NEWS

Covers Preview - Miami hopes to have a pair of key figures back in the lineup as it continues its playoff push at Atlanta on Friday. Playing without Dwyane Wade (knee) and Hassan Whiteside (hand), the Heat managed to post a 93-86 win at Boston on Wednesday, strengthening their hold on seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Head coach Erik Spoelstra said Wade wanted to play against the Celtics and could be ready to go Friday, while Whiteside may need time for a gash that required 10 stitches to heal.
