The Miami Heat will be missing Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and Ronny Turiaf in tonight’s game against the Toronto Raptors, according to NBA.com.

Due to what the Heat are calling a “maintenance” program heading into the postseason, Wade, suffering from a variety of injuries, will sit out for the 14th time this season.

Bosh will sit out for his 4th game this season.  Turiaf will also sit out due to a sore hamstring. The Heat (43-17) are currently second in the Eastern Conference.  With six games left in the regular season, the Heat must continue to win if they want to overtake the first-place Chicago Bulls (46-15) to become the top seed for Eastern Conference playoffs.
