Heat likely to have Wade, not Allen vs Pacers

MGN Online

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Dwyane Wade will likely play at Indiana. Ray Allen may not.

Miami coach Erik Spoelstra says final decisions will be made just before Wednesday night's game.

Wade has missed the last two games with what he called a sore Achilles tendon. He practiced Tuesday and participated in Wednesday morning's shootaround, then iced his knees. He averages 19.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 50 games this season.

Allen is considered doubtful after coming down with the flu. He did not attend the morning shootaround, and Spoelstra plans to spend the afternoon "thinking about" how to divvy up time with the second unit if Allen does not play.

Indiana hosts Miami in Round 3 between the Eastern Conference's two best teams.
