New York Knicks
Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are returning to the Miami lineup, and Tyson Chandler is starting for New York when the Heat and Knicks meet Saturday in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series.
Wade has been out with a dislocated left index finger, and Bosh missed the season's final six games with a strained right hamstring. Chandler sat out the Knicks' practice in Miami on Friday because of flu-like symptoms.
Miami listed Wade, Bosh, LeBron James, Udonis Haslem and Mario Chalmers as starters. New York countered with Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, Iman Shumpert, Baron Davis and Chandler.
Miami's inactive players for Game 1 were Eddy Curry and Terrel Harris. New York's were Jeremy Lin and Toney Douglas, who has been battling a virus in recent days.

AROUND THE WEB
MIAMI -- There's a funny ESPN commercial from a few years back in which Miami guard Dwyane Wade keeps a SportsCenter host waiting while he puts together his perfect highlight.
With that in mind, it seemed to make sense to ask Wade if he has any clout about what highlights are shown about the Heat.
"I don't have no clout," Wade said.
Oh, well. If Wade did, he...
As far as Dwyane Wade is concerned, anything short of an NBA title for the Miami Heat would qualify as a lost season. “I say yes," Wade told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "There's only one champion. It's a failure for every other team. If you don't win a championship, you had a failed year." Teammate LeBron James wouldn’t go that far. "...
Thanks for the fresh gear T
Chris Bosh Has a Way with Body Language
Chris Bosh Gives Great Suspect Face
Chris Bosh recently peered down the hallway that links the Miami Heat locker room and the team's home court.
Though nearly a year has passed, he still feels the pain.
It's what the Heat call ''Championship Alley,'' the photo-covered walls paying tribute to the NBA championship run in 2006. For Bosh, it has a totally different meaning. It's the place...
No reminder is needed about 2006 when the Miami Heat are at home. Plastered all over all walls near the locker room are photos from their comeback Finals win that year over Dallas.
As for the last years Finals against the Mavericks, there are no physical reminders. But guard Dwyane Wade believes teammates need to think about that painful loss before they step on the floor for Saturdays...
Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh can't enjoy a nice quiet moment on the bench together without fans outside of South Beach trashing them. Check out Friday's #NESNcaption caption contest of the day winners below. Samantha Lemly Do you think we will win a champ!? No we suck but shhh don't tell anyone I said that James Matt Bodington Shhh im not really as good as...
MIAMI - Miami guard Dwyane Wade got the news during the middle of his game Saturday afternoon, and he was shaken.
Bulls guard Derrick Rose, like Wade a native of Chicago, had been seriously hurt earlier in the day against Philadelphia. He later was ruled out for the rest of the playoffs due to a torn ACL in his left knee.
Its very unfortunate, Wade said after his teams 100-67 win...
The NBA: Where Flopping Happens. If there's one thing that most NBA fans hate more than LeBron James, it's flopping. So when James hit the deck during Saturday's Heat-Knicks first-round clash, it sent the Twitter world into a frenzy. James' apparent flop came as the second quarter was winding down. With New York bringing the ball up the floor, Knicks center Tyson...
You have to love and respect this. The NBA has thrown together 100 seconds of glorious dance moves by NBA players including LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony. I’d love to see this compilation for the past 30 years or so and see the evolution of NBA dance.

I know the play was clearly a foul by Tyson Chandler, but LeBron did his own version of a soccer flop against the Knicks today. Chandler was moving (while setting a pick) which is a foul every time, but LeBron tried to draw a flagrant foul by falling down and acting like a little girl. Just pathetic. I'll be the first person to jump on LeBron because I've always hated...
10) Iman Shumpert's injury means that Dwyane Wade will have to roast some other Knick for the next three games9) Rajon Rondo's ref bump to non-suspension is about to give us the best example yet of how the Association favors the Celtics8) Dallas continues to believe that if Dirk Nowitzki isn't the best player in basketball, the refs should make him so7) Derrick Rose&...
With the likes of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Amar'e Stoudemire all looking to reignite a blazing hot Knicks-Heat playoffs rivalry, one would think the series would come down to each respective team's offensive firepower.But in game one of the first round matchup, that assumption wouldn't have been more wrong. The contest came down to nothing but defense...
The NBA put out the above video with the Boston Celtics' top 10 plays of the 2011-2012 regular season.
Did they get it right, or do you think any big plays are missing? Sound off in the comments.
I was sort of surprised that Avery Bradley's dunk on Kevin Durant didn't make the list, but at least they got his block on Dwyane Wade!
New York basketball is alive once again. Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler lead a Knicks squad that feels like they have something to prove. Under interim head coach Mike Woodson, the Knicks are 18-6, and playing inspired on both ends of the floor. After a dismal 18-24 start to the season, Mike D'Antoni was ousted and Woodson stepped in. New York is...
