Yes, the Miami Heat are going to do it. Even after he turned his back on the franchise after four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals. Even after he gave every indication he would be returning as a free agent. Even after he defected from South Beach to...

NEW YORK -- Dion Waiters admitted to sneaking a few peeks in the crowd to see Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton.
The looks that the reserve guard had at the basket were even more important for the surging Cleveland Cavaliers.
Waiters scored a...

Heat guard Norris Cole and forward Luol Deng moved a step closer to returning to the court.
Both were able to complete Saturday's practice, a day before the Heat faces the Memphis Grizzlies at FedEx Forum.
"I'm feeling better, a lot better," Cole said....

The other injury updates have been pretty much straightforward: Dwyane Wade was waiting out a strained left hamstring, Norris Cole is playing through a dislocated left middle finger, Chris Andersen will be out a while with a sprained right ankle.

Q: Norris Cole for Dion Waiters. Beneficial for both teams. Good backup at shooting guard for the Heat, plus more and consistent minutes for Shabazz Napier. Would you go for it if you were to decide for Miami? How about if for Cavs? Is this possible? --...

Q: Clearly the Heat need help, when Dwyane Wade is out. There is just not enough depth. I don't expect Chris Bosh to stay in a slump, but the team can't hit a free throw to save their lives. I thought the James Ennis played well enough to give him more...

Q: Ira, I don't know if Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts are more Greg Oden or Mike Miller? Do the Heat sign healthy free agents? -- Steve, Miami.
A: They sign players they believe eventually can contribute. With Miller, even after his initial injury...

The triple-double that LeBron James recorded Monday night has been erased.
Instead of the 32 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists he apparently had in the Cleveland Cavaliers' victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, he now officially had 32 points, 11...

By the end, the patience had run thin, razor thin.
The patience with a teammate who wasn't there for 28 games during the regular season.
The patience with a center who at times came up small.
The patience for a coach who ran the same defensive...

First things first: Micky Arison saw the comments, considered the context, did not view them as directed his way.
That, of course, doesn't stop the conjecture. Because all things LeBron James, particularly when there is a perceived Miami Heat slant,...

Heat guard Dwyane Wade is so past the subject.
He scoffs every time the topic of maintenance program surfaces. Wade has a simple answer. When he's healthy, he will play. When he's not, he won't.
He refuses to look too far ahead.
"I've got a plan,"...
