The Miami Heat have waived veteran guard Eddie House, clearing the way for rookies Terrel Harris and Mickell Gladness to make the opening-day roster.
Harris and Gladness said they were not sure of their fates until arriving for practice Saturday morning.
Harris shot 50 percent in Miami's two preseason games, including a team-best four 3-pointers. A 6-foot-11 center from Alabama A&M, Gladness had eight rebounds in 21 minutes during the preseason.
Also on the roster heading to Dallas for Sunday's opener: center Eddy Curry, who has appeared in only 10 games in the last three years.

The Miami Heat left no doubt that they intend to bring a championship trophy to South Beach this season, dominating the Dallas Mavericks in a rematch from last year’s NBA Finals from start to finish with a convincing 105-94 victory at the American Airlines Center.
Well, it wasn't exactly divine. Twenty-nine NBA teams were supposed to bow at the feet of Miami's LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
DALLAS (AP) -- LeBron James had 37 points, 10 rebounds and six assists as the Miami Heat got a measure of payback for the NBA finals by opening this season with a 105-94 victory over the Dallas Mavericks that wasn't as close as the score suggests.

The Miami HEAT beat the Dallas Mavericks, 105-94, on the NBA's opening day, but that was after the typical, and expected, late surge once most starters had been removed from the game. Through three quarters, the score was 97-65, with the HEAT using fewer than 80 possessions to get there. Those numbers are indicative enough of what happened on Christmas Day.
