Heat Forward Chris Bosh Out with Injured Calf

Heat Forward Chris Bosh Out with Injured Calf

NIBA via Miami Heat(MIAMI) -- 

As the Miami Heat look to keep their heads above water in the Eastern Conference playoff race, they'll be without forward Chris Bosh for a few games, possibly more, after he suffered a calf strain.

Bosh missed the team's game against against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, which Miami wound up losing.

Even though he has yet to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, Bosh still plans to meet with a team doctor Monday to have the injury reevaluated.

"We're just trying to see how my body responds," said Bosh. "It's one of those things that can get worse, if you don't take care of it. It can be a lot worse than it has to be. So we have to take this precaution right now."

The Heat, who have made the NBA Finals the past four seasons, are off to their worst start in seven years, at 11-13.

A lot of the team's struggles can be traced back to Lebron James' departure back to Cleveland, as well as injuries to starters Dwayne Wade and Luol Deng.

Bosh is off to his best start since joining the Heat prior to the 2010-2011 season. He's averaging 21.6 points and 8.2 rebounds in 23 games.

Wizards Soar Past Heat, 107-86

Wizards Soar Past Heat, 107-86

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- The Washington Wizards hit 10 3-pointers and shot 54.2 percent (39-of-72) to beat the Miami Heat 107-86 on Monday night. The Wizards (11-5) led by 15 points at halftime, 64-49, and held Miami (9-8) to 0-of-12 shooting from distance in the second half.

"We did a good job of staying home and getting a hand in their face," Washington head coach Randy Wittman said. "They missed some, too. It wasn't all us. They had some pretty good looks they missed."

John Wall had 18 points and 13 assists in the win while Rasual Butler paced the team with 23 points. The Wizards never trailed in the game, leading by as many as 25, and saw four players score in double figures. 

Meanwhile, Miami got 21 points from Chris Bosh and 20 from Dwayne Wade. The Heat's shooting woes only escalated at the charity stripe as the team was just 18-for-30 (60 percent) on free-throw attempts.

"I don't think we've gotten to the defense we've wanted all year," said Wade, who was playing in his second game back following a hamstring injury. "We're still fairly new; a lot of the guys are still confused at what we're trying to do."

Curry Drops 40 on Heat

Curry Drops 40 on Heat

NBA via Golden State Warriors(MIAMI, Fl.) -- Stephen Curry lit up the Miami Heat Tuesday night as he led the Golden State Warriors to a 114-97 victory.

Curry finished the night shooting 12 of 19 from the floor, draining eight 3-pointers. 

There had been some concern in the past couple days with Curry's shooting as he was 8 of 24 in his previous two games. Curry steadied those worries by finding open looks with the help of his teammates. 

"Everything feels in rhythm," Curry said. "My bigs, Draymon Green, Mo Speights, Andrew Bogut set some great screens for me and I got a lot of space. When you see your first two or three go down, your confidence is at a high. Shots just appear and you have confidence to knock them down."

Heat forward Chris Bosh was utterly perplexed by the end result.  With 6:45 left in the fourth, his team was leading by two.

"We got to the end, we're in the bonus, you know 93-95 and we don't score anymore," Bosh said. "We just forget our offense and I don't know why."

The Warriors have now won six straight and are 11-2 on the season.

Luol Deng Responds to Ferry

Luol Deng Responds to Ferry

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Miami Heat forward Luol Deng responded to a recent scouting report that Hawks general manager Danny Ferry read during a June conference call.

Ferry and the Hawks pursued Deng before he signed with Miami last season and apologized on Monday for the racial comments he made in a letter that he sent to Hawks co-owner Michael Gearon Jr.

Deng released a statement on Tuesday.

'HE HAS A LITTLE AFRICAN IN HIM'

"Ultimately, I'm thankful to be with an organization that appreciates me for who I am and has gone out of its way to make me feel welcome."

"These words were recently used to describe me. It would ordinarily make any African parent proud to hear their child recognized for their heritage.

