The Miami Heat enter Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets with a record of 11-13, third in the Southeast Division. They are coming off a 93-75 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday. Dwyane Wade lead the Heat with 17 points in the loss. The Heat were without Chris Bosh due to a calf injury and he's expected to be out up to a few weeks.

As reported by  Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald, Bosh said he could be out for a while with a strained calf, an injury that he's unsure when it occurred. He mentioned it could be simple "wear and tear", but said he's going to err on the side of caution and sit out rather than risk a more serious injury.
"Usually you know when something gives and you kind of feel it over the course of a game and you can point to a specific play when you felt something tweak, or whatever, but unfortunately that didn't happen for me. I guess it's a wear and tear thing. It kind of sprung up on me, and you just have to deal with the tough times right now."
With Bosh out, expect Wade to be the go-to guy on offense, but Wade is hoping other guys can pick up the slack.
"If we have to play without Chris for a while, then hopefully no other guys will key on me and other guys will step up and make shots."
Bosh, in his 12th NBA season out of Georgia Tech, is averaging 21.6 points and 8.2 rebounds per game this season. The veteran center has played for the Raptors and Heat and has career averages of 19.2 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
