TORONTO -- Miami coach Erik Spoelstra is resting LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for the Heat's final regular-season game.

The Heat are locked into the second seed in the East and host Philadelphia in their playoff opener on Saturday.

Miami also is without forward Mike Miller, who sat out the second half of Sunday's win over Boston with a sore left thumb and injured his left ankle in Monday's victory over Atlanta.

Mike Bibby, Eddie House, James Jones, Joel Anthony and Zydrunas Ilgauskas started at Toronto on Wednesday night.
