NBA Finals: Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade 'ready to go' for Game 1
Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade are 'ready to go' for Thursday night's Game 1 of the NBA Finals, according to coach Erik Spoelstra at the Heat's morning's shootaround.
MIAMI -- Coach Erik Spoelstra said at the Heat's shootaround on Thursday morning that both Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade are "ready to go" for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs. Bosh had been hampered by an ankle tweak that bothered him late in the Eastern finals, and Wade has been dealing with a deep knee bruise for several months that has left him significantly hampered.
There's no indication of the condition of the injuries beyond the usual, "it's the playoffs, everyone's banged up." But Bosh and Wade both looked better at least in terms of their energy level for Game 7 against Indiana. With three days off since then, you have to assume there's a good chance they're in better condition, but Wade in particular hasn't been right for most of the season.
So there's no limitation on two members of the triad, as far as the Heat are concerned, but how much they can give Miami might go a long way in determining who takes the first game of the series.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals is at 9 p.m. ET Thursday.
