Heat Could Be Without Key Players Wednesday Versus Bucks


The Bucks and Heat face off for the second time in four days tonight, and Miami could again be without a few of its key contributors. Per Associated Press Heat beat writer Tim Reynolds, Dwyane Wade and Greg Oden are doubtful to play, while LeBron James (back) and Ray Allen may also sit out:

Allen has not played since Mar. 24 due to an illness, while Wade has missed the last three games after tweaking his hamstring during last week’s loss to the Pacers. Oden is coping with back pain and an absence would be his fourth straight. James is the most likely of the four to play Wednesday, though all signs point to Miami resting its superstar for at least a game or two prior to the start of the playoffs.

Wednesday’s action tips off from AmericanAirlines Arena at 6:30 PM Central.
