Heat stars LeBron James , Dwyane Wade  and Chris Bosh all have missed games recently due to injuries, illness or perhaps needed rest. However, all three are expected to be in the lineup Friday night when the Celtics  pay a visit to Miami.
While James (strained right hamstring), Wade (right knee bone bruises) and Bosh (flu-like symptoms) are expected back, Shane Battier  (assorted aches) and Udonis Haslem  (sprained ankle) are out.
Wade has missed the past six games for the Heat, who already have clinched the top seed in the East.
“I’m feeling good,” Wade told The Associated Press on Thursday. “The toughest part is mentally more so than physically. I played two weeks with it and eventually I felt it getting a little worse and I said, ‘OK, I’ve got to shut it down.’ ”