"I'm proud to say I actually have a lot of African in me, not just 'a little.' For my entire life, my identity has been a source of pride and strength. Among my family and friends, in my country of South Sudan and across the broader continent of Africa, I can think of no greater privilege than to do what I love for a living while also representing my heritage on the highest stage. Unfortunately, the comment about my heritage was not made with the same respect and appreciation.

"Concerning my free agency, the focus should purely have been on my professionalism and my ability as an athlete. Every person should have the right to be treated with respect and evaluated as an individual, rather than be reduced to a stereotype. I am saddened and disappointed that this way of thinking still exists today. I am even more disturbed that it was shared so freely in a business setting.

"However, there is comfort in knowing that there are people who aren't comfortable with it and have the courage to speak up. In the same way a generalization should not define a group of people, the attitude of a few should not define a whole organization or league.

Dwyane Wade: Had a Feeling James Was Leaving Miami

Dwyane Wade: Had a Feeling James Was Leaving Miami

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Heat forward Dwyane Wade wasn't surprised when his former teammate, LeBron James, told him that he'd be going back to Cleveland to play with the Cavaliers.

Wade said on Friday that he supported whatever decision James' was going to make, but had a feeling he'd be headed back to Cleveland.

"Yeah, I went to sleep knowing," Wade told reporters. "He called me the next day. But I knew then. Obviously he still had to say the final yay or nay, but I knew. I could tell."

"As his friend, I'm just supportive," Wade continued. "As crazy as that might sound, I'm supportive of my friends doing what makes them happy. Obviously, same thing with him in this situation. You've gotta do what makes you happy -- selfishly do what makes you happy. The decision to go back home was that."

The Heat brought in free agents Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts, and Danny Granger.  The team also resigned All-Star and two-time NBA champion Chris Bosh.

"It was a different summer for us," Wade said. "It's no secret, obviously; it's been a change in how we looked the last four years by losing LeBron to Cleveland. I think our ownership has done a great job so far of trying to not replace but recover from that. The only thing we do as a franchise and as players is we move forward."

Miami Heat Re-Sign Dwyane Wade

Miami Heat Re-Sign Dwyane Wade

Miami Heat/NBA(MIAMI) -- The Miami Heat has re-signed guard Dwyane Wade, the team announced on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Dwyane has been the franchise cornerstone for this team since the day he arrived 11 years ago,” Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement. “He has shown his commitment to the Heat many times over the course of his career and has always been willing to sacrifice in order to help build this team into a champion. This time is no different. I am ecstatic to have him back in the fold and I am confident that Dwyane, as always, will be leading this team as we look to contend for NBA Championships.”

Miami originally selected Wade out of Marquette with the fifth overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft. In 11 seasons with the Heat, Wade has averaged 24.3 points, 6.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds per game. The 10-time All-Star has won three NBA championships during his tenure.

The Heat also announced on Tuesday the signing of free agent forward Luol Deng.

ESPN: Heat Re-Sign Center Chris Andersen

Brian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Even without Lebron James suiting up for the Miami Heat next season, the team is committed to putting together a winning team as they've re-signed center Chris Andersen.

Andersen's new deal is worth two years and will pay him $10 million.

In two seasons with the Heat, the 36-year-old Andersen has resurrected his career with Miami. He's established himself as a reliable big man off the bench who has earned crunch time minutes with the team in the regular season and the playoffs.

In 72 games for the Heat this past season, Andersen averaged 6.6 points, 5.3 rebounds per game, and 1.3 blocks in 19.4 minutes per game.

Despite the free agent departure of James, the Heat have not been quiet this offseason. They've brought in Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger. The team has also resigned Chris Bosh, Andersen, and are expected to bring back Dwayne Wade and Udonis Haslem.

Lebron James Is Headed Back to Cavaliers

Lebron James Is Headed Back to Cavaliers

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- LeBron James is headed back to Cleveland, the four-time MVP announced on Friday in an article he wrote for Sports Illustrated.

