Wade, Bosh, Allen all could be out for Heat vs. Clippers Friday

If you paid a lot of money to see the Heat and Clippers in an All-Star battle Friday night, I’d hold my breath.

The good news is the Clippers could be getting Chris Paul back — their MVP candidate is a game time decision, but it is thought he will play. Not so much for Blake Griffin, but Paul seems ready to go.

However the Heat team CP3 and the Clippers take on could be very short handed. Here is the tweet from the Heat’s official twitter account.

Things like the flu tend to go through a team almost like they do a school classroom — a lot of people together many hours, often in confined spaces. That seems to be the case with the Heat.

There are a whole lot of game-time decisions in this game, we’ll update you close to game time on who actually suited up.

    Good think the self proclaimed top 10 point guard, Mario Chalmers, is healthy. They’ll need him to pick up the scoring lost from self proclaimed future Hall of Famer Chris Bosh. The question is who is going to pick up Bosh Spice’s 2 rebounds a game?
    The Heat’s arrogance is actually quite humorous!

      Shouldn’t you be planning your party for the Knicks’ 1st round ouster yet again?

      New Yawk: capital of arrogance.

      this kid is such a miserable troll…the knicks playoff success is actually quite humorous but not as humorous as your arrogance of the game of basketball. let your team win a playoff series before you start ripping the champs

      • cantonbound13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:40 PM

        @ Heat,buffalo & Jimbo, aka the 3 stooges, I just have 1 word for you clowns: ASTERISK!

      • buffalowned - Feb 8, 2013 at 4:44 PM

        i’m not sure what you mean by that…if you’re referring to the heat’s championship you can look it up and you won’t find one…other than the ones given by miserable fans like yourself and reggie evans. blows my mind how much you rip on the heat when the knicks are just a failed version to copy the heat and celtics. i feel like you don’t have much going for you in life so if placing your own personal asterisk on the heat’s championship makes you feel better go right ahead

    Bummer, but hopefully they’ll meet again at full strength in the FINALS!

    How much will they be fined

  5. dls612 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:07 PM

    Well if those guys are not available, LeBron bout to show everyone why he’s the best player in the NBA!

    • dannymac17 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:36 PM

      And CP3 will make everyone realize how great he really is.

      • jimeejohnson - Feb 8, 2013 at 2:07 PM

        Whoever doesn’t realize that already doesn’t know theet!

    • dangernearing - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:37 PM

      And you’ll be 1st on the board (under another alias) crying abt how they were short -handed and thats why they were blown out. We’ll see

      • heat256 - Feb 8, 2013 at 2:21 PM

        I am of the opinion they would probably lose even if Wade and Bosh played, to be honest. Their defensive intensity is just not there yet, and they can’t coast by thinking it’ll magically reappear in the playoffs. I’d love to see them go out and absolutely destroy a top tier team just as an FU to all the detractors, but that just isn’t their way. So we have to deal with a rollercoaster effort until April. Yay.

    The icy cold death of the Northeast kills those germs, unlike the warm, tropical goodness of South Florida. Go figure.

    Still looking forward to some of the other in-game match ups… i will be there enjoying myself… as usual!

    Uh oh. I smell a David Stern fine coming…
