AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Here is the Heat's official statement on Dwyane Wade being suspended for tonight's game against the Pistons.
Kickoff at 7:30 p.m. on Sun Sports -- and also on 790 (and now 104.3 FM!) The Ticket.
While we accept the decision of the NBA regarding Dwyane Wade, we do not agree with it.
In his 10 years in the league, Dwyane has never been suspended, and has been an exemplary player and positive influence to his teammates and fans and we have been honored to have him as part of the Miami Heat family.
Unfortunately, he is the type of player, along with other players on our roster, that defenses take privileges with.
We stand with Dwyane and support him in this situation and have made our feelings known to the league office.
