BOSTON (Sporting Alert) — The Miami Heat will be without its “Big Three” for tonight’s NBA game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden.
Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will all miss the game.
Bosh is still recovering from a hamstring injury, while James and Wade, who is still recovering from a dislocated finger were left out of the team as well.
“It’s just precautionary,” Bosh said about the decision to not play with the hamstring in mind. “We want to make sure it doesn’t turn into a serious problem.”
The Heat (46-18), judging by the decision to rest these key players – are no longer interested in copping the to seed spot in the Eastern Conference, which is current being hold down by the Chicago Bulls.
The Celtics (37-27), meanwhile are expected to play similar like the one that was narrowly beaten by the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.
This means the likes of Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo could all sit out again.
