Chris Bosh won't have the opportunity to stick it to his old team. And one of his SuperFriend teammates may be missing in action as well.

Bosh will miss his third consecutive game tonight when the Heat take on the Toronto Raptors in Miami. Bosh is out with a sprained ankle he suffered against the Bulls last week.

Dwyane Wade is questionable after missing today's shootaround because of an illness.

The Heat haven't had their trio healthy for almost two weeks after LeBron James injuried his ankle against the Clippers. LeBron has since returned and Wade played last against the Hawks, but the Heat have hit the skids. After ripping off 21 of 22 through December and January, the Heat have dropped four straight. All of this coming after LeBron's now famous karma tweet. Just saying.

However, with the struggling Raptors in town, a team that just took a 112-72 beating in Orlando last night, one would think the Heat would get by without one of their stars. Take away Wade though and things might be a little trickier.

Bosh out, Wade questionable with illness

Poor Lebron may need to play 44 minutes or more. He will likely be pretty moody after that type of demand.

I watched the Magic destroy Toronto last night. Miami should win without Wade and Bosh but don't be surprised if it isn't a closer game or maybe even a Toronto upset. The Magic had the frontcourt to utterly destroy the soft Toronto post players especially with Amir playing limited minutes. With Bosh and Wade out (if he is out), Toronto matches up quite nicely with a weak Miami roster as long as they can get a handle on Lebron.

Lebron will likely pull this one out pretty much singlehandedly. I would love though to see Derozen rise to the challenge of covering Lebron. The kid is very athletic and is Toronto's best hope to pull off an upset tonight.

Bosh out, Wade questionable with illness

The Heat could beat the Craptors with four guys on the floor.  Didn't they just get beat by 40 points?  Outside of the Cavs the Craptors are the joke of the NBA.

Who cares...?  They made the NBA a joke (along with the Melo debacle).

Bosh out, Wade questionable with illness

This doesn't mean anything. Lebron told me, he's so good, he can replace both Bosh and Wade at the same time.
