The Miami Heat won’t be back on the court until Monday, but the biggest question surrounding the team is the health of Dwyane Wade’s knees.
Over the last two years, not having Dwyane Wade in the lineup for a playoff game would have been cause for concern for the Miami Heat. This year, a much-deeper Heat squad had a message for the injured Wade, don’t worry, we’ll take care of this.
The brooms came out in Milwaukee for the Heat. The Lakers are mercifully done, wish Dwight Howard was too. The Fins got Gator happy in the final few rounds of the draft, so we’ll weigh on what they walked away with. And I do something many of you probably never thought I would, I defend Tim Tebow.
The Milwaukee Bucks have put forth a good effort, but they have proven no match for the Miami Heat in the NBA Playoffs. But one thing that could slow down the Heat’s march towards a championship repeat is Dwyane Wade’s knee.

Everyone knows LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, and most of the other Heat stars. But there’s a fan favorite who debuted with the team in late January who could be playing the biggest role of all for Miami, center Chris “Birdman” Andersen.
“We know we can play a better game.” Those words from Miami Heat superstar LeBron James should strike fear in every playoff opponent the Heat has this year.
A wet and messy morning greeted South Floridians as plenty of rain soaked the area. The rain came from a short wave of energy moving in from the Gulf of Mexico that took the showers and thunderstorms with it into the Atlantic waters, but the rain isn’t done with the area just yet.
Things have changed quite a bit for the Miami Heat in a little less than a year. Last season, they were the hunters looking to finally climb the proverbial mountain to a NBA Championship. This year, the Heat has become the hunted and the Heat are trying to enter into some very rare company.
The Miami Heat will begin the 16-game march to an NBA Championship on Sunday when they host the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
