Miami HEAT @MiamiHEAT

Udonis Haslem (illness) did not participate in today’s practice. He is questionable to travel with team this afternoon.

Injury report: Rodney Stuckey (sore right wrist) & CJ Miles (sprained right ankle) are questionable for tonight’s game. Paul George is out.

The Rockets may have the higher seed over the Spurs, but ESPN's Tim Legler and Chris Broussard believe it'd be an upset if Houston beat San Antonio.


LeBron a leader in Cleveland