James spent seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers before leaving for Miami in 2010. Following his departure, James made four NBA finals appearances and took home two NBA titles, with help from Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, for the Miami Heat.

The Heat made a last-pitch effort to lock in James Wednesday when team president Pat Riley met with James and his agent, Rich Paul, in Las Vegas.

Paul did most of the talking during this free agency process, compared to 2010. He also met with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns.

James joins a young Cleveland roster that includes Kyrie Irving, Anderson Varejao, and this year's number-one overall pick, Andrew Wiggins.

Heat Make Moves In Free Agency

Heat Make Moves In Free Agency

iStock/Thinkstock(MIAMI) -- Free agent forward Danny Granger has agreed to a two-year contract with the Miami Heat worth $4.2 million, according to ESPN.

The 31-year-old Granger split time last season between the Indiana Pacers and the Los Angeles Clippers, where he averaged 8.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game.  His best season came during the 2008-09 campaign, where he averaged 25.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game for the Pacers.

The Heat also has agreed to sign a deal with free agent forward Josh McRoberts. In seven seasons in the NBA, the 27-year-old has averaged 5.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. He has suited up for the Portland Trail Blazers, Pacers, Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets.

Report: Dwayne Wade and Udonis Haslem Opt Out of their Contracts

Chris Trotman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Big 3 just might be sticking together after all. According to reports, guard Dwyane Wade, and forward Udonis Haslem have opted out of their contracts and will become free agents.

On the surface, this might spell gloom and doom for Heat fans, but these moves could allow the team re-sign Lebron James, Chris Bosh, Wade, and possibly another high-level free agent.

Haslem is likely to re-sign with with the Heat, but on a more team-friendly deal. He was due to make $4.62 million next season.

The 34-year-old Haslem has spent his entire 11-year career, and has won three championships during his tenure in South Beach.

Wade is also a career member of the Heat organization. He's been with the team since they drafted him sixth overall back in 2003, the same year they selected Haslem.

Lebron James Opts out of Contract, Set for Free Agency

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Here we go again. Lebron James' agent, Rich Paul, has informed the Miami Heat that James will opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

While NBA fans may be salivating at the idea of landing arguably the best player in the NBA, opting out of his deal does not necessarily mean he will leave the Heat.

James had until June 30 to opt out of the final two years of his deal. He had $42.7 million remaining on his deal.

A four-time NBA MVP, James is one of the most transcendent players in the NBA and all of sports. In 11 NBA seasons, James has averaged 27.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game.

James spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He infamously chose to play for the Heat during the summer of 2010.

Now 29, James went to four-consecutive Finals with the Heat, and won two titles.

Spurs Stomp Heat, Take 3-1 Finals Lead

Spurs Stomp Heat, Take 3-1 Finals Lead

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(MIAMI, Fla.) -- Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and 14 rebounds while playing tremendous defense against LeBron James to help San Antonio dominate the Heat in a 107-86 win in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The Spurs now take a 3-1 lead in the series and are one win away from a world championship.

"I'm pleased that they performed as well as they did while we've been in Miami, and that's about as far as it goes," said San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. "Now we've got to go back home and play as well or better."

For the second straight game, San Antonio dominated, leading by as many as 24 points in the third quarter. The Spurs shot 57.1 percent from the floor as a team, including 9-for-21 from three-point distance. Miami, who had not lost at home this postseason prior to Game 3 on Tuesday, shot just 45 percent in the loss.

Despite 28 points from LeBron James, 19 of which came in the third quarter, the Heat were unable to find an answer defensively. Now they must do what no team has ever done, win an NBA Finals after trailing 3 games to 1. 

Tim Duncan surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most career playoff minutes (8,869) as well as Magic Johnson's all-time record for double-doubles in the postseason (158). Duncan has helped bring San Antonio all four world titles in franchise history, the most recent of which in 2007. He can add a fifth to his resume on Sunday when the team returns to San Antonio.
