With Wade not suiting up tonight, backup Toney Douglas should get the start along with Ray Allen getting the majority of the minutes off the bench. The Cavs will be shorthanded tonight without Kyrie Irving and Luol Deng, so Wade's service may not be needed. Along with Douglas expected to start tonight, Greg Oden will get his second straight start at center.

If Wade can keep his knee issues under check and be full throttle for the playoffs - watch out. Because a healthy Heat squad will be the biggest obstacle any team can face come playoff time.
The Heat are currently second in the Eastern Conference with a record of 45-19.
