The Heat are currently 9-4 on the young NBA season after beginning the year 5-0. A large part of their recent struggles have been a result of a foot injury that has bothered Wade for the past seven games, forcing him to sit out four of those contests. The Lakers, 10-5, are currently atop the Pacific Division of the Western Conference.
