What's buzzing:

Heat could be without James, Wade vs. Suns

The Miami Heat may be without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade for Saturday night's game against the Phoenix Suns, according to ESPN.com.

James is a game-time decision because of an illness and Wade is expected to miss the contest due to a foot sprain.

James tweeted Friday night that was sick. He posted a picture of himself wrapped up and said he had a headache and a stomach ache.

A bug has been making its way through the team since it began a six-game road trip. Wade missed last Sunday's game because of an illness.

James, who is also nursing a bruised shoulder, did not attend a Saturday morning shootaround. Wade also was not present.

Miami's next game is not until Wednesday against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, which could be enough time for James and Wade to return to the lineup.

Also, guard Mario Chalmers is expected to return from a triceps strain for Saturday's game. He missed most of Thursday's win against the Denver Nuggets because of the injury.
