing unselfish and confident basketball. All that pressure last season to win a title is gone. Statistically, the Heat leads the league in points per game (104.8), field-goal percentage (.494) and three-point field-goal percentage (.432). The Heat was the first Eastern Conference team to 10 wins and hasn't lost at home.

I'm going with Mike Miller. He's already started three games and inserting Miller into the starting lineup would not disrupt the Heat's second unit.

James Jones can come off the bench and knock down three-pointers after not playing for a month. There's your answer.

Sad, sad, sad. But since so little is understood about mental illness, and doctors really have no idea how to properly treat it, then I'm not expecting the general public to feel very sorry for the guy. No, I don't think he'll play this season, if ever.

Do people ever ask you how you have a job at this point?

^^ LOL ^^

I want to comment on the mental issness thing. I know Royce has Anexiety issues... But does he have anything else along with that? and how was he able to play basically every game at Iowa and now cant play in the NBA? I'll be honest im very ignorant when it comes to situations like this, all i hear is Royce saying he wants supports from the Rockets, but really what can the Rockets do? they already agreed that he can take a personal bus to games that are close, so that takes care of his flying issue, I dont think many teams in the NBA would have agreed to that. how else can you support a guy going through something such as mental illness?? call him everyday? can anyone enlighten me on this?

Most bizarre thing I have seen in sports in a while.

DAM snitty,

joel aint that bad, is he....

na, back to the serious side of things... we are just fine... we play at home against the spurs who might come out of the west... come to play... they will try to pound the ball down low... joel, harrellson, might be needed in this one... and guard the three point shot... parker has been hot lately... they are good... run them... have fun...

tryin to get tickets to the game.. off for the week.. watching all things heat.. 007..

Javier Bardem is the best bond villain in years.

Black your right.. They are going to try to push the ball down low first, or kill us from the 3pt line. Manu, was hot yesterday against the SPURS, Parker is always hot, and Green has been lights out from beyond the arc.. I definately agree with have Pittman, Harrellson, or even Joel (Yes Black, He is that bad!) step in at 5 for this game, have Bosh guard Duncan, and dont have the defense collapse so much and we'll win, too easy..
