SB Nation Heat Blog: Peninsula is Mightier

All of the Big Three missed practice yesterday with various ailments. Many are expecting Dwayne Wade and LeBron James to play while Chris Bosh probably misses this game with his ankle injury. Of course, King James may wait until a nationally televised appearance for his return.

The Heat haven't played since Saturday and the Hawks had to play four starters 40+ minutes yesterday to pull out a victory against the Kings. Athletically the Hawks will have an advantage in the paint especially if Chris Bosh does miss the game. Of course it will be a moot point if Atlanta doesn't do a much better job defending from the outset. This is not a team that you can get by playing one quarter against.
