Report: NBA will not discipline Miami Heat for sitting three starters

The NBA says it has no plans to discipline the Miami Heat for three starters sitting out last night's 88-86 victory against the San Antonio Spurs, reports CBSSports.com.

Heat forward LeBron James (right hamstring), guard Dwyane Wade (ankle) and guard Mario Chalmers (ankle) sat out the game, but forward Chris Bosh hit a three-pointer with less than two seconds left to secure the victory.

The last time the two teams met on Nov. 29, San Antonio rested starters Tim DuncanTony ParkerManu Ginobili and Danny Green and Miami went on to win the game 105-100.  The NBA fined San Antonio $250,000 for the incident because the team did not give the NBA or Miami prior notice of the players' absences.

The Heat have a four-game lead over the Spurs with nine games to go in the race for the league's best record.
